Union Bank buys Everett-based Frontier Bank
Apr 30 2010, 8:21 PM
OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) closed Frontier Bank today, citing inadequate capital and severe loan losses. Immediately following the closure, DFI named the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver of Frontier Bank.
The FDIC immediately entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Union Bank, NA headquartered in San Francisco. Union Bank will assume all deposits and certain assets of Frontier Bank, except certain brokered deposits, which will be paid out by the FDIC.
“Frontier Bank’s capital has been depleted by large loan losses and loan loss reserve provisions associated with its real estate construction loan portfolio,” Brad Williamson, Director of DFI’s Division of Banks explained. “Frontier’s management team has worked hard to recapitalize the bank throughout the past year. However, the economic climate has made this task very difficult and the continuing loan losses finally brought the bank’s capital to an unsustainable level.”
