Bank Deals – The M&A Market
You have been invited to bid on a bank for sale.
How are you determining what to pay?
Is this how everyone is doing it?
Someone has written you a “bear hug” letter offering to buy your bank. What does it mean?
How did they determine the price?
Topics to be discussed include:
- How banks are being valued in today’s market—not that theoretical stuff but what’s happening in the real world.
- Based on that pricing, what is the accounting treatment of the deal . . . and how does it affect your capital?
