About Vining Sparks Community Bank Advisory Group
Vining Sparks Community Bank Advisory Group (www.viningsparks.com/communitybankadvisorygroup) works with community financial institutions throughout the U.S. Our Investment Banking Professionals provide comprehensive financial advisory services to assist companies in achieving their strategic objectives which may include mergers or acquisitions, branch divestitures, stock buybacks, stock option plans, among others. Our Investment Banking professionals have executed over 300 M&A transactions and more than 3,000 stock valuations during their careers. We offer a comprehensive suite of investment banking services.
As the U.S. economy continues on the road to recovery, a combination of factors – high corporate cash balances, low interest rates, slow loan growth, unutilized capital commitments, and pending rules under the Dodd-Frank Act – point to an uptick in M&A activity. While this presents an opportunity for lenders, private equity investors, buyers and sellers, they also need to know how the economic environment will affect dealmaking in 2013.
In The Knowledge Group’s “Bank Mergers: Significant Issues for 2013 and Beyond,” a panel of thought leaders, will discuss the step-by-step processes of M&A transactions, explain the common regulatory hurdles associated with these complex undertakings, and offer strategic insights for getting the deal done.
