FDIC Takes Over Security Bank, North Lauderdale, Florida

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) today appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver for Security Bank National Association, North Lauderdale, Florida. As of March 31, 2012, the bank had approximately $101 million of total assets.

The OCC acted after finding that the bank had experienced substantial dissipation of assets and earnings due to unsafe and unsound practices. The OCC also found that the bank incurred losses that depleted its capital, the bank is critically undercapitalized, and there is no reasonable prospect that the bank will become adequately capitalized without federal assistance.
