Oct 1 - First United Bank, Crete, Ill., has been closed by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation – Division of Banking, which appointed the FDIC as receiver. To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Old Plank Trail Community Bank, National Association, New Lenox, Ill., to assume all of the deposits of First United Bank.
As of June 30, 2012, First United Bank had approximately $328.4 million in total assets and $316.9 million in total deposits. Old Plank Trail Community Bank, N.A. will pay the FDIC a premium of 0.60 percent to assume all of the deposits of First United Bank. In addition to assuming all of the deposits, Old Plank Trail Community Bank, N.A. agreed to purchase essentially all of the failed bank's assets.
The FDIC and Old Plank Trail Community Bank, N.A. entered into a loss-share transaction on $172.7 million of First United Bank's assets. Old Plank Trail Community Bank, N.A. will share in the losses on the asset pools covered under the loss-share agreement. The loss-share transaction is projected to maximize returns on the assets covered by keeping them in the private sector. The transaction also is expected to minimize disruptions for loan customers.
