On June 23, 2021, Bank of Commerce announced that it had signed an agreement to merge with Columbia for approximately $266 million. Pursuant to the merger agreement, Bank of Commerce stockholders will receive 0.40 shares of Columbia common stock for each share of Bank of Commerce common stock owned. The deal is scheduled to close in the fourth quarter of 2021.
