Mergers Webinars

Community Bank Mergers & Acquisitions Seminar

Apr 24 - Apr 25, 2023 | LIVE EVENT

This two-day, in-person workshop will include significant participant interaction with a “hands-on” approach. Be prepared to explore all aspects of the current community bank M&A environment from both a buyer’s and seller’s perspective. Review real-life case studies and work through financial models, as well as a sample acquisition transaction.

The community bank mergers and acquisitions landscape has never looked like it does today.

Community banks that are considering engaging in a merger or acquisition transaction — as either a buyer, seller, or in a merger of equals — should fully understand the current environment and the various strategic issues that must be considered.

Even if you intend to remain independent, understanding the M&A market will help prepare your organization for the future.

Learning objectives:

  • Strategic considerations for buying and selling
  • Valuation and contract negotiation
  • Common mistakes of buyers and sellers
  • Maximizing value as a buyer or seller
  • Financial analysis and operational integration
  • Practical considerations such as management changes, social integration, disgruntled stockholders, regulatory approval, etc.
  • Considerations for remaining independent
