Chickasha Bank & Trust Company announced that it has been acquired by the company that owns and runs Liberty National Bank out of Lawton.

Pending approval from regulatory agencies, B.O.E. Bancshares, Inc., which has complete control of Liberty National, will acquire all $180 million in assets of Chickasha Bank and its five locations across Grady, Caddo and McClain counties. A statement from Chickasha Bank on Friday confirmed it will retain its current name, and current employees will keep their jobs.
