FDIC Friday night: Three more bankruptcies in Georgia

Yesterday I wrote how bank bankruptcies are crushing small business and households in Georgia. Today we got three more to bring the total to 23 this year, 29 since the subprime crisis began.

The Buckhead Community Bank, Atlanta, Georgia

As of November 6, 2009, The Buckhead Community Bank had total assets of approximately $874.0 million and total deposits of approximately $838.0 million. State Bank and Trust Company did not pay the FDIC a premium for the deposits of The Buckhead Community Bank. In addition to assuming all of the deposits of the failed bank, State Bank and Trust Company agreed to purchase essentially all of the failed bank’s assets.

The FDIC and State Bank and Trust Company entered into a loss-share transaction on approximately $692 million of The Buckhead Community Bank’s assets. State Bank and Trust Company will share in the losses on the asset pools covered under the loss-share agreement.
