MADISON, Wis. (7/25/13)--Several mergers or planned mergers of U.S. credit unions are in the works, as the consolidation trend continues.
 
The mergers or intended mergers:
  • Mount Olivet FCU, with $258,000 assets in Columbus, Ohio, has merged into Columbus-based Telhio CU, with $477 million in assets, to give members additional benefits such as direct deposit and online banking (The Columbus Dispatch July  22).
  • Dublin, Ohio-based Healthcare FCU, with $52 million in assets, will merge Aug. 1 with $16.4 million asset MedPro FCU, based in Akron. Healthcare FCU will be the operating credit union (Business First of Columbus Online July 16).
  • Security One FCU, based in Arlington, Texas, with $55 million in assets, has signed an intent to merge into Texas Trust CU, a $748 million asset credit union based in Mansfield, Texas (Mergers & Acquisition Week July 24). The merged institution will have 12 branches. The merger will provide more benefits to Security One members, and  give Texas Trust a presence in Arlington.
  • $140 million asset USU Charter FCU, based in Logan, Utah, announced on July 2 its intent to merge into Goldenwest FCU, Ogden, with $814.5 million assets (Cache Valley Daily.com July 2).
