Three more banks bit the dust tonight

TeamBank, National Association, Paola, KS

Teambank, National Association, Paola, Kansas, was closed today by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver. To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Great Southern Bank, Springfield, Missouri, to assume all of the deposits of Teambank. The 17 offices of Teambank will reopen as branches of Great Southern Bank on Saturday

As of December 31, 2008, Teambank had total assets of $669.8 million and total deposits of $492.8 million. Great Southern will assume $474 million in deposits and the FDIC will pay out $18.8 million directly to the broker. In addition to assuming all of the deposits of the failed bank, Great Southern Bank agreed to purchase approximately $656.5 million in assets at a discount of $100 million, and pay a 1 percent premium on deposits. The FDIC will retain the remaining assets for later disposition.

The FDIC and Great Southern Bank entered into a loss-share transaction. The FDIC will share 80/20 percent in the losses with Great Southern Bank on approximately $450 million in assets covered under the agreement. The loss-sharing arrangement is projected to maximize returns on the covered assets and to minimize disruptions for loan customers.


Colorado National Bank, Colorado Springs, CO

Colorado National Bank, Colorado Springs, Colorado, was closed today by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver. To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Herring Bank, Amarillo, Texas, to assume all of the deposits of Colorado National.

The four offices of Colorado National will reopen as branches of Herring Bank on Saturday.

As of December 31, 2008, Colorado National had total assets of $123.5 million and total deposits of $82.7 million. In addition to assuming all of the deposits of the failed bank, Herring Bank agreed to purchase approximately $117.3 million in assets at a discount of $4.2 million, and pay a discount of 1.27% percent on deposits. The FDIC will retain the remaining assets for later disposition.

The FDIC and Herring Bank entered into a loss-share transaction. The FDIC will share 80/20 percent in the losses with Herring Bank on approximately $62 million in assets covered under the agreement. The loss-sharing arrangement is projected to maximize returns on the covered assets and minimize disruptions for loan customers.

FirstCity Bank, Stockbridge, GA

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) approved the payout of the insured deposits of FirstCity Bank, Stockbridge, Georgia. The bank was closed today by the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance, which appointed the FDIC as receiver.

The FDIC will provide payment to insured depositors by mailing checks for their insured funds on Monday morning. Direct deposits from the federal government, such as Social Security and Veterans' payments, will be transferred to SunTrust Bank (for the specific SunTrust branches, depositors should call the toll-free telephone number below).

Customers of FirstCity Bank with brokered deposits should contact their brokers about the status of their accounts. The FDIC will provide payment for insured brokered deposits once brokers provide the FDIC with the necessary documents to identify customers and permit a determination of their insured deposit.

As of March 18, 2009, FirstCity had total assets of $297 million and total deposits of $278 million. At the time of closing, the bank had approximately $778,000 in deposits that exceeded the insurance limits. This amount is an estimate that is likely to change once the FDIC obtains additional information from these customers
