Prosperity Bancshares will pay $60 million and issue up to 3.3 million shares of its common stock for all outstanding shares of Coppermark's capital stock. Prosperity's publicly traded stock closed Monday at $41.22, which puts the current value of the shares in the transaction at more than $134 million, and total value on the transaction about $194 million.
