Synovus intends to leverage its key competitive strengths, including its decentralized customer delivery model, position in high-growth Southeast markets and commitment to being a great place to work, to ensure the delivery of unparalleled customer experiences and to continue its proven track record of exceptional performance as a bank holding company.
Synovus will take advantage of its new position post-spin to focus on growing and developing its highly skilled team of financial services experts, and will use available capital for growing its banking and investment businesses. Synovus believes that its customer-centric, decentralized delivery model is attractive to both retail and commercial customers who want the responsiveness and flexibility of a community bank, combined with the expertise, products and services of a bank that has the capacity to meet a variety of financial services needs.
“Giving our bankers and investment professionals the resources they need while empowering them to make relationship- and market-based decisions that are best for their customers offers us a truly unique edge in our markets,” said Anthony. “Leveraging our competitive differentiators, combined with our track record for excellent financial performance, strong leadership and highly ethical business standards, positions us for long-term success.”
In connection with the spin-off, J.P. Morgan Securities Inc. acted as financial advisor and King & Spalding acted as legal counsel for Synovus.
