09:02 EDTRBS, USBU.S. Bancorp acquires Chicago branch banking ops of RBS Citizens Financial
U.S. Bancorp (USB) announced today that its lead bank, U.S. Bank National Association, has reached an agreement to acquire the Chicago branch banking operations of the Charter One Bank franchise owned by RBS Citizens Financial Group (RBS). The acquisition includes Charter One’s Chicago retail branch network, small business operations, and select middle market relationships. Once complete, the acquisition will nearly double U.S. Bank’s deposit market share in the Chicago metro area. Under the terms of this transaction, U.S. Bank will acquire approximately $5.3B of deposits, $1.1B of loans, 94 branches, and 800 employees for a deposit premium of approximately $315M, or 6%. At close, U.S. Bank will have combined deposits of approximately $11.3B in Chicago. Approximately 35 percent of the $5.3B of acquired deposits are non-interest bearing and NOW accounts; 48 percent are money market and savings accounts; and 17% are time deposits. This acquisition is expected to meet or exceed U.S. Bancorp’s internal financial hurdles for internal rate of return and earnings per share accretion. This transaction is subject to regulatory approval and is anticipated to close in mid-2014. RBS Citizens Financial Group Chicago branches will continue to operate under their current name, Charter One, during the transition, and will be re-branded as U.S. Bank branches once the transaction is complete.
