McKINNEY, Texas, Aug. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Independent Bank Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:IBTX), the holding company for Independent Bank, today announced that Independent Bank Group has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Live Oak Financial Corp. and its subsidiary, Live Oak State Bank, Dallas, Texas, a Texas state chartered bank with total assets of $122.9 million, total deposits of $103.9 million, and total equity capital of $13.9 million at June 30, 2013. Live Oak State Bank is a full service commercial bank with one office located in the Swiss Avenue/Lakewood area east of downtown Dallas.

The acquisition of Live Oak State Bank adds to our presence in the Dallas market.

Live Oak customers can expect to continue to receive the same high touch personal service they are accustomed to with the added advantage of the Independent Bank resources."
