JD Bancshares, Inc. Announces Completion of $30.0 Million Subordinated Debt Offering
Jennings, La., December 15, 2021 (ACCESSWIRE) – JD Bancshares, Inc. (OTCQX: JDVB), the parent company of JD Bank, today announced the closing of a $30.0 million private placement of fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes. The Company intends to use the net proceeds to redeem existing debt of $17.5 million, currently priced at 6.75%, and for general corporate purposes, which may include share repurchases and providing capital to the Bank to support growth.
The notes have a maturity date of December 15, 2031 and carry a fixed rate of interest of 3.75% for the first five years. Interest will be paid semi-annually beginning June 15, 2022. On December 15, 2026, the interest rate will reset quarterly to an interest rate per annum equal to the then current Three-Month Term Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) plus 264 basis points, payable quarterly in arrears. The notes include a right of prepayment, without penalty, on or after December 15, 2026. The subordinated notes have been structured to qualify as Tier 2 capital for regulatory purposes.
President and Chief Executive Officer Bruce W. Elder discussed the offering: “We are pleased to announce the successful completion of our subordinated debt offering. This new capital is non-dilutive to current shareholders and enhances our ability to continue to execute our growth strategies. The current low interest rate environment allowed us to add an additional $12.5 million in subordinated debt to that which is being redeemed without incurring any additional interest expense.”
Piper Sandler & Co served as the sole placement agent for the private offering. The Company was advised by Fenimore Kay Harrison, LLP.
