On March 1, 2014, Huntington completed its acquisition of Camco Financial in a stock and cash transaction valued at $109.5 million. Camco Financial operated 22 banking offices and served communities in Southeast Ohio. The acquisition provides Huntington the opportunity to enhance our presence in several areas within our existing footprint and to expand into several new attractive geographies.


Under the terms of the merger agreement, Camco Financial shareholders received 0.7264 shares of Huntington common stock, on a tax-free basis, or a taxable cash payment of $6.00 for each share of Camco Financial common stock. The aggregate purchase price was $109.5 million, including $17.8 million of cash and $91.7 million of common stock and options to purchase common stock. The value of the 8.7 million shares issued in connection with the merger was determined based on the closing price of Huntington's common stock on February 28, 2014.


Under the agreement, Huntington acquired approximately $559.4 million of loans and $557.4 million of deposits. Assets acquired and liabilities assumed were recorded at fair value in accordance with ASC 805, “Business Combinations”. The fair values for loans were estimated using discounted cash flow analyses using interest rates currently being offered for loans with similar terms (Level 3). This value was reduced by an estimate of probable losses and the credit risk associated with the loans. The fair values of deposits were estimated by discounting cash flows using interest rates currently being offered on deposits with similar maturities (Level 3). As part of the acquisition, Huntington recorded $64.2 million of goodwill, all of which is nondeductible for tax purposes.
