BancorpSouth Bank’s board of directors recently took the podium at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and rang the bell to open Monday’s
trading session at America’s oldest and the world’s largest stock exchange.The event marked BancorpSouth’s 20th anniversary as an NYSE-listed firm, one of three Mississippi-based companies traded on the Big Board.

BancorpSouth Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dan Rollins led the BancorpSouth delegation which included current and former BancorpSouth directors.

“As a company that traces its roots back 141 years,” Rollins said, “we are pleased to mark this milestone and celebrate our growth over the past 20 years as a New York Stock Exchange listed and traded firm. It is an honor to represent all BancorpSouth teammates ringing the opening bell.”

When BancorpSouth was listed on the NYSE, it was a banking company with nearly $4 billion in assets. Since then, it has grown in size and strength to become a banking company with nearly $15 billion in assets. And with pending acquisitions, it could soon reach nearly $17 billion in assets.
