MB Financial has about $15 billion in assets.

“The acquisition of American Chartered is consistent with our mission of building Chicagoland’s premier commercial bank,” MB Financial president and CEO Mitchell Feiger said in a news release.

MB Financial will pay about $100 million in cash and the rest in stock.

The companies expect to complete the merger by June 30.
