TROY, Mich., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Talmer Bancorp, Inc. ("Talmer") today announced that it has completed its previously announced purchase of Warren, Ohio-based First Place Bank ("First Place") from First Place Financial Corp. Talmer's total investment of more than $200 million was used to purchase First Place and to recapitalize First Place in order to satisfy regulatory capital requirements and strengthen First Place's balance sheet.
