Farmers and Merchants Bank
For over 70 years, Farmers & Merchants Bank has been serving the communities of Northeast Mississippi. Home owned and operated since 1941, Farmers & Merchants prospers with a dedicated community of loyal customers and loyal employees. This commitment allowed the bank to rank as one of the "Highest Rated Banks in America" according to a survey by Sheshunoff Information Services Inc. In a world that changes rapidly, Farmers and Merchants Bank remains a stable and secure financial institution whose first priority is the safety of customers’ hard earned money.
Last month, FM Bank held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new location that will open next year. The 2,816 square-foot full-service banking facility will have a three-lane drive thru, a drive-up ATM, and a night deposit box. The branch will be located at the intersection of Farmington Road and County Road 166. "Our banks take pride in the communities where we are located," said President and CEO John Haynes. "Making our communities the best they can be is one of our daily goals as a community bank."
First Bancshares, Inc. announces their planned merger with FMB Banking Corporation in which First Bancshares will acquire 100% of the common stock of FMB. The new combined Company will hold about $3.0 billion in total assets, $2.5 billion in total deposits, $2.0 billion in total loans, and 67 locations. This move will expand The First's presence in the Florida panhandle, southern Georgia, and the Tallahassee market.
