Wow. A southeast bank gobbling up another southeast bank.

Surprised they're headquartering in Charlotte. I know it is a major banking hub as well, but I would think Atlanta would trump in this situation.

Yeah the companies are calling it a merger of equals, but BB&T is without a doubt the alpha dog in this deal, and tendering heavy cash.

Curious to what the new company will be called. And I agree, sucks to lose a major corporate headquarters out of ATL, although there will still be a major operations hub.

They are renaming all together. Hopefully we can get Big Dick Bank Park or something similar

Maybe even Atl > Nola Park

Narcos Field at Coke Park would be a hell of a way for Netflix and Coke to strike up a partnership

I always wondered why coca cola never got the naming rights it only seems right that they should have gotten it

I'd say maybe they're just not that into slapping their name onto things, but the Battery itself has the Coca-Cola Roxy, so I guess maybe they just didn't like the cost of naming rights on a stadium.

Surprised Home Depot didn't push harder during the initial bid. Their corporate HQ is literally a couple exits from the Battery.

SunTrust has been in the rumor mill for a merger for over 30 years.

I actually gave up on it happening. Especially with the naming rights for the braves.

We are going to end up with Liberty Media Field.

re: SunTrust Park is getting a new name.
This was written into the contact (buyout/renaming of SUntrust) so SunTrust still owns the rights to the stadium. I am sure both sides have to agree on the new name though
