Century Bancorp and Eastern Bankshares announced Thursday that they have entered into an all-cash agreement for the $642.1 million proposed transaction.

  • It was only six months before this in-market transaction that Eastern’s initial public offering achieved a $1.7 billion of valuation.
  • As of December 31, 2020, Century’s tangible book value, when viewed in reference to the current purchase price of $642 million, represents 175 times the book value.
  • Based on Eastern’s estimates, the transaction should result in approximately 55% increase in earnings and have an IRR of around 17%.
  • Using cash on hand on its balance sheet, Eastern will fund the purchase price.
  • Eastern also announced an increase of 33% to its quarterly dividend to $0.08 per share in line with its capital management initiatives.
