About

In late 2021, a prominent United States bank revealed its intent to acquire a key regional banking institution, marking a strategic consolidation of two major entities with a shared vision of leadership on the West Coast, particularly in California, Oregon, and Washington.  

The acquisition, completed by the close of 2022, not only elevated the purchasing bank’s assets by over $80 billion but also integrated over 1 million consumer bank accounts and nearly 200,000 small business customers into its portfolio.
