RICHMOND, Ind., June 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, Inc. ("RMBI"), the proposed stock holding company for First Bank Richmond (the "Bank"), announced today that the First Mutual of Richmond, Inc. members approved the Plan of Reorganization and Stock Offering (the "Plan of Reorganization") pursuant to which the mutual holding company will convert to the stock holding company form of organization.  The members also approved the establishment of the First Bank Richmond, Inc. Community Foundation and the contribution of $6.25 million to the foundation, consisting of $1.25 million in cash and $5.0 million (500,000 shares) of RMBI common stock.

RMBI also announced that it expects to complete the sale of 13,026,625 shares of common stock at $10.00 per share, for gross offering proceeds of $130,266,250.  The offering was oversubscribed in the first priority category of the subscription offering by eligible account holders. Accordingly, eligible account holders will have valid orders filled in accordance with the allocation procedures described in the prospectus and as set forth in the Plan of Reorganization.  Neither supplemental eligible account holders as of March 31, 2019, nor any other subscribers will have their orders filled.  

If you are a subscriber in the first priority category and would like to confirm your allocation, this information will be available online at, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time on June 27, 2019.  You may also contact the stock information center at 1-(844) 265-9680 (toll free).  The stock information center will be open weekdays from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., Eastern Time.  Stock ownership statements and subscription refunds will be processed promptly after the close of the transaction.

The Bank's Employee Stock Ownership Plan ("ESOP") also was unable to purchase any shares in the offering as a result of the oversubscription. As a result, the ESOP intends to purchase, subject to regulatory approval, up to 1,082,130 shares of RMBI common stock in the aftermarket, equal to 8.0% of the shares sold in the offering and issued to the charitable foundation.

The reorganization and offering are expected to be completed on July 1, 2019 and the closing of the transaction is subject to the satisfaction of standard closing conditions.  RMBI anticipates that its common stock (CUSIP Number 76525P 100) will begin trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol "RMBI" on July 2, 2019.  

The subscription offering was managed by Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc., and Silver, Freedman, Taff & Tiernan LLP acted as counsel to First Mutual of Richmond, Inc., RMBI and First Bank Richmond.  Luse Gorman, P.C., Washington, D.C., served as counsel to Keefe, Bruyette & Woods Inc.
