TD Bank bought three failed Florida-based banks on April 16, with a combined $3.9 billion in assets, among a total of eight bank failures on Friday that brought the total 2010 bank failures to 50.

TD Bank Acquisitions

Riverside National Bank of Florida with $3.42 billion in assets, First Federal Bank of North Florida with $393.3 million in assets and AmericanFirst Bank with $90.5 million in assets, were the three non-affiliated institutions that held $3.1 billion in deposits and 69 offices in Florida – now a part of TD Bank. TD Bank and the FDIC have agreed to an equal split in the losses. The FDIC estimates the three Florida-based bank failures to cost the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) more than $500 million.
