The merger and acquisition environment for community banks has accelerated in the past eighteen months and is expected to continue at a strong pace over the next two years. Bank CEOs and board members must be fully prepared before they make or receive an offer in order to avoid unexpected and often negative results. Once a bank is at the bargaining table, a variety of items are negotiated simultaneously or in rapid succession, including sales price, leadership, employment agreements and compensation, regulatory and shareholder notices and challenges, accounting considerations on both sides of the deal and operational decisions. The purpose of this seminar is to acquaint bank and board leadership with the considerations they will face so that advanced planning will be thorough and execution will be successful.
