First Busey Corporation to Acquire Investors’ Security Trust Company

The Barack Ferrazzano Financial Institutions Group acted as legal counsel for First Busey Corporation, the holding company for Busey Bank (“Busey”) (Nasdaq: BUSE), in the signing for a definitive agreement to acquire Investors’ Security Trust Company (“IST”).

This transaction will allow Busey and IST to further meet their clients' growing financial needs. IST's merger into Busey's wealth management division will enhance their existing wealth management presence in the Cape Coral-Fort Myers, FL area and will add a broad range of banking services and delivery systems that complement the service offerings of IST. The transaction is expected to close in mid to late 2019, subject to customary closing conditions and approvals, with combined assets under management of more than $9.25 billion.

Barack Ferrazzano’s team was led by Robert M. Fleetwood, who was assisted by Brent McCauley and Neil R. Patel. Executive compensation and benefits were handled by K.C. Klagos and tax matters were handled by Alice Lin.
