It’s not yet a given, though, that one of the aforementioned two will end up acquiring the commercial bank since others, including the Bank of America are considering bidding as well, according to the Wall Street Journal.
If an acceptable offer is made within the deadline, it’s likely that a deal will be announced on Monday. Earlier this week, the FDIC was said to be preparing to place First Republic Bank under receivership.
“FRC” is down over 97% versus its year-to-date high at writing.
