National Penn Bancshares, Inc. (referred to as National Penn or NatPenn) was an American financial services corporation, with assets (as of April 14, 2015) of approximately $9.6 billion. National Penn operations include a regional banking franchise operating primarily in three states with more than 130 branches, as well as online and mobile services. It also operated a trust company (National Penn Investors Trust Company) and a wealth management division (National Penn Wealth Management).[1]

By assets, National Penn is the seventy-second largest bank in the United States, and the fifth largest bank headquartered in Pennsylvania. National Penn is based in Allentown. National Penn trades on NASDAQ under the symbol NPBC.[2] In August 2015, it was announced National Penn had been acquired by BB&T.[3][4]

National Penn was founded in 1874 as The National Bank of Boyertown.[5] The company went public in 1982, and changed its name to National Penn in 1993. The bank has completed twelve acquisitions since 1990, and terminated one.[2] By 2015, National Penn had grown into 124 branches in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland,[3] and the bank had $9.6 billion in assets.[4]

In the spring of 2014, National Penn moved its headquarters to downtown Allentown, consolidating their facilities in one location.[6] In August 2015, it was announced National Penn had been acquired by BB&T, which was expanding its presence in the mid-Atlantic states.[3] National Penn CEO Scott Fainor said the deal was practical because BB&T could offer customers a wider range of products and services, such as deposit, loan and insurance offerings. Additionally, he said, new federal banking compliance rules would have cost National Penn millions of dollars annually. The merger is expected to close by mid-2016. BB&T seeks to achieve cost savings of about 30 percent of National Penn's non-interest expenses, totaling $65 million. As a result, job cuts are expected.[4]

The failure of Penn Square Bank of Oklahoma City had a devastating effect on the U.S. banking system when the bank was declared insolvent on July 5, 1982. The ill-fated financial institution started in 1960 in a shopping mall. Penn Square Bank had a drive-up window to make transactions more convenient for suburban housewives with children to manage. In 1975 William Paul "Bill" Jennings purchased the bank and began to finance oil exploration and drilling. The bank made loans and then sold shares in the loans to other banks. As payments came in, Penn Square charged a fee to divide up the funds among the banks according to their share or "participation." This allowed Penn to originate over $2 billion worth of these investments.

By the late 1970s the federal Office of the Comptroller of the Currency's examinations indicated that Penn Square Bank was overextended. When oil prices dropped in 1981, the situation quickly turned desperate. Depositors withdrew $50 million in May 1982, and by July examiners knew the bank could not survive. They spent the Fourth of July weekend setting up the closure of Penn Square and forming a new bank so that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) could pay the $207 million that was due to insured depositors. Uninsured deposits of $163 million were not paid.

The oil loan shares caused problems for numerous other banks and precipitated a crisis in the entire banking system. Seattle First National Bank (Seafirst) in Washington was one of the first failures to result from losses on the participations. Soon after, Continental Illinois National Bank and Trust Company in Chicago, which had participated in the loans in the amount of almost $1 billion, became the largest bank failure in U.S. history up to that time, and the first bank to be actually acquired and operated as a federal government enterprise. Penn Square Bank's failure resulted in the revision of Oklahoma's banking laws and tighter regulatory control on the nation's banks through the passage of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991.
