Capital Funding Bancorp, Inc. and AmericasBank Corp. (AMAB.PK), the parent company of AmericasBank, a Maryland-chartered commercial bank with three branches, announced last week that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, AmericasBank Corp. will be acquired by Capital Funding Bancorp, Inc. in a cash transaction to AmericasBank Corp. shareholders.
