After the completion of the transaction, expected to occur during the 2nd quarter of 2020, Affiliated Bank will merge with SouthWest Bank to become the premier community bank in Texas. After a transition period, we plan to operate the combined bank under the SouthWest Bank name. We look forward to the endless opportunities that this merger presents for you, our communities and team members. We remain deeply committed to our customers and know that the alignment of values and cultures between our two companies will allow us to serve you in more ways than ever before.
