    한미파이낸셜, 텍사스 유나이티드 센트럴 뱅콥 인수 계약 체결




    텍사스, 일리노이, 뉴욕, 뉴저지, 버지니아로 영업망 확충하며 2위 한인은행으로 등극

    한미은행의 지주회사인 한미파이낸셜(NASDAQ: HAFC)이 오늘 텍사스에 위치한 유나이티드 센트럴 뱅크의 모회사인 센트럴 뱅콥과 인수합의서(definitive agreement)를 체결했다고 밝혔다. 한미은행은 인수가 마무리되면 51개의 지점과 두 개의 대출사무소를 갖추고 캘리포니아 뿐만 아니라 텍사스, 일리노이, 뉴욕, 뉴저지, 버지니아, 그리고 조지아까지 광범위한 지역의 아시안 커뮤니티에 서비스를 제공하게 된다. 

    센트럴 뱅콥은 지난 2013년 3분기 현재 약 $16억 달러의 자산과 $7억 달러의 대출 및 $14억 달러의 예금, 그리고 여섯개 주(텍사스, 일리노이, 뉴욕, 뉴저지, 버지니아, 조지아)에 걸쳐 총 24개의 지점을 가지고 있다. 

    인수가 완료되면, 한미는 약 $43억 달러의 자산과 $28억 달러의 대출, 그리고 $38억 달러의 예금을 가진 두번째로 큰 한인은행이 되며, 텍사스와 일리노이, 버지니아 지역에서는 한인은행 중 가장 많은 예금 시장점유율을 가지게 된다. 

    인수합병을 통한 주요 혜택은 다음과 같다.

    • 상당한 경비 절감 및 영업 효율성의 개선
    • 주주들에게 높은 수익을 돌려줄 수 있는 자본의 적절한 사용 기회

    한미은행 금종국 행장은 “이번 인수합병을 통해 경쟁력을 크게 강화하고 은행이 의미있는 성장과 수익 확대를 할 수 있다고 믿는다. 특히 이번 합의서를 한미은행이 아메리칸 드림을 이루려 미국에 온 한인 이민자들을 돕기 위해 LA에 최초 한인은행으로 문을 연지 31주년을 맞는 날 체결하게 되어 더욱 기쁘다. 한미은행은 커뮤니티 은행으로서, 인종 및 지역적 고객층 확대를 위해 앞으로도 노력할 것”이라고 전했다. 

    금행장은 또한 “이번 인수는 한미 자본의 적절한 사용을 통해 주당 유형장부가의 희석을 최소화하면서 주주들에게 즉각적인 수익을 낳을 것이다. 고객들에게는 확장된 영업망 및 다양해진 상품, 대출한도 확대 등을 통해 여러 가지 편리한 서비스를 제공할 것이며, 직원들에게는 교육 및 성장의 기회를 위한 투자를 계속할 것”이라고 덧붙였다.

    한미은행, 추신수 선수와 함께 추수감사절 맞이 나눔이벤트



    KYCC 어린이 학교에서 칠면조 및 다양한 선물증정

    한미은행(행장 금종국)이 광고전속모델인 메이저리거 추신수 선수와 함께 한인타운청소년회관 (KYCC • 관장 송종호)의 어린이 학교(Children’s  Center)를 찾아 추수감사절 맞이 음식 및 선물을 나누어 주며 아이들과 정을 나눴다. 
    본 행사는 추수감사절을 맞아 KYCC 어린이 학교에 다니는 어린이들의 가족들이 음식을 가지고 와서 포틀럭으로 나누어 먹는 연례행사로, 한미은행이 참여하기는 이번이 처음이다. 이날 한미은행의 바니 리 수석 전무와 추신수 선수는 학교 스태프들과 함께 칠면조와 햄을 아이들 및 가족들에게 직접 나눠주며 추수감사절 행사를 더욱 푸짐하게 하였다. 

    식사 후, 한미네이버 자원봉사단과 추선수는 아이들에게 추선수 캐릭터가 그려진 일회용 문신을 붙여주고, 풍선을 불어 나누어주고, 아이들과 함께 간이 야구경기를 하는 등 다양한 놀이를 함께 하며 아이들과 즐거운 시간을 보냈다. 이외에도 추선수는 본인이 직접 아이들을 위해 야구공 및 학용품 선물을 준비하여 나눠주었으며, 아이들과 가족들을 위해 사인회를 가져 아이들의 기쁨을 더했다.  한미는 추선수가 준비한 선물에 더불어, 메모지와 돼지저금통을 추가로 증정하였다. 

    행사에는 어린이 학교의 학생 및 가족 약 150여명이 참여하여 성황을 이뤘다.  바니리 수석전무는 “미국의 명절인 추수감사절을 맞이하여 아이들에게 음식도 나누어 주고 즐거운 시간을 함께 보낼 수 있어 매우 기쁘다. 특히 추선수가 세아이의 아빠로서 어린이 학교 아이들과 자연스럽게 어울리며 즐거워한 행사여서더욱 의미있었다”고 참여 소감을 밝히면서 “앞으로도 한미은행은 커뮤니티과 사랑을 나누는 기업으로 계속 성장해 나가겠다”고 전했다.
