Under the terms of the deal, UFCU acquired all loans, investments, real estate, accrued interest receivables and other banking-related assets of GSB with an estimated value of approximately $80 million. The credit union assumed all deposits, Federal Home Loan Bank advances, and accrued interest payable of approximately $80 million.
