CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eagle Financial Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: EFBI), the holding company for Eagle Savings Bank, today announced its decision to voluntarily delist its common stock from the NASDAQ Stock Market (“NASDAQ”). The Company has notified NASDAQ of its intent to voluntarily delist. The Company intends to file a Form 25 (Notification of Removal from Listing) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on or about December 20, 2019. The Company expects the last trading day of its shares of common stock on NASDAQ will be on or about December 20, 2019. The Company’s common stock will continue to be registered under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, and the Company’s obligation to file reports with the SEC, including Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K, will continue. Following NASDAQ delisting, the Company expects its shares will be quoted on the OTCQB Marketplace under the symbol “EFBI” beginning on or about December 23, 2019.
The Company’s Board of Directors authorized the delisting after concluding that the significant cost of listing on NASDAQ outweighed the current benefits of NASDAQ listing. The Board of Directors believes that the expense reduction of delisting will benefit the Company and its stockholders and serve to enhance the long-term value of the Company.
