FRC Stock Crash
First Republic Bank (FRC.N) saw its market value dip below $1 billion for the first time ever after news broke that the US government was unwilling to intervene in the bank’s rescue process. Shares in the San Francisco-based bank were halted multiple times as trading activity intensified.
The bank has been looking at several options, such as selling assets or creating a “bad bank”, a crisis-type method of isolating financial assets with problems. FRC’s advisers have already lined up potential purchasers of new stock in the lender if they can fix the bank’s balance sheet, according to a report.
