Huntington Bancshares Expands In Ohio With Closing Of Acquisition Of Camco Financial, Parent Of Advantage Bank

Huntington Bancshares Incorporated (NASDAQ: HBAN) announced today that it has completed its merger of Camco Financial Corp., parent company of Advantage Bank, based in Cambridge, Ohio.

The simultaneous closing and conversion were completed successfully with the Advantage banking offices having opened March 3, 2014, as Huntington branches.

"We are extremely pleased to welcome the more than 55,000 customers of Advantage Bank to Huntington," said Stephen D. Steinour, chairman, president and CEO of Huntington Bank. "With the addition of nine new branches, former Advantage customers and long-time Huntington customers will enjoy more convenience and accessibility from Cambridge to Cincinnati. We are grateful to our customers for their ongoing commitment to Huntington and we look forward to continue to invest in products and services that will make banking easier for them."

Advantage customers are now able to sign up for Huntington’s Asterisk Free Checking™ an account that has no minimum balance requirement and comes with 24-Hour Grace ® overdraft protection, identity theft protection and platinum debit cards, among other features. Advantage small business owners can also begin working with Huntington’s business bankers, who have helped the bank become the third largest SBA lender in the country as of the most recent fiscal year.

Customers also will have access to Huntington's entire 1500-ATM network throughout the Midwest, with no service charge, including more than 700 traditional and in-store branches.

For more information on Huntington products and services, customers can call 1-800-480-BANK (2265) or visit

Shareholders accounting for approximately 88 percent of Camco shares outstanding elected to receive Huntington common stock in the transaction. Because the merger agreement provides that 80 percent of the outstanding Camco shares will be converted into Huntington common stock (1) shareholders who validly elected the stock consideration will receive a portion of the merger consideration in the form of Huntington stock, with the remainder in cash, (2) shareholders who validly elected the cash consideration will receive all cash in the merger, and (3) all shareholders who failed to make a valid election will receive cash in the merger.
