M&F branches to close as Renasant wraps up merger

bank-graphic_rgbTUPELO — The last six of nine planned branch closures will be completed by Monday as Renasant Bank’s merger with M&F Bank is finalized.

Tomorrow, three former M&F Bank locations in Tupelo will close for good.

Three remaining branches in Kosciusko, Southaven and Birmingham, Ala., will close on Monday. All are former M&F Bank locations except Birmingham.

Renasant had earlier closed another branch in Tupelo as well as M&F’s branches in Starkville and Grenada.

John Oxford, vice president of external affairs for Renasant, tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that M&F will be fully consolidated with Renasant, including systems, products and services by Monday’s conversion deadline.

Renasant in February announced its merger of M&F in a deal valued at more than $140 million. Shareholders for the companies approved the deal in June. The combined bank is now the state’s fourth-largest, with $5.8 billion in assets, $3.8 billion in loans and $4.9 billion in deposits.

With the merger, 270 former M&F employees joined Renasant.
