Central Florida State Bank, Belleview, Florida, was closed today by the Florida Office of Financial Regulation, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver. To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with CenterState Bank of Florida, National Association, Winter Haven, Florida, to assume all of the deposits of Central Florida State Bank.
The four branches of Central Florida State Bank will reopen on Monday as branches of CenterState Bank of Florida, National Association. Depositors of Central Florida State Bank will automatically become depositors of CenterState Bank of Florida, National Association. Deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no need for customers to change their banking relationship in order to retain their deposit insurance coverage up to applicable limits. Customers of Central Florida State Bank should continue to use their existing branch until they receive notice from CenterState Bank of Florida, National Association that it has completed systems changes to allow other CenterState Bank of Florida, National Association branches to process their accounts as well.
This evening and over the weekend, depositors of Central Florida State Bank can access their money by writing checks or using ATM or debit cards. Checks drawn on the bank will continue to be processed. Loan customers should continue to make their payments as usual.
As of September 30, 2011, Central Florida State Bank had approximately $79.1 million in total assets and $77.7 million in total deposits. In addition to assuming all of the deposits of the failed bank, CenterState Bank of Florida, National Association agreed to purchase essentially all of the assets.
The FDIC and CenterState Bank of Florida, National Association entered into a loss-share transaction on $53.6 million of Central Florida State Bank's assets. CenterState Bank of Florida, National Association will share in the losses on the asset pools covered under the loss-share agreement. The loss-share transaction is projected to maximize returns on the assets covered by keeping them in the private sector. The transaction also is expected to minimize disruptions for loan customers.

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) will be $24.4 million. Compared to other alternatives, CenterState Bank of Florida, National Association's acquisition was the least costly resolution for the FDIC's DIF. Central Florida State Bank is the first FDIC-insured institution to fail in the nation this year, and the first in Florida. The last FDIC-insured institution closed in the state was Premier Community Bank of the Emerald Coast, Crestview, on December 16, 2011.

Congress created the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in 1933 to restore public confidence in the nation's banking system. The FDIC insures deposits at the nation's 7,437 banks and savings associations, and it promotes the safety and soundness of these institutions by identifying, monitoring and addressing risks to which they are exposed. The FDIC receives no federal tax dollars — insured financial institutions fund its operations.
