ST. LOUIS, December 13, 2021 – Parkside Financial, Inc. (the “Company”), the holding company for Parkside Financial Bank & Trust (the “Bank”), announced today the completion of its private placement of $13.0 million in fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes due 2031 (the “Notes”).  The Notes bear a fixed rate of 3.25% for the first five years and will reset quarterly thereafter to the then current three-month SOFR rate plus 219 basis points.

James Wagner, President of the Company and Chief Executive Officer of the Bank stated “We are thrilled that Parkside’s historical performance and strong balance sheet created significant demand for the Notes, resulting in a materially over-sold placement completed in just two days at record-low rates.  We look forward to utilizing this equity to grow our team and continue our upward trajectory.”  

The Company expects to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund organic growth, support regulatory capital ratios, and for general corporate purposes. The Notes are intended to qualify as Tier 2 capital for the Company for regulatory purposes.

Piper Sandler served as the sole placement agent for the offering and was advised by Holland & Knight LLP.  The Company was advised by Armstrong Teasdale LLP.
