Program Materials

This CLE webinar will discuss current trends in bank M&As, the legal and regulatory hurdles that must be considered, the different ways banks can approach and structure a merger or consolidation deal, and best practices for due diligence.

Description

The past year has shown a marked increase in bank mergers and acquisitions. Regulatory and market conditions have made consolidation more attractive, and small and mid-sized banks are trying to achieve greater efficiency and scale to compete with larger banks, particularly in the investment in technology.

Regulatory hurdles have eased for regional and community banks, but proper pre-merger planning is critical to ensure compliance with current regulations and to avoid adversely affecting the deal. Private equity firms and hedge funds looking to acquire banks face additional regulatory scrutiny.

Bank M&A deals are structured similarly to other industries but vary in critical ways. The assets, which may include complex loans and financial instruments, require a particular level of due diligence. Bank-specific covenants and reps and warranties are crucial. Counsel must understand the market and legal risks specific to bank transactions.

Listen as our authoritative panel of attorneys discusses trends and opportunities in bank M&As, regulatory hurdles, and best practices for due diligence.
