Merger transaction activity increased to 13 announcements in March from 5 announcements in February, which compares to 13 from both March 2020 and March 2019. Prices strengthened as buyers used their highly-valued stock as acquisition currency. Assuming a continued strengthening in public bank stocks, more M&A can be expected at higher prices.

Sheshunoff & Co Investment Banking has compiled a one-page summary of all bank transactions announced in March 2021. The list is sorted by geographical region, which will allow you to search for transactions not only in your area, but also throughout the country in markets similar to yours.
Given the volatility in publicly-traded bank stocks, many banks would benefit from obtaining a mid-year 2021 stock valuation to ensure an accurate assessment rather than rely on a valuation at prior year-end. Please contact us if we can be of service to you in any way during this transitional time.
If you have any questions or comments about today’s M&A market or would like to discuss various strategies for your institution including opportunities to issue low cost debt or raise new equity, we would enjoy the opportunity to speak with you.
