Oak Valley Bancorp (NASDAQ: OVLY), the bank holding company for Oak Valley Community Bank and Eastern Sierra Community Bank, has reported that it has completed its acquisition of Mother Lode Bank (OTC PINK: MOLB) following the merger of Mother Lode Bank into Oak Valley Community Bank.

The total consideration for the acquisition was approximately USD7.3m in exchange for all outstanding common stock shares.

In August, the company announced its plans to acquire Mother Lode Bank, a California-state chartered bank with USD78m in assets and two branches in Sonora, CA.
