WASHINGTON - Banks hit with regulatory enforcement actions are 2#1/2 times as likely as a typical bank to go out of business, according to Veribanc Inc., Wakefield, Mass.

Since early 1991, when regulators began publicly disclosing enforcement actions, 2,480 institutions have received 4,521 sanctions. Banks accounted for 2,956, or 65% of that total. These figures are for enforcement measures doled out through October 1994.
