Guaranty Bancshares in Mount Pleasant, Texas, has agreed to buy Texas Leadership Bank in Royse City.

The $1.3 billion-asset Guaranty did not disclose how much it would pay for the $75 million-asset Texas Leadership. The merger is expected to close at the end of the first quarter, while a formal conversion will occur in July. All Texas Leadership employees will join Guaranty when the deal is completed.

"Texas Leadership provides Guaranty with a strategic partner in our efforts to expand our footprint into Rockwall County and grow our Texas banking franchise," Ty Abston, Guaranty's chairman and chief executive, said in a press release last week.

Doyle Cooper, executive vice president of Texas Leadership, will serve as the market president for Royse City.

Guaranty has 20 branches in Texas.
