200 Banks at Risk to Fail in 2012

According to a recent report released by Trepp, there are more than 200 banks earmarked for likely failure in 2012. Three have already failed. Georgia has the largest concentration of those identified (41), followed by Florida (32), Illinois (24), and Minnesota (12).

The stats represent a slowdown from this same time last year, with 22 at the end of April 2012, compared to 39 at the end of April 2011. Why the slowdown? Struggling banks are being given more time to course correct, raise capital and improve performance. But, that could mean closures filtering over into next year. Bad commercial real estate loans account for over 70% of non-performing loans at the failing banks, followed closely by residential real estate loans with 25% of the total.
