SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OCC is requesting comment on the following new proposed information collection: Title: Company-Run Annual Stress Test Reporting Template and Documentation for Covered Institutions with Total Consolidated Assets of $10 Billion to $50 Billion under the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. OMB Control No.: 1557–0311. Description: Section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act 1 (Dodd-Frank Act) requires certain financial companies, including national banks and Federal savings associations, to conduct annual stress tests 2 and requires the primary financial regulatory agency 3 of those financial companies to issue regulations implementing the stress test requirements.4 A national bank or Federal savings association is a ‘‘covered institution,’’ and therefore subject to the stress test requirements if its total consolidated assets exceed $10 billion. Under section 165(i)(2), a covered institution is required to submit to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) and to its 1 Public Law 111–203, 124 Stat. 1376, July 2010.

These information collections will be given confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). The OCC intends to use the data collected through this proposal to assess the reasonableness of the stress test results of covered institutions and to provide forward-looking information to the OCC regarding a covered institution’s capital adequacy. The OCC also may use the results of the stress tests to determine whether additional analytical techniques and exercises could be appropriate to identify, measure, and monitor risks at the covered institution. The stress test results are expected to support ongoing improvement in a covered institution’s stress testing practices with respect to its internal assessments of capital adequacy and overall capital planning. The Dodd-Frank Act stress testing requirements apply to all covered institutions, but the OCC recognizes that many covered institutions with consolidated total assets of $50 billion or more have been subject to existing stress testing requirements under the Board’s Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR). The OCC also recognizes that these institutions’ stress tests will be applied to more complex portfolios and therefore warrant a broader set of reports to adequately capture the results of the company-run stress tests. These reports necessarily will require more detail than would be appropriate for smaller, less complex institutions. Therefore, the OCC has decided to specify separate reporting templates for covered institutions with total consolidated assets between $10 and $50 billion and for covered institutions with total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more.7 5 12 U.S.C. 5365(i)(2)(B). FR 61238, October 9, 2012. 7 See 77 FR 49485 for the Paperwork Reduction Act Notice and the OCC Web site at http://occ.gov/ news-issuances/news-releases/2012/nr-occ-2012121.html for the reporting templates for covered institutions with total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more. 6 77 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 Mar 08, 2013 Jkt 229001 While the general reporting categories are the same (income statement, balance sheet and capital), the level of granularity for individual reporting items is less for $10 to $50 billion institutions. For example, accounting for provisions by category is not required, and less detail is required for commercial and industrial lending. Because smaller banks with assets of $10 to $50 billion generally have less complex balance sheets, the OCC believes that highly detailed reporting is not warranted, and so the OCC is not requiring supplemental schedules on such areas as retail balances, securities and trading, operational risk, and preprovision net revenue (PPNR). However, where a covered institution with assets less than $50 billion is affiliated with an organization with assets of $50 billion or more, the OCC reserves the authority to require the smaller covered institution to use the reporting template for larger institutions. The OCC has worked closely with the Board and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to make the agencies’ respective rules implementing the annual stress testing requirements under the Dodd-Frank Act consistent and comparable by requiring similar standards for scope of application, scenarios, data collection and reporting forms. The OCC also has worked to minimize any potential duplication of effort related to the annual stress test requirements. The reporting templates for institutions with assets of $10 to $50 billion are described below. Description of Reporting Results Templates for Institutions With $10 Billion to $50 Billion in Assets The ‘‘Dodd-Frank Annual Stress Test Reporting Results Template for Covered Institutions with Total Consolidated Assets Between $10 and $50 Billion’’ ($10–$50B results template) includes data collection worksheets necessary for the OCC to assess the company-run stress test results for baseline, adverse and severely adverse scenarios as well as any other scenario specified in accordance with regulations issued by the OCC. The $10–$50B results template includes worksheets that collect information on the following areas: 1. Income Statement; 2. Balance Sheet; and, 3. Capital. Each $10 to $50 billion covered institution reporting to the OCC using this form will be required to submit to the OCC worksheets for each scenario provided to covered institutions in accordance with regulations PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 implementing Section 165(i)(2) as specified by the OCC. Worksheets: Income Statement The income statement worksheet collects data for the quarter preceding the planning horizon and for each quarter of the planning horizon for the stress test on projected losses and revenues in the following categories: 1. Net charge-offs 2. Pre-provision net revenue 3. Provision for loan and lease losses 4. Realized gains (losses) on held to maturity (HTM) and available-forsale (AFS) securities 5. All other gains (losses) 6. Taxes Memoranda items: 7. Net gains and losses on sales of other real estate owned 8. Total other than temporary impairment (OTTI) losses This schedule provides information used to assess losses and revenues that covered institutions can sustain in baseline, adverse and severely adverse stress scenarios. Worksheets: Balance Sheet The balance sheet worksheet collects data for the quarter preceding the planning horizon and for each quarter of the planning horizon for the stress test on projected equity capital, as well as on assets and liabilities in the following categories: 1. Loans 2. HTM securities 3. AFS securities 4. Trading assets 5. Total intangible assets 6. Other real estate 7. All other assets Memoranda items: 8. Loans and leases guaranteed by other U.S. government or GSE guarantees (non-FDIC loss-sharing agreements) 9. Troubled debt restructurings 10. Loans secured by 1–4 family properties in foreclosure 11.

This worksheet will also be used to assess the revenue and loss projections identified in the income statement worksheet. Worksheets: Capital The capital worksheet, which is appended to the Balance Sheet, collects data for the quarter preceding the planning horizon and for each quarter of the planning horizon for the stress test on the following areas: 1. Unrealized gains (losses) on AFS securities 2. Disallowed deferred tax asset 3. Tier 1 common capital elements 4. Tier 1 capital 5. Tier 2 capital 6. Total risk-based capital 7. Total capital 8.

The OCC intends to use these worksheets to assess the impact on capital of the projected losses and projected changes in assets that the covered institution can sustain in a stressed scenario. In addition to reviewing the worksheet in the context of the balance sheet and income statement projections, the OCC also intends to use this worksheet in assessing capital plans and the capital planning processes for each covered institution. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Description of DFAST Scenario Variables Template To conduct the stress test required under this rule, a covered institution may need to project additional economic and financial variables to estimate losses or revenues for some or all of its portfolios.

The supporting documentation should be submitted electronically and is not expected to be reported in the workbooks used for required data reporting. This supporting documentation must describe the types of risks included in the stress test; describe clearly the methodology used to produce the stress test projections; describe the methods used to translate the macroeconomic factors into a covered institution’s projections; and also include an explanation of the most significant causes for the changes in regulatory capital ratios. The supporting documentation also should address the impact of anticipated corporate events, including mergers, acquisitions or divestitures of business lines or entities, and changes in strategic direction, and should describe how such changes are reflected in stress test results, including the impact on estimates of losses, expenses and revenues, net interest margins, non-interest income items, and balance sheet amounts. Where company-specific assumptions are made that differ from the broad macroeconomic assumptions incorporated in stress scenarios provided by the OCC, the documentation also must describe such assumptions and how those assumptions relate to reported projections. Where historical relationships are relied upon, the covered institutions must describe the historical data and provide the basis for the expectation that these relationships would be maintained in each scenario, particularly under adverse and severely adverse conditions.

The OCC also has worked to minimize any potential duplication of effort 
related to the annual stress test requirements. The reporting templates 
for institutions with assets of $10 to $50 billion are described below.

Description of Reporting Results Templates for Institutions With $10 
Billion to $50 Billion in Assets

    The ``Dodd-Frank Annual Stress Test Reporting Results Template for 
Covered Institutions with Total Consolidated Assets Between $10 and $50 
Billion'' ($10-$50B results template) includes data collection 
worksheets necessary for the OCC to assess the company-run stress test 
results for baseline, adverse and severely adverse scenarios as well as 
any other scenario specified in accordance with regulations issued by 
the OCC. The $10-$50B results template includes worksheets that collect 
information on the following areas:
1. Income Statement;
2. Balance Sheet; and,
3. Capital.
    Each $10 to $50 billion covered institution reporting to the OCC 
using this form will be required to submit to the OCC worksheets for 
each scenario provided to covered institutions in accordance with 
regulations implementing Section 165(i)(2) as specified by the OCC.

Worksheets: Income Statement

    The income statement worksheet collects data for the quarter 
preceding the planning horizon and for each quarter of the planning 
horizon for the stress test on projected losses and revenues in the 
following categories:

1. Net charge-offs
2. Pre-provision net revenue
3. Provision for loan and lease losses
4. Realized gains (losses) on held to maturity (HTM) and available-for-
sale (AFS) securities
5. All other gains (losses)
6. Taxes

    Memoranda items:
7. Net gains and losses on sales of other real estate owned
8. Total other than temporary impairment (OTTI) losses

    This schedule provides information used to assess losses and 
revenues that covered institutions can sustain in baseline, adverse and 
severely adverse stress scenarios.

Worksheets: Balance Sheet

    The balance sheet worksheet collects data for the quarter preceding 
the planning horizon and for each quarter of the planning horizon for 
the stress test on projected equity capital, as well as on assets and 
liabilities in the following categories:

1. Loans
2. HTM securities
3. AFS securities
4. Trading assets
5. Total intangible assets
6. Other real estate
7. All other assets

    Memoranda items:

8. Loans and leases guaranteed by other U.S. government or GSE 
guarantees (non-FDIC loss-sharing agreements)
9. Troubled debt restructurings
10. Loans secured by 1-4 family properties in foreclosure
11. Retail funding (core deposits)
12. Wholesale funding
13. Trading liabilities
14. All other liabilities
15. Perpetual preferred stock and related surplus
16. Common stock

18. Retained earnings
19. Other equity capital components
20. Memoranda items: Average rates for loans, securities, retail 
funding, wholesale funding, interest-bearing deposits, trading and 
other liabilities.

    The OCC intends to use this worksheet to assess the projected

changes in assets and liabilities that a covered institution can 
sustain in an adverse and severely adverse stress scenario. This 
worksheet will also be used to assess the revenue and loss projections 
identified in the income statement worksheet.

Worksheets: Capital

    The capital worksheet, which is appended to the Balance Sheet, 
collects data for the quarter preceding the planning horizon and for 
each quarter of the planning horizon for the stress test on the 
following areas:

1. Unrealized gains (losses) on AFS securities
2. Disallowed deferred tax asset
3. Tier 1 common capital elements
4. Tier 1 capital
5. Tier 2 capital
6. Total risk-based capital
7. Total capital
8. Risk-weighted assets
9. Total assets for leverage purposes
10. Tier 1 common equity ratio
11. Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio
12. Tier 1 leverage ratio
13. Total risk-based capital ratio

    Memoranda:

14. Sale, conversion, acquisition or retirement of capital stock
15. Cash dividends declared on preferred stock
16. Cash dividends declared on common stock

    Additionally, the Summary Schedule captures projections for 
regulatory capital ratios over the planning horizon by scenario.
    The OCC intends to use these worksheets to assess the impact on 
capital of the projected losses and projected changes in assets that 
the covered institution can sustain in a stressed scenario. In addition 
to reviewing the worksheet in the context of the balance sheet and 
income statement projections, the OCC also intends to use this 
worksheet in assessing capital plans and the capital planning processes 
for each covered institution.

Description of DFAST Scenario Variables Template

    To conduct the stress test required under this rule, a covered 
institution may need to project additional economic and financial 
variables to estimate losses or revenues for some or all of its 
portfolios. In such a case, the covered institution is required to 
complete the DFAST Scenario Variables worksheet for each scenario where 
such additional variables are used to conduct the stress test. Each 
scenario worksheet collects the variable name (matching that reported 
on the Scenario Variable Definitions worksheet), the actual value of 
the variable during the third quarter of the reporting year, and the 
projected value of the variable for nine future quarters.

Description of Supporting Documentation

    Covered institutions must submit clear documentation in support of 
the projections included in the worksheets to support efficient and 
timely review of annual stress test results by the OCC. The supporting 
documentation should be submitted electronically and is not expected to 
be reported in the workbooks used for required data reporting. This 
supporting documentation must describe the types of risks included in 
the stress test; describe clearly the methodology used to produce the 
stress test projections; describe the methods used to translate the 
macroeconomic factors into a covered institution's projections; and 
also include an explanation of the most significant causes for the 
changes in regulatory capital ratios. The supporting documentation also 
should address the impact of anticipated corporate events, including 
mergers, acquisitions or divestitures of business lines or entities, 
and changes in strategic direction, and should describe how such 
changes are reflected in stress test results, including the impact on 
estimates of losses, expenses and revenues, net interest margins, non-
interest income items, and balance sheet amounts.
    Where company-specific assumptions are made that differ from the 
broad macroeconomic assumptions incorporated in stress scenarios 
provided by the OCC, the documentation also must describe such 
assumptions and how those assumptions relate to reported projections. 
Where historical relationships are relied upon, the covered 
institutions must describe the historical data and provide the basis 
for the expectation that these relationships would be maintained in 
each scenario, particularly under adverse and severely adverse 
conditions.
    Type of Review: Revision to an existing collection.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 26.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 12,064 hours.
    The burden for each $10 to $50 billion covered institution that 
completes the $10-$50B results template is estimated to be 440 hours 
for a total of 11,440 hours. This burden includes 20 hours to input 
these data and 420 hours for work related to modeling efforts. The 
estimated burden for each $10 to $50 billion covered institution that 
completes the annual DFAST Scenarios Variables Template is estimated to 
be 24 hours for a total of 624 hours. Start up costs for new 
respondents are estimated to be 93,600 hours and ongoing revisions for 
existing firms, 4,160 hours.
    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized 
and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become 
a matter of public record. Comments are invited on:
    (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the 
proper performance of the functions of the OCC, including whether the 
information has practical utility;
    (b) The accuracy of the OCC's estimate of the burden of the 
collection of information;
    (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected;
    (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology; and,
    (e) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, 
maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
