Feb. 26, 2014 – Commercial Bank announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Bank of America Corporation (NYSE:BAC) to assume the deposits and acquire certain assets of three branches located in Independence, Coffeyville and Caney, Kansas.

We look forward to welcoming new customers and introducing them to our high level of personal service and community focused banking.”

The acquisition, which is subject to approval from banking regulators, shareholders and other customary closing conditions, is expected to be completed sometime this summer.
