SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., Aug. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quaint Oak Bank, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Quaint Oak Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQX:QNTO), announced the strategic acquisition of the renewal rights to the book of business produced and serviced by Signature Insurance Services, LLC (Signature), an independent insurance agency located in New Britain, Pa, that provides a broad range of personal and commercial insurance coverage solutions.
Effective August 1, 2016, Quaint Oak Insurance Agency, LLC (Quaint Oak Insurance), a member of the Quaint Oak family of companies, acquired the book of business, location and staff of Signature, providing the same service and experienced staff and agents its customers have come to expect.

Quaint Oak Insurance will ensure a seamless transition for Signature’s customers by maintaining personnel and substantially all current service offerings.
“It is with great enthusiasm that we formally announce this transaction between our firms. Signature has amassed an impressive reputation in the region and among its customer base,” said President and CEO of Quaint Oak Bank, Robert T. Strong. “We look forward to upholding, and building upon, the values and exceptional service that initially caught my eye, and ultimately, led us here today.”
As part of Quaint Oak Bank’s continuing expansion and during the year of its 90th Charter Anniversary, the acquisition marks the commencement of activities by Quaint Oak Insurance, the Bank’s fourth subsidiary company. The strategic decision to acquire Signature’s book of business came when both firms saw an opportunity to expand their services with a partner that maintained a similar business culture.
