Unofficial Problem Bank list increases to 928 Institutions

This is an unofficial list of Problem Banks compiled only from public sources.

Here is the unofficial problem bank list for May 18, 2012. (table is sortable by assets, state, etc.)

Changes and comments from surferdude808:

The OCC released its actions through mid-April 2012, which contributed to many changes in the Unofficial Problem Bank List. For the week, there were eight additions and four removals that leave the list with 928 institutions and assets of $361.9 billion. The list is up from 924 institutions last week, which represents the first weekly count increase since February 24th, a period of 11 weeks. A year ago, the list held 988 institutions with assets of $423.8 billion.

Among the removals is the failed Alabama Trust Bank, National Association, Sylacauga, AL ($56 million). There were two action terminations -- National Bank of Commerce, Birmingham, AL ($426 million) and BankTennessee, Collierville, TN ($247 million). The Peoples National Bank, Easley, SC ($324 million Ticker: PBCE) was removed because of an unassisted merger.

The eight additions this week are Sterling Bank and Trust, FSB, Southfield, MI ($762 million); The First National Bank of Talladega, Talladega, AL ($421 million); First Federal Bank Texas, Tyler, TX ($212 million Ticker: FFBT); Bank of St. Augustine, Saint Augustine, FL ($186 million); The First National Bank of Wamego, Wamego, KS ($159 million); The First National Bank of Hartford, Hartford, IL ($146 million); The First National Bank of Paducah, Paducah, TX ($56 million); and Flint River National Bank, Camilla, GA ($27 million). Flint River was removed from the list on April 20th when the OCC terminated an Formal Agreement, but the removal was inadvertent as they subsequently put the bank under a Consent Order.

Next week, we anticipate the FDIC will release the 2012q1 Official Problem Bank List and its enforcement actions through April 2012.
