Acquisition by LCNB Corp. of Eaton National Bank and Trust

We served as deal counsel for LCNB Corp., the holding company of LCNB National Bank, through a stock and cash transaction that enabled it to acquire First Capital Bancshares, Inc., Chillicothe, Ohio, and its subsidiary, Citizens National Bank. We counseled the client through all aspects of the transaction, from pre-transaction planning and due diligence to negotiating deal terms to drafting documents, including advising the client on applicable state and federal application and compliance procedures. The transaction, which is valued at approximately $19 million, enables LCNB to expand its market reach, as Citizens National Bank operated six full-service branches in Ross and Fayette Counties, Ohio.
