Severn announced today it has reached a definitive merger agreement with Shore Bancshares, Inc. (SHBI). Under the agreement, Severn and Shore will merge through a stock and cash transaction valued at approximately $146 million, or $11.30 per share of stock of Severn, and $1.59 per share in cash.

A closing price for Shore’s common stock of $15.64 as of March 2, 2021 was used to determine the price. Based on anticipated cost savings of approximately 35%, Shore expects the transaction to produce over 30% EPS growth in 2022. All members of the Board of Directors of both companies have approved the agreement.

The definitive agreement provides that holders of Severn common stock will be eligible for 0.6207 shares of Shore common stock and $1.59 in cash for each share of Severn common stock they hold. The value of the valuation will float with the Shore’s stock price, since the exchange ratio will be fixed at 0.6207. For the consideration, the cash portion will be fixed at $1.59 a share.

Over 59.6% of the shares outstanding of the combined company will belong to existing Shore shareholders. Ownership is expected to be around 40.4% for Severn shareholders. The deal is expected to close in the third quarter of 2021, subject to regulatory approvals and shareholder approval from Shore and Severn shareholders.
