All American Bank, Des Plaines, Illinois, was closed today by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation – Division of Banking, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver. To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with International Bank of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, to assume all of the deposits of All American Bank.

The sole branch of All American Bank will reopen during normal business hours as a branch of International Bank of Chicago. Depositors of All American Bank will automatically become depositors of International Bank of Chicago. 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 All American Bank should continue to use their existing branch until they receive notice from International Bank of Chicago that it has completed systems changes to allow other International Bank of Chicago branches to process their accounts as well.

This evening and over the weekend, depositors of All American 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 June 30, 2011, All American Bank had approximately $37.8 million in total assets and $33.4 million in total deposits. In addition to assuming all of the deposits, International Bank of Chicago agreed to purchase essentially all of the failed bank’s assets.

Customers with questions about today’s transaction should call the FDIC toll-free at 1-800-350-2746. The phone number will be operational this evening until 9:00 p.m., Central Daylight Time (CDT); on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., CDT; on Sunday from noon to 6:00 p.m., CDT; on Monday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., CDT; and thereafter from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., CDT.

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) will be $6.5 million. Compared to other alternatives, International Bank of Chicago’s acquisition was the least costly resolution for the FDIC’s DIF. All American Bank is the 85th FDIC-insured institution to fail in the nation this year, and the ninth in Illinois. The last FDIC-insured institution closed in the state was Country Bank, Aledo, on October 14, 2011.
