In 1992, Due to Legge Amato, the statutory corporation was split into a "company limited by shares" Cassa di Risparmio della Provincia di Chieti S.p.A. (in short Carichieti S.p.A.), and a banking foundation Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio della Provincia di Chieti ("Fondazione Chieti" in short). The foundation was the owner of Carichieti S.p.A. for 80%, with Cariplo owned 20%. Cariplo also owned 20% shares of Abruzzo savings banks Caripe and Tercas.
Intesa Sanpaolo, as the successor of Cariplo, still owned a minority interests in the bank until 2014 bankruptcy.
The company was under special administration (A.S.) from 2014. The last annual report of the bank, shown the bank had a shareholders' equity of €200 million and a Tier 1 capital ratio of 8.80% as at 31 December 2013. The administrator from the Bank of Italy had made asset quality review, forcing the bank to make more provision to their non-performing loans.
In 2015 one of the two Italian deposit guarantee fund Fondo Interbancario di Tutela dei Depositi (which most of the banks except BCC banking group belongs to) had planned to bail-out CariChieti and 3 other banks that were also under A.S., but they were bail-out by Italian National Resolution Fund instead, for a recapitalisation of €2 billion (€141 million for CariChieti). European Commission ruled that the bail out of Banca Tercas by FITD in 2014 was a state aid, while new Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive of EU required to bail-in some investors of the bank before any state intervention.
The Italian National Resolution Fund had also injected a combined €1.7 billion to Banca Marche, Banca Etruria, Carife, and CariChieti to cover the losses. After forming the good bank and the bank bank, the old bank would be liquidated, which the shareholders and subordinated bond holders of the old bank would receive nothing due to bail-in. After the bail-in, the banking foundation had a net assets of just €11 million (decreased from €89 million) at 31 December 2015, due to the total write-off of the value of the shares of the old bank.
On 3 May 2016, Decree-Law N°59/2016 was announced, which the retail investors of the bond of the 4 banks would be refunded (up to €100,000, same as deposit insurance) if they purchased the bond on or before 12 June 2014, the date of Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive was passed. The decree-law was a response to criticism of the bail-in of all junior investor of the bank, which Italian bank often sold risky bond of themselves to their depositors. The refund scheme: Fondo di solidarietà, would be managed by FITD.
