From Martha Dreyer Duperray at Caribbean Business: Frank Stipes out as Westernbank chief
Westernbank President and CFO Frank Stipes ... resigned [on Friday] ... sources told caribbeanbusinesspr.com that agreement has been reached by the troubled bank to sell several branches to Banco Popular ...From the Unofficial Problem Bank List - there are three banks in Puerto Rico operating under Cease & Desist orders:
1) Westernbank Puerto Rico in Mayaguez with $11.9 billion in assets.
2) R-G Premier Bank of Puerto Rico in Hato Rey with $6.6 billion in assets.
3) Eurobank in Hato Rey with $2.6 billion in assets
All three are rumored to be out for bid. Last week the FDIC was busy in Illinois. Is this the week for Puerto Rico?
