The following transcript of an interview with David R. Brooks, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Independent Bank Group, Inc. (“IBTX”), and C. Keith Cargill, President and Chief Executive Officer of Texas Capital Bancshares, Inc. (“TCBI”), on CNBC’s Mad Money on January 30, 2020 is being filed in connection with the proposed merger of IBTX and TCBI.

Jim Cramer (“JC”): Tonight we have another one for you, the pending merger between Independent Bank Group and Texas Capital Bancshares, which was announced last month. This is an all-stock merger of equals to create a super-regional bank with a big presence in Colorado, huge in Texas. At the time of the announcement, both companies pointed out that there would be substantial cost synergies and that earnings would get a significant boost. It’s right here in the deck, very clear. However, since popping on the news, both stocks have been hammered, down about 15% each. Could this be the buying opportunity we’re looking for? Let’s take a closer look with C. Keith Cargill, who is the President and CEO of Texas Capital, and David R. Brooks, the Chairman, President and CEO of Independent Bank Group to get a better read on this deal. Mr. Cargill, Mr. Brooks, welcome to Mad Money. People say that there is no, nothing cheap in this market, that it’s moved so much and that there isn’t anything left. I have to tell you gentlemen, this is one of the cheapest stocks I have ever seen. How do we get the value out of it?

Keith Cargill (“KC”): The combination of these two excellent companies in five of the most powerful economic markets in the country, Texas as well as Colorado, Denver. And the execution, the exceptional execution of that combination, should create a powerhouse.

JC: Yea, Keith. What I’m looking at is, this is the best state in the union. It’s the state that benefitted the most from SALT, a state that has really been doing incredibly well with or without oil. Non-performers really down. Are people just not aware?

KC: I think it’s a combination of things, Jim. At the end of the day, the bank stocks generally have traded down since the merger announcement so that’s accentuated this downtick. The others that have announced MOEs this year have experienced similar volatility. So I do believe it’s a show me, and we’re all prepared to make that happen.

JC: Well, David, do you think it’s in part because I’m getting a mortgage right now, I’m getting it at 3%, the ten-year is at 1.5. How do you make any money at these rates?

David Brooks (“DB”): That’s been the hard thing, Jim. That’s why you’ve seen the kind of merger of equal transactions that have been announced this year. I think that building scale, having the ability to compete, get your overhead down, dealing with these longer than we ever thought we would see interest rates and so we feel good about the cost synergies you mentioned, but also being able to grow a great company in the best markets in the country.

JC: You’re also a community bank, so to speak. I know the big companies are always telling me, Jim, forget those guys. I actually think if you’re trying to get a loan, you’re not going get a loan from a big bank. They’re the last ones that want to give you a loan, unless you’re a giant company, you’re guys its relationship banking.

DB: It’s been relationship banking for us and people want to be able tell the story and we think that is not going to go out of style. We have to be nimble and that is the way to make quick decisions, empower people to make good decisions, take care of their customers.

JC: And same time non performers are low and so they knew who they would be lending to.


DB: Absolutely. I think when you embed in a community help, community built healthy communities and invest in local businesses, that’s a win.

JC: Alright, Keith you guys are doing something that is so novel but like I said I got to open the can. I mean I am not Texan but tell me about Bask Bank because you know what it is about time that someone offered something that is different than just the 1.2 that I am getting.

KC: We’re excited about it too Jim. We believe offering our clients an experience as opposed to a very low rate of interest is something that they would like and enjoy. That’s the feedback that we have gotten and we are very excited about this being phase 1 of building out a digital platform where we’ll offer even more product across…

JC: Well tell us more about the American relationship.

KC: American relationship for us goes back more than 20 years when we formed Bank Direct, an online bank that we still have today. But what we didn’t have with Bank Direct is this digital capability to use your mobile device and open account within five minutes or less. We think this is going to be a really great advantage and also lead to these other products.

JC: So how do I extract my own value from American?

KC: Well, it’s going to be able to track for you how many miles you’re accumulating. So if you were to deposit, just to pick a number, $50,000 for a year, you’d get 50,000 miles, dollar per mile.

JC: I think that’s terrific. Now that’s new for you, or did you guys always try to work on this together?

DB: It is new for us. One of the great things about this combination, Jim, is the amount of technology and forward thinking technology that Keith and his team have put together, and I think we’ll be the huge beneficiary of that in the days ahead.

JC: At the same time, I had a service early this weekend and one of the things that was really incredible — this morning. You do need all this work flow technology, customer relations management. It doesn’t really work. Does the software really work or isn’t good old-fashioned banking good enough?

DB: I think you’re going have to have customer experience technology, first rate customer experience technology. Some of the other stuff, I don’t know about but we’re going to do that well.

JC: Well, it is, you just can’t be a banker, I guess, just plain old banker anymore to compete with the big guys that is. And you got to do both, got to do both. That’s Keith Cargill, president and CEO of Texas Capital Bancshares and David Brooks, the Chairman, President and CEO of Independent Bank Group. They are getting together, once again, an incredibly cheap stock, I am tired of hearing there is no value in this market.
