MANITOWOC – First
Manitowoc Bancorp Inc. on Tuesday said it’s changed its
corporate name to Bank First National Corp.
The Manitowoc-based bank’s name change is effective
immediately, according to a statement. Shareholders
approved the name change at the company’s annual meeting
on May 19, the statement said.
The company’s stock ticker trading symbol was changed to
“BFNC” on May 15.
"The company's board of directors and management team
agreed the name change of our holding company will
better align with the bank's name, the company's ticker
symbol, and will be less confusing to our customers and
potential investors outside of the Manitowoc County
market," said Mike Molepske, president and CEO. "Current
shareholders do not need to take any action regarding
their stock registration or dividends, nor will they
need new stock certificates issued."
