Save the Date for CBA’s Mergers & Acquisitions Workshop
November 13 in Anaheim

For the first time in years, many banks are starting to put M&A back into their strategic plans, thanks to improving market conditions: Interest rates are rising, valuations have improved, capital reserves are robust, and the stock market is strong. However, the M&A process has changed from pre-crisis days due, in part, to increased regulatory scrutiny and its impact on due diligence and transaction length.

Join us in November to hear from industry experts on the current M&A environment.  We will discuss critical issues to think about before, during, and after the merger and acquisition process.

  • Is it harder to get regulatory approval for a deal these days?
  • Will Basel III have an impact on M&A deals?
  • Once the deal is done, what are the most difficult aspects of the acquisition?

Topics to be covered during this workshop include:

  • Community banking performance trends and M&A updates
  • Critical changes in M&A and analytics
  • Compensation
  • Loan pricing risk in an acquisition
  • Culture and valuation
  • Keys to negotiation
  • Bankers perspective

We will offer this workshop on November 13 at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel where we’ve arranged for rates of $229 per night.
