ANCHORAGE, Alaska and RENTON, Wash., Jan. 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Federal Credit Union (“Global”) and First Financial Northwest, Inc. (“First Financial Northwest”) (NASDAQ GS: FFNW) announced today they have entered into a definitive agreement in which Global will acquire Renton, Washington-based First Financial Northwest Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of First Financial Northwest. The transaction is structured as a purchase and assumption agreement with Global purchasing substantially all assets and assuming substantially all liabilities of First Financial Northwest Bank for the all-cash consideration of $231.2 million, subject to certain adjustments.

The agreement has been unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both institutions. Following the purchase and assumption transaction, First Financial Northwest and First Financial Northwest Bank intend to wind down and dissolve. Based on First Financial Northwest’s outstanding shares on a fully-diluted basis as of December 31, 2023, and after taking into consideration the anticipated satisfaction of certain obligations of First Financial Northwest and First Financial Northwest Bank excluded from the purchase and assumption transaction, including holding company indebtedness and tax liabilities, First Financial Northwest expects that its shareholders would be entitled to receive approximately $23.18 to $23.75 per share upon liquidation, subject to certain adjustments.


We paid $13.80 in March of 2023.
