“The big issue this quarter has been weak incremental deposit market share. According to our calculations, it has been sub 5%. While I won’t extrapolate a quarter where they were very focused on getting the merger done, still worth asking this question as deposit growth has been weaker than industry and they have lost market share,” said Suresh Ganapathy, research analyst with Macquarie Capital.
