Evansville-based Old National Bancorp said yesterday that it has priced its public offering of 18 million shares of company stock at $10 per share.

IBJ reported Monday that Old National Bancorp, the holding company for Old National Bank, is selling some of its stock to fund potential acquisitions of troubled banks.

Old National estimates the offering will net $171 million “to support ongoing and future anticipated growth, which may include opportunistic acquisitions of other financial institutions, possibly including … failed or distressed financial institutions in FDIC-sponsored or -assisted transactions,” the bank said in a written release.

The company has $8 billion in assets and more than 180 branches in Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois, including 74 in the Indianapolis area.

In March, Old National purchased 65 Charter One branches for $15.9 million from Providence, R.I.-based Citizens Financial Group.

Old National President and CEO Bob Jones told IBJ earlier this year that his goal is to make Old National “Indiana’s bank.” He is targeting northern Indiana, Indianapolis and areas extending down Interstate 65 to Louisville for acquisitions.

Analyst Sandra Osborne, of New York-based Keefe Bruyette & Woods, recently listed Old National among two dozen U.S. banks well-positioned to scoop up institutions seized by the government.

New York-based Sandler O’Neill & Partners LP is underwriting the offering. New York-based Keefe Bruyette & Woods Inc. and Atlanta-based SunTrust Robinson Humphrey Inc. are assisting.

Old National intends to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 15 percent of the shares offered to cover possible overallotments.

Old National shares were trading at $10.88 this morning, up 2.1 percent.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
