MADISON, Wis., Aug. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anchor BanCorp Wisconsin Inc. today announced that its last remaining legacy regulatory enforcement action has been terminated as of July 31, 2014.

"The lifting of these legacy enforcement actions confirms Anchor's stunning turn-around and underlines that we are again open for business," said Chris Bauer, President & CEO of Anchor BanCorp and AnchorBank. "Our bank is firmly focused on the future, and we look forward to continuing to serve our customers and communities with distinction."
