The good news for Pacific regional banks at the moment seems that even if they're struggling they need not fear mergers and acquisitions. A regional bank symposium was held in New York City last Tuesday and the general consensus among attending companies was that even though many banks continue to struggle, fewer are in a position where mergers and acquisitions would be favorable. Essentially, the entire regional banking community is in recovery mode and even a bargain acquisition could be detrimental to revenue margins.

Moving forward, regional banks could benefit from President Obama's latest passed bill that provides $42 billion dollars in loan incentives and tax cuts for small businesses. The bill specifically includes a $30 billion lending fund aimed at community banks to encourage small business loans. Overall, the recovery continues to be slow for Pacific regional banks but steady growth coupled with government aid could return them to pre-recession levels. 

With the Q3 2010 earnings in full swing, Pacific regional bank Glacier Bancorp Inc. will be releasing its financial results on October 21st. Shareholders and investors can sign up today at to download the full report on Glacier Bancorp Inc.
