    I smell a buyout coming

    With all the insider buying and institutional holdings I sense a M&A on the horizon in the near future.

    • There is no way that a buyout is coming anytime soon. It will be at least three years.

      Get your facts straight:

      1. UBNK is presently structured as an MHC.

      2. This means that only a minority of shares are presently owned by the public.

      3. The OTS will not permit any buyout of any thrift until three years have passed when a majority of shares are owned by the public.

      4. In other words, UBNK will have to do a second stage offering and then wait an additional three years before someone can buy them out.
