MidSouth Bancorp in Lafayette, La., plans to list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange.
The $1.9 billion-asset company's stock will transfer from the NYSE MKT exchange to the NYSE on Monday. It will keep its current ticker symbol, MSL.
NYSE MKT is a listing for small growth companies in the U.S. It changed its name from NYSE Amex last year.
"The enhanced trading distribution and prestige of the NYSE should provide long-term value to our shareholders," C.R. "Rusty" Cloutier, MidSouth's president and chief executive, said in a news release Thursday.
