CHICAGO, Jan. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MB Financial, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:MBFI) announced today it will redeem all of the outstanding shares of its Perpetual Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock, Series A (the “Series A Preferred Stock”) (NASDAQ:MBFIP) (CUSIP No. 55264U207). There are currently 4,000,000 outstanding shares of the Series A Preferred Stock.

The Series A Preferred Stock will be redeemed on February 15, 2018 (the “Redemption Date”) at a redemption price (the “Redemption Price”) of $25.00 per share ($100,000,000 in the aggregate). Since the Redemption Date is also a dividend payment date, the Redemption Price does not include any declared and unpaid dividends. A declared dividend of $0.50 per share, for the current quarterly dividend period from and including November 15, 2017 to but excluding February 15, 2018 will be paid separately in the customary manner on February 15, 2018 to holders of record of the Series A Preferred Stock as of January 31, 2018.

Upon redemption, the Series A Preferred Stock will no longer be deemed outstanding, no further dividends will accrue on the Series A Preferred Stock and the only remaining right of the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock will be to receive payment of the Redemption Price, without interest. Trading of the Series A Preferred Stock on the NASDAQ Stock Market also will cease.

The redemption will be funded with a portion of the net proceeds of the Company’s public offering of depositary shares, each representing a 1/40th interest in a share of the Company’s 6.00% Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series C, which was completed on November 22, 2017.

All shares of the Series A Preferred Stock are held in book-entry form through The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”). Accordingly, the Series A Preferred Stock will be redeemed in accordance with the applicable procedures of DTC. Notice of the redemption and payment of the aggregate Redemption Price will be made to DTC on the Company’s behalf by Computershare, as redemption agent (the “Redemption Agent”). The address of the Redemption Agent is Attention: Corporate Actions, 250 Royall Street, Canton, MA 02021, and its telephone number is 1-866-241-9990 (1-201-680-6578 outside the United States and Canada).
