Case study: VSP Global

Founded in 1955 and headquartered in Rancho Cordova, CA, VSP is the nation's only not-for-profit vision insurance company. When VSP's eyewear design and manufacturing arm sought additional capital in 2011 to support ongoing operations and fund future acquisitions, they selected Bank of the West to join their existing syndication group with a $25MM commitment based on the team's responsiveness and the Bank's history as a VSP customer. In 2014, Bank of the West demonstrated its confidence in VSP by stepping in with an additional $45MM to fill the gap created by another syndication member decreasing its position.

The relationship has since deepened, with Bank of the West's merchant credit card team delivering processing solutions and the capital markets team generating an attractive return on a $20 million deposit from a VSP subsidiary.

"Bank of the West has been a responsive and dedicated partner when we've needed them, increasing their capital commitment to give us additional stability and flexibility so we can keep growing our business."
