The Real Deal Miami

BankUnited fate unclear

May 05, 2009 11:31AM

The shareholder meeting of Coral Gables-based BankUnited was put on hold until May 22 as the future of the limping bank takes shape. Thomas Tew, a Miami attorney for the company who chaired the meeting at the Hyatt Regency Coral Gables, said it would be inappropriate to answer ad hoc questions on the finances of the company and didn’t take shareholder questions. Federal regulators have given the bank until May 14 to find a buyer or add to its capital.
