Deal Summary
Home Bancshares and minority-controlled affiliate TCBancorp have agreed to acquire Community Financial Group. The deal is part of a push by Home Bancshares to raise its profile as a public company, Home Bancshares Chairman John Allison told the Arkansas Business journal. The preferred stock to be issued by Home Bancshares in consideration for Community is automatically convertible into common stock after 30 months, the paper reported, and will therefore push Home Bancshares above 500 shareholders and subject it to full reporting requirements with the SEC.
