Long Description:
Hibernia Bank was founded in 1870, and acquired by CapitalOne in 2005. The deal had been negotiated at length, and was set for closing sometime in late September 2005. But then Hurricane Katrina hit. Due to the damage of the hurricane on Hibernia’s assets, the acquisition price was lowered by $0.3 billion.
