Capital Bank was formed by Capital Bank Financial Corp. (formerly North American Financial Holdings, Inc.), a bank holding company incorporated in the state of Delaware in 2009. Capital Bank Financial Corp.’s objective is to create a regional banking franchise in the southeastern United States through organic growth and acquisitions of other banks, including failed, underperforming and undercapitalized banks. Beginning in December 2009, Capital Bank Financial Corp. raised approximately $900 million to make acquisitions through a series of private placements of its common stock. Since then, Capital Bank Financial Corp. has acquired seven community banks.
As of December 31, 2016, we operate 196 branches in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Through our branches, we offer a wide range of commercial and consumer loans and deposit products, as well as ancillary financial services.
Capital Bank Financial Corp.’s banking operations commenced on July 16, 2010, when we purchased approximately $1.2 billion of assets and assumed approximately $960.1 million of deposits of three failed banks from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). In connection with these acquisitions, Capital Bank Financial Corp. entered into loss sharing agreements with the FDIC covering approximately $796.1 million of outstanding loan balances and real estate of the banks that we acquired. Under the loss sharing agreements, the FDIC agreed to absorb 80 percent of all future credit losses and workout expenses associated with these assets.
