Given the continued tough economic environment, traditional bank M&A activity has been relatively slow. The bank M&A transaction du jour has been the FDIC assisted deal, and these types of transactions are getting more competitive. The FDIC has been making structural changes to the bidding process, but potential buyers have adjusted their bidding methodology accordingly. Presented by Michael Perdue of Pacific Western Bank, an experienced acquirer who has completed several FDIC assisted transactions; Susan Cordonnier, an accountant from Perry-Smith LLP who can provide advice on the complicated fair market value accounting treatment; Jeffrey Wishner, an investment banker from Keefe, Bruyette & Woods who has successfully advised clients on the bidding process; and Gary Miller, an FDIC representative from the Division of Resolutions and Receiverships.
