OCC Appoints Receiver for Western Springs National Bank and Trust
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) today appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver for Western Springs National Bank and Trust, Western Springs, Illinois. As of December 31, 2010, the bank had approximately $186.7 million in total assets.
The OCC acted after finding that the bank had experienced substantial dissipation of assets and earnings due to unsafe or 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.
The FDIC will release information about the resolution of the bank.
