Special Report by SNL Financial

The regulators did not close any banks Aug. 16, keeping the year's total number of failures at 18. In 2012, regulators had closed 40 banks through Aug. 16.

As of Aug. 16, only two of the 18 bank failures thus far in 2013 have been involved in a loss-share agreement. In 2012, the FDIC entered loss-share agreements with the buyers of 20 of the 51 closed banks. In 2011, the FDIC entered loss-share agreements with the buyers of 58 of the 92 closed banks.

The median cost to the deposit insurance fund at the time of announcement as a percentage of the failed banks' assets was 27% in 2013, 21% in 2012 and 23% in 2011.
