Equity Bancshares in Wichita, Kan., will enter the St. Joseph, Mo., market after buying three branches from Valley View Financial in Overland Park, Kan.
The $4.3 billion-asset Equity said in a press release Monday that it will also gain the assets and deposits associated with the branches. The deal is expected to close in December.
Equity did not disclose the price it will pay.
The branches had $71.9 million of deposits in mid-2020, or roughly 3.7% market share, based on data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
“We are pleased with the opportunity to offer Equity Bank products and services to customers in northwest Missouri, and St. Joseph is a great fit within our network,” Brad Elliott, Equity’s chairman and CEO, said in the release.
