Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Farm Credit Administration (FCA, we, us, or our) issues this final rule to establish a VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:03 May 24, 2013 Jkt 229001 regulatory framework for Farm Credit System (System) institutions’ use of unincorporated business entities (UBEs) organized under State law for certain business activities. A UBE includes limited partnerships (LPs), limited liability partnerships (LLPs), limited liability limited partnerships (LLLPs), limited liability companies (LLCs), and any other unincorporated business entities, such as unincorporated business trusts, organized under State law. The final rule does not apply to UBEs that one or more System institutions may establish as Rural Business Investment Companies (RBICs) pursuant to the institutions’ authority under the provisions of title VI of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, as amended (FSRIA), and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulations implementing FSRIA. This rule does apply, however, to System institutions that organize UBEs for the express purpose of investing in RBICs. DATES: This regulation will be effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register during which either or both Houses of Congress are in session. We will publish a notice of the effective date in the Federal Register. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elna Luopa, Senior Corporate Analyst, Office of Regulatory Policy, Farm Credit Administration, McLean, VA 22102– 5090, (703) 883–4414, TTY (703) 883– 4056, or Wendy Laguarda, Assistant General Counsel, Office of General Counsel, Farm Credit Administration, McLean, VA 22102–5090, (703) 883– 4020, TTY (703) 883–4056. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Objectives The objectives of this final rule are to: • Affirm FCA’s authority to regulate and examine the System institutions’ use of UBEs, including the authority to impose any conditions FCA deems necessary and appropriate on UBE business activity, and to take enforcement action against System institutions whose business operations use UBEs; • Prohibit System institutions from using UBEs to engage in direct lending or any activity that exceeds their authority under the Farm Credit Act of 1971, as amended (Act) or circumvents the application of cooperative principles; • Limit the amount of a System institution’s equity investments in UBEs; • Create a process for FCA review and approval of requests by System PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 institutions to organize or invest in UBEs for certain business activity; • Establish standards for the proper and adequate disclosure and reporting of System UBE activity; and • Ensure that the System’s use of UBEs remains transparent and free from conflicts of interest. II. Background The System’s existing investment 1 and incidental powers 2 provide the authorities for System institutions to invest in and form UBEs for certain business activity. As business models and structures have evolved under State uniform statutes governing unincorporated, largely limited liability business structures, System institutions, with FCA approval, have been using their incidental and investment authorities to organize and invest in State-chartered UBEs to promote collaborative and expedient initiatives. Since 2009, System institutions have been organizing UBEs for the limited purposes of: (1) Making credit bids at a foreclosure sale or other court-approved auction of property collateralizing a System institution’s loans that are in default; and (2) holding and managing acquired property to minimize losses, protect the property’s value, and limit potential liability, including taking appropriate actions to limit the potential for liability under applicable environmental law and regulations.3 On a case-by-case basis, FCA has approved the System’s use of other types of UBEs for certain business purposes. In view of the many advantages of UBEs for certain business activity, on September 13, 2012, FCA published a proposed rule to establish a regulatory framework for their continued use. The proposed rule, which was published for public comment for 60 days, generated nine comment letters from the public. After considering the comments, we now finalize the proposed provisions as discussed below. We note that because this final rule codifies the guidance contained in FCA Bookletter BL–057, 1 Sections 1.5(15) and 3.1(13)(A) of the Act set forth the investment authorities for System banks. Sections 2.2(10) and 2.12(18) of the Act set forth the investment authorities for System associations. FCA regulations in subpart E of part 615 imbue service corporations, chartered under section 4.25 of the Act, with the same investment authorities as their organizing System banks and associations. 2 Sections 1.5(3), (15) and (21); 2.2(3), (10) and (20); 2.12(3), (18) and (19); 3.1(3) and (16) of the Act. 3 FCA Bookletter BL–057, Use of State-Chartered Business Entities to Hold Acquired Property (April 2, 2009).
