The merger between two metro Denver banks is official.

Denver-based Centennial Bank and Trust, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Iowa-based Heartland Financial USA, Inc. (Nasdaq: HTLF), has completed its acquisition of longtime Aurora-based Citywide Banks, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Citywide Banks of Colorado. The deal was announced in February.

Based on Heartland’s closing stock price of $47.45 per share as of July 7, 2017, the aggregate merger consideration is valued at approximately $211.2 million. The merger consideration is approximately $216.75 per share of Citywide common stock, with Citywide shareholders receiving $60.16 in cash and 3.30 shares of Heartland common stock for each share of Citywide common stock, subject to certain “hold-back” provisions of the merger agreement between Heartland and Citywide relating to the cash portion of the merger consideration, Heartland announced.
