As the newest bank in the Dallas metropolitan area, MapleMark Bank was formed in late 2017 when Maple Financial Holdings acquired First National Bank of Edgewood, a $23 million bank with a 118-year history. According to a Dallas Business Journal May 2018 article, MapleMark Bank had raised $90 million within six months,
marking one of the largest initial capital raises to help a firm get off the ground in the U.S.
The investments came mostly from wealthy family investment offices in Dallas, elsewhere in Texas and in nearby Oklahoma, the bank said Tuesday.
These so-called “de-novo” formations, where a bank is started from the ground up with capital raised by investors, all but vanished in the wake of the 2008 financial market collapse. New regulations, tougher oversight and a bustling market for acquiring smaller banks since then have made the process more difficult.
In January 2022, MapleMark Chairman and CEO, Anthony B. Davis, announced a merger of equals, which was finalized about a year ago.
We have an exciting announcement to share with you about the future of our company. Maple Financial Holdings, Inc., the parent company of MapleMark Bank and Oakwood Bancshares, Inc., the parent company of Oakwood Bank have entered into a definitive merger agreement to combine in a merger of equals transaction.
This true merger of equals combines two complementary banking platforms –headquartered in Dallas. The combined company will have approximately $2 billion in total assets and will operate with branches in Texas and Tulsa, Oklahoma.
