Horizon Bancorp merger complete
Horizon Bancorp, the parent of Horizon Bank, N.A., (“Horizon Bank”) on Tuesday announced the completion of the acquisition of LaPorte Bancorp, Inc. (“LaPorte Bancorp”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, The LaPorte Savings Bank, of LaPorte, Indiana, effective July 18th. LaPorte Bancorp was merged into Horizon immediately followed by the merger of The LaPorte Savings Bank into Horizon Bank. As previously announced, the banks will ultimately operate under the name Horizon Bank, although the current offices of The LaPorte Savings Bank will continue to operate under that name until the systems integration process is completed in October of 2016. The companies are finalizing integration plans that include a systems integration and sign change expected to take place the weekend of October 22, 2016. As a result, customer accounts will automatically change to Horizon accounts with no action required on the part of the customer. Customer checks, direct deposits, payments, and account numbers will remain unchanged in order to make this transition as smooth as possible.
