FIRST NBC BANK HOLDING COMPANY (NASDAQ:FNBC) Files An 8-K Bankruptcy or Receivership

Story continues below

Item 1.03. Bankruptcy or Receivership.

On April 28, 2017, First NBC Bank (the Bank), the wholly-owned
subsidiary of First NBC Bank Holding Company (the Company), was
closed by the Louisiana Office of Financial Institutions, and the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) was appointed as
receiver of the Bank.
The Companys principal asset is the capital stock that it owns in
the Bank, and, as a result of the closure of the Bank, the
Company has no material remaining tangible assets. As the owner
of all of the capital stock of the Bank, the Company would be
entitled to the net recoveries, if any, following the liquidation
or sale of the Bank or its assets by the FDIC. However, at this
time, the Company believes that no recovery will be realized with
respect to its investment in the Bank.
Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued
Listing Rule or Standard.
On May 1, 2017, the Company received a Nasdaq Staff Determination

Market LLC (Nasdaq) has determined that the Companys securities
will be delisted from the Nasdaq Global Select Market. Under
Nasdaq rules, the Company may request an appeal of the delisting
determination; however, it does not intend to do so. Therefore,
trading of the Companys common stock will be suspended at the
opening of business on May 10, 2017, and a Form 25-NSE will be
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
