For example, the 2009 reporting panel will therefore be determined by outstanding notional values as well as by data previously reported on Form D. If a reporter’s outstanding notional values are below $400 billion, the reporter must continue to file the TIC D report if the Grand Total Net Settlements (Part 1, Column 3, Row 7) exceeded $400 million in any quarter during the preceding two calendar years; and (e) these changes will be effective beginning with the reports as of March 31, 2009.
