National reported assets of $346 million, gross loans of $204 m illion and deposits of $283 million.

National is an excellent complement to our recent acquisition of Community Bank of South Florida,” said Ernie Pinner, Executive Chairman of CenterState Banks, Inc. “The combination of the two acquisitions helps us to further penetrate the attractive South Miami-Dade market.”

Upon completion of the acquisition, the combined company will have approximately $4.7 billion in assets, $3.1 billion in loans and $3.9 billion in deposits, inclusive of the pending acquisition of Community Bank of South Florida, Inc. This transaction will further solidify CenterState’s position as one of the largest Florida-based community banks and is expected to result in high single-digit EPS accretion when fully phased in.

The transaction is expected to close late in the first quarter of 2016 and is subject to customary conditions, including both regulatory approvals and HBC shareholder approval. Subject to the terms of the merger agreement, HBC shareholders will receive $1.25 in cash for each share of HBC’s common stock, which equates to an aggregate deal value of $19.1 million.

“We are excited to have this opportunity to partner with CenterState, a like-minded Florida headquartered community bank. The combination provides valuable additional products and services for our customers as well as access to an expanded branch network,” said...
