U.S.A Bank Failures

July 26th, 2010 by James

U.S.A Bank FailuresFinancial crisis in the late 2000s led to the failure of a number of banks in the United States. A bank failure is the closing of a bank by a federal or state banking regulatory agency. The seven bank seizures announced Friday bring to 103 the failures so far in 2010. More than a million American households lost access to basic banking services. Poor and minority families are especially hard-hit.

From yahoo.com:

U.S. bank failures reached 103 so far in 2010 on Friday as regulators seized seven small banks, a faster pace of closures than last year when the century mark was not reached until October.

Bank failures are expected to peak this quarter, with the industry slowly recovering from large portfolios of bad loans, many tied to commercial real estate.

The banks seized on Friday were Sterling Bank of Lantana, Florida; Crescent Bank and Trust Company of Jasper, Georgia; Williamsburg First National Bank of Kingstree, South Carolina; Thunder Bank of Sylvan Grove, Kansas; Community Security Bank of New Prague, Minnesota; Southwest USA Bank of Las Vegas, Nevada and Home Valley Bank of Cave Junction, Oregon, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

The largest of the seven banks was Crescent Bank and Trust with 11 branches and about $1.01 billion in total assets and $965.7 million in total deposits. The smallest was Thunder Bank with just two branches and $32.6 million in total assets and $28.5 million in deposits.

The FDIC estimated the seven failures would add about $431 million to the tab for its deposit insurance fund.

The FDIC late last month gave an update on the overall health of the bank industry, saying it sees improvements, but economic threats are still lurking.

The agency, which insures individual accounts up to $250,000, updated its estimates of the cost of bank failures, now expecting a $60 billion hit to its insurance fund from 2010 through 2014.

The recovery of the community bank industry has lagged the bounceback of Wall Street and the healing in the overall economy.

IBERIABANK Corp agreed to assume all of the deposits of Sterling Bank, the FDIC said.

The FDIC introduced loss-sharing agreements since the number of bank closings would likely be higher this year. The wave of bank failures is expected to continue throughout the year as the weak housing market and rising unemployment rate cause more borrowers to default on their loans.
