Home BancShares, Inc. ("Home" or the "Registrant") hereby furnishes its October 23, 2014 press release announcing the completion of its acquisition of Broward Financial Holdings, Inc. ("BFHI") and its bank subsidiary, Broward Bank of Commerce ("Broward"). A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On October 23, 2014, Home, parent company of Centennial Bank ("Centennial"), completed its acquisition of BFHI, parent company of Broward, pursuant to a previously announced definitive agreement and plan of merger whereby a wholly-owned acquisition subsidiary ("Acquisition Sub II") of Home merged with and into BFHI, resulting in BFHI becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Home. Immediately thereafter, Broward was merged into Centennial. Under the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated July 30, 2014 by and among Home, Centennial, BFHI, Broward and Acquisition Sub II (the "Merger Agreement"), Home will issue approximately 1,021,000 shares of its common stock valued at approximately $29,754,001 as of October 23, 2014, plus approximately $3,306,000 in cash in exchange for all outstanding shares of BFHI common stock. Home has also agreed to pay the BFHI shareholders at an undetermined date up to approximately $751,000 in additional consideration. The amount and timing of the additional payment, if any, will depend on future payments received or losses incurred by Centennial from certain current Broward loans.
