Merger News

Dear Valued Customer of FNB of Central Alabama:

I am writing to share exciting news about a change in ownership of FNB of Central Alabama (“FNB”).

It was announced today that FNB has agreed to be acquired by BankFirst Financial Services (“BankFirst”), based out of Columbus, Mississippi. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2019, following customary regulatory approvals.

The Board and employees of FNB have been honored to serve you for the last 53 years and now as BankFirst, we plan to continue our commitment of offering extraordinary service and personalized financial solutions to you, our customers. The decision to partner with BankFirst was easy. Their history, culture and commitment to the communities they serve, are very similar to ours at FNB. We have common processes and procedures, along with a shared vision of making banking simple. Additionally, the FNB branch network is a natural fit within the BankFirst footprint.

Outside of the change in ownership, it will be business as usual. Please keep banking as you have been accustomed. Nothing will change with your FNB products and services, and our FNB team of local bankers will continue to be here to serve you, before, during, and after the transition.

Over the next few months, we will keep you informed of our progress. Enclosed you will find a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help you stay up-to-date of this process. If you have questions, please visit with your local banker or call us at 866.318.3238.

As always, thank you for your business. It is a privilege to serve you.

We’ve come together. You’ll always come first.


Heyward Gould

President & CEO
