Farmers & Merchants raising Bank of Rio Vista stake to majority ownership

In California, Farmers & Merchants Bancorp has applied to acquire up to 600 more of Rio Vista-based Bank of Rio Vista's common shares.

The Lodi-based buyer on July 20 had completed the purchase of a 34.55% stake from Jeanne McCormack and Albert Medvitz, bringing its total ownership to 39.45%. The acquisition of another 15% will raise its holdings to 54.45%.

A majority stake in Bank of Rio Vista means Farmers & Merchants will enter Solano County with one branch, where it will rank ninth with a 2.73% share of approximately $4.50 billion in total market deposits. It will expand in Sacramento County by one branch, to be ranked No. 11 with a 1.21% share of approximately $32.45 billion in total market deposits. It will also grow in San Joaquin County, where it will rank fourth with a 13.97% share of approximately $10.01 billion in total market deposits.

As of June 30, Bank of Rio Vista had $221.8 million in assets; Farmers & Merchants' subsidiary, Farmers & Merchants Bank of Central California, had $3.01 billion.
