BancFirst Corporation is corporation which operates under the name BancFirst, a state chartered bank in Oklahoma, United States. In 2012, it was in 50 Oklahoma communities, and was the largest state chartered bank in Oklahoma.[citation needed]

History[edit]

The roots of BancFirst date back to 1966 when current lead stockholder and Chairman H.E. “Gene” Rainbolt purchased Federal National Bank in Shawnee, Oklahoma.[citation needed] Federal National had $16 million in assets at the time of purchase.[citation needed] Throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s Rainbolt acquired interests in many Oklahoma banks and formed Thunderbird Financial Corporation to assist each bank with management services.[citation needed] In 1985, Rainbolt’s banks in seven communities were brought under the ownership of United Community Corporation.[citation needed] Two years later, Rainbolt acquired five additional banks, each in separate communities, marking the beginning of a statewide organization.

BancFirst was formally organized in 1989 when Rainbolt consolidated his twelve banks under a single state charter, and officially named his company BancFirst, and opened his corporate office in Oklahoma City, the largest city in Oklahoma.[citation needed] The first public offering of BancFirst stock was in 1993 on the NASDAQ. BancFirst’s trading symbol is BANF. By 1994, the now publicly owned BancFirst still led by Rainbolt had expanded into Tulsa, the second largest market in Oklahoma.[citation needed]

Currently[edit]

BancFirst continues to grow today through branch expansion and acquiring smaller banks. Currently, BancFirst has 129 service locations, 93 staffed offices, 81 offices with ATMs, 36 stand-alone ATMs, 117+ total ATMs, fee-free access to 300+ free ATMs at 7-Eleven stores, most Oklahoma E-Z-GO stores, and Walgreens drug stores. As of 2013, BancFirst has 18 Deposit accepting ATM's located around the state, including the towns of Lone Wolf, Thackerville, Davenport, and the Student Union located inside Oklahoma State University.

It is the third largest bank in Oklahoma behind Bank of Oklahoma and Midfirst Bank.[citation needed] BancFirst is also the largest state chartered bank in Oklahoma.[citation needed]

During the financial crisis of late 2008, BancFirst was virtually unaffected.[citation needed] In a study released by the Bank Director magazine in the 4th quarter of 2007, BancFirst was listed as the 17th strongest bank in the country. The following year, the 2009 edition of Bank Director magazine had improved their ranking of BancFirst all the way up to 11th strongest bank in the U.S.

According to rankabank.com, as of December 2013, BancFirst's assets total $5,906,914,000, while deposits total $5,338,147,000
