Welcome to the ViewPoint Bank Media Room, your source for information, resources and the latest news about our company.
At ViewPoint Bank, it's about seeing things differently. We know how people feel about large, out-of-state banks. We started here in North Texas. And after helping people with their financial needs since 1952, we've seen it all. And we know it can be better.
That's why we're doing things differently. Like making banking feel more like a partnership than an account. Or offering all the personal and dynamic business banking products and services you would expect from a larger bank--except with the personal attention you deserve.
LegacyTexas Merger Update
We’re pleased to report that ViewPoint Bank's parent company, ViewPoint Financial Group, Inc. has received all regulatory approvals required to complete its merger with LegacyTexas Group, Inc. We expect the merger to legally close January 1, 2015, after satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including applicable waiting periods.
Upon legal close, ViewPoint Financial Group will adopt the name LegacyTexas Financial Group, Inc. and begin trading under the ticker symbol LTXB.
While we will legally be one company after the close, ViewPoint Bank and LegacyTexas Bank will continue to operate separately until the conversion of banking systems and accounts, scheduled for mid-February. After the conversion, we’ll open our doors as the “new” LegacyTexas, and customers will be able to bank at all locations.
Our partnership will result in one of the largest and strongest community banks based in Texas, with combined assets of nearly $6 billion and approximately 50 branches serving the Metroplex and surrounding counties.
