Bank Acquisition Services
Interested in purchasing a commercial bank? Let our experience and contacts work for you!
Many businesses could use a lower cost of funds or the advantages that ownership of a commercial bank provides to increase profitability. WNC works closely with commercial banks and in particular small to mid-size commercial banks. Our relationships with these banks have provided us with the opportunity to develop an active business assisting banks in locating a buyer or groups in their acquisition of a commercial bank. We specialize in working with the following types of transactions:
Purchase of Bank by Mortgage Banker– Ownership of a commercial bank provides the mortgage lender with a lower funding cost and if structured correctly a significant licensing advantage. Whether you are interested in the purchase of a minority interest, majority interest, or 100% ownership, we can help. Whether you are looking for a small bank that minimizes your investment or a larger bank that maximizes your funding capacity, we can help.
Purchase of a Bank by a Leasing Company– Purchase of a commercial bank can provide you with a significantly lower cost of funds as well as access to additional funding.
Sale of Small Bank for Attractive Multiples– Are your shareholders interested in selling at higher multiples? We can help you locate a strategic buyer where a higher multiple makes sense for the buyer.
Sale of a Minority Interest to Allow for Higher Earnings– We work with prospective buyers that would be interested in the purchase of a minority interest where they believe they can drive higher overall earnings for the bank through their current operations.
Growth by Acquisition– Looking to add banks either in your market or outside of your market? We are surfacing banks that would be open to an acquisition that you may not know about. Let us help you grow.
