ALI CLE webinar: “Community Bank M&A: Compliance in an Improving Market”

This event has already occurred.

Momentum for mergers is building among regional and community banks. Credit quality has improved and negotiated deals appear to be on the rise.

The focus is on parties understanding the current state of the M&A Market, including deal activity and evolving deal and regulatory issues. Bank deals must be more carefully negotiated and prepared for than ever, thanks to regulatory reform, residual troubled assets, enhanced regulatory scrutiny, and increased litigation risk.

During this webinar, experienced financial services professionals discussed the improving M&A environment among regional and community banks and how a client can take advantage of the improving economic outlook to forge a successful transaction.

Topics discussed:

  • state of the M & A market
  • issues presenting the most difficulty in current deals
  • current challenges in the regulatory approval process
  • critical importance of advanced preparation—tools and tips
