From the FDIC:
Brickwell Community Bank, Woodbury, Minnesota, was closed today by the Minnesota Department of Commerce, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver. To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with CorTrust Bank, N.A., Mitchell, South Dakota, to assume all of the deposits of Brickwell Community Bank.
As of July, 24, 2009, Brickwell Community Bank had total assets of $72 million and total deposits of approximately $63 million. CorTrust Bank will pay the FDIC a premium of 0.10 percent to assume all of the deposits of Brickwell Community Bank. In addition to assuming all of the deposits of the failed bank, CorTrust Bank agreed to purchase essentially all of the assets.
The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) will be $22 million. ... Brickwell Community Bank is the 91st FDIC-insured institution to fail in the nation this year, and the third in Minnesota. The last FDIC-insured institution closed in the state was Mainstreet Bank, Forest Lake, on August 28, 2009.
