2017 Bank M&A Statistics

January 3, 2018

by: Robert Klingler

It looks like we’ll end 2017 with a total of 263 bank and thrift transactions, representing a slight increase in the number of deals over 2016 (250), but well below 2014 and 2015 levels (307 and 294, respectively).  However, in light of the decline in total number of banks (and the dearth of de novo activity), 2017 basically equaled 2014 and 2015 transaction activity, with approximately 4.5% of institutions at the beginning of the year exiting through a business combination.  (2016’s 250 transactions represented approximately 4.0% of the outstanding banks at the beginning of 2016.)

the-bank-accountOn the latest episode of The Bank Account, Jonathan and I analyzed the Rose Bowl, pitting Jonathan’s Georgia Bulldogs against Jonathan’s In-Laws’ Oklahoma Sooners.  With critical generational analysis, Jonathan won me over to support Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs; I simply have to support Generation X over a Millennial. We then turned our focus to on-topic banking issues: the impact of tax reform on Subchapter S banks and a look in review at the 2017 banking m&a market.

For Subchapter S institutions, tax reform offers/requires a re-evaluation of the tax consequences of a Subchapter

the-bank-accountOn the latest episode of The Bank Account, Jonathan and I discuss some of the key trends from the first six months of 2017 with regard to the banking industry.  Topics covered include:

  • stock market performance (banks down for the six months, but still way up over the last 12 months);
  • merger and acquisition activity (same number but larger than last year, plus a more in depth look at North Carolina);
  • de novo activity (or lack thereof);
  • regulatory relief (and definitely lack thereof); and
  • capital raise activity (going strong).

We also congratulate each other
