It was not a good week for Oglethorpe Bank.

The Brunswick, Ga., institution was closed down by the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance.

The seven-year-old bank had just 37 employees. It owned $70 million in residential loans secured by one- to four-family units. In addition, commercial mortgage holdings were $50 million, and construction-and-land-development assets were $29 million.

Bank of the Ozarks was named the winning bidder of the failed bank by the FDIC.

The deal calls for Bank of the Ozarks to acquire all of Oglethorpe's $231 million in total assets as of Sept. 30. Bank of the Ozarks negotiated the FDIC's participation in losses on $174 million of the assets.

Bank of the Ozarks was able to pick up Oglethorpe's $213 million in deposits with no premium paid.
