1.   Why are these 9 branches being sold to TBK Bank?

They approached us, expressing interest in acquiring 9 of our branches, which are located in markets adjacent to their existing Colorado branches.

2.   Weren’t these same branches acquired earlier this year by Independent Bank?

Yes, the parent company of Northstar Bank, Carlile Bancshares, Inc., was acquired by Independent Bank Group in April of 2017. TBK Bank approached Independent Bank Group with interest in acquiring the 9 Northstar branches located in Yuma, Otis, Sterling, Akron, Johnstown, Firestone, Milliken, Longmont and Evans. 

3.   Why did TBK Bank choose you?

The folks at TBK Bank like the size and locations of these 9 branches. They were attracted to the skills and expertise of our staff, our dedication to providing exceptional service to the customers and communities we serve, and the opportunity for growth they see in these markets.

The sale was complete at the close of business on October 6, 2017. 

7.   Will any of these branches be closed?  

TBK Bank approached us about these 9 specific branches because they complement their current footprint and product offering in the Front Range and Eastern Colorado. As such, there are no current plans to close any branches.

8.   With whom should I speak if I want more information?

If you have any additional questions, our Branch Presidents or Branch Managers are happy to speak with you. 

9.   Will everyone in the bank have a job in the new organization?

It is currently expected that all of our branch employees will continue in their current roles.

10.   Will your fees change?

Please refer to the transition guide or contact your local branch for more details.

11.   Will my account numbers change? Will I need new checks and debit cards? Will my direct deposits or automatic payments be affected? Will I still be able to access my accounts online?

You should have received information from TBK Bank that provided detailed information on what will and what will not change.

Majority of our customers will keep their account numbers – the only case in which your account number will change is if there is a duplicate with TBK Bank’s existing account numbers. Your routing number will change to a TBK Bank routing number. As such, TBK Bank will reissue new checks and debit cards and you can access your online banking via TBK Bank’s website, www.tbkbank.com

TBK Bank’s goal is to make this transition as seamless as possible for you.

12.   Will my deposits still be insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)?

Yes, your deposits continue to be insured to the maximum allowed by the FDIC. If you have any questions, one of our branch employees can review your accounts with you to make sure your accounts are structured to allow for the maximum coverage.
