WASHINGTON ( TheStreet) -- State regulators shuttered two banks Friday night, bringing this year's total number of bank failures to 76. Both failed banks were previously included in TheStreet's second-quarter Bank Watch List of undercapitalized institutions, based on regulatory data provided by SNL Financial.
State regulators closed The RiverBank of Wyoming, Minn., which had $417.4 million in total assets and $379.3 million in deposits. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was appointed receiver and sold the failed bank to Central Bank of Stillwater, Minn. The agency agreed to cover 80% of losses on $339.3 million in assets acquired by Central Bank and estimated the cost of The RiverBank's failure to the deposit insurance fund would be $71.4 million. The failed bank's six branches were set to reopen Saturday as Central Bank branches.
Sun Security Bank
The Missouri Division of Finance shut down Sun Security Bank of Ellington, which had $355.9 million in total assets and $290.4 million in deposits. The FDIC was appointed receiver and sold the failed institution to Great Southern Bank of Springfield, Mo. The acquiring bank is the main subsidiary of Great Southern Bancorp ( GSBC). The FDIC agreed to cover 80% of losses on $351.9 of the failed bank's assets acquired by Great Southern Bank and estimated the cost of Sun Security Bank's failure to the deposit insurance fund would be $118.3 million. Sun Security Bank's 27 offices were scheduled to reopen during normal business hours as Great Southern Bank branches.
