Chemical Financial Corporation and TCF Financial Corporation Announce Merger of Equals to Create a Premier Midwest Bank Headquartered in Detroit

 

·Creates a premier bank in the Midwest with $45 billion in assets
·Enhances competitive position by delivering the scale, profitability and predictable performance required to compete and win in an evolving market
·Merger combines two complementary platforms – strengthening each company’s standalone growth profile
·EPS accretion, relative to consensus estimates, of 17% to Chemical shareholders and 31% to TCF shareholders; 2.7-year tangible book value per share earn back
·Combined company retains shared values including deep community ties, customer-centric focus and commitment to performance
·Significant operation centers in Minneapolis, Midland and Chicago

 

DETROIT, MI & WAYZATA, MN – January 28, 2019 – Chemical Financial Corporation (“Chemical”) (NASDAQ: CHFC) and TCF Financial Corporation (“TCF”) (NYSE: TCF) today announced the signing of a definitive agreement under which the companies will combine in an all-stock merger of equals transaction. Under the terms of the agreement, which was unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both companies, TCF will merge into Chemical, and the combined holding company and bank will operate under the TCF name and brand following the closing of the transaction.

 

The merger combines two complementary banking platforms to create a premier Midwest bank that will be uniquely positioned to capitalize on market opportunities and broaden the channels and customers it serves through increased scale and expanded product offerings. The combined company will have approximately $45 billion in assets, $34 billion in total deposits and more than 500 branches across nine states, including four of the top 10 Midwest markets. It will leverage the strengths of Chemical’s community banking and wealth management capabilities with TCF’s large deposit franchise and expertise in wholesale lending on a national basis.

 

“With a shared strategic vision and increased scale and capabilities, our two complementary banking platforms will be positioned to better serve our customers and communities,” said Chemical’s Chairman Gary Torgow. “The combination of TCF and Chemical creates the largest midcap bank in the Midwest, poised to deliver double-digit EPS accretion for each set of shareholders, significant cost synergies, top-tier return metrics, a more diversified balance sheet and a lower risk profile. We also share a deep commitment to supporting and giving back to the communities we serve.” 

 

TCF Chairman, CEO and President Craig Dahl said, “We are confident that this merger will enhance our ability to deliver stronger and more sustainable growth and greater value creation than either company could achieve alone. The new TCF will have attractive positions in both its product suite and market footprint as well as a more diversified loan portfolio and increased lending capabilities across asset classes, geographies and industry verticals. Through improved profitability and earnings predictability, we will be able to reinvest in the business to drive multiple growth engines, enhance our ability to compete in the next generation of banking and sustain consistent return on capital for shareholders. We believe the combined company will also create new opportunities for our employees and enable us to attract and retain top talent.”

 

 

 

 

Strategic Benefits of the Merger

 

Enhanced scale and capabilities: The combined organization will be strategically positioned to capitalize on market opportunities and better serve its customers throughout several of the largest, most attractive markets in the Midwest. Together, the companies will have the scale to better invest, compete and outperform by leveraging leading market positions and complementary products. Limited overlap of markets and product suites will benefit customers through a consistent go-to-market approach and minimal disruption.

 

Accelerates achievement of each company’s strategic priorities: Complementary operations with limited overlap will broaden the opportunities to drive sustainable growth and increase market share. TCF’s strength in national lending verticals complements Chemical’s core in-market commercial lending and wealth management offerings. The two banks’ shared strengths in infrastructure, digital platforms, and mortgage banking will enhance the combined organization’s position while improving efficiency.

 

More balanced deposit mix and loan portfolio: The combination creates a more diversified deposit mix between retail and commercial business lines and a more balanced loan portfolio across geographies, asset classes and commercial industries. On a combined basis, the company expects to have increased capacity for loan growth while maintaining its current risk thresholds.

 

Complementary values and community focus: Both organizations share a legacy of developing deep community ties, along with core values centered on customer service, accountability, and adaptability to market changes. The combined organization will have a stronger, deeper leadership team with complementary expertise to drive enhanced operational performance, strategic growth, and risk management. In addition, the combined bank will continue to provide philanthropic, civic, and economic development support to the communities in which it operates.

 

Financial Benefits of the Merger

 

The transaction is projected to deliver 17% EPS accretion to Chemical and 31% EPS accretion to TCF by 2020, with a tangible book value earn-back period of 2.7 years. Pro forma merged company financial metrics are based on each company’s stand-alone consensus median analyst estimates, estimated combined company cost synergies, anticipated purchase accounting adjustments, and the expected merger closing time-frame. On a pro forma basis, the business is expected to deliver top-tier operating and return metrics with cost savings on a fully-phased in basis, including:

 

·Return on Average Tangible Common Equity of approximately 19%
·Return on Average Assets of approximately 1.6%, and
·Efficiency ratio of approximately 53%.

 

 

 

 

In addition, the transaction is expected to generate approximately $180 million in annual run-rate cost synergies by 2020, with minimal reductions in branches.

 

Transaction Details

 

Under the terms of the agreement, TCF shareholders will receive 0.5081 shares of Chemical common stock for each share of TCF common stock based on a fixed exchange ratio, equivalent to $21.58 per TCF share based on the closing price as of January 25, 2019. Each outstanding share of 5.70% Series C Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock of TCF will be converted into the right to receive one share of a newly created series of preferred stock of Chemical. Upon completion of the deal, TCF and Chemical shareholders will own 54% and 46% of the combined company, respectively, on a fully diluted basis.
