PLANT CITY —Andrew Samuel, CEO of Sunshine Bank, was invited to ring the Opening Bell at the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square Monday, according to a statement.

Founded in 1954, Sunshine Bank is a Plant City-based subsidiary of Sunshine Bancorp. In July, the bank acquired two branches of Lake City-based First Federal Bank of Florida.

That acquisition increased the bank's assets by nearly $250 million. As of Sept. 31, 2015, Sunshine Bank had more than $441 million in total assets, a 98% increase over 2014, according to Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. data.
