Form Bloomberg: Omni National Bank in Georgia Shut, 21st U.S. Failure (ht Brad)

Omni National Bank of Atlanta was seized by federal regulators, the 21st U.S. bank to fail this year ...

Omni National, with $980 million in assets, was shut by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was named receiver, the OCC said today in a statement. ...

The failed bank had six branches in Georgia, Illinois, Florida and Texas, and two loan offices in Alabama and Pennsylvania, the OCC said. The lender opened in 2000. The FDIC, which arranges to sell the deposits and assets of failed banks, didn’t immediately identify a buyer for Omni National.
No word from the FDIC yet. Did Bloomberg jump the gun?
