State Bank completes merger with name change to BankPlus

State Bank is now BankPlus.

Though the banks began their merger nine months ago, the name change has just taken effect.

BancPlus Corporation acquired State Capitol Corp. in September 2019, completing the merger effective April 1. At that point, BancPlus merged its subsidiary BankPlus with the SCC subsidiary State Bank.

State Bank and Trust Company operated as a division of BankPlus until the close of business Friday. Now the companies have merged under the name BankPlus. The Bank has two locations in Brookhaven — one on South Railroad Avenue and the other on Brookway Boulevard.

Based on financial data from 2019, the combined company was projected to have approximately $4.2 billion in assets, deposits of $3.7 billion and gross loans of $3.1 billion at the time of purchase at the time of the merger.

Headquartered in Greenwood, State Bank was founded in 1898 and was in 2019 the 10th largest financial institution headquartered in Mississippi, operating 32 branches in Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama.

Founded in Belzoni in 1909 and headquartered in Ridgeland, BankPlus operated 55 locations in Mississippi in 2019.

State Bank’s acquisition by BancPlus created the sixth largest bank by deposits in Mississippi, and allowed BankPlus to expand into the neighboring markets of Louisiana and Alabama.

The combined banking company now has branches in 53 cities across the three states.
