BancorpSouth Postpones Merger Due to Federal Inquiries
On July 21, 2014, BancorpSouth issued a press release announcing, among other things, the company's second quarter financial results. In this announcement, BancorpSouth revealed that during routine supervisory activities, federal regulators identified weaknesses in the company's procedures, systems, and processes in relation to their Bank Secrecy Act and anti-money laundering programs. In addition, the company announced that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is in the process of reviewing the BancorpSouth's fair lending practices. Due to these investigations, BancorpSouth extended its timeline regarding the acquisition of Ouachita Bancshares Corp. and Central Community Corporation to June 30, 2015 in order to obtain the required regulatory approvals and satisfy required closing conditions.
In light of this news, Robbins Arroyo LLP is investigating whether BancorpSouth's board of directors breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders by failing to implement adequate internal controls to ensure that BancorpSouth complied with federal policies and procedures regarding the Bank Secrecy Act, anti- money laundering efforts, and fair lending practices.
