Christopher Olsen, Managing Partner of Olsen Palmer LLC, has been invited to speak at the Tennessee Bankers Association (TBA) 129th Annual Meeting to be held from June 16th to 18th at the Ritz Carlton Orlando in Grand Lakes, Orlando, FL. This will be the 4th consecutive year Mr. Olsen will serve as a speaker at TBA’s Annual Meeting.

In his presentation, “The State of Bank M&A: Market Update, Valuation Trends, and Deal Drivers,” Mr. Olsen will provide an executive summary-style update on the current state of the bank M&A landscape including: transaction volume; deal pricing; geographic implications; and a profile of the ‘typical’ seller and buyer. In so doing, key deal drivers will be examined including operating scale, deposit funding, and public stock valuations. Amidst an active bank M&A environment, this session will provide an update useful to all bankers, whether prospective sellers, would-be buyers, or none of the above.

Olsen Palmer is a proud sponsor of the the 129th Tennessee Bankers Association Annual Meeting.

CHRISTOPHER OLSEN TO SPEAK AT VBA/VACB BANK DIRECTORS' SYMPOSIUM

Christopher Olsen will speak at The Bank Directors' Symposium, sponsored by the Virginia Bankers Association and the Virginia Association of Community Banks (VACB). The two-day event will be held at The Inn at Virginia Tech (Southwest) on April 10th and The Westin Richmond (Central) on April 11th, 2019.

The Bank Directors’ Symposium provides bank board members with current data, thought-provoking industry trends and networking opportunities with other directors and regulators. The program is designed to benefit both new directors and seasoned veterans on the Board.

Mr. Olsen will deliver a presentation titled, Creating Value: Identifying the Key Variables that Truly Drive the Value of your Bank . Without question, maximizing long-term shareholder value is - and should be - a central tenet of every bank’s strategic planning, whether through long-term organic initiatives, through M&A, or through some combination of both. That said, less attention is paid to how ‘value’ is actually defined and measured and, by extension, to what key variables have the most profound effect on driving a bank’s value. This session will de-construct a bank’s value drivers, highlight certain characteristics shared by highly-valued banks, and, ultimately, reveal the key variables that are most closely correlated with the value of a bank.

Olsen Palmer LLC is pleased to announce that Managing Partner, Christopher Olsen, will be a featured speaker at Bank Director’s Acquire or Be Acquired Conference on January 27, 2019.

Done right, M&A can unlock substantial value and mitigate significant risks for both buyers and sellers. Mr. Olsen’s presentation, entitled Negotiating the Deal: Best Practices for Maximizing Value and Minimizing Risk in Bank M&A, reveals tactical recommendations and practical advice for negotiating and structuring the best deal for your bank and its shareholders.

The Acquire or Be Acquired Conference is a premier annual event for Bank CEOs and Board members, bringing together key thought leaders from across the country to explore and discuss bank merger & acquisition strategies and related growth opportunities.
