Not sure why mention PNC. They are already saturated in National City footprint in Treasure Coast after Harbor and Fidelity Merger. There would be WAY too much overlap to make that attractive. PNC is still unclear thy even want to be in Florida. They made that deal for midwest and Pennsylvania locations and to help FDIC bail them out.
True. You are right, buying SBCF would not be of much interest to PNC now. I hope someone like BBT would be suitor. They do have some presence in Florida and have expressed some interest I think in more presence. BBT is a great bank.
