On February 17, 2009, the Treasury announced the completion of the fourteenth round of TARP Capital infusions. The Treasury purchased a total of approximately $429 million in securities from 29 financial institutions on Friday, February 13, 2009, and has now invested in 418 institutions, totaling approximately $196 billion.
Of note in this fourteenth round, four institutions received less than $1 million each: Bern Bancshares, Inc., Bern, Kansas, received $985,000; Gregg Bancshares, Inc., Ozark, Missouri, received $825,000; Midwest Regional Bancorp, Inc., Festus, Missouri, received $700,000; and Corning Savings and Loan Association, Corning, Arkansas, received $638,000. Westamerica Bancorporation, San Rafael, California, received the largest infusion at $84 million.
One more state joined the group of states with an institution receiving TARP Capital — Wyoming, with Financial Security Corporation receiving a $5 million infusion. This leaves only Montana, New Mexico, and Vermont without an institution to have received TARP Capital.
