FDIC Assisted Transactions
Sandler O’Neill is one of the leading financial advisors to acquirers of failed banks from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Spurred by the economic downturn and accompanying stresses on the banking system, there have been numerous bank failures in recent years.
Acquisitions of these failed banks present significant growth opportunity with much of the credit risk mitigated through FDIC loss-sharing agreements. Since assisted transactions have unique financial, accounting, legal, regulatory, tax and operational issues, it is important for acquirers to work with an advisor that has extensive experience.
