SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Purpose and Procedures The purpose of the public meetings is to collect information relating to the factors the Board is required to consider under the BHC Act. The Board is required to consider whether the notificant’s performance of the activities can reasonably be expected to produce benefits to the public (such as greater convenience, increased competition, and gains in efficiency) that outweigh possible adverse effects (such as undue concentration of resources, decreased or unfair competition, conflicts of interests, unsound banking practices, and risk to the stability of the United States banking or financial system). Consideration of the above factors includes an evaluation of the financial and managerial resources of the notificant, including its subsidiaries, and any company to be acquired; the effect of the proposed transaction on those resources; and the management expertise, internal control and riskmanagement systems, and capital of the entity conducting the activity. In acting on a notice to acquire a savings association, the Board also reviews the records of performance of the insured depository institutions involved in the proposal under the Community Reinvestment Act, which requires the Board to take into account a relevant institution’s record of meeting the credit needs of its entire community, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods, consistent with the safe and sound operation of the institution, VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:37 Sep 01, 2011 Jkt 223001 in evaluating such an acquisition proposal. 12 U.S.C. 2903.
