ACTION: Public notice. SUMMARY: The NCUA Board has determined to change the methodology by which NCUA’s Central Liquidity Facility (CLF) provides funding to credit unions needing loans. The CLF makes loans available to credit unions through the corporate credit union network, which is also involved in the servicing of the loans. The changes require modification to an existing agreement between the CLF and U.S. Central Federal Credit Union (USC) and a new assignment agreement between USC and the CLF. These changes will affect loans already funded and the way future advances by the CLF are administered. In accordance with the current NCUA rule pertaining to the CLF, NCUA is publishing notice of the changes in the Federal Register. DATES: Effective Date: This notice is effective immediately. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeremy F. Taylor, Senior Capital Markets Specialist, at the above address or telephone (703) 518–6620 or Ross P. Kendall, Staff Attorney, Office of General Counsel, at the above address or telephone: (703) 518–6540. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background. The CLF is a mixedownership government corporation within the NCUA. It is managed by the NCUA Board and is owned by its VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:30 Jan 27, 2009 Jkt 217001 member credit unions. The CLF’s purpose is to improve the general stability of credit unions by meeting their liquidity needs. The CLF has in place form documents that reflect the repayment, security, and credit reporting terms applicable to all CLF loans. The CLF makes loan disbursements through the corporate credit union network and relies on members of the corporate network to service loans it has made. USC is a second tier corporate credit union providing wholesale services to other corporate credit unions and plays a unique role in connection with credit provided by the CLF. The CLF relies on USC to serve as representative for all corporate credit unions and uses USC as the conduit by which funding for loans to natural person credit unions is provided. Loan proceeds pass through USC and go to the corporate credit union in which the end recipient of the funds is a member, to which the funds are ultimately disbursed. Loan documents, including the promissory note and collateral documents, are signed at each level, such that the natural person credit union borrower is indebted to its corporate, which is in turn indebted to USC, which in turn is obligated to repay the advance to the CLF. Corporate credit unions and USC book the obligations to them as assets. There are corresponding liabilities at each level as well, reflecting the obligation to repay the CLF. B. Changes. At present, loan documents evidencing the indebtedness of natural person credit unions to the CLF are held by their respective corporate credit unions and booked as assets. Credit unions measure net worth as a function of retained earnings divided by assets, so any unusual increase on the asset side of the balance sheet can have a negative impact on net worth, at least until the assets can provide a meaningful contribution to earnings. Accordingly, the NCUA Board has elected to collapse the lending relationship so that the indebtedness of the natural person credit union to the CLF runs directly to it, rather than through the retail and wholesale corporate credit union levels. Because a substantial increase in lending from the CLF may be anticipated in the near term, the Board believes it prudent to modify the lending methodology and loan documentation with respect to future advances. Restructuring the lending relationship is consistent with the Congressional intent that corporate credit unions serve as agent members for the CLF. 12 U.S.C. 1795c(b). All resulting changes in corporate credit union accounting for PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4983 their role in these transactions will be accomplished in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Accordingly, the Board intends to change this process, both with respect to loans already funded and for loans to be made in the future. Although CLF still intends to fund loans through the corporate system, and still intends that the appropriate corporate will service the loans made to its natural person credit union members, going forward CLF will hold all loan interests itself and will not look to either USC or the appropriate corporate credit union as guarantors or obligors in respect of the loans. Similarly, USC will not book a loan owed by the corporate to it in the transaction, nor will the corporate book a loan owed by the natural person credit union to it. Rather, the debt will be booked exclusively by the CLF as its asset. As noted above, the CLF will continue to rely on USC as master servicer for all loans, and USC will continue to look to the appropriate corporate to service loans owed by its natural person credit union members. In connection with this change, CLF will require each corporate acting as loan servicer to subordinate any claims it might have in the collateral owned by natural person credit unions that may have been pledged to secure an advance from the corporate. The CLF may only fund advances on a fully secured basis. 12 CFR 725.19. Since a primary result of the changes discussed in this Notice will be that USC and the corporates will no longer act as guarantor of loans made to natural person credit unions, the subordination is necessary to assure the advances from the CLF comply with the collateral requirements in the rule. The CLF intends that all new loans funded after January 30, 2009, will be handled in accordance with the new procedures. C. Documents. The agreements by which the changes described herein are accomplished take the form of an Assignment Agreement between the CLF and USC, by which existing loans are assigned without recourse by USC to the CLF, along with an amendment to the Repayment, Security and Credit Reporting Agreement between CLF and USC, dated September 13, 1982, which will implement the changes for loans made after January 30, 2009. The Board is publishing both of these agreements, as contemplated by § 725.21 of the CLF rule. 12 CFR 725.21. The agreements are E:\FR\FM\28JAN1.SGM 28JAN1
