Fed, FDIC approve merger of BB&T, SunTrust banks

BB&T Corp. and SunTrust Banks Inc. received the go-ahead for their $28 billion merger Tuesday from the Federal Reserve's board of governors and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The merger of regional banks, which is expected to close on Dec. 6, will create the nation's sixth-largest commercial bank, serving about 10 million U.S. customers. The combined bank will be called Truist Financial Corp. "We are pleased to have received regulatory approval to merge two strong companies with complementary business models and a high level of cultural alignment," BB&T CEO Kelly King said in a statement. "We'll be even better together for our clients, teammates, communities and shareholders." But the Fed also slapped SunTrust with an enforcement action for unfair and deceptive practices regarding customer fees between 2013 and 2017, which BB&T said the combined bank will comply with.
