Bailout repayments could reach $58 billion as banks raise fresh capital


Now that regulators have completed their examination of financial institutions' balance sheets, the banks that received passing grades are working furiously to return the capital infusions they received from the Treasury Department's $700 billion bailout fund last fall.

Nine financial institutions -- American Express (AXP), Bank of New York Mellon (BK), BB&T (BBT), Capital One (COF), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), MetLife (MET), State Street (STT) and US Bancorp (USB) -- were found not to need additional capital in the so-called stress tests. All of them except MetLife received investments from the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP. If they succeed in repaying that money, which they all say they plan to do as soon as possible, the Treasury will recoup about $56.8 billion.
