Item 2.01    Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

Effective March 13, 2020, Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida (“Seacoast” or the “Company”) completed its previously announced merger (the "Merger") with First Bank of the Palm Beaches ("First Bank"). At the effective time of the Merger (the "Effective Time"), First Bank merged with and into Seacoast National Bank, with Seacoast National Bank as the surviving bank, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Agreement and Plan of Merger by and among the Company, First Bank and Seacoast National Bank, dated as of November 19, 2019, as amended and restated (the "Merger Agreement").

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, holders of First Bank common stock received 0.2000 of a share of Seacoast common stock (subject to the payment of cash in lieu of fractional shares) for each share of First Bank common stock held immediately prior to the Effective Time. The aggregate amount paid by Seacoast for the merger consideration was approximately $21.9 million based on the closing price of Seacoast common stock on March 13, 2020. Each share of Seacoast common stock outstanding immediately prior to the Merger remained outstanding and was unaffected by the Merger.
 
The foregoing description of the Merger and the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which is included as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 8.01    Other Events.

On March 13, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing the completion of the Merger. A copy of the press release is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
