Keystone Bank was taken over by AMCON in 2011 and has been managed by the AMCON-appointed Board and Management that stabilised the bank over the years to make it attractive as a potential target for eventual acquisition by the new investors, who emerged as preferred bidders after a very transparent and competitive bidding process.
