General description of report: This information collection is required pursuant to section 18(c) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1828(c)) and is not given confidential treatment. However, applicants may request that parts of a submitted application be kept confidential. In such cases, the burden is on the applicant to justify the exemption by demonstrating that disclosure would cause substantial competitive harm or result in an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy or would otherwise qualify for an exemption under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552). The confidentiality status of the information submitted will be judged on a case-bycase basis. Abstract: The Federal Reserve, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the agencies) each use this application form to collect information for bank merger proposals that require prior approval under the Bank Merger Act. Prior approval is required for every merger transaction involving affiliated or nonaffiliated institutions and must be sought from the regulatory agency of the depository institution that would survive the proposed transaction. A merger transaction may include a merger, consolidation, assumption of deposit liabilities, or certain asset-transfers between or among two or more institutions. The Federal Reserve collects this information so that it may meet its statutory obligation of evaluating (with respect to every state member bank merger proposal) the competitive effects, the adequacy of the financial and managerial resources of the institutions involved, and the effect on the convenience and needs of the affected communities. 2.

The agencies use the information to evaluate the controlling owners, senior officers, and directors of the insured depository institutions subject to their oversight. The information collected in an Interagency Notice of Change in Bank Control (FR 2081a) submitted to the Federal Reserve is provided by persons proposing to make significant investments in a BHC or SMB. The information collected in the Interagency Notice of Change in Director or Senior Executive Officer (FR 2081b) is required under Section 914 of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA) and is submitted to the Federal Reserve (under certain circumstances) by a BHC or SMB making changes in its board of directors or senior executive officers.
