Doral Financial Shares Fall on Order to Revise Capital Plan
Shares of Doral Financial fell 62%, to close at $3.73 on May 2, 2014, following an announcement that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") advised the company that Doral Bank may not include in the calculation of its Tier 1 Capital some or all of the tax receivables from the Government of Puerto Rico. As of December 31, 2013, tax receivables from the Puerto Rican government accounted for $289 million of Doral Bank's approximately $679 million of Tier 1 Capital. As a result, Doral Bank is no longer in compliance with its capital requirements under its Consent Order with the FDIC and may no longer accept, renew, or roll over any brokered deposits without a waiver by the FDIC. Further, the company revealed that unless it can develop a capital plan that meets regulatory requirements its "financial condition and results of operations will be materially and adversely affected."
