Unofficial Problem Bank List Increases to 840: 1/9 of Banks in Trouble

The Unofficial Problem Bank List grew by more than five percent this week as the FDIC released its enforcement actions for July 2010. This week, there were 28 additions and 5 removals. Also, the list was updated to reflect assets as of the second quarter. For institutions on the list since the first quarter, aggregate assets declined by $13.9 billion. With these changes, the Unofficial Problem Bank List includes 840 institutions with aggregate assets of $410.3 billion. Removals include First National Bank and Trust of Syracuse ($58 million), Town Center Bank ($40 million), and Peoples State Bank ($26 million), which were involved in unassisted mergers during July. Other removals from action termination include Independence Bank ($352 million) and Darien Rowayton Bank ($107 million). Among the 28 additions are TIB Bank, Naples, FL ($1.7 billion); CB&S Bank, Inc., Russellville, AL ($1.3 billion); First Bank and Trust, New Orleans, LA ($944 million); Citizens Bank of Mukwonago, Mukwonago, WI ($627 million); and First Chatham Bank, Savannah, GA ($596 million). Geographically, the additions include 5 institutions from Illinois, 4 from Florida, and 3 from Minnesota. Next week, the FDIC likely will release the Official Problem Bank List as of June 30th.
