Atlantic Union Bank to acquire American National Bank & Trust Company

To our customers –

I want to thank you for the opportunity to serve as your bank and make sure you saw our latest exciting news.

Our parent company, Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation, has entered into a merger agreement to acquire American National Bank & Trust Company (“American National”). Headquartered in Danville, Virginia, American National operates in Southwestern and Southside Virginia, as well as North Carolina.  Once merged, the combined company will have $23.7 billion in total assets, $19.1 billion in total deposits and $17.3 billion in gross loans, based on financial data as of June 30, 2023. This means that we will be better able to offer you the products, technology and convenience of bigger banks, but still with a local bank customer experience. 

While we will be expanding our network as the largest regional bank headquartered in Virginia, some things will never change – like our commitment to our customers, the communities we serve and our goal of delivering a best-in-class customer experience.

We expect to close the transaction in the first quarter of 2024, subject to customary closing conditions, including receipt of regulatory approvals. For now, it is business as usual, and you should continue to do your banking as you normally would at any Atlantic Union Bank branch. It is important to note that, following the merger, the combined company will continue to use our operating systems, so there should be little to no impact to our existing customers’ accounts. We will let you know when you can begin taking advantage of our expanded footprint.

As various milestones are achieved, we’ll keep you informed on our website. If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to call our Customer Care Center at 800.990.4828 or visit any of our branches.

We look forward to serving your financial needs today and tomorrow. Thank you for banking with Atlantic Union Bank.
