Many community banks are considering raising additional capital for a number of reasons, including repurchasing shares from shareholders, supporting balance sheet growth, engaging in acquisitions, or pursuing other strategic initiatives. Regardless of the motivation, the rules and regulations applicable to raising capital are complex. This webinar will simplify these rules and provide a straightforward explanation of the various debt/equity capital raising options available to community banks. It will cover raising capital by leveraging the bank holding company, engaging in “private placements” of common stock, and registered offerings, as well as the pros and cons of each. This is a must-attend session for community banks who want to understand the options available for raising additional capital.
