Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) May 23, 2006
The Bank of Greenwich, a new full-service state-chartered commercial bank to be headquartered in Greenwich, announced today that it has received subscriptions from investors in excess of the minimum number of shares ($10,000,000) in its initial stock offering. The Bank has also extended the stock offering period in order to give potential investors, who missed the April deadline, a chance to make an investment during this final extension.
Stephen C. Thurlow, Chairman of the Organizing Group, said, “The fact that we met our initial capital goal prior to our deadline – and met it with investors who are genuinely energized – is confirmation of a substantial need here in Greenwich. We need a homegrown, hometown Greenwich bank that provides the respect and service customers deserve. The Bank will use the coming weeks to ensure everyone who wants to be a part of investing in The Bank of Greenwich has the opportunity to do so.”
This is a unique opportunity to invest in the only bank headquartered in Greenwich – Greenwich's "hometown" bank. The Bank of Greenwich brings together an outstanding team of professionals with banking and financial experience and strong ties to the community.
