Item 8.01  Other Information

         As previously announced,  QCR Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") intends to
establish  a new  banking  subsidiary,  Rockford  Bank  and  Trust  Company,  in
Rockford,  Illinois. In connection with the new bank, the Company is offering up
to 260,000  shares of common  stock to certain  investors  pursuant to a private
placement.  The stock is being  offered  at a price of $19.50 per share and will
not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (the  "Securities  Act"). Net
proceeds from the offering  after payment of fees and expenses will be available
for investment in the new bank. The Company  expects the offering to close on or

         The shares of common stock to be offered have not been registered under
the Securities Act, or any state securities laws, and unless so registered,  may
not be offered or sold in the United  States  except  pursuant  to an  exemption
from, or in a transaction not subject to, the  registration  requirements of the
Securities Act and applicable  state  securities  laws.  This Form 8-K shall not
constitute  an offer to sell or the  solicitation  of an offer to buy nor  shall
there be any sale of any of the  securities  referred  to herein in any state in
which such offer,  solicitation  or sale would be unlawful prior to registration
or qualification under securities laws of any state.


         Pursuant to the  requirements  of the Securities  Exchange Act of 1934,

undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
