The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
(FDIC) shuttered lenders based in Alabama, Georgia, Minnesota and
Mississippi on 15 April, the largest of which was Alabama-based
Superior Bank.

Superior had a 73-branch-strong network

total deposits.

Its failure is expected to cost the FDIC’s
insurance fund $259.6 million.

To protect depositors, the FDIC entered
into a purchase and assumption agreement with Superior Bank, NA,
Alabama, a newly-chartered bank subsidiary of Community Bancorp of
Texas, to assume all of the deposits of Superior Bank.
