KeyCorp (NYSE: KEY) completed its acquisition of U.S.B. Holding Co., Inc. (NYSE:UBH) of Orangeburg, N.Y. The acquisition will add $3.0 billion in assets and 31 branches to Key’s Hudson Valley/Metro NY District. U.S.B. Holding Co., Inc., is the holding company for Union State Bank (USB), one of the leading state-chartered commercial banks serving southern New York state.
In mid-January, following the conversion of USB’s application systems to Key, KeyCorp expects to merge USB into KeyBank National Association ("KeyBank") and begin operating the USB branches as Key branches.
