Seeks Increased Trading Volume and Means to Enhanced Valuation

John Marshall Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQB: JMSB) (the "Company"), parent company of John Marshall Bank (the "Bank"), announced today that it intends to become a publicly-traded company, including potentially listing its shares on the Nasdaq or NYSE stock exchange. The Company anticipates becoming a publicly-traded company within the next twelve to fifteen months. The exact timing is contingent upon a number of factors, including but not limited to, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s registration process, equity market conditions and stock exchange listing requirements.

Chris Bergstrom, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Since 2006, John Marshall Bank has established a reputation as a growth company. As we embark on our next stage of growth we believe it is important to have increased access to capital and better liquidity for our shareholders. We believe that becoming a publicly-traded company and listing on an exchange will help us meet these objectives, including by potentially making our stock eligible for future inclusion in a stock market index. If included in an index, we would anticipate greater demand for our stock, higher trading volume and increased ability to enhance value for shareholders."
