Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)

Our strategy is simple: Everything in one place. First-class, full service, from beginning to end. No more headaches.

We started out buying and selling “used banks” – and it’s still one of our favorite things to do – but we have widened our expertise and are also a nationally recognized leader in branch sales and acquisitions. Our 25+ year history in the industry has taught us that M&A can be a headache for buyers and sellers with so many moving parts and potential complications. Here’s how we can help:

  • Provide regulatory consulting to get pre-approval by the appropriate regulatory agencies

  • Identify potential targets

  • Examine the financial aspects of the acquisition

  • Evaluate the feasibility of multiple transactions

  • Identify potential bidders

  • Manage due diligence

  • Manage contract negotiations

  • Work with your legal counsel on a letter of intent

  • Assist in negotiating the final purchase price

  • Collaborate with the acquirer and legal counsel on definitive bank acquisition agreement

  • Provide regulatory, lending, rebranding, project management and technical consulting to guide the transaction through closing and post-acquisition conversions

  • Provide integration management and systems migration assistance after deal closes.
