The overall credit mark is typically the number one deal point in M&A – understanding the nuances of what moves the needle in a fair value assessment of the loan portfolio is critical to negotiating a fair deal.
During this session, we will discuss:
1) How should a bank determine the credit mark of a target, particularly given low historical charge-offs?
2) What are ways that the diligence process over the loan book/credit mark can add value post-acquisition?
3) What does a potential seller need to do to look at its own credit mark the same way an acquirer would? What data is critical to this analysis?
4) How do the concepts of CECL apply – both today and upon adoption?
