Old National Bank To Acquire Branches In Northern Indiana And Southwestern Michigan

"This acquisition allows us to accelerate our growth market expansion strategy and strengthens our commitment to our current clients in the Michiana area by providing an enhanced network of banking centers and continued unparalleled client care," commented Old National Bancorp's President and CEO Bob Jones. "It also allows us to fulfill our previously stated desire to expand our franchise into Southwest Michigan communities."

"We look forward to welcoming these clients to Old National and providing them with the same professional and convenient service they are accustomed to receiving," Jones added. "As Old National clients, they will experience a 178-year legacy built upon the principles of personal service and stable, secure, community-focused banking designed to help them achieve their financial goals."

Both banks will be working closely together to ensure a seamless transition for the clients' accounts and associates transferring to Old National. Clients of the banking centers included in this transaction will not experience any changes to their accounts or banking routines at this time.

Old National's legal advisor was Krieg DeVault LLP.
