Washington, Lincoln Savings Banks to Combine in Stock-Mutual Deal

Lincoln Mutual had yearend deposits of $447 million. Most of its 16 offices are in eastern Washington.

Lincoln lost about $1 million in 1983, and $6 million in 1982. Its net worth has declined by more than half, to just over $14 million, over the past four years.

First Financial, a stock-owned savings and loan, purchased Home, a mutual. That deal was the first stock-mutual combination under new Federal Home Loan Bank Board regulations allowing such formations.

William A. Longbrake, Washington Mutual executive vice president and treasurer, said the transactions will not involve federal assistance. He said Lincoln will be independently appraised, just as if it were converting on its own. The value of Washington Mutual stock to be issued will be no less than the appraised value of Lincoln, and may be greater if Washington Mutual wants to raise capital for other purposes. …
