Banesco USA Completes Oversubscribed Private Placement of $15 Million in Subordinated Notes as the Florida-Based Community Bank Positions Itself for Growth

CORAL GABLES, Fla., Dec. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Banesco USA (the "Bank") announced today the completion of its private placement of $15.0 million of 5.50% Fixed to Floating Rate Subordinated Notes due 2030 (the "Notes") to qualified institutional buyers. The Notes will initially bear interest at a fixed annual rate of 5.50% for the first five years and will reset quarterly thereafter at the then current three-month SOFR rate plus 524 basis points. The Notes are intended to qualify as Tier 2 capital for regulatory capital purposes for the Bank.

The Bank intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes including the support of capital levels and organic growth.

Signaling a positive view of the Bank, the offering was well received by the investment community, as it was oversubscribed and successfully completed at historically attractive rates, with the participation of a number of very experienced and active institutional investors in subordinated notes.

Piper Sandler & Co. served as sole placement agent for the offering. Holland & Knight served as legal counsel to the Bank and Gunster served as legal counsel to the placement agent.
