EVANSVILLE, Ind., April 15, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra Bank Corporation (Nasdaq:IBNK) today reported that it was delisting its common stock from The NASDAQ Capital Market and that the stock is expected to begin trading on the OTCQB™ Marketplace effective with the opening of business on May 2, 2011.

As previously disclosed, the Company received notification from the NASDAQ Stock Market ("Nasdaq") that the Company was not in compliance with minimum standards for shareholders' equity, as set forth in Listing Rule 5550(b) for continued listing of the Company's common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market. The notification indicated that the Company had 45 calendar days, or until May 5, 2011, to submit a plan to regain compliance with the standard for continued listing set forth in Listing Rule 5550(b).   The Company is also currently not in compliance with Marketplace Rule 5450(a)(1), which requires that the trading price exceed $1.00 per share for a ten day period. 

After considering its available options to regain compliance, the Company concluded that efforts to secure a continuation of the current listing of its common stock were not in its best interests. The Company notified Nasdaq on April 15, 2011 of its intention to voluntarily delist its common stock from The NASDAQ Capital Market, and to file a Form 25 with the SEC and Nasdaq on April 20, 2011. The Company expects that trading of its common stock will be suspended from The NASDAQ Capital Market at the open of market trading on May 2, 2011.
