7908 CITBA shares for each of their 10,000 shares, resulting in ownership of 80% of CITBA's outstanding stock.
CITBA would have continued as the surviving entity and would have adopted the name Merchants Bancorp.
CITBA will be the surviving entity after the transaction and will be renamed Merchants Bancorp.
