BancorpSouth, Inc. and BancorpSouth Bank complete internal reorganization

BancorpSouth, Inc. and BancorpSouth Bank completed a rare internal corporate reorganization / inversion which was only the second time in history that a publicly-traded bank listed on a national stock exchange had consummated such a transaction. To execute the reorganization, BancorpSouth, Inc. and BancorpSouth Bank entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization whereby BancorpSouth, Inc., a bank holding company, merged with and into its wholly-owned bank subsidiary, BancorpSouth Bank, with BancorpSouth Bank continuing as the surviving entity following the reorganization.

Waller served as counsel to BancorpSouth, Inc. and BancorpSouth Bank in connection with the internal corporate reorganization / inversion, providing capital markets, securities, corporate governance, employee benefits and ERISA, tax and bank regulatory compliance advice.
