CCF Bank, a subsidiary of Citizens Community Bancorp, Inc., announced that it has entered into a purchase and assumption agreement to sell its Rochester Hills, Michigan branch and related liabilities to Lake Michigan Credit Union (LMCU). The purchase and assumption agreement includes approximately $35 million in deposits and approximately $300,000 in fixed assets. LMCU has agreed to pay a 7% deposit premium, or approximately $2.45 million. All loans associated with this branch will remain with CCF Bank.
“The sale of our Michigan location will realign our branch network to northwest Wisconsin and southern Minnesota and reflects a good value to shareholders from the branch sale. Our employees and customers will benefit from LMCU’s strong reputation as an outstanding place to work and bank. We are pleased with the outcome for all of our constituencies,” said Steve Bianchi, President of CCF Bank and Citizens Community Bancorp, Inc.
The purchase of the branch is subject to regulatory approval and satisfaction of customary closing conditions and is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2019. The branch will continue operating as CCF Bank until the transaction is completed.
