    Gendell closes hedge funds

    This is from their 10Q:

    "Regulatory Developments. As a result of operating losses which were reported during the previous four quarterly periods during the current economic downturn, the Company is subject to certain limitations imposed by the Office of Thrift Supervision ("OTS"). We are restricted from: (1) paying dividends, (2) repurchasing common stock, and (3) making any payments on trust preferred securities without the prior written notice of non-objection of the OTS. To support our capital position during the current period of market volatility, the Bank currently has no requests pending before the OTS to pay dividends or repurchase stock. The Company has also agreed with the OTS to contribute additional capital above levels required for the Bank to be deemed "well-capitalized" for regulatory purposes. The Company has contributed $19.1 million to the Bank during the first nine months of 2008 and subsequent to September 30, 2008, contributed an additional $10.0 million to the Bank. The Bank is required to maintain a ratio of 11.0% (as opposed to 10.0%) with respect to total risk-based capital to risk-weighted assets and a ratio of 8.5% (as opposed to 6.0%) with respect to Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets. As of September 30, 2008, the Bank exceeded these elevated ratios before the subsequent $10.0 million capital contribution."

    That covers share buy backs and dividend questions. Not very promising at all.
