About Merchants & Marine Bank


Merchants & Marine Bank (M&M Bank) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Merchants & Marine Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQX: MNMB), a Mississippi based bank holding company.  Unlike most banks, M&M Bank was re-established in the middle of the worst economic disaster in the history of the United States.  Despite those circumstances, in 1932 a small group of Pascagoula citizens saw the potential of the local area, considered the risk of probable failure, and then made the bold commitment to provide dependable financial services to the people and businesses in the area. More than eight decades later, M&M Bank has grown from $25,000 in assets to almost $600 million and from 2 offices to 13 locations in Jackson and George Counties in Mississippi and Baldwin County in Alabama. Along the way M&M Bank has earned numerous awards, including a listing in the U.S. Banker Magazine as a Top 200 Community Bank and multiple 5-Star Superior Ratings from Bauer Financial, Inc.
