Washington Mutual Savings Bank announced plans Wednesday to raise $150 million from two sales of preferred stock to support an ambitious acquisition program.

Assets at the Seattle-based thrift will mushroom next year to about $14 billion, from $8.4 billion, after completion of the purchases of Pacific First Financial Corp., Seattle, and Pioneer Savings Bank, Lynnwood, Wash., according to spokesman Scott Selby.
