Integra Bank unloads five Kentucky branches

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Evansville-based Integra Bank Corp. announced on Friday that it has completed the sale of five Kentucky branches in Bowling Green and Franklin to First Security Bank.

Based in Owensboro, Ky., First Security assumed about $115 million of deposit liabilities, as well as $41.8 million of branch loans, $33 million of additional indirect consumer loans and $30.5 million of commercial and commercial real estate loans.

First Security paid a 5-percent net deposit premium for the deposit liabilities it assumed, which totaled about $5.8 million.

In addition, three of the five banking branches were sold at their book values, while First Security assumed the leases for the other two, according to Integra.

“This transaction along with the two similar transactions we completed during the second quarter are key to our strategy to strengthen our capital position as we narrow our geographic operating footprint,” Integra Chairman and CEO Michael J. Alley said in a prepared statement.

Alley, the former CEO of Fifth Third Bancorp's central Indiana operations, became Integra’s CEO in May 2009.

First Security also has agreed to purchase three Indiana branches from Integra in Bedford, Mitchell and Paoli. The acquisition is expected to close in September.

With $2.9 billion in total assets, Integra has 59 bank branches in Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois and Ohio.

Shares of Integra opened trading Friday morning at 71 cents each.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
