First Citizens Bank of NC (FCNCA
) is buying most of the assets of the failed Silicon Valley Bank of CA. The FDIC will have some equity in FCNCA and a loss-sharing agreement with FCNCA. The FDIC deposit insurance fund will take a big hit.
"...As of March 10, 2023, Silicon Valley Bridge Bank, National Association, had approximately $167 billion in total assets and about $119 billion in total deposits.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. is on its way to profiting off the deal it helped broker for First Citizens BancShares Inc.’s takeover of SVB Financial Group.
Equity-appreciation rights awarded to the regulator went into the money Monday, as shares began trading with a surge of as much as 49%, to $870.15. The rights, which have a potential value of $500 million, mean the FDIC stands to gain if the stock rises above $582.55, according to a regulatory filing.
