Mississippi-based BancorpSouth Bank, which has 310 full-service branches in Alabama and seven other states, recently completed its previously announced merger with Texas First Bancshares Inc., the parent company of Texas First State Bank.
The deal closed Jan. 1.
“Both of our banks share similar philosophies and a strong commitment to our customers and communities,” says BancorpSouth Chairman and CEO Dan Rollins. “We’re excited to welcome Texas First’s customers and teammates to BancorpSouth and expand our geographic footprint.”
Customers should continue using their current branches, checks, debit and ATM cards, online banking and other banking services. Detailed communications will be provided to all Texas First customers prior to the system conversion.
BancorpSouth Bank is headquartered in Tupelo, Mississippi, with approximately $21 billion in assets.
