Our teams are working hard behind the scenes to combine operating systems and planning for a brand transition as Legacy Bank adopts the InBank name at the completion of the conversion process scheduled for the third quarter. We are confident that this transaction will position InBank for significant growth across the Front Range of Colorado with the potential to gain substantial scale, while increasing our market capitalization and improving our earnings power.”
