Burke & Herbert Financial Services Corp. Submits Nasdaq Capital Market® Application and Files Form 10 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

March 2, 2023

Alexandria, VA – Burke & Herbert Financial Services Corp. (the “Company”) (OTCPK: BHRB), the bank holding company for Burke & Herbert Bank & Trust Company, announced that it submitted an application to list its common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market®. The Company also filed a Registration Statement on Form 10 (the “Form 10”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to register its common stock under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “1934 Act”). The Form 10 filing provides information on the strategy and historical financial data of the Company. Upon the effectiveness of the Form 10, the Company will be subject to the reporting requirements of the 1934 Act and, as a result, will file periodic reports and other information with the SEC.

These actions follow the Company’s November 15, 2022, announcement of the Company’s intention to become a publicly-traded, exchange-listed company. The approval and timing of any listing is contingent upon fulfilling Nasdaq requirements and the Company successfully registering its common stock with the SEC. Until such time, the Company’s common shares will continue to be quoted on the OTCPK Market.   

From David P. Boyle, Company Chair, President and Chief Executive Officer
