Thanks for the insights, I assume there is no more specific information?

I think you can take it as a foregone conclusion that the Bank of Butterfield will seek a listing on Nasdaq and be bought by a larger bank at some time in the near future.

OffshoreAlert and InsideBermuda, our two newsletters, reported several years ago that the Bank of Bermuda was seeking an exemption from the 60:40 local ownership rule that would allow it to be listed on Nasdaq and, ultimately, be bought. We also reported that Butterfield was likely to follow suit.

Anyone who acted on our story - which did not constitute investment advice but was stating the obvious - and bought Bank of Bermuda stock would have made a killing in the markets, likewise with the Bank of Butterfield.

The Bank of Butterfield is Bermuda's oldest bank, well over 100 years old, and has been reporting healthy profits for some time, while the Bank of Bermuda was going in reverse.

Anyone heard about a very large deal that BNTB is working it something like the recent Bank of Bermuda sale? With a listing on the BSX it would be difficult if not impossible, but maybe they're seeking a listing on NASDAQ or another exchange? Any ideas?

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
