MADISON, WI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 4, 2005 -- Anchor BanCorp Wisconsin Inc. (NASDAQ: ABCW) announced today that on August 2, 2005, it filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2005, meeting all compliance requirements for continued listing of its common stock on the Nasdaq Stock Market. Accordingly, the "E" appended to the trading symbol of the company's common stock will be removed, and the trading symbol will revert back to "ABCW" at the opening of business on August 5, 2005.

Anchor BanCorp previously reported that on July 1, 2005, it received a notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market stating that the company's common stock was subject to delisting because the company's Annual Report Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2005, had not been timely filed. Anchor's subsequent request for a hearing to appeal the delisting is no longer necessary.
