We are pleased to announce that Stock Yards Bancorp has signed a definitive agreement to merge Kentucky Bancorp into Stock Yards Bank & Trust.  We are very excited by the many opportunities this offers for us, expanding our footprint in our home state of Kentucky, creating new avenues for growth as well as providing Kentucky Bank’s customers access to expanded services and convenience.  Most importantly, the transaction solidifies the strong community bank culture that exists within both institutions and provides Kentucky Bank’s employees the ability to continue to offer the extraordinary service to their customers that has been the cornerstone of the bank.

We recognize that this announcement may lead to a few questions; we have prepared a set of Frequently Asked Questions to help you. In the event you still have questions, our Call Center is available (see right panel.)
