The U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), concerned about the pace of branch building in Texas, is warning banks with expansion plans there that it could take longer than they expect for new branches to become profitable. More bank and thrift branches popped up in Texas than in any other state last year, and a number of companies, including Wachovia Corp., Bank of America Corp., and Regions Financial Corp., plan to build hundreds more in the next few years. In its spring 2004 Regional Outlook report, the FDIC stopped short of advising banks to curtail their expansion in Texas.
