During the month of December, the Treasury completed rounds fifty-two, fifty-three, fifty-four, fifty-five, and fifty-six of TARP Capital infusions.  In these five rounds, which closed on December 4,  December 11, December 18, December 22, and December 29, respectively, the Treasury purchased a total of approximately $159 million in securities from 37 financial institutions (24 of which previously received a TARP capital infusion).  Through December 2009, the Treasury had invested in 709 institutions, totaling approximately $204.9 billion.

In these five rounds, First Community Financial Partners received the largest infusion, $22 million, and Valley Financial Group Ltd. received the smallest infusion, $1.3 million.

Of note during the month of December 24 insitutions received a second investment from Treasury in connection with the TARP expansion for community banks.  This brings the total to 28 institutions that have received a second investment from the Treasury. 

During December, twelve financial institutions (one of which had already re-paid a portion of its funds) re-paid their TARP capital investments: Bank of America ($25 billion); Wells Fargo ($25 billion); Valley National Bancorp ($100 million, completing its re-payment); City National Corporation ($200 million); Trustmark Corporation ($215 million); Eagle Bancorp, Inc. ($15 million); SVB Financial Group ($235 million); Monarch Financial Holdings ($14.7 million); OceanFirst Financial Corp. ($38.3 million); Midland States Bancorp, Inc. ($10.2 million); FPB Financial Corp. ($1 million); and Middleburg Financial Corp. ($22 million).  With Bank of America and Wells Fargo re-paying their TARP funds, of the first “Big 9” institutions that received TARP funds, only Citigroup has yet to re-pay. 

As of the end of December, 2009, 64 financial institutions had re-paid all, or some portion, of their TARP Capital investment, bringing the total amount re-paid to approximately $122 billion.  At the end of December 2009,  Treasury’s outstanding investment equaled approximately $83 billion.  The Treasury has posted its Dividend and Interest Report for December 2009, which can be accessed here.

As discussed in another post,  TARP has been extended until October 3, 2010; however, the TARP Capital Purchase Program ended on December 31, 2009.

* Editor’s note: The original text of this post incorrectly indicated that that TARP CPP for small community banks had been extended until October 3, 2010; instead, TARP has been extended, but the CPP component of TARP was completed on December 31, 2009.
