    In the failure of Westside Community Bank there was no "loss-share agreement." The charge offs were primarily in nonfarm/nonresidential properties, followed often by commercial and industrial charge offs. The cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) will be $20.3 million.

    Last year loss-share agreements with the buyers was 20 of the 51 closed banks. In 2011 it was 58 of the 92 closed banks.
