The Georgia Department of Banking & Finance declared Darby Bank & Trust Co., headquartered in Vidalia, and Tifton Banking Company in Tifton closed today and appointed the FDIC as receiver for both financial institutions. The FDIC entered into a loss-share transaction and sold the assets and deposit liabilities of Darby Bank & Trust Co. and Tifton Banking Company to Ameris Bank.

Darby Bank & Trust Co. and Tifton Banking Company depositors will automatically become depositors of Ameris Bank, and deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC, (up to FDIC maximum). With these acquisitions, Ameris Bank will now operate 60 locations in Georgia, Florida, Alabama and South Carolina.

Edwin W. Hortman, Jr., President & CEO commented, "We are appreciative of the opportunity to welcome customers and employees of both Darby Bank & Trust Co. and Tifton Banking Company to the Ameris Bank family. Customers can be confident that their deposits are safe and readily accessible. Ameris Bank has supported the financial needs of local communities since 1971. It is exciting to gain new locations in and near established offices that will further complement our existing presence in these markets."

Approximately $144.6 million in total deposits and $118.9 million in total loans will be assumed as a result of the Tifton Banking Company acquisition.
