First State Bank parent selling to Arkansas holding company

Community First Bancshares, the parent company of First State Bank, said Tuesday afternoon it will sell to an Arkansas holding company in a $243 million deal that will create a company with $6.8 billion in assets and operations from Kansas to Knoxville. First State runs eight Middle Tennessee branches — although only one (on West End Avenue) is located in the heart of Nashville — that have been among the company's main growth drivers.

The acquisition by Simmons First National Corp. (Ticker: SFNC) is expected to close late this year, but Simmons Chairman and CEO George Makris says his team doesn't expect to be changing signs anytime soon.
