Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Shares of Indianapolis-based First Internet Bancorp slipped in their first day on the NASDAQ exchange, dropping 2.5 percent during trading on Friday.

Shares finished the day at $28.50, a 75-cent decline from their opening price of $29.25.

The parent of First Internet Bank announced in December that it had filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission to make the move to NASDAQ from the over-the-counter board. Its new ticker symbol is INBK.

The shares had been listed on the thinly traded over-the-counter market under the FIBP ticker since 2005. Shares closed Thursday at $27.74 each.

Chairman and CEO David Becker founded First Internet Bank in 1999. The bank has no branches and has 102 employees at its headquarters at 9200 Keystone Crossing.

"We are pleased to be joining NASDAQ, as it includes more regional and community banks than any other U.S. exchange,” Becker said in a prepared statement. ”The board of directors believes that our plan to move from the over-the-counter market to NASDAQ will improve the visibility of our stock and enhance trading liquidity in our shares, which provides a long-term benefit to our shareholders."

On Tuesday, First Internet announced plans to add 48 jobs as part of a $4.3 million expansion into Fishers.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
