[FR Doc. 08–681 Filed 2–14–08; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6690–01–M FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION Statement of Policy on Bank Merger Transactions Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (‘‘FDIC’’). ACTION: Amendment of statement of policy. AGENCY: provisions of this law amended statutes that the FDIC administers. One of those statutes is the Bank Merger Act.1 In addition, the Federal Deposit Insurance Reform Act of 2005 (‘‘FDIRA’’) 2 consolidated the SAIF and the BIF into the Deposit Insurance Fund. As a result, the FDIC is amending its Statement of Policy 3 to conform it to the Bank Merger Act, as amended by FSRRA, and to the changes made by FDIRA. The FDIC is not seeking comment on the amendments that it is making to the Statement of Policy, and the amendments are effective upon publication in the Federal Register. II. FSRRA Amendments to the Bank Merger Act SUMMARY: The FDIC is amending its Statement of Policy on Bank Merger Transactions (‘‘Statement of Policy’’) in order to conform it to the Bank Merger Act, as amended by the Financial Services Regulatory Relief Act of 2006 (‘‘FSRRA’’). The FSRRA (i) eliminated the need for the FDIC to obtain a competitive factors report from the other three Federal banking agencies in processing a merger application and (ii) eliminated both the post-approval waiting period and the need to obtain any competitive factors reports, when the merger solely involves an insured depository institution and one or more affiliates. In addition, the FDIC is amending its Statement of Policy in order to remove any discussion of ‘‘Oakar Transactions’’ since the Federal Deposit Insurance Reform Act of 2005 consolidated the former Savings Association Insurance Fund (‘‘SAIF’’) and the former Bank Insurance Fund (‘‘BIF’’) into the Deposit Insurance Fund. Finally, the FDIC is amending its Statement of Policy in order to conform the description of the factors to be considered in evaluating a merger more closely to the language of the Bank Merger Act, and for other technical reasons. DATES: February 15, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brett A. McCallister, Review Examiner (816) 234–8099 x4223, in the Division of Supervision and Consumer Protection; Julia E. Paris, Senior Attorney (202) 898–3821 or Robert C. Fick, Counsel, (202) 898–8962, in the Legal Division. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Section 606 of FSRRA Four Federal banking agencies must utilize the Bank Merger Act to approve merger transactions subject to their respective jurisdiction; those agencies are the FDIC, the Federal Reserve Board (‘‘FRB’’), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (‘‘OCC’’), and the Office of Thrift Supervision (‘‘OTS’’). Prior to FSRRA, the Federal banking agency responsible for processing a particular merger application had to request and obtain a competitive factors report from each of the other three Federal banking agencies. Section 606 of FSRRA amended section 18(c)(4) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (‘‘FDI Act’’), 12 U.S.C. 1828(c)(4), to eliminate that requirement. Section 606 did not, however, eliminate the requirement that the responsible agency obtain a competitive factors report from the Attorney General of the United States; that requirement remains unchanged. In addition, section 606 also added the requirement that in processing a merger application, the FRB, the OCC, or the OTS, as the case may be, must submit a copy of each request for a competitive factors report to the FDIC. Section 606 also made two changes to the Bank Merger Act that apply to mergers that solely involve an insured depository institution and one or more affiliates (‘‘Affiliate Mergers’’). First, for Affiliate Mergers, section 606 amended section 18(c)(4) of the FDI Act, 12 U.S.C. 1828(c)(4), to eliminate the need for the responsible Federal banking agency to request competitive factors reports from either the other Federal banking agencies or the Attorney General of the I. Background On October 13, 2006, the President signed into law the FSRRA, Public Law No. 109–351. The stated purpose of the law is to reduce regulatory burden and improve productivity for insured depository institutions. Many of the 1 Section 18(c) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, 12 U.S.C. 1828(c). 2 Pub. L. 109–171, 120 Stat. 9 (Feb. 8, 2006). 3 The FDIC’s Statement of Policy on Bank Merger Transactions was published in the Federal Register at 63 FR 44761 on August 20, 1998; subsequent amendments were published at 67 FR 48178 on July 23, 2002 and at 67 FR 79278 on December 27, 2002.
