Lafayette-based MidSouth Bank announced another acquisition this week with its plans to purchase a branch of Beacon Federal Bank in Tyler, Texas.

According to a release from MidSouth, the agreement outlines a $3.3 million purchase price, as well as the buying of $26 million in loans from Beacon and assuming more than $77 million in deposits.

Pending regulatory and shareholder approval, the bank expects the deal to close by Dec. 31.

“We are excited to acquire a branch in the Tyler market, a market that has a long history associated with the oilfield service industry, a key industry for MidSouth,” says MidSouth CEO and President Rusty Cloutier. “Building on a healthy consumer business developed by Beacon and MidSouth’s history of indirect lending in the Tyler market, coupled with our recent acquisitions in Dallas-Fort Worth, we continue to increase our franchise value as we grow our presence in the attractive Texas market.”
