Proposal to Approve Under OMB Delegated Authority the Extension for Three Years, With Revision, of the Following Report Report title: Savings Association Holding Company Report. Agency form number: FR H–(b)11. OMB control number: 7100–0334. Frequency: Quarterly, event-driven, and annually. Reporters: Savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs). Estimated annual reporting hours: 264. Estimated average hours per response: 2.0 hours. Number of respondents: 33. General description of report: This information collection is mandatory (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2)(A)). The FR H-(b)11 covers 6 different items. However, the Federal Reserve has determined that supplemental information in response to a yes answer for the Quarterly Savings and Loan Holding Company Report (FR 2320; OMB No. 7100–0345) FR 2320’s questions 24, 25, and 26 may be protected from disclosure under exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which covers ‘‘trade secrets and commercial or financial information obtained from a person [that is] privileged or confidential’’ (5 U.S.C. 522(b)(4)). Disclosure of this type of information is likely to cause substantial competitive harm to the SLHC providing the information and thus this information is protected from disclosure under FOIA exemption 4 (5 U.S.C. 522(b)(4)). With regard to the supplemental information for other FR 2320 questions that would be provided in item 3 of the FR H–(b)11, as well as all other items of the FR H–(b)11, respondents may request confidential treatment of such information under one or more of the exemptions in the FOIA. All such requests for confidential treatment will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and in response to a specific request for disclosure. Abstract: Currently all SLHCs must file the FR H-(b)11. However, the majority of SLHCs file other Federal Reserve regulatory reports such as the VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:00 Jul 26, 2013 Jkt 229001 Financial Statements for Holding Companies (FR Y–9C; OMB No. 7100– 0128) or the Parent Only Financial Statements for Small Holding Companies (FR Y–9SP; OMB No. 7100– 0128); therefore, the FR H-(b)11 is no longer needed from these SLHCs for supervision purposes. The Federal Reserve proposes to revise the current FR H-(b)11 respondent panel to include only exempt SLHCs.1 The FR H-(b)11 report provides consolidated financial statements that show detailed information by business unit. These consolidated statements provide information about the individual entities and the eliminating entries that tie into the consolidated statements. These types of financial statements are particularly useful for larger complex companies with multiple entities. A number of the large insurance savings and loan holding companies (ISLHCs) are private and do not file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, therefore, the level of detail that would be provided in those filings is not available (also information on company Web sites provide very limited insight). Additionally, the ‘‘Other Materially Important Events’’ section of the FR H(b)11 informs the Federal Reserve of material litigation or other contingent liabilities, key management changes, unexpected economic events, and other information that may be of material importance. This information is particularly useful in assisting with offsite reviews. In contrast, the Federal Reserve believes that the FR 2320 data provides limited detail on its own for Federal Reserve off-site surveillance and preexamination planning and its use would be augmented by the continued collection of the FR H-(b)11. Most ISLHCs only provide parent company data. These ISLHCs are generally quite large and privately held; therefore, the data collected on the FR 2320 is limited in scope and is not conducive to consolidated supervision. Additionally, as part of the Annual Report of Holding Companies (FR Y–6; OMB No. 7100– 0297), the Federal Reserve requires that top-tier holding companies with total consolidated assets of $500 million or more must have an annual audit of its consolidated financial statements by an independent public accountant. 1 An exempted SLHC includes (1) a grandfathered unitary SLHC whose assets are primarily commercial and whose thrifts make up less than 5 percent of its consolidated assets; and (2) a SLHC whose assets are primarily insurance-related and who does not otherwise submit financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. (76 FR 81933). PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 45535 However, the FR Y–6 does not require detailed quarterly financial statements which give a more timely representation of the financial condition of a company. In addition, the Federal Reserve proposes to remove the docket number from the FR H–(b)11 reporting form and all references to the docket number in the instructions. The docket number is no longer used as the SLHC identifier. The RSSD number is now the universal identifier used by all the regulatory agencies. Finally, the continued reporting of the FR H–(b)11 report by exempt SLHCs would assist the Federal Reserve in the evaluation of a diversified holding company and in determining whether an institution is in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

Proposal to Approve Under OMB Delegated Authority the Extension for 
Three Years, With Revision, of the Following Report

    Report title: Savings Association Holding Company Report.
    Agency form number: FR H-(b)11.
    OMB control number: 7100-0334.
    Frequency: Quarterly, event-driven, and annually.
    Reporters: Savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs).
    Estimated annual reporting hours: 264.
    Estimated average hours per response: 2.0 hours.
    Number of respondents: 33.
    General description of report: This information collection is 
mandatory (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2)(A)). The FR H-(b)11 covers 6 different 
items. However, the Federal Reserve has determined that supplemental 
information in response to a yes answer for the Quarterly Savings and 
Loan Holding Company Report (FR 2320; OMB No. 7100-0345) FR 2320's 
questions 24, 25, and 26 may be protected from disclosure under 
exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which covers 
``trade secrets and commercial or financial information obtained from a 
person [that is] privileged or confidential'' (5 U.S.C. 522(b)(4)). 
Disclosure of this type of information is likely to cause substantial 
competitive harm to the SLHC providing the information and thus this 
information is protected from disclosure under FOIA exemption 4 (5 
U.S.C. 522(b)(4)).
    With regard to the supplemental information for other FR 2320 
questions that would be provided in item 3 of the FR H-(b)11, as well 
as all other items of the FR H-(b)11, respondents may request 
confidential treatment of such information under one or more of the 
exemptions in the FOIA. All such requests for confidential treatment 
will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and in response to a specific 
request for disclosure.
    Abstract: Currently all SLHCs must file the FR H-(b)11. However, 
the majority of SLHCs file other Federal Reserve regulatory reports 
such as the Financial Statements for Holding Companies (FR Y-9C; OMB 
No. 7100-0128) or the Parent Only Financial Statements for Small 
Holding Companies (FR Y-9SP; OMB No. 7100-0128); therefore, the FR H-
(b)11 is no longer needed from these SLHCs for supervision purposes. 
The Federal Reserve proposes to revise the current FR H-(b)11 
respondent panel to include only exempt SLHCs.\1\ The FR H-(b)11 report 
provides consolidated financial statements that show detailed 
information by business unit. These consolidated statements provide 
information about the individual entities and the eliminating entries 
that tie into the consolidated statements. These types of financial 
statements are particularly useful for larger complex companies with 
multiple entities. A number of the large insurance savings and loan 
holding companies (ISLHCs) are private and do not file with the 
Securities and Exchange Commission, therefore, the level of detail that 
would be provided in those filings is not available (also information 
on company Web sites provide very limited insight). Additionally, the 
``Other Materially Important Events'' section of the FR H-(b)11 informs 
the Federal Reserve of material litigation or other contingent 
liabilities, key management changes, unexpected economic events, and 
other information that may be of material importance. This information 
is particularly useful in assisting with off-site reviews.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ An exempted SLHC includes (1) a grandfathered unitary SLHC 
whose assets are primarily commercial and whose thrifts make up less 
than 5 percent of its consolidated assets; and (2) a SLHC whose 
assets are primarily insurance-related and who does not otherwise 
submit financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission 
pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 
1934. (76 FR 81933).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In contrast, the Federal Reserve believes that the FR 2320 data 
provides limited detail on its own for Federal Reserve off-site 
surveillance and pre-examination planning and its use would be 
augmented by the continued collection of the FR H-(b)11. Most ISLHCs 
only provide parent company data. These ISLHCs are generally quite 
large and privately held; therefore, the data collected on the FR 2320 
is limited in scope and is not conducive to consolidated supervision. 
Additionally, as part of the Annual Report of Holding Companies (FR Y-
6; OMB No. 7100-0297), the Federal Reserve requires that top-tier 
holding companies with total consolidated assets of $500 million or 
more must have an annual audit of its consolidated financial statements 
by an independent public accountant. However, the FR Y-6 does not 
require detailed quarterly financial statements which give a more 
timely representation of the financial condition of a company.
    In addition, the Federal Reserve proposes to remove the docket 
number from the FR H-(b)11 reporting form and all references to the 
docket number in the instructions. The docket number is no longer used 
as the SLHC identifier. The RSSD number is now the universal identifier 
used by all the regulatory agencies.
    Finally, the continued reporting of the FR H-(b)11 report by exempt 
SLHCs would assist the Federal Reserve in the evaluation of a 
diversified holding company and in determining whether an institution 
is in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
