Under the terms of the agreement, Flagstar Bank will take over Signature Bank’s deposits, certain loan portfolios and 40 branches.
Specifically, the transaction included the acquisition of around $38.4bn of Signature Bank’s assets, including loans of $12.9bn purchased at a discount of $2.7bn.
Earlier this month, Signature Bank was put under the receivership of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), two days after the California-based Silicon Valley Bank failed.
The FDIC will continue to hold around Signature Bank’s $60bn loans that will be disposed of later.
Flagstar Bank is a wholly owned subsidiary of New York Community Bancorp.
