Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year
(a) On May 7, 2013, Monarch Community Bancorp, Inc. (Monarch) filed Articles of Amendment to Monarchs charter with the State of Maryland to consummate a one for five reverse stock split of its common stock. Pursuant to the reverse stock split, each holder of Monarch common stock will receive 1 share of common stock for every 5 shares owned on the effective date of the reverse stock split, with fractional shares rounded up to the next whole share. The reverse split will be effective as of May 28, 2013, and Monarch anticipates that its common stock will begin trading on a split adjusted basis when the market opens on May 28, 2013. Beginning on that date, Monarchs common stock is expected to trade for a period of twenty (20) trading days under the ticker symbol MCBFD, after which it is expected to revert to trading under the ticker symbol MCBF. The common shares will also trade under a new CUSIP number.
As a result of the reverse stock split, the number of outstanding common shares will be reduced from 2,049,485 to 409,897, subject to adjustment for fractional shares. The reverse stock split will not affect any stockholders ownership percentage of Monarchs common shares, except to the limited extent that the reverse stock split would result in any stockholder owning a greater number of shares as a result of the rounding up of fractional shares to the nearest whole share. As provided by the Maryland General Corporation Law, stockholder approval is not required. After the reverse stock split takes effect, stockholders holding physical share certificates will receive instructions from Registrar and Transfer Company, Monarchs exchange agent, regarding the process for exchanging their shares.
A copy of the Articles of Amendment is attached as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
On May 7, 2013, Monarch issued a press release describing, among other things, the reverse split. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
