BancFirst Corporation Enters Into Agreement To Acquire Pegasus Bank.
On April 23, 2019 BancFirst Corporation entered into an agreement to acquire Pegasus Bank (“Pegasus”), for an aggregate cash purchase price of $122.0 million. Pegasus is a Texas chartered bank with three banking locations in Dallas, Texas. As of December 31, 2018, Pegasus had approximately $639.1 million in total assets, $367.4 million in loans, and $595.3 million in deposits. The acquisition is expected to be completed during August 2019 and is subject to regulatory approval.
