This name change more closely aligns EQB's name with its wholly owned subsidiary Equitable Bank, Canada's Challenger Bank™, as well as its "EQ Bank" trade name.

"Changing our legal name continues the modernization of our brand, while allowing us to further differentiate ourselves in the market and stand out as a true challenger to the largest financial institutions in this country," said Andrew Moor, President and CEO of Equitable Bank. "This change better connects our operating businesses and reinforces for our customers, partners and brokers that we embrace a future where banking is done differently."

This applies to the holding company name only. The Equitable Bank and EQ Bank names are not changing. EQB's ticker symbols on the Toronto Stock Exchange will not change and no further action is needed from current shareholders.
