Enterprise Financial Services Corp. (EFSC) in St. Louis converted $20 million of trust-preferred securities to common stock, a move that will reduce its borrowing costs and improve its capital position.

The $3.1 billion-asset company converted the trust-preferreds to an equal amount of subordinated debt, and then converted that debt into about 1.2 million shares of common stock, it said Thursday.
