Federal regulators helped arrange the purchase for Washington Mutual after a weeklong sales process led by the investment bank Goldman Sachs among several big banks and private equity firms failed to reel in an interested bidder. Several bidders attracted by WaMu’s vast deposit base had emerged, including Citigroup and Wells Fargo. So did several foreign buyers, including Banco Santander of Spain, HSBC of Britain, and TD Dominion of Canada. But they worried that deepening losses, which could reach an estimated $30 billion, would make it difficult for them to absorb the troubled bank. To make matters worse, a $700 billion emergency bailout package for the financial system that was subject to Congressional wrangling caused some prospective buyers to stop in their tracks while the situation was in flux.
