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.
