Howard Bancorp Raises $36 Million in Oversubscribed Stock Offering

Howard Bancorp Inc. raised $36 million in its public stock offering as investors bought more shares than the Ellicott-City based banking company had planned to sell.

The parent of Howard Bank announced plans on Wednesday to raise $30 million in the offering, but said Friday it wound up being oversubscribed. Howard sold 2.4 million shares at $15 each.

Shares will be delivered of Feb. 1.

Howard plans to use the proceeds to boost the bank’s capital for lending and investment, to repay debt and to support future acquisitions.
