WBA is pleased to host a comprehensive M&A workshop led by the country’s leading experts at KBW. This intensive three-hour program will focus on current bank M&A trends and predictions for 2021 and feature a 360-degree review of a fictional bank’s strategic alternatives (stay independent, be a buyer, consider an MOE or sell) to illustrate the entire M&A process from assessing the franchise on an independent basis to identifying targets for a potential buyside deal to evaluating other types of transactions such as merger of equals and a sale. Attendees will be provided with “technical” checklists and have a thorough understanding of the stages, considerations, processes, analysis, contracts, control agreements and social issues to be sensitive to in a M&A transaction.
This workshop is now Free for all WBA Bank Members.

We have also seen communities and businesses coming together to help each other and adapt in ways we never thought would be possible.
