Esquire held its $33.1 million initial public offering last month on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The company had priced its IPO at $14 per share.

The bank said in a regulatory filing before the IPO that it would use the proceeds from the event to expand its loan portfolio, finance potential acquisitions and for general corporate purposes.

The company’s shares were up less than 1 percent to $14.75 in midday trading.
