Mutual of Omaha Bank, part of Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company, Omaha, Neb., says it has taken over all of Marco Community Bank’s deposits and loans.

The assumed obligations include those that exceed the FDIC insurance limit, Mutual of Omaha Bank says.

Mutual of Omaha Bank has assumed about $120 million in assets and about $117 million in deposits.

No depositor lost money as a result of the failure, according to Mutual of Omaha Bank.
