Item 8.01 Other Events
On March 31, 2021, MUFG Union Bank, N.A. (“Union Bank”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of MUFG Americas Holdings Corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Purchase and Assumption Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Pacific Western Bank, a California state-chartered bank and the wholly-owned subsidiary of PacWest Bancorp (“PacWest”). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, PacWest will acquire certain assets and assume certain liabilities related to Union Bank’s Homeowners Association (“HOA”) Services Division for a deposit premium of 5.9% plus the net book values of certain assets and liabilities for cash consideration of approximately $250 million. The final consideration will be based on balances at closing.
At the closing of the acquisition, and subject to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, PacWest will assume the deposit liabilities related to Union Bank’s HOA Services Division and will acquire their related loans. Currently, there are approximately $4.0 billion of deposits related to Union Bank’s HOA Services Division and $6.0 million in related loans.
The transaction, and the related systems conversion, is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021, subject to receipt of regulatory approvals as well as other customary closing conditions.

Forward-Looking Statements
The following appears in accordance with the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act. This Current Report on Form 8-K includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. Often, they include the words “believe,”, “expect,” “target,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “seek,” “estimate,” “potential,” “project,” “forecast,” “outlook,” or words of similar meaning, or future or conditional verbs such as “will,” “would,” “should,” “could,” “might” or “may”. They may also consist of annualized amounts based on historical interim period results. There are numerous risks and uncertainties that could and will cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the Company’s forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the following factors: required regulatory approvals may not be obtained or adverse regulatory conditions may be imposed in connection with such regulatory approvals, conditions to the closing of the sale may not be satisfied, and/or the loss of customers may adversely impact the expected financial benefits of the sale. Many of these factors are beyond the Company’s ability to control or predict and could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition, and results of operations or prospects. For more information about factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations, refer to our reports filed with the SEC, including the discussions under “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and “Risk Factors” in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and in any subsequent filings with the SEC and available on the SEC’s website at In addition to the aforementioned factors, the COVID-19 global pandemic is adversely affecting us, our clients, and our third-party service providers, among others, and its impact may adversely affect our business and results of operations over a period of time. Any factor described above, in this Current Report on Form 8-K, or in our SEC reports could, by itself or together with one or more other factors, adversely affect our financial condition, results of operations and prospects. All forward-looking statements contained herein are based on information available at the time of this Current Report on Form 8-K, and the Company assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements.
