NEW YORK (Reuters) – SVB Financial Group Inc is urgently exploring all available options, including a sale of the technology-focused bank, after its bid to raise money through a stock sale failed in the wake of some of its clients withdrawing deposits, according to people familiar with the matter.
SVB is talking to other financial institutions and working with advisers as it reviews how it can secure funding, one of the sources said.
The sources requested anonymity because the matter is confidential. SVB did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
