To our clients and friends:

On January 29, the OCC proposed a rule to amend its procedures for evaluating bank mergers and to incorporate a policy statement summarizing the principles the agency will use when it reviews proposed bank mergers going forward. Out Client Alert describes the most relevant procedural changes and significant aspects of the new policy statement, and includes key takeaways that will be important for banks considering future merger and acquisition activity. Our Alert regarding the OCC’s proposed changes to its bank merger review process is available here.
