WASHINGTON — TD Bank of Wilmington, Del., purchased three separate failed banks in Florida late Friday, totaling $3.9 billion in assets, on a night that saw a total of eight bank collapses.
TD Bank bought $3.42 billion-asset Riverside National Bank of Florida; $393.3 million-asset First Federal Bank of North Florida and $90.5 million-asset AmericanFirst Bank. The three institutions were not affiliated with each other, but their purchase will allow TD Bank to pick up $3.1 billion in deposits and 69 offices in Florida.
In addition to picking up all of the banks' deposits, TD Bank bought virtually all of their assets as well. The bank entered into a loss-share agreement with the FDIC on a total of $2.2 billion of the failed institutions' assets. The agency said that initially TD Bank and the FDIC will share in the losses on a 50%-50% basis.
The FDIC estimated their failure will cost the Deposit Insurance Fund more than $500 million.
Friday was a busy night for the FDIC. In addition to those collapses, it also closed five other banks, bringing the yearly failure total to 50. Those failures totaled $2.2 billion in assets and are expected to cost the DIF $476 million.
The FDIC could not find a buyer for Lakeside Community Bank, a $53 million-asset bank in Sterling Heights, Mich., which was shut down by state regulators. The agency planned to mail checks to depositors. The bank held $52.3 million in total deposits, all of which were insured. The failure is expected to cost the DIF $11.2 million.
