Sturgis Bancorp, Inc. Postpones Annual Meeting

March 25, 2020 GMT

STURGIS, Mich., March 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sturgis Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQX: STBI) announced today that it will not hold its 2020 annual meeting of shareholders on April 28, 2020, as originally scheduled. This decision was taken based upon the rapid spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections and Michigan Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order to stay-at-home because “there is an increased risk of rapid spread of COVID-19 among persons in close proximity to one another.”

The health of the shareholders, the Sturgis Bancorp employees, and others involved with the shareholders’ meeting is of utmost importance. In postponing this event, Sturgis Bancorp is contributing towards the objective of slowing down the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) by avoiding highly attended events.

The meeting will be held at a later date to be determined. Once a new date is chosen by the board of directors, Sturgis Bancorp will announce the record date and the new date, the time and location of the annual meeting, and send the 2020 Proxy Statement and related materials. Sturgis Bancorp’s Annual Report will be distributed in the near future when printing is completed, although it is already available at www.sturgis.bank.
