Company Release - 9/18/2018 9:46 AM ET

CHICAGO, Sept. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MB Financial, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: MBFI) announced today that it received the requisite approvals of its common stockholders for the Company’s pending merger with Fifth Third Bancorp (“Fifth Third”) at a special meeting of the Company’s stockholders held today.  Detailed voting results will be provided in a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission within the next four business days.

Completion of the merger remains subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.  Upon completion of the transaction, each outstanding share of the Company’s common stock will be converted into the right to receive 1.45 shares of Fifth Third common stock and $5.54 in cash. Because the preferred stockholders of the Company did not return enough votes to reach the two-thirds majority to approve a merger of the Company into one of Fifth Third’s subsidiaries, the Company will become a subsidiary of Fifth Third and each outstanding share of the Company’s preferred stock will remain outstanding as preferred stock of the Company. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019.
