Missouri Bank Fails, 2012 Tally at 33
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- State regulators late Friday afternoon closed Glasgow Savings Bank Glasgow, Mo., bringing this year's total number of bank failures to 33.
Glasgow Savings Bank had $24.8 million in total assets and $24.2 million in deposits when it was seized by the Missouri Division of Finance. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was appointed receiver and sold the failed institution to Regional Missouri Bank of Marceline.
The failed office was scheduled to reopen Saturday as a branch of Regional Missouri Bank.
The FDIC estimated that the cost of Glasgow Savings Bank's failure to the deposit insurance fund would be about $100,000.
Glasgow Savings Bank was the first Missouri institution to fail this year. Georgia leads all states with six bank failures during 2012, followed by Florida and Illinois, which have each seen four banks or thrifts fail this year.
