Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
On September 11, 2009, Home BancShares, Inc. (the "Company") issued a press release announcing that it has commenced an underwritten public offering of approximately $90 million of its common stock. The underwriters for the offering will be granted an option to purchase up to an additional 15% of the shares sold to cover over-allotments, if any. The offering will be made pursuant to a prospectus supplement filed as part of an effective shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form S-3.
A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
Item 8.01. Other Events.
In connection with the public offering, the Company also disclosed the following recent developments for the two-month period ended August 31, 2009. These highlights are not necessarily indicative of anticipated or actual results for the third quarter of 2009 or future periods.
