8 BANKS SHUT DOWN on August 20, 2010, 118 Banks fail in 2010!!

On Friday, August 20, 2010, EIGHT BANKS were CLOSED by U.S. regulators. The eight failed institutions were located in, Florida, Virginia, Illinois and California. This brings the total number of US Bank Failures to 118 so far in 2010, compared to 140 in 2009, 25 in 2008 and 3 in 2007. If bank failures continue at this pace, an estimate of over 190 banks will fail in 2010. These Eight bank failures had total ASSETS of approximately $4.4 BILLION and total deposits of approximately $3.5 BILLION. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) estimates the cost of the eight bank closures to its Deposit Insurance Fund (“DIF”) will be approximately $473.5 million.

Although the economy is showing signs of a gradual recovery with the larger financial institutions stabilizing, tumbling home prices, soaring loan defaults in residential and commercial real estate and rising unemployment continue to take their toll on small banks. In the fourth quarter of 2009, the number of banks on the FDIC’s list of problem institutions grew to 702 from 552 in the third quarter of 2009. This is the highest number of problem institutions since the savings and loan crisis in the early 1990′s. Increasing loan losses on commercial real estate are expected to cause hundreds more bank failures in the next few years. The FDIC anticipates bank failures to cost over $100 billion over the next three years.

The EIGHT failed banks are:

  • Community National Bank at Bartow – Bartow, Florida, and Independent National Bank –  Ocala, Florida, were closed by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, which then appointed the FDIC as receiver for the two banks.
