OTS Puts WaMu into Recievership; JPM Buys Assets

Thursday, September 25, 2008 | 10:47 PM

WaMu is now toast, forced into the waiting arms of JPM.

Here are the specifics from the Office of Thrift Supervision:

Receivership - With insufficient liquidity to meet its obligations, WMB was in an unsafe and unsound condition to transact business.  OTS placed WMB into receivership on September 25, 2008.  WMB was acquired today by JPMorgan Chase.  The change will have no impact on the bank’s depositors or other customers. Business will proceed uninterrupted and bank branches will open on Friday morning as usual.
