The transaction was recently completed for $158 million in cash, Umpqua officials reported. Kropschot and four other Alta professionals assisted Umpqua prior to the sale by performing a comprehensive due diligence review of Financial Pacific’s policies, procedures, business processes, and accounting practices.
