M&T Bank (NYSE:MTB) Expands Business Presence with $3.7 Billion Takeover of Hudson City Bancorp (HCBK) – MTB, WTFC, FNFG, WFC

M&T Bank Corporation’s (NYSE:MTB) $3.7 billion takeover of Hudson City Bancorp, Inc (NASDAQ:HCBK), the biggest bank agreement reported current year, solidifies the Buffalo, New York-based lender’s status as a hunter rather than the hunted.

Bloomberg compiled data confirms that the chief executive officer of M&T Bank Robert Wilmers has added around $40 billion to both its loan and deposit books since 2008 through around four acquisitions. M&T possibly will rank 14th by assets and 11th by deposits among United States commercial banks with purchase of Hudson City.

Wilmers has transformed M&T from a takeover objective in the years following the financial crisis into an acquirer.

RBC Capital Markets analyst Gerard Cassidy stated that M&T chased struggling lenders and didnot sacrifice its balance sheet for earnings growth after on- and-off merger discussion with Banco Santander SA broke down in 2010.
