Actions taken against directors, officers of failed Texas bank

Civil money and personal cease and desist orders were filed against directors and officers of a failed Texas bank by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) in September, according to the release of the agency’s most recent enforcement actions.

Overall, the agency reported, it took 15 actions against bank directors and officers between Aug. 31 and Oct. 2 in 11 states; the agency also issued four terminations of action in four states during the same period.

The actions in Texas were taken against directors and officers of First National Bank in Edinburg, a $3.1 billion bank that was closed in 2013 after the agency found it “critically undercapitalized.” In its filings, OCC reports that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) estimated First National’s failure resulted in $637.5 million in losses to the Deposit Insurance Fund (“DIF”).

The OCC alleges that the directors and officers of the company engaged in unsafe or unsound practices, breached their fiduciary duty of care, and violated federal law “with regard to loans to fund sales of holding company stock and improperly including the loan proceeds as capital.”
