Sheshunoff & Co Investment Banking has compiled a one-page summary of all bank transactions announced in May 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 stocks, many banks would benefit from obtaining a mid-year 2021 stock valuation to ensure an accurate assessment rather than rely on a valuation prior to year-end. Please contact to us if we can be of service to you in any way during this transactional time.
