Exhibit 99.1


MVB Financial Corp. Announces Subordinated Debt Redemption

(FAIRMONT, W.Va.) July 17, 2019 - The Board of Directors of MVB Financial Corp. (“MVB Financial” or “MVB”) (NASDAQ: MVBF) today announced the intention to redeem $12.4 million in subordinated debt, which was issued in June 2014.

On July 10, 2019, MVB received a notice of non-objection from the Federal Reserve for the redemption of the outstanding subordinated debt. MVB intends to provide notice to the holders of the notes that the outstanding balances will be redeemed on September 30, 2019.

MVB continues to carve a niche in the fintech industry by making strategic investments in fintech companies. In April 2019, MVB announced that after a recent valuation of MVB’s fintech investment portfolio, MVB recognized a pre-tax gain on its equity investment of $13.5 million that was recognized in the Second Quarter of 2019. This gain is what has allowed MVB to redeem the subordinated debt, and it creates a positive impact for shareholder value by not diluting with additional shares.
“This is another example of MVB’s model going beyond traditional banking and leveraging the disruption occurring in the financial services industry to the benefit of MVB shareholders. At MVB, we take our commitment to the success of our shareholders very seriously and are honored to be their trusted partner on the financial frontier,” said Larry F. Mazza, President and CEO, MVB Financial Corp.
