·3 min read

CW Bancorp ("Bancorp") (OTC: CWBK) announced today the completion of its previously announced holding company reorganization. Following shareholder approval and receipt of all requisite regulatory approvals, the holding company reorganization has been finalized and CommerceWest Bank (the "Bank") is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bancorp. As a result, existing shares of the Bank were automatically converted on a one-for-one basis into shares of Bancorp and the previous shareholders of the Bank now own all of the outstanding shares of Bancorp. Shares of CW Bancorp trade under the same trading symbol previously used by the Bank.

"We are pleased to have completed the holding company reorganization and believe that this reorganization is in the best interest of our shareholders by providing us with additional corporate flexibility," said Ivo Tjan, Chairman and CEO of the Bank. There has been no change in the Bank’s directors or executive officers following the reorganization and the Bancorp’s directors and officers are the same as the Bank’s immediately prior to the reorganization.
