Download as PDF 1862 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 7 / Friday, January 10, 2014 / Notices Notice I. Statutory and Regulatory Background The Federal Home Loan Bank Act (Bank Act) confers upon insured depository institutions that meet the statutory definition of a ‘‘Community Financial Institution’’ (CFI) certain advantages over non-CFI insured depository institutions in qualifying for Federal Home Loan Bank (Bank) membership, and in the purposes for which they may receive long-term advances and the collateral they may pledge to secure advances.1 Section 2(10)(A) of the Bank Act and § 1263.1 of FHFA’s regulations define a CFI as any Bank member the deposits of which are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and that has average total assets below a statutory cap.2 The Bank Act was amended in 2008 to set the statutory cap at $1 billion and to require the Director of FHFA to adjust the cap annually to reflect the percentage increase in the CPI–U, as published by the DOL, for the prior year.3 For 2013, FHFA set the CFI asset cap at $1,095,000,000, which reflected a 1.8 percent increase over 2012, based upon the increase in the CPI–U between 2011 and 2012.4 Section 309(a) of the Clean Air Act requires that EPA make public its comments on EISs issued by other Federal agencies.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has adjusted the cap on average total assets that defines a ‘‘Community Financial Institution’’ based on the annual percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers (CPI–U) as published by the Department of Labor (DOL). These changes took effect on January 1, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Nathan D.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:40 Jan 09, 2014 Jkt 232001 II. The CFI Asset Cap for 2014 As of January 1, 2014, FHFA has increased the CFI asset cap from $1,095,000,000 to $1,108,000,000, which reflects a 1.2 percent increase in the unadjusted CPI–U from November 2012 to November 2013. The new amount was obtained by rounding to the nearest million, as has been the practice for all prior adjustments. Consistent with the practice of other Federal agencies, FHFA bases the annual adjustment to the CFI asset cap on the percentage increase in the CPI–U from November of the year prior to the preceding calendar year to November of the preceding calendar year, because the November figures represent the most recent available data as of January 1st of the current calendar year. In calculating the CFI asset cap, FHFA uses CPI–U data that have not been seasonally adjusted (i.e., the data have not been adjusted to remove the estimated effect of price changes that normally occur at the same time and in about the same magnitude every year). The DOL encourages use of unadjusted CPI–U data in applying ‘‘escalation’’ provisions such as that governing the CFI asset cap, because the factors that are used to seasonally adjust the data 1 See 12 U.S.C. 1424(a), 1430(a). 12 U.S.C. 1422(10)(A); 12 CFR 1263.1. 3 See 12 U.S.C. 1422(10); 12 CFR 1263.1 (defining the term CFI asset cap). 4 See 78 FR 19262 (Mar. 29, 2013). 2 See PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 are amended annually, and seasonally adjusted data that are published earlier are subject to revision for up to five years following their original release.

Final approval under OMB delegated authority of the revision, without extension, of the following reports: AGENCY: E:\FR\FM\10JAN1.SGM 10JAN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 7 / Friday, January 10, 2014 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 1. Report title: Financial Statements for Holding Companies.1 Agency form number: FR Y–9C. OMB control number: 7100–0128. Frequency: Quarterly. Reporters: Bank holding companies (BHCs), savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs), and securities holding companies (SHCs) (collectively, ‘‘holding companies’’ (HCs)). Estimated average hours per response: Non-advanced approaches HCs: 48.84 hours, and advanced approaches HCs: 50.09. Estimated annual reporting hours: 222,770 hours. Number of respondents: 1,140. General description of report: This information collection is mandatory for BHCs (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)(1)(A)). Additionally, 12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2)(A) and 1850a(c)(1)(A), respectively, authorize the Federal Reserve to require that SLHCs and supervised SHCs file the FR Y–9C with the Federal Reserve. Confidential treatment is not routinely given to the financial data in this report. However, confidential treatment for the reporting information, in whole or in part, can be requested in accordance with the instructions to the form, pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), or (b)(8) of FOIA (5 U.S.C. 522(b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8)). Abstract: The FR Y–9C consists of standardized financial statements similar to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Reports) (FFIEC 031 & 041; OMB No. 7100–0036) filed by commercial banks and savings associations. The FR Y–9C collects consolidated data from HCs. The FR Y– 9C is filed by top-tier HCs (under certain circumstances, a lower-tier HC may act as the top tier of the organization for purposes of regulatory reporting) with total consolidated assets of $500 million or more. (Under certain circumstances defined in the General Instructions, BHCs under $500 million may be required to file the FR Y–9C.) The Federal Reserve proposed revisions to the FR Y–9C consistent with the regulatory capital rules approved by the Board on July 2, 2013 (revised regulatory capital rules).2 1 This family of reports also contains the following mandatory reports, which are not being revised: the Parent Company Only Financial Statements for Large Bank Holding Companies (FR Y–9LP), the Financial Statements for Employee Stock Ownership Plan Bank Holding Companies (FR Y–9ES), and the Supplement to the Consolidated Financial Statements for Bank Holding Companies (FR Y–9CS). 2 On July 2, 2013, the Board approved the revised regulatory capital rules that were proposed on August 30, 2012. On July 9, 2013 the OCC approved VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:40 Jan 09, 2014 Jkt 232001 Current Actions: On August 12, 2013, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (78 FR 48871, August 12, 2013) requesting public comment for 60 days on the revision to the FR Y–9C (the proposal). The comment period for this notice expired on October 11, 2013. The Federal Reserve received two comment letters regarding proposed revisions to the FR Y–9C from one banking organization and one bankers’ association. In addition, the Federal Reserve, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) (the agencies) collectively received three comment letters, including the two comment letters mentioned above, on proposed revisions to the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Reports) (FFIEC 031 & 041; OMB No. 7100–0036), which parallel proposed revisions to the FR Y–9C and were taken into consideration in finalizing the proposal.3 The commenters asked for clarification on the applicability and effective dates of the proposed reporting requirements and for additional clarifications and instructions on certain line items.4 Detailed Discussion of Public Comments 1. Proposed FR Y–9C, Schedule HC–R Under the proposal, in March 2014, the existing and proposed regulatory capital components and ratios portion of Schedule HC–R would be designated Parts I.A and I.B, respectively. the revised regulatory capital rules and the FDIC issued an interim final rule to approve the revised regulatory capital rules. See 78 FR 62018 (October 11, 2013) (Board and OCC); 78 FR 55340 (September 10, 2013) (FDIC). See also 77 FR 52888, 52909, 52958 (August 30, 2012). 3 The Federal Reserve expects to publish at a later date a request for comment to revise the riskweighted assets portion of the FR Y–9C, Schedule HC–R, Part II and add Part II to the FR Y–9SP, Schedule SC–R, consistent with the standardized approach for calculating risk-weighted assets under the revised regulatory capital rules. The revisions to the risk-weighted assets portion of the respective regulatory capital schedules would become effective in the first applicable reporting period in 2015. Therefore, for report dates in 2014, all HC– R respondents will continue to report risk-weighted assets in the portion of Schedule HC–R that contains existing data items 34 through 62 and Memoranda items 1 and 2 of current Schedule HC– R, but this portion of the schedule would be designated Part II and the data items would retain their existing numbers. 4 In addition, one other commenter on the proposal urged the Federal Reserve to revise the regulatory capital treatment of the allowance for loan and lease losses (ALLL) if the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) changes the accounting standards applicable to ALLL. The Federal Reserve notes that this comment suggests a substantive change to the revised regulatory capital rules and is outside the scope of the proposed changes to the FR Y–9C and the FR Y–9SP. PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1863 Advanced approaches HCs would be required to file Part I.B in March 2014, which includes the reporting revisions consistent with the revised regulatory capital rules. All other HCs, except SLHCs, would file Part I.A, which includes existing data items 1 through 33 of current Schedule HC–R, for the reporting periods in 2014. In March 2015, Part I.A would be removed and Part I.B would be designated Part I; all HCs that are subject to FRY–9C filing requirements would then submit Schedule HC–R, Part I. As proposed, Part I.B, Regulatory Capital Components and Ratios, would be divided into the following sections: (A) common equity tier 1 capital; (B) common equity tier 1 capital: adjustments and deductions; (C) additional tier 1 capital; (D) tier 2 capital; (E) total assets for the leverage ratio; (F) capital ratios; and (G) capital buffer. A brief description of each of these sections and the corresponding line items is provided below. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments on the overall structure of the proposed Schedule HC–R, Part I.B and thus the Federal Reserve is proceeding with the overall structure of Part I.B, as proposed. The Federal Reserve received several questions regarding the effective dates of the proposed FR Y–9C and certain items that apply to advanced approaches institutions only. One commenter asked when an HC subject to the Supervision and Regulation Letter (SR) 01–1 exemption must report the FR Y–9C, including the proposed Schedule HC–R. The Federal Reserve is clarifying in the reporting instructions that, consistent with the revised regulatory capital rules, these institutions are not subject to the consolidated regulatory capital requirements until July 21, 2015.5 Thus, these institutions will be required to file the FR Y–9C, including the proposed Schedule HC–R, in the first reporting period following that date, which is the September 30, 2015, reporting date. The same commenter asked when an HC is required to complete items that apply to advanced approaches HCs if the institution becomes subject to the advanced approaches rule but has not begun its parallel run period. The Federal Reserve is clarifying in the general instructions for the proposed Schedule HC–R that an institution must begin reporting certain advanced approaches-related items at the end of the quarter after the quarter in which the institution triggers one of the threshold criteria for applying the 5 78 E:\FR\FM\10JAN1.SGM FR 62018 (October 11, 2013). 10JAN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 1864 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 7 / Friday, January 10, 2014 / Notices advanced approaches rule or elects to use the advanced approaches rule (an opt-in institution). An institution will be deemed to have elected to use the advanced approaches rule on the date that the Federal Reserve receives from the institution a board-approved implementation plan pursuant to section 121(b)(2) of the revised regulatory capital rules. After that date, the institution may no longer apply the accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI) opt-out election, consistent with section 22(b)(2) of the revised regulatory capital rules, and it becomes immediately subject to the supplementary leverage ratio in section 10(c)(4) and associated transition provisions. The institutions will be required to report all other advancedapproaches related items (i.e., items 30.b, 32.b, 34.b, 35.b, 40.b, column B in items 41 through 44, and item 46.b) only after it completes its parallel run period, consistent with the proposal. The Federal Reserve received several questions regarding the reporting treatment for items subject to transition provisions in the proposed Schedule HC–R, Part I.B. Specifically, commenters asked for clarification on reporting transition amounts of items subject to regulatory capital adjustments and deductions and reporting disallowed amounts during the transition period. As described below in section 1.B below, transition amounts are to be reported in the Schedule HC– R line item applicable to the particular regulatory capital adjustment or deduction, while the otherwise disallowed portion of each of those items is either risk-weighted or deducted from additional tier 1 capital, depending on the item. Commenters also asked for clarification of the reporting of the riskweighted portion of an item subject to deduction in Schedule HC–R. The Federal Reserve is clarifying the instructions for Part I.B of Schedule HC–R that the risk-weighted portion of such items as proposed must be reported in the line item appropriate to the item subject to deduction in Schedule HC–R, Part II, Risk-Weighted Assets. In addition, the Federal Reserve is clarifying that even though certain deductions may be net of associated deferred tax liabilities (DTLs), the riskweighted portion of those items may not be reduced by the associated DTLs. For example, for HCs subject to the revised regulatory capital rules on January 1, 2014, the appropriate line item for reporting the risk-weighted portion of mortgage servicing assets (MSAs) that are not deducted from common equity tier 1 capital, for report VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:40 Jan 09, 2014 Jkt 232001 dates in 2014, is Schedule HC–R, Part II, item 42, ‘‘All other assets.’’ The riskweighted asset portion of MSAs may not be reduced by any associated DTLs. Also, the Federal Reserve proposed that line items in Part II be renumbered in 2015 because, as indicated in the proposal, the risk-weighted assets portion of Schedule HC–R would be revised to incorporate the standardized approach for calculating risk-weighted assets under the revised regulatory capital rules. Line item references in Schedule HC–R, Part II will be updated, as appropriate, in the instructions for 2015 after the revisions to the riskweighted assets portion of the schedule are finalized. Two commenters asked whether the proposed deduction of equity investments in financial subsidiaries in Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, line 10(b), should apply to HCs. The Federal Reserve is clarifying the instructions to note that, consistent with the current regulatory capital rules and reporting requirements, the requirement to deduct equity investments in financial subsidiaries does not apply at the consolidated HC level. One commenter asked about deductions from common equity tier 1 capital and additional tier 1 that must be made to calculate total assets for the leverage ratio. The Federal Reserve is specifying in the reporting instructions the deductions that must be made to calculate total assets for the leverage ratio, as described in section 1.E below. One commenter asked the Federal Reserve to confirm the effective dates for reporting the capital conservation buffer and the supplementary leverage ratio. The Federal Reserve is confirming that the capital conservation buffer (and any other applicable buffer for advanced approaches institutions) must be reported for report dates after January 1, 2016. Advanced approaches HCs must report the supplementary leverage ratio for report dates after January 1, 2015 (see section 1.F below for further details). The Federal Reserve also is shading out the corresponding cells in the reporting form for Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, to show that institutions should not report these items until they become effective. A brief description of the proposed revisions and the comments received on specific line items in Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, is provided below. A. Proposed Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, Items 1–5: Common Equity Tier 1 Capital Under the proposal, line items 1 through 5 will collect information regarding the new regulatory capital PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 component, common equity tier 1 capital. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments on these line items and thus the Federal Reserve is retaining the proposed line items without modification. B. Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, Items 6–19: Common Equity Tier 1 Capital: Adjustments and Deductions Proposed line items 6 through 19 reflect adjustments and deductions to common equity tier 1 capital, as described in section 22 of the revised regulatory capital rules. The Federal Reserve received a number of questions on reporting items subject to transition provisions. Specifically, questions related to items 7 through 10 asked where the transition amounts of the adjustments and deductions covered by these specific items are to be reported. The instructions for proposed Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, explain that during the transition period as proposed, institutions must report the transition amounts of these adjustments and deductions, rather than their fully phased-in amounts, in items 7 through 10. Institutions will not be required to report fully phased-in amounts in items 7 through 10 until the transition period ends. For example, during the transition period, an institution must report in item 7 the appropriate transition amount of intangible assets (other than goodwill and MSAs), net of associated DTLs, as described in the instructions for that line item. The institution must also risk weight the non-deducted portion of that item at 100 percent and report it in Schedule HC–R, Part II, item 42, ‘‘All other assets.’’ As another example, during the transition period, an institution must report in item 8 the appropriate transition amount of deferred tax assets (DTAs) that arise from net operating loss and tax credit carryforwards, net of any related valuation allowances and net of DTLs, calculated as a percentage of the adjustment applied to common equity tier 1 capital. The institution must then report during the transition period the remaining balance of DTAs that arise from net operating loss and tax credit carryforwards, net of any related valuation allowances and net of DTLs, in Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, item 24, ‘‘Additional tier 1 capital deductions.’’ A commenter also asked about risk weighting the non-deducted portion of the threshold items (that is, significant investments in the capital of unconsolidated financial institutions in the form of common stock, net of associated DTLs; MSAs net of associated DTLs; and DTAs arising from temporary E:\FR\FM\10JAN1.SGM 10JAN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 7 / Friday, January 10, 2014 / Notices differences that could not be realized through net operating loss carrybacks, net of related valuation allowances and net of DTLs). The instructions for proposed Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, will explain that during the transition period the non-deducted portion of these threshold items must be risk weighted at 100 percent in accordance with section 300 of the revised regulatory capital rules and reported in Schedule HC–R, Part II, ‘‘All other assets.’’ For report dates after January 1, 2018, the nondeducted portion of the threshold items must be risk-weighted at 250 percent in accordance with section 22 of the revised regulatory capital rules and reported in the appropriate asset category in Schedule HC–R, Part II. C. Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, Items 20 Through 25: Additional Tier 1 Capital, and Item 26: Tier 1 Capital Proposed line items 20 through 25 pertain to the reporting of additional tier 1 capital elements under section 20 of the revised regulatory capital rules, along with related adjustments for nonqualifying capital instruments subject to phase-out. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments on these line items and thus the Federal Reserve is retaining the proposed line items without modification. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES D. Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, Items 27 Through 34: Tier 2 Capital, and Item 35: Total Capital Proposed line items 27 through 34 pertain to the reporting of tier 2 capital elements under section 20 of the revised regulatory capital rules, along with related adjustments for non-qualifying capital instruments subject to phase-out. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments on these line items and thus the Federal Reserve is retaining the proposed line items without modification. E. Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, Items 36 Through 39: Total Assets for the Leverage Ratio Under the proposal, institutions will report data for the calculation of the leverage ratio in items 36 through 39. One commenter asked the Federal Reserve to confirm the deductions from common equity tier 1 capital and additional tier 1 capital that must be made to calculate total assets for the leverage ratio. Specifically, the commenter asked whether the deductions made in Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, items 13 through 15, also must be made for purposes of the leverage ratio. The Federal Reserve is clarifying the reporting instructions for proposed Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, items 37 and VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:40 Jan 09, 2014 Jkt 232001 38, to address the commenter’s question. The Federal Reserve confirms that the amounts deducted from common equity tier 1 and additional tier 1 capital in Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, that items 6, 7, 8, 10.b, 11, 13 through 17, and 24 must be included in Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, item 37. In addition, any other amounts that are deducted from common equity tier 1 and additional tier 1 capital, such as deductions related to AOCIadjustments, must be included in Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, item 38. F. Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, Item 40: Total Risk-Weighted Assets and Items 41 Through 45: Capital Ratios Under the proposal, institutions will report data for the calculation of riskweighted assets and capital ratios in items 41 through 45. The Federal Reserve received one question on this section of the proposal. Specifically, a commenter asked the Federal Reserve to confirm the effective date of reporting the supplementary leverage ratio in item 45. The Federal Reserve is modifying the Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, reporting form and instructions for proposed item 45 to clarify that this item must be reported for report dates after January 1, 2015. Under the proposal, for report dates in 2014, HCs that are advanced approaches institutions will continue applying the general risk-based capital rules to calculate their total risk-weighted assets, which will continue to be reported in current item 62 of the risk-weighted assets portion of Schedule HC–R (to be designated Part II of the schedule in March 2014). This total risk-weighted assets amount will then also be reported in item 40.a of Part I.B of Schedule HC– R for report dates in 2014 and will serve as the denominator for the risk-based capital ratios reported in Schedule HC– R, Part I.B, items 41 through 44, column A. Effective March 31, 2015, HCs will be required to apply the standardized approach, described in subpart D of the revised regulatory capital rules, to calculate and report their risk-weighted assets in item 40.a and the risk-based capital ratios in items 41 through 44, column A, of the regulatory capital components and ratios portion of Schedule HC–R. Advanced approaches HCs will report items 40 through 45 on proposed Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, as follows. • For report dates in 2014, these institutions will continue applying the general risk-based capital rules to report their total risk-weighted assets in item 40.a, which will serve as the denominator of the ratios reported in items 41 through 44, column A.

The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments on the proposed reporting of the regulatory capital ratios by advanced approaches institutions and thus the Federal Reserve is retaining this section of the proposal without modification. G. Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, Items 46 Through 48: Capital Buffer Under the proposal, an institution’s capital conservation buffer and related information will be reported in items 46 through 48. The Federal Reserve received a question asking to confirm the effective date for reporting items 46 through 48. The Federal Reserve is modifying the Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, reporting form and instructions for proposed items 46 through 48 to clarify that these items become effective for report dates after January 1, 2016. Until March 31, 2016, the corresponding cells in the draft reporting form for Schedule HC–R, Part I.B, will be shaded out. 2.

However, confidential treatment for the reporting information, in whole or in part, can be requested in accordance with the instructions to the form, pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), or (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8)). Abstract: The FR Y–9SP is a parent company only financial statement filed by HCs with total consolidated assets of less than $500 million. This form is a simplified or abbreviated version of the more extensive parent company only financial statement for large HCs (FR Y– 9LP). This report is designed to obtain basic balance sheet and income information for the parent company, information on intangible assets, and information on intercompany transactions. The Federal Reserve proposed several revisions to the FR Y– 9SP consistent with the regulatory capital rules approved by the Board on July 2, 2013 (revised regulatory capital rules).6 Current Actions: On August 12, 2013, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (78 FR 48871) requesting public comment for 60 days on the revision to the FR Y–9SP. The comment period for this notice expired on October 11, 2013. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments specific to the proposed Schedule SC–R on the FR Y–9SP. The Federal Reserve is making corresponding changes to the Schedule SC–R reporting form and instructions consistent with the Schedule HC–R changes described above. In addition, the Federal Reserve is modifying the name of the proposed ‘‘Schedule SC–R, Regulatory Capital Components and Ratios’’ to ‘‘Schedule SC–R, Regulatory Capital, Part I. Regulatory Capital Components and Ratios.’’ This modification will be consistent with the Federal Reserve’s intent to propose additions to the proposed Schedule SC–R, which will collect information on risk-weighted assets for the regulatory capital ratios and be designated as Part II. 6 On July 2, 2013, the Board approved the revised regulatory capital rules that were proposed on August 30, 2012. On July 9, 2013 the OCC approved the revised regulatory capital rules and the FDIC issued an interim final rule to approve the revised regulatory capital rules.

FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM


Agency Information Collection Activities: Announcement of Board 
Approval Under Delegated Authority and Submission to OMB

AGENCY: Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
SUMMARY: Background. Notice is hereby given of the final approval of a 
proposed information collection by the Board of Governors of the 
Federal Reserve System (Board) under OMB delegated authority, as per 5 
CFR 1320.16 (OMB Regulations on Controlling Paperwork Burdens on the 
Public). Board-approved collections of information are incorporated 
into the official OMB inventory of currently approved collections of 
information. Copies of the Paperwork Reduction Act Submission, 
supporting statements and approved collection of information 
instruments are placed into OMB's public docket files. The Federal 
Reserve may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required 
to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, 
revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays 
a currently valid OMB control number.

    Final approval under OMB delegated authority of the revision, 
without extension, of the following reports:

[[Page 1863]]

    1. Report title: Financial Statements for Holding Companies.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ This family of reports also contains the following mandatory 
reports, which are not being revised: the Parent Company Only 
Financial Statements for Large Bank Holding Companies (FR Y-9LP), 
the Financial Statements for Employee Stock Ownership Plan Bank 
Holding Companies (FR Y-9ES), and the Supplement to the Consolidated 
Financial Statements for Bank Holding Companies (FR Y-9CS).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Agency form number: FR Y-9C.
    OMB control number: 7100-0128.
    Frequency: Quarterly.
    Reporters: Bank holding companies (BHCs), savings and loan holding 
companies (SLHCs), and securities holding companies (SHCs) 
(collectively, ``holding companies'' (HCs)).
    Estimated average hours per response: Non-advanced approaches HCs: 
48.84 hours, and advanced approaches HCs: 50.09.
    Estimated annual reporting hours: 222,770 hours.
    Number of respondents: 1,140.
    General description of report: This information collection is 
mandatory for BHCs (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)(1)(A)). Additionally, 12 U.S.C. 
1467a(b)(2)(A) and 1850a(c)(1)(A), respectively, authorize the Federal 
Reserve to require that SLHCs and supervised SHCs file the FR Y-9C with 
the Federal Reserve. Confidential treatment is not routinely given to 
the financial data in this report. However, confidential treatment for 
the reporting information, in whole or in part, can be requested in 
accordance with the instructions to the form, pursuant to sections 
(b)(4), (b)(6), or (b)(8) of FOIA (5 U.S.C. 522(b)(4), (b)(6), and 
(b)(8)).
    Abstract: The FR Y-9C consists of standardized financial statements 
similar to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council 
(FFIEC) Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Reports) 
(FFIEC 031 & 041; OMB No. 7100-0036) filed by commercial banks and 
savings associations. The FR Y-9C collects consolidated data from HCs. 
The FR Y-9C is filed by top-tier HCs (under certain circumstances, a 
lower-tier HC may act as the top tier of the organization for purposes 
of regulatory reporting) with total consolidated assets of $500 million 
or more. (Under certain circumstances defined in the General 
Instructions, BHCs under $500 million may be required to file the FR Y-
9C.) The Federal Reserve proposed revisions to the FR Y-9C consistent 
with the regulatory capital rules approved by the Board on July 2, 2013 
(revised regulatory capital rules).\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ On July 2, 2013, the Board approved the revised regulatory 
capital rules that were proposed on August 30, 2012. On July 9, 2013 
the OCC approved the revised regulatory capital rules and the FDIC 
issued an interim final rule to approve the revised regulatory 
capital rules. See 78 FR 62018 (October 11, 2013) (Board and OCC); 
78 FR 55340 (September 10, 2013) (FDIC). See also 77 FR 52888, 
52909, 52958 (August 30, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Current Actions: On August 12, 2013, the Federal Reserve published 
a notice in the Federal Register (78 FR 48871, August 12, 2013) 
requesting public comment for 60 days on the revision to the FR Y-9C 
(the proposal). The comment period for this notice expired on October 
11, 2013.
    The Federal Reserve received two comment letters regarding proposed 
revisions to the FR Y-9C from one banking organization and one bankers' 
association. In addition, the Federal Reserve, Federal Deposit 
Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and Office of the Comptroller of the 
Currency (OCC) (the agencies) collectively received three comment 
letters, including the two comment letters mentioned above, on proposed 
revisions to the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call 
Reports) (FFIEC 031 & 041; OMB No. 7100-0036), which parallel proposed 
revisions to the FR Y-9C and were taken into consideration in 
finalizing the proposal.\3\ The commenters asked for clarification on 
the applicability and effective dates of the proposed reporting 
requirements and for additional clarifications and instructions on 
certain line items.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The Federal Reserve expects to publish at a later date a 
request for comment to revise the risk-weighted assets portion of 
the FR Y-9C, Schedule HC-R, Part II and add Part II to the FR Y-9SP, 
Schedule SC-R, consistent with the standardized approach for 
calculating risk-weighted assets under the revised regulatory 
capital rules. The revisions to the risk-weighted assets portion of 
the respective regulatory capital schedules would become effective 
in the first applicable reporting period in 2015. Therefore, for 
report dates in 2014, all HC-R respondents will continue to report 
risk-weighted assets in the portion of Schedule HC-R that contains 
existing data items 34 through 62 and Memoranda items 1 and 2 of 
current Schedule HC-R, but this portion of the schedule would be 
designated Part II and the data items would retain their existing 
numbers.
    \4\ In addition, one other commenter on the proposal urged the 
Federal Reserve to revise the regulatory capital treatment of the 
allowance for loan and lease losses (ALLL) if the Financial 
Accounting Standards Board (FASB) changes the accounting standards 
applicable to ALLL. The Federal Reserve notes that this comment 
suggests a substantive change to the revised regulatory capital 
rules and is outside the scope of the proposed changes to the FR Y-
9C and the FR Y-9SP.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Detailed Discussion of Public Comments

1. Proposed FR Y-9C, Schedule HC-R

    Under the proposal, in March 2014, the existing and proposed 
regulatory capital components and ratios portion of Schedule HC-R would 
be designated Parts I.A and I.B, respectively. Advanced approaches HCs 
would be required to file Part I.B in March 2014, which includes the 
reporting revisions consistent with the revised regulatory capital 
rules. All other HCs, except SLHCs, would file Part I.A, which includes 
existing data items 1 through 33 of current Schedule HC-R, for the 
reporting periods in 2014. In March 2015, Part I.A would be removed and 
Part I.B would be designated Part I; all HCs that are subject to FRY-9C 
filing requirements would then submit Schedule HC-R, Part I.
    As proposed, Part I.B, Regulatory Capital Components and Ratios, 
would be divided into the following sections: (A) common equity tier 1 
capital; (B) common equity tier 1 capital: adjustments and deductions; 
(C) additional tier 1 capital; (D) tier 2 capital; (E) total assets for 
the leverage ratio; (F) capital ratios; and (G) capital buffer. A brief 
description of each of these sections and the corresponding line items 
is provided below. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments on 
the overall structure of the proposed Schedule HC-R, Part I.B and thus 
the Federal Reserve is proceeding with the overall structure of Part 
I.B, as proposed.
    The Federal Reserve received several questions regarding the 
effective dates of the proposed FR Y-9C and certain items that apply to 
advanced approaches institutions only. One commenter asked when an HC 
subject to the Supervision and Regulation Letter (SR) 01-1 exemption 
must report the FR Y-9C, including the proposed Schedule HC-R. The 
Federal Reserve is clarifying in the reporting instructions that, 
consistent with the revised regulatory capital rules, these 
institutions are not subject to the consolidated regulatory capital 
requirements until July 21, 2015.\5\ Thus, these institutions will be 
required to file the FR Y-9C, including the proposed Schedule HC-R, in 
the first reporting period following that date, which is the September 
30, 2015, reporting date.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ 78 FR 62018 (October 11, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The same commenter asked when an HC is required to complete items 
that apply to advanced approaches HCs if the institution becomes 
subject to the advanced approaches rule but has not begun its parallel 
run period. The Federal Reserve is clarifying in the general 
instructions for the proposed Schedule HC-R that an institution must 
begin reporting certain advanced approaches-related items at the end of 
the quarter after the quarter in which the institution triggers one of 
the threshold criteria for applying the

[[Page 1864]]

advanced approaches rule or elects to use the advanced approaches rule 
(an opt-in institution). An institution will be deemed to have elected 
to use the advanced approaches rule on the date that the Federal 
Reserve receives from the institution a board-approved implementation 
plan pursuant to section 121(b)(2) of the revised regulatory capital 
rules. After that date, the institution may no longer apply the 
accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI) opt-out election, 
consistent with section 22(b)(2) of the revised regulatory capital 
rules, and it becomes immediately subject to the supplementary leverage 
ratio in section 10(c)(4) and associated transition provisions. The 
institutions will be required to report all other advanced-approaches 
related items (i.e., items 30.b, 32.b, 34.b, 35.b, 40.b, column B in 
items 41 through 44, and item 46.b) only after it completes its 
parallel run period, consistent with the proposal.
    The Federal Reserve received several questions regarding the 
reporting treatment for items subject to transition provisions in the 
proposed Schedule HC-R, Part I.B. Specifically, commenters asked for 
clarification on reporting transition amounts of items subject to 
regulatory capital adjustments and deductions and reporting disallowed 
amounts during the transition period. As described below in section 1.B 
below, transition amounts are to be reported in the Schedule HC-R line 
item applicable to the particular regulatory capital adjustment or 
deduction, while the otherwise disallowed portion of each of those 
items is either risk-weighted or deducted from additional tier 1 
capital, depending on the item.
    Commenters also asked for clarification of the reporting of the 
risk-weighted portion of an item subject to deduction in Schedule HC-R. 
The Federal Reserve is clarifying the instructions for Part I.B of 
Schedule HC-R that the risk-weighted portion of such items as proposed 
must be reported in the line item appropriate to the item subject to 
deduction in Schedule HC-R, Part II, Risk-Weighted Assets. In addition, 
the Federal Reserve is clarifying that even though certain deductions 
may be net of associated deferred tax liabilities (DTLs), the risk-
weighted portion of those items may not be reduced by the associated 
DTLs.
    For example, for HCs subject to the revised regulatory capital 
rules on January 1, 2014, the appropriate line item for reporting the 
risk-weighted portion of mortgage servicing assets (MSAs) that are not 
deducted from common equity tier 1 capital, for report dates in 2014, 
is Schedule HC-R, Part II, item 42, ``All other assets.'' The risk-
weighted asset portion of MSAs may not be reduced by any associated 
DTLs. Also, the Federal Reserve proposed that line items in Part II be 
renumbered in 2015 because, as indicated in the proposal, the risk-
weighted assets portion of Schedule HC-R would be revised to 
incorporate the standardized approach for calculating risk-weighted 
assets under the revised regulatory capital rules. Line item references 
in Schedule HC-R, Part II will be updated, as appropriate, in the 
instructions for 2015 after the revisions to the risk-weighted assets 
portion of the schedule are finalized.
    Two commenters asked whether the proposed deduction of equity 
investments in financial subsidiaries in Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, line 
10(b), should apply to HCs. The Federal Reserve is clarifying the 
instructions to note that, consistent with the current regulatory 
capital rules and reporting requirements, the requirement to deduct 
equity investments in financial subsidiaries does not apply at the 
consolidated HC level.
    One commenter asked about deductions from common equity tier 1 
capital and additional tier 1 that must be made to calculate total 
assets for the leverage ratio. The Federal Reserve is specifying in the 
reporting instructions the deductions that must be made to calculate 
total assets for the leverage ratio, as described in section 1.E below.
    One commenter asked the Federal Reserve to confirm the effective 
dates for reporting the capital conservation buffer and the 
supplementary leverage ratio. The Federal Reserve is confirming that 
the capital conservation buffer (and any other applicable buffer for 
advanced approaches institutions) must be reported for report dates 
after January 1, 2016. Advanced approaches HCs must report the 
supplementary leverage ratio for report dates after January 1, 2015 
(see section 1.F below for further details). The Federal Reserve also 
is shading out the corresponding cells in the reporting form for 
Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, to show that institutions should not report 
these items until they become effective.
    A brief description of the proposed revisions and the comments 
received on specific line items in Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, is provided 
below.

A. Proposed Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, Items 1-5: Common Equity Tier 1 
Capital

    Under the proposal, line items 1 through 5 will collect information 
regarding the new regulatory capital component, common equity tier 1 
capital. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments on these line 
items and thus the Federal Reserve is retaining the proposed line items 
without modification.

B. Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, Items 6-19: Common Equity Tier 1 Capital: 
Adjustments and Deductions

    Proposed line items 6 through 19 reflect adjustments and deductions 
to common equity tier 1 capital, as described in section 22 of the 
revised regulatory capital rules. The Federal Reserve received a number 
of questions on reporting items subject to transition provisions. 
Specifically, questions related to items 7 through 10 asked where the 
transition amounts of the adjustments and deductions covered by these 
specific items are to be reported. The instructions for proposed 
Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, explain that during the transition period as 
proposed, institutions must report the transition amounts of these 
adjustments and deductions, rather than their fully phased-in amounts, 
in items 7 through 10. Institutions will not be required to report 
fully phased-in amounts in items 7 through 10 until the transition 
period ends.
    For example, during the transition period, an institution must 
report in item 7 the appropriate transition amount of intangible assets 
(other than goodwill and MSAs), net of associated DTLs, as described in 
the instructions for that line item. The institution must also risk 
weight the non-deducted portion of that item at 100 percent and report 
it in Schedule HC-R, Part II, item 42, ``All other assets.'' As another 
example, during the transition period, an institution must report in 
item 8 the appropriate transition amount of deferred tax assets (DTAs) 
that arise from net operating loss and tax credit carryforwards, net of 
any related valuation allowances and net of DTLs, calculated as a 
percentage of the adjustment applied to common equity tier 1 capital. 
The institution must then report during the transition period the 
remaining balance of DTAs that arise from net operating loss and tax 
credit carryforwards, net of any related valuation allowances and net 
of DTLs, in Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, item 24, ``Additional tier 1 
capital deductions.''
    A commenter also asked about risk weighting the non-deducted 
portion of the threshold items (that is, significant investments in the 
capital of unconsolidated financial institutions in the form of common 
stock, net of associated DTLs; MSAs net of associated DTLs; and DTAs 
arising from temporary

[[Page 1865]]

differences that could not be realized through net operating loss 
carrybacks, net of related valuation allowances and net of DTLs). The 
instructions for proposed Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, will explain that 
during the transition period the non-deducted portion of these 
threshold items must be risk weighted at 100 percent in accordance with 
section 300 of the revised regulatory capital rules and reported in 
Schedule HC-R, Part II, ``All other assets.'' For report dates after 
January 1, 2018, the non-deducted portion of the threshold items must 
be risk-weighted at 250 percent in accordance with section 22 of the 
revised regulatory capital rules and reported in the appropriate asset 
category in Schedule HC-R, Part II.

C. Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, Items 20 Through 25: Additional Tier 1 
Capital, and Item 26: Tier 1 Capital

    Proposed line items 20 through 25 pertain to the reporting of 
additional tier 1 capital elements under section 20 of the revised 
regulatory capital rules, along with related adjustments for non-
qualifying capital instruments subject to phase-out. The Federal 
Reserve did not receive any comments on these line items and thus the 
Federal Reserve is retaining the proposed line items without 
modification.

D. Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, Items 27 Through 34: Tier 2 Capital, and 
Item 35: Total Capital

    Proposed line items 27 through 34 pertain to the reporting of tier 
2 capital elements under section 20 of the revised regulatory capital 
rules, along with related adjustments for non-qualifying capital 
instruments subject to phase-out. The Federal Reserve did not receive 
any comments on these line items and thus the Federal Reserve is 
retaining the proposed line items without modification.

E. Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, Items 36 Through 39: Total Assets for the 
Leverage Ratio

    Under the proposal, institutions will report data for the 
calculation of the leverage ratio in items 36 through 39. One commenter 
asked the Federal Reserve to confirm the deductions from common equity 
tier 1 capital and additional tier 1 capital that must be made to 
calculate total assets for the leverage ratio. Specifically, the 
commenter asked whether the deductions made in Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, 
items 13 through 15, also must be made for purposes of the leverage 
ratio. The Federal Reserve is clarifying the reporting instructions for 
proposed Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, items 37 and 38, to address the 
commenter's question. The Federal Reserve confirms that the amounts 
deducted from common equity tier 1 and additional tier 1 capital in 
Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, that items 6, 7, 8, 10.b, 11, 13 through 17, 
and 24 must be included in Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, item 37. In 
addition, any other amounts that are deducted from common equity tier 1 
and additional tier 1 capital, such as deductions related to AOCI-
adjustments, must be included in Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, item 38.

F. Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, Item 40: Total Risk-Weighted Assets and 
Items 41 Through 45: Capital Ratios

    Under the proposal, institutions will report data for the 
calculation of risk-weighted assets and capital ratios in items 41 
through 45. The Federal Reserve received one question on this section 
of the proposal. Specifically, a commenter asked the Federal Reserve to 
confirm the effective date of reporting the supplementary leverage 
ratio in item 45. The Federal Reserve is modifying the Schedule HC-R, 
Part I.B, reporting form and instructions for proposed item 45 to 
clarify that this item must be reported for report dates after January 
1, 2015.
    Under the proposal, for report dates in 2014, HCs that are advanced 
approaches institutions will continue applying the general risk-based 
capital rules to calculate their total risk-weighted assets, which will 
continue to be reported in current item 62 of the risk-weighted assets 
portion of Schedule HC-R (to be designated Part II of the schedule in 
March 2014). This total risk-weighted assets amount will then also be 
reported in item 40.a of Part I.B of Schedule HC-R for report dates in 
2014 and will serve as the denominator for the risk-based capital 
ratios reported in Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, items 41 through 44, column 
A. Effective March 31, 2015, HCs will be required to apply the 
standardized approach, described in subpart D of the revised regulatory 
capital rules, to calculate and report their risk-weighted assets in 
item 40.a and the risk-based capital ratios in items 41 through 44, 
column A, of the regulatory capital components and ratios portion of 
Schedule HC-R.
    Advanced approaches HCs will report items 40 through 45 on proposed 
Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, as follows.
     For report dates in 2014, these institutions will continue 
applying the general risk-based capital rules to report their total 
risk-weighted assets in item 40.a, which will serve as the denominator 
of the ratios reported in items 41 through 44, column A.
     Starting on March 31, 2015, these institutions will apply 
the standardized approach, described in subpart D of the revised 
regulatory capital rules, to calculate and report their risk-weighted 
assets in item 40.a and the regulatory capital ratios in items 41 
through 44, column A.
     After they conduct a satisfactory parallel run, these 
institutions will report their total risk-weighted assets (item 40.b) 
and regulatory capital ratios (items 41 through 44, column B) using the 
advanced approaches rule.
     In addition, starting on March 31, 2015, these 
institutions will report a supplementary leverage ratio in item 45, as 
described in section 10 of the revised regulatory capital rules.
    The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments on the proposed 
reporting of the regulatory capital ratios by advanced approaches 
institutions and thus the Federal Reserve is retaining this section of 
the proposal without modification.

G. Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, Items 46 Through 48: Capital Buffer

    Under the proposal, an institution's capital conservation buffer 
and related information will be reported in items 46 through 48. The 
Federal Reserve received a question asking to confirm the effective 
date for reporting items 46 through 48. The Federal Reserve is 
modifying the Schedule HC-R, Part I.B, reporting form and instructions 
for proposed items 46 through 48 to clarify that these items become 
effective for report dates after January 1, 2016. Until March 31, 2016, 
the corresponding cells in the draft reporting form for Schedule HC-R, 
Part I.B, will be shaded out.

Confidential treatment is not routinely given to the financial data in 
this report. However, confidential treatment for the reporting 
information, in whole or in part, can be requested in accordance with 
the instructions to the form, pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), or 
(b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), (b)(6), 
and (b)(8)).
    Abstract: The FR Y-9SP is a parent company only financial statement 
filed by HCs with total consolidated assets of less than $500 million. 
This form is a simplified or abbreviated version of the more extensive 
parent company only financial statement for large HCs (FR Y-9LP). This 
report is designed to obtain basic balance sheet and income information 
for the parent company, information on intangible assets, and 
information on intercompany transactions. The Federal Reserve proposed 
several revisions to the FR Y-9SP consistent with the regulatory 
capital rules approved by the Board on July 2, 2013 (revised regulatory 
capital rules).\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ On July 2, 2013, the Board approved the revised regulatory 
capital rules that were proposed on August 30, 2012. On July 9, 2013 
the OCC approved the revised regulatory capital rules and the FDIC 
issued an interim final rule to approve the revised regulatory 
capital rules. See 78 FR 62018 (October 11, 2013) (Board and OCC); 
78 FR 55340 (September 10, 2013) (FDIC). See also 77 FR 52888, 
52909, 52958 (August 30, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Current Actions: On August 12, 2013, the Federal Reserve published 
a notice in the Federal Register (78 FR 48871) requesting public 
comment for 60 days on the revision to the FR Y-9SP. The comment period 
for this notice expired on October 11, 2013.
    The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments specific to the 
proposed Schedule SC-R on the FR Y-9SP. The Federal Reserve is making 
corresponding changes to the Schedule SC-R reporting form and 
instructions consistent with the Schedule HC-R changes described above.
    In addition, the Federal Reserve is modifying the name of the 
proposed ``Schedule SC-R, Regulatory Capital Components and Ratios'' to 
``Schedule SC-R, Regulatory Capital, Part I. Regulatory Capital 
Components and Ratios.'' This modification will be consistent with the 
Federal Reserve's intent to propose additions to the proposed Schedule 
SC-R, which will collect information on risk-weighted assets for the 
regulatory capital ratios and be designated as Part II.

    Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, January 7, 
2014.
Robert deV. Frierson,
Secretary of the Board.
