Adam Maier Featured in Bank Director Video on Community Bank M&A
Adam discusses the challenges community banks often face when engaging in mergers and acquisitions.
Partner Adam Maier was recently featured in a Bank Director video where he spoke on the challenges community banks often face when engaging in mergers and acquisitions, and optimal strategies to overcome those challenges. Adam also discussed how community banks can better compete for deals on the buy-side, provided advice for prospective sellers, and touched on predictions for community bank M&A going into 2020.
“My advice for community bankers in 2020 is to have a strong plan for management of the target institution,” Adam said. “They are going to have a great deal of input on who the best fit is when it comes to an acquirer, and having a plan for management that builds on what they have grown at the institution goes a long way.”
As co-chair of the firm’s Banking & Financial Services division, Adam focuses his deep knowledge on the business interests and growth strategies of financial institutions and their owners. He advises financial institutions in a broad range of strategic transactions, including buying and selling banks and branches, de novo charters, forming holding companies, raising capital and reorganizations.
