Independent Bank, Blue Hills sign merger pact for Rockland to acquire BHB

Independent Bank Corp. (INDB), parent of Rockland Trust Company, and Blue Hills Bancorp (BHBK) have signed a definitive merger agreement for Independent to acquire Blue Hills Bancorp and Rockland Trust to acquire Blue Hills Bank. The merger agreement provides that each Blue Hills Bancorp stockholder will receive 0.2308 of a share of Independent common stock and $5.25 in cash for each share of Blue Hills Bancorp common stock. The transaction is intended to qualify as a tax-free reorganization for federal income tax purposes and to provide a tax-free exchange for Blue Hills Bancorp stockholders for the Independent common stock portion of the consideration they receive. The agreement provides that, effective as of and contingent upon the merger, Independent will add three Blue Hills Bancorp directors to its board of directors. The boards of directors of each company have unanimously approved the transaction. The transaction is subject to certain conditions, including the receipt of required regulatory approvals, approval by the stockholders of both Blue Hills Bancorp and Independent, and other standard conditions. Blue Hills Bancorp's directors and officers who currently own, in the aggregate, about 4.4% of Blue Hills Bancorp's outstanding shares have signed voting agreements pursuant to which they have agreed to vote their shares in favor of the merger.
