CHINO, Calif., June 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chino Commercial Bancorp (OTC-Pink:CCBC) announced today that it has commenced its previously announced rights offering.  The Company is offering up to 307,883 shares of its common stock on a “best efforts” basis at a purchase price of $15.00 per share, and is distributing non-transferable subscription rights to existing shareholders to purchase all 307,883 of such shares, plus certain “bonus” shares as described further below.  The Company is offering the shares first to existing shareholders pursuant to the subscription rights and a related over-subscription privilege, and then (if any shares remain available) to other interested investors.  While the purchase price in all cases is $15.00 per share, persons exercising subscription rights or over-subscription privileges will receive a bonus equal to five percent (5%) of the number of shares at no additional cost.
