StoneCastle Financial Direct Capital Investment

StoneCastle Financial ("BANX") is the first public investment company specifically established to invest in healthy community banks. StoneCastle Financial allows banks to expand their investor base to include a knowledgeable bank investor and efficiently receive the capital they need to grow. ​​

StoneCastle Financial’s Senior Management team is comprised of long-term investors in community banks and is prepared to invest immediately in well-positioned banks and savings institutions.​
 
Investment types and features include, but are not limited to:
  • Non-control investments from as little as $2 million
  • Preferred stock, debt and, to a lesser extent,  common equity – depending on individual bank need and situation
  • Pricing – each bank negotiates their own cost of capital with StoneCastle Financial​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

 NEW! Issue Subordinated Debt at Historically Low Rates

 
StoneCastle recently closed a $250 million subordinated loan transaction which consisted of 35 banks across 24 states​. They have initiated a second round which is targeted to close in the first quarter of 2016 and are immediately seeking community banks for investment. 

The capital, which can be counted as Tier 2 capital qualifying subordinated loan, will be priced between 6.99% and 7.49%. This presents an ideal opportunity to refinance higher cost SBLF preferred stock around the time of step up in dividend rate. 

Take advantage of this great opportunity! Contact ABA's Helen Sullivan​ at 1-800-BANKERS, ext. 5167 today. ​
