Here’s a conundrum. Many banks aren’t lending because they lack the capital they need to provide credit. Yet at the same time, many private equity firms are sitting on untapped capital because they can’t access credit.

 

Here’s another conundrum. Many banks are very weak, some are even failing -- just this year alone, the FDIC shuttered over 120 of them. Yet at the same time, potential private equity buyers are concerned about constraints imposed by the FDIC and other government agencies.

 

So how will the private equity and the banking communities be able to sort things out in 2010 and beyond?

 

Experts say the most likely scenario is a repeat of the late ‘70s and ‘80s, when investors were acquiring failed banks at opportune pricing. Under that scenario, we’ll be seeing middle-market PE investors picking up failing banks -- pursuing turnarounds, using rollups, and scooping up market share from larger banks that have to de-lever.

 

Separating the potential from the pitfalls is the full-day agenda of this encore MasterClass™ from The Capital Roundtable -- PE Investments in Regional & Community Banks.

 

On February 4 in New York, we’re following up our SRO  conference from last spring with another exceptional event that focuses on what’s new, what’s working, and what’s to come in the evolving landscape of middle-market banking institutions -- whether you’re out to make deals or make your existing portfolio companies more competitive.

 

Yet today is not a moment too soon to make your plans. When you sign up now, you’ll save $300 with our special Early Bird Discount!

 

Information That’s as Relevant as it is Actionable.

 

Opportunities for investors will exist on all rungs of the banking ladder. Accepting TARP funds has not been a panacea for community banks, and while the House Banking Committee is trying to provide additional assistance, the “too big to fail” mantra does not apply here.  Regional banks are also on PE investors’ radars, where there’s less competition and more transparency than at money center banks.

 

With more than 400 institutions on the FDIC’s problem list, PE investors looking to absorb problem banks can expect plenty of choice. But without the specialized knowledge that defines this space, PE investors typically underestimate the risks on the asset and liability sides. There are a whole lot of things to do with banks that differ from traditional PE investments -- not the least of which is overcoming regulatory hurdles.

 

The regulations on bank investors have been onerous for some time, and it’s near suicidal to jump in without a firm grounding on deal structures. While the FDIC is intending to ease requirements for PE investors with its recent “Final Statement of Policy on Qualifications for Failed Bank Acquisitions,” there are still significant restrictions such as a 10% capital threshold, cross-guarantee liability and mandatory holding period. You’ll need a firm grip on these mandatories before you take your first step.

 

In addition, proper analysis and due diligence for regional and community banks requires a very different tack from a Citibank or Bank of America. Personal relationships take on greater importance, and measuring the pulse from non-traditional areas often pays dividends.  So it’s crucial that you learn how others are gathering data and making decisions.

 

Specialized Knowledge & Insight from 20 Banking Experts.

 

To guide you through this potential minefield, we are very pleased to have Dory A. Wiley, President of Commerce Street Capital, serve as our chair for this day-long MasterClass. Dory is a frequent lecturer on bank-related topics at universities and seminars, and testifies as an expert witness on bank and securities valuation.  At Commerce Street, he is involved in all aspects of the firm’s numerous financial institution investments.

 

Along with Dory, 20 well-known regional and community banking professionals will pass along their candid comments and real-world observations -- unfiltered and unvarnished. With four panel presentations from GPs, LPs, investment bankers, lenders, consultants and more, you’ll be certain to hear all sides of every issue and be confident with the conclusions you derive.

 

Attending this timely MasterClass is the fastest, most convenient way to get answers to your banking sector questions like these --

  • How have the eligibility requirements changed for PE bank investors and what strategies can help you achieve qualification?
  • What are the ownership limitations for non-bank holding companies, and how can you live with them?
  • What regulatory proposals may ease future operations for investors in financial institutions?
  • How can the regulatory differences between money center institutions and regional and community banks be leveraged to your advantage?
  • What capital commitments and deal structures are most common today?
  • How can you best conduct due diligence on regional and community banks?
  • When should regional and community banks accept Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP) funding, and when should they take a pass?
  • What tactics are successful PE investors using to limit asset risk?
  • And much, much more.
