County First Bank Rejects Bailout Money
The Board of Directors of County First Bank has elected not to take the TARP (Government Bailout) money made available by the U.S. Treasury. TARP, which stands for Troubled Asset Relief Program, was originally designed to provide additional capital to financial institutions to absorb credit losses and to provide additional funds to make loans. In exchange for the money, the government takes an ownership interest in the receiving institution in the form of non-voting, preferred stock with several strings attached, but without much oversight.
County First Bank, a locally owned and managed, full-service community bank continues to enjoy strong earnings, excess capital, and minimal credit problems. The Board and management feel strongly that taking the TARP money is unnecessary and inappropriate because of the bank’s solid financial standing and because TARP funds would dilute earnings otherwise available for common stockholders. Finally, County First Bank does not feel comfortable augmenting sound banking practices with bailout money from taxpayers.
