7 Banks Closed Before Holiday Weekend

Six Illinois Institutions Among the Failures The July 4th holiday weekend started off with a bang late Thursday when federal regulators announced the closings of seven banks - six of them in Illinois, one in Texas.

The seven failed institutions include: Founders Bank, Worth, IL.; Millennium State Bank of Texas, Dallas, TX; The First National Bank of Danville, Danville, IL.; The Elizabeth State Bank, Elizabeth, IL.; Rock River Bank, Oregon, IL.; The First State Bank of Winchester, Winchester, IL.; The John Warner Bank, Clinton, IL.

According to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), which oversaw the closures, the six IL bank failures were no coincidence. "The six failed Illinois banks are all controlled by one family and followed a similar business model that created concentrated exposure in each institution," the FDIC said in news releases about the closures. "The failure of these banks resulted primarily from losses related to the banks' investment in collateralized debt obligations and other loan losses."

In all, 52 banks and five credit unions have failed so far in 2009, as compared to 40 failed institutions in all of 2008.
