Recapitalization Rhyme: Central Pacific Financial Shows How First Security Group Is A Long-Term Win

"Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity."


"History does not repeat, but it does rhyme."

-Mark Twain

First Security Group Inc. (NASDAQ:FSGI) is a small bank holding company that has recently gone through a recapitalization. What is interesting about this recapitalization is that it is strikingly similar to Central Pacific Financial Corp.'s (NYSE:CPF) recapitalization in 2011, enough to give me deja-vu. I feel many investors haven't been prepared to understand the opportunity that is before them. With some historical insight and in depth analysis, I will show how history is rhyming an opportunity for us potentially to the tune of a 15% CAGR over a 10 year period and with many short-term catalysts.
