CECIL BANCORP, INC TO DEREGISTER ITS COMMON STOCK
Elkton, Maryland / December 31, 2013 – Cecil Bancorp, Inc. (OTCBB: CECB), today announced that it plans to deregister its common stock and suspend its reporting obligations under Securities Exchange Act of 1934. This decision was made in accordance with the new deregistration thresholds for bank holding companies contained in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of JOBS Act. Since the Company has fewer than 1,200 holders of record of its stock, it is able to deregister its common stock under the new rules.
The Company is taking this action in order to reduce the legal, accounting and administrative costs associated with being a reporting company. Terrie G. Spiro, President and Chief Executive Officer, said “The decision by the Board of Directors to deregister was made after careful consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of being a public reporting company and the high cost and demands on management’s time arising from compliance with our ongoing reporting requirements, including the costs associated with Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank compliance and other reporting requirements.”
The Company’s deregistration will be effective 90 days after the date of filing the Form 15, expected in January 2014. Upon filing the Form 15, the Company’s obligation to file certain reports and forms, including Forms 10-K, Forms 10-Q and Forms 8-K, will be suspended.
The Company anticipates that its common stock will continue to be quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board after deregistration. No guarantee, however, can be made that a trading market in the Company’s common stock through any over-the- counter market will be maintained.
The Company intends to continue to provide shareholders with financial information on a quarterly basis and annual basis through its website: www.cecilbank.com. In addition, the Company will continue to provide financial reports to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council, as required.
