To our clients and friends:

On March 21, the FDIC proposed revisions to its Statement of Policy on Bank Merger Transactions, which are intended to provide guidance on how the agency reviews merger applications under the Bank Merger Act. Our Client Alert describes the most relevant aspects of the new policy statement and includes key takeaways that will be important for banks considering future merger and acquisition activity. Our Alert regarding the FDIC’s proposed changes to its policy statement process is available here.
