The Florida Office of Financial Regulation closed Central Florida State Bank of Belleview, which had $79.1 million in total assets and $77.7 million in deposits when it failed.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was appointed receiver, and sold the failed institution's retail deposits to CenterState Bank of Florida, NA, of Winter Haven.

Central Florida State Bank customers with deposits made through brokers were advised to contact their brokers directly.

CenterState Bank also agreed to purchase the failed bank's assets, and the the FDIC agreed to cover 80% of losses on $53.6 million of the acquired assets.

The acquiring bank is a subsidiary of CenterState Banks (CSFL - Get Report).

Central Florida State Bank's four offices were scheduled to reopen Monday as branches of CenterState Bank of Florida, NA. The FDIC estimated that the cost of Central Florida State Bank's failure to the deposit insurance fund would be $24.4 million.

CenterState didn't acquire any failed banks during 2011, but did purchase three failed Florida institutions in 2010, following one in 2009.
