15 Casualties in Deadly Week

Recent mortgage-related operations to close

Nov. 2, 2009

By staff

In addition to one net branch, two wholesale lending operations and two credit unions that were closed down last week, nine banks failed on Friday.

The nine banks were all subsidiaries of Oak Park, Ill.-based FBOP Corp., according to an announcement from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation -- which was named receiver of all of the failed firms. FBOP, though, remains open.

Six of the institutions were seized by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. Those firms were California National Bank in Los Angeles; Citizens National Bank in Teague, Texas; Pacific National Bank in San Francisco; Park National Bank & Trust in Chicago; and San Diego National Bank in San Diego.

The OCC noted that the failures of Citizens National and Park National were the result of cross guaranties on the other failed institutions.

The other three banks were Bank USA, N.A., in Phoenix; Community Bank of Lemont in Lemont, Ill., and North Houston Bank in Houston.

U.S. Bank, N.A., agreed to assume the deposits of all nine failed institutions and acquire "essentially all" of their assets from the FDIC, which agreed to share in losses on $14.4 billion of the assets. The FDIC expects to lose $2.5 billion from the collective failures of the nine banks.

The OCC issued a cease-and-desist order against California National in May and a civil money penalty against it last year. In August, the OCC issued a cease-and-desist order against San Diego National. Pacific National faced an OCC cease-and-desist orders in August and October as did Park National in August.

The FDIC issued a cease-and-desist order against Community Bank of Lemont in February.

So far during 2009, 115 FDIC-insured banks have failed. Almost 8,200 FDIC-insured institutions remain in business.

Another financial institution to close last week was Second Baptist Church Credit Union, which was seized Thursday by the California Department of Financial Institutions, according to the National Credit Union Administration. The Los Angeles credit union's 340 members will now be served by Prosperity Federal Credit Union.

The NCUA also reported that it seized control of operations at First Delta Federal Credit Union in Marks, Miss. The $5 million institution, which has 5,500 members, will continue to operate under the control of the NCUA.

The Mortgage Lender Implode-O-Meter recently reported that the following mortgage operations were shut down.

Company Type Date Reported # of employees Originations
AME Financial Corp. wholesale Oct. 30 135 $35 million/month
