Ryan Beck Seen with Fee Bonanza on People's Deal


Mazzucca, Tim, American Banker


BankAtlantic Bancorp Inc.'s investment banking unit, Ryan Beck & Co. Inc., may have postponed its own public offering, but its participation in another company's upcoming stock offering has prompted an analyst to raise his earnings estimates for BankAtlantic.

"Although we view this as a one-time event for BankAtlantic, we believe this does help with efforts to restructure Ryan Beck's operations and makes Ryan Beck more attractive in a liquidity scenario," Mr. Harralson wrote.

His estimate of Ryan Beck's deal fee was based on its being paid 1% of the People's subscription agreement and 0.6% of the syndicate offering. Ryan Beck is to work alongside Morgan Stanley of New York as book runner and global coordinator for the People's offering.

People's Bank, which has $10.6 billion of assets, said Friday that it planned to offer 127.5 million to 172.5 million shares of common stock at $20 a share, putting the offering's worth at $2.55 billion to $3.45 billion.
