It was acquired by a private equity consortium including includes WL Ross & Co., Carlyle Investment Management, a unit of Blackstone Group (BX), Centerbridge Capital Partners, LeFrak Organization, The Wellcome Trust, Greenaap Investments and East Rock Endowment Fund. The private equity group won't take on approximately $348 million in brokered deposits at BankUnited. Illinois led all U.S. states with 17 banks considered undercapitalized under regulatory guidelines as of March 31, according to preliminary first-quarter regulatory data provided by SNL Financial. The state also has more banks than any other state, with 658 as of Dec. 31. Illinois was one of the last states to remove legal barriers against out-of-state banks doing business within its borders, which is one of the reasons it is not as far along on the road to consolidation as many other states.
