Two Bank Failures Push ’09 Count to 25

Apr 20, 2009By

Another two bank failures announced late Friday pushed the running total to 25 banks shut down by federal regulators so far this year, marking a substantial increase from the pace of bank failures seen last year. As of April 2008, regulators had closed only two banks, demonstrating the continued effects of deteriorating financial markets on U.S. banks. Friday’s bank failures will cost an estimated $84m to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) insurance fund. The failures put a total $452m in combined assets  on the line for purchase or disposition.
