Fifth Third Bancorp Pays $4.7B for MB Financial's Chicago Muscle
from Reuters via U.S. News & World Report
U.S. regional bank Fifth Third Bancorp has agreed to buy smaller rival MB Financial Inc in a stock-and-cash deal valued at about $4.7 billion, as it looks to expand in Chicago and broaden its middle market customer base. A windfall from last year's Republican tax overhaul has encouraged more investment among mid-sized U.S. lenders and banks are also hopeful that legislative moves to roll back some rules on capital requirements will free up more cash.
