Dan Yates, CEO, stated, “We continue to see investor interest in terms of potential investors attending capital presentations and new investors buying in. However, it’s time to close out the capital raise and put that money to work growing the bank.” Yates further stated, “While managing the capital raise ourselves without an investment banker or professional money raiser was the right strategy for growing our diverse local shareholder base, it’s time for management and the Endeavor team to get back to our primary responsibility of creating the best local business bank in the San Diego market.”
Steve Sefton, President, added, “Including over $1 million subscribed for in this round by the Endeavor Board of Directors, we currently have over $7.9 million in our capital raise impound account.” Sefton concluded, “While that number is less than the $12 million we originally proposed as our minimum goal, we are more than satisfied with what we accomplished together with our new and original investors.”
The minimum proceeds from the offering have been reduced from $12 million to $6 million. As a result of the reduction in the size of the offering, before any subscription applications may be accepted by the Bank, the applicants are being asked to reconfirm their subscriptions on or before March 23, 2020. The Bank will not accept any additional subscriptions after February 21, 2020. The Bank expects that sufficient reconfirmations of subscription applications will be received on or before March 23, 2020, for the offering to close with proceeds of at least $6 million.
