Belmont, MA based BSB Bancorp, Inc. operates as the holding company for Belmont Savings Bank that provides commercial and retail banking services to small businesses, municipalities, nonprofit organizations, and other customers in the United States. On November 27, 2018, People's United Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: PBCT), the holding company for People's United Bank, N.A., announced an agreement to acquire BSB Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLMT), the holding company for Belmont Savings Bank, a state-chartered savings bank headquartered in Belmont, Massachusetts, in a 100% stock transaction valued at approximately $327 million. Under the terms of the agreement, which has been approved by both companies' boards of directors, BSB Bancorp, Inc. stockholders will receive 2.0 shares of People's United Financial stock for each BSB Bancorp, Inc. share. The transaction is valued at $32.42 per BSB Bancorp, Inc. share, based on the closing price of People's United's common stock on November 26, 2018.
