First Citizens BancShares Inc. is in advanced talks to acquire Silicon Valley Bank after its collapse earlier this month, according to people familiar with the matter.

First Citizens could reach a deal as soon as Sunday to acquire Silicon Valley Bank from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., said the people, who asked to not be identified because the matter isn’t public. No final decision has been made and talks could fall through, the people added.

A representative for the FDIC declined to comment. First Citizens didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

As of Friday, Raleigh, North Carolina-based First Citizens had a market value of $8.4 billion.
