DALLAS, Sept. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Texas Capital Bancshares, Inc. (“Texas Capital”) (NASDAQ: TCBI) announced today that it entered into a definitive agreement to sell BankDirect Capital Finance (“BankDirect”), its insurance premium finance subsidiary, to AFCO Credit Corporation (“AFCO”), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Truist Financial Corp.(“Truist”) (NYSE: TFC).

The sale of BankDirect includes its business operations and loan portfolio of approximately $3.1 billion as of June 30, 2022. AFCO is purchasing BankDirect from Texas Capital in an all-cash transaction for a purchase price of approximately $3.4 billion, representing an 8.5% asset premium compared to the value of the purchased loan portfolio as of June 30, 2022. The purchase price is subject to customary adjustments, including for the net asset value of the loan portfolio, as set forth in the Purchase Agreement. This transaction represents the divestiture of the entire business unit including the equity interests of BankDirect and the associated loan balances held by Texas Capital Bank and no parent funding, deposits or capital will be transferred.

“The sale of BankDirect represents an important milestone for Texas Capital, further enabling us to re-focus our capital and expense base consistent with our strategy of creating the flagship full-service financial services firm in Texas,” said Rob C. Holmes, Chief Executive Officer and President of Texas Capital. “The sale follows a deliberate process designed to maximize shareholder value, strengthen our balance sheet, simplify our business model and free up incremental resources to be redeployed to our core businesses. BankDirect operates a nationwide business and generates desirable, granular commercial loans with superior credit quality. I want to thank the team at BankDirect for their long-term partnership and solid commitment to building an outstanding franchise resulting in the success of this transaction.”

The transaction is expected to increase Texas Capital’s capital levels. Relative to June 30, 2022, Common Equity Tier 1 ratio expected to increase 199 basis points and Tangible Book Value per Share accretion is estimated to be 6.5%. Additionally, the divestiture will improve Texas Capital’s liquidity position as the Loan to Deposit ratio is expected to decline and the Liquidity Assets to Assets ratio is expected to rise, before giving effect for future redeployment actions. Additionally, given the expected growth in the core business strategy, Texas Capital is reaffirming forward guidance of delivering year-over-year quarterly operating leverage by year-end.

The sale is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2022, subject to various customary closing conditions.
