Bangor Savings to merge with New Hampshire bank in $45M deal

Bangor Savings Bank plans to merge with New Hampshire’s Granite Bank in a $45 million deal that would make the combined bank a contender for the title of the largest based in Maine.

The deal is expected to close in the second quarter of next year, pending approval by regulators and shareholders.

This is the second foray into the Granite State by the Bangor-based mutual bank, which earlier this year opened a limited service branch in Portsmouth offering mortgage and other lending along with payroll services. A mutual bank is owned by its members rather than stockholders.

Granite Bank’s parent, First Colebrook Bancorp Inc., is a public company based in Colebrook, New Hampshire. Its shareholders still must vote to approve the deal.

The Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and state banking departments of New Hampshire and Maine also will need to approve the deal, according to Scott Cooper, president and CEO of Granite Bank.
