Greensburg, Ind.-based MainSource Financial Group Inc. struck a $56.9 million deal to acquire Louisville, Ky.-based FCB Bancorp Inc. in a cash-and-stock transaction.
FCB stockholders can receive 0.9 MainSource common shares and $7 in cash for each FCB common share they own. Additionally, all outstanding and unexercised options to buy FCB stock will vest in full and be converted automatically into the right to receive an amount of cash equal to the product of the difference (if positive) between $7 plus the product of 0.9 and the average of the daily closing sales prices of a share of MainSource common stock as reported on the Nasdaq for the 10 consecutive trading days ending on the third business day preceding the closing date minus the exercise price of such FCB stock option, multiplied by the number of shares of FCB common stock subject to such FCB stock option. The price tag is based on the Dec. 16 closing price of $32.65 per MainSource common share.
Deal completion will also see FCB Bancorp unit First Capital Bank of Kentucky become a subsidiary of MainSource Financial and subsequently merge into MainSource Bank.
