Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 32814 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 136 / Tuesday, July 18, 2017 / Notices Number of respondents: FR Y–7N (annual): 50; FR Y–7N (annual): 46; FR Y–7NS: 66; FR Y–7Q (quarterly): 137; FR Y–7Q (annual): 32. General description of report: The FR Y–7N and FR Y–7NS collect financial information for non-functionally regulated U.S. nonbank subsidiaries held by FBOs other than through a BHC, IHC or U.S. bank. FBOs file the FR Y– 7N quarterly or annually or the FR Y– 7NS annually predominantly based on asset size thresholds. The FR Y–7Q collects consolidated regulatory capital information from all FBOs either quarterly or annually. The FR Y–7Q is filed quarterly by FBOs that have effectively elected to become or be treated as a U.S. financial holding company (FHC) and by FBOs that have total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more, regardless of FHC status. All other FBOs file the FR Y–7Q annually. Proposed revisions: The Federal Reserve proposes to revise the report form and instructions for the FR Y–7N to eliminate the concept of extraordinary items to be consistent with Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2015–01, reclassify and clarify the reporting for certain tax benefits, and replace report form captions and instructions referencing ‘‘Loans net of unearned income’’ with ‘‘Loans held for investment,’’ effective for reports submitted on or after October 1, 2017, beginning with the reports reflecting the September 30, 2017 report date. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board’s Legal Division has determined that the FR Y– 7N, FR Y–7NS, and FR Y–7Q are authorized by section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)) and sections 8(c) and 13 of the International Banking Act (12 U.S.C. 3106(c) and 3108). Section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Act (12 U.S.C. 5365) directs the Board to establish enhanced prudential standards for certain companies, including certain FBOs. The obligation of covered institutions to report this information is mandatory. In general, the Board does not consider the financial data in these reports to be confidential. However, a respondent may request confidential treatment pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8)). The applicability of these exemptions would need to be reviewed on a case by case basis. 3. Report title: Consolidated Report of Condition and Income for Edge and Agreement Corporations.

General description of report: The FR 2886b reporting form is filed quarterly and annually by banking Edge and agreement corporations and investment (nonbanking) Edge and agreement corporations (collectively, ‘‘Edges or Edge corporations’’). The mandatory FR 2886b comprises an income statement with two schedules reconciling changes in capital and reserve accounts and a balance sheet with 11 supporting schedules. Other than examination reports, it provides the only financial data available for these corporations. The Federal Reserve is solely responsible for authorizing, supervising, and assigning ratings to Edges. The Federal Reserve uses the data collected on the FR 2886b to identify present and potential problems and monitor and develop a better understanding of activities within the industry. Proposed revisions: The Federal Reserve proposes to revise the report form and instructions to eliminate the concept of extraordinary items to be consistent with Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2015–01, reclassify and clarify the reporting for certain tax benefits in the reporting instructions, and replace report form captions and instructions referencing ‘‘Loans net of unearned income’’ with ‘‘Loans held for investment,’’ effective for reports submitted on or after October 1, 2017, beginning with the reports reflecting the September 30, 2017 report date. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board’s Legal Division has determined that Sections 25 and 25A of the Federal Reserve Act PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 authorize the Federal Reserve to collect the FR 2886b (12 U.S.C. 602, 625).

Holding companies file the FR Y–11 on a quarterly or annual basis or the FR Y–11S on an annual basis, predominantly based on whether the organization meets certain asset size thresholds. The FR Y–11 data are used with other holding company data to assess the condition of holding companies that are heavily engaged in nonbanking activities and to monitor the volume, nature, and condition of their nonbanking operations. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board’s Legal Division has determined that the FR Y– 11 series of reports are mandatory and the collection of these reports from bank holding companies, savings and loan holding companies, securities holding companies, and intermediate holding companies (IHCs) is authorized under: Section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act (BHC Act) (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)); section 10(b) of the Homeowners’ Loan Act (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2)); section 165 of the DoddFrank Act (12 U.S.C. 5365)(IHCs only); sections 8 and 13 of the International Banking Act (12 U.S.C. 3106, 3108); and section 618 of the Dodd-Frank Act, (12 U.S.C. 1850a). Overall, the Federal Reserve does not consider these data to be confidential. However, a respondent may request confidential treatment pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), (b)(6), (b)(8)). The applicability of these exemptions would need to be determined on a case-by-case basis. Proposed revisions: The Federal Reserve is proposing to revise the instructions for Schedule IS and related line item captions on the reporting form to remove the term ‘‘extraordinary items’’ and replace it with ‘‘discontinued operations’’ on the Financial Statements of U.S. Nonbank Subsidiaries of U.S. Holding Companies (FR Y–11), effective for reports submitted on or after October 1, 2017, beginning with the reports reflecting the September 30, 2017 report date. This reflects ASU No. 2015–01, ‘‘Simplifying Income Statement Presentation by Eliminating the Concept of Extraordinary Items,’’ issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board in 2015.

Parent organizations (SMBs, Edge and agreement corporations, or holding companies) file the FR 2314 on a quarterly or annual basis, or the FR 2314S on an annual basis, predominantly based on whether the organization meets certain asset size thresholds. The FR 2314 data are used to identify current and potential problems at the foreign subsidiaries of U.S. parent companies, to monitor the activities of U.S. banking organizations in specific countries, and to develop a better understanding of activities within the industry, in general, and of individual institutions, in particular. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board’s Legal Division has determined that the FR 2314 series of reports is mandatory and the collection of these reports from bank holding companies, savings and loan holding companies, securities holding companies, and intermediate holding companies (IHCs) is authorized under: Section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act (BHC Act) (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)); section 10(b) of the Homeowners’ Loan Act, (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2)); section 165 of the DoddFrank Act, (12 U.S.C. 5365)(IHCs only); sections 8 and 13 of the International Banking Act (12 U.S.C. 3106, 3108); and section 618 of the Dodd-Frank Act, (12 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Jul 17, 2017 Jkt 241001 U.S.C. 1850a).

Overall, the Federal Reserve does not consider these data to be confidential. However, a respondent may request confidential treatment pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), (b)(6), (b)(8)).

Proposal To Approve Under OMB Delegated Authority the Extension for 
Three Years, With Revision, of the Following Information Collections

    1. Report title: Financial Statements of U.S. Nonbank Subsidiaries 
of U.S. Holding Companies and the Abbreviated Financial Statements of 
U.S. Nonbank Subsidiaries of U.S. Holding Companies.
    Agency form number: FR Y-11 and FR Y-11S.
    OMB control number: 7100-0244.
    Frequency: Quarterly and annually.
    Reporters: Holding companies.
    Estimated annual reporting hours: FR Y-11 (quarterly): 17,244; FR 
Y-11 (annual): 1,564; FR Y-11S: 299.
    Estimated average hours per response: FR Y-11 (quarterly): 6.8; FR 
Y-11 (annual): 6.8; FR Y-11S: 1.
    Number of respondents: FR Y-11 (quarterly): 634; FR Y-11 (annual): 
230; FR Y-11S: 299.
    General Description of Report: The FR Y-11 reporting forms collect 
financial information for individual non-functionally regulated U.S. 
nonbank subsidiaries of domestic holding companies (i.e., bank holding 
companies, savings and loan holding companies, securities holding 
companies, and intermediate holding companies). Holding companies file 
the FR Y-11 on a quarterly or annual basis or the FR Y-11S on an annual 
basis, predominantly based on whether the organization meets certain 
asset size thresholds. The FR Y-11 data are used with other holding 
company data to assess the condition of holding companies that are 
heavily engaged in nonbanking activities and to monitor the volume, 
nature, and condition of their nonbanking operations.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board's Legal Division 
has determined that the FR Y-11 series of reports are mandatory and the 
collection of these reports from bank holding companies, savings and 
loan holding companies, securities holding companies, and intermediate 
holding companies (IHCs) is authorized under: Section 5(c) of the Bank 
Holding Company Act (BHC Act) (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)); section 10(b) of the 
Homeowners' Loan Act (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2)); section 165 of the Dodd-
Frank Act (12 U.S.C. 5365)(IHCs only); sections 8 and 13 of the 
International Banking Act (12 U.S.C. 3106, 3108); and section 618 of 
the Dodd-Frank Act, (12 U.S.C. 1850a). Overall, the Federal Reserve 
does not consider these data to be confidential. However, a respondent 
may request confidential treatment pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), 
and (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), 
(b)(6), (b)(8)). The applicability of these exemptions would need to be 
determined on a case-by-case basis.
    Proposed revisions: The Federal Reserve is proposing to revise the 
instructions for Schedule IS and related line item captions on the 
reporting form to remove the term ``extraordinary items'' and replace 
it with ``discontinued operations'' on the Financial Statements of U.S. 
Nonbank Subsidiaries of U.S. Holding Companies (FR Y-11), effective for 
reports submitted on or after October 1, 2017, beginning with the 
reports reflecting the September 30, 2017 report date. This reflects 
ASU No. 2015-01, ``Simplifying Income Statement Presentation by 
Eliminating the Concept of Extraordinary Items,'' issued by the 
Financial Accounting Standards Board in 2015. Additionally, the Federal 
Reserve proposes to replace report form captions and instructions 
referencing ``Loans net of unearned income'' with

``Loans held for investment'' where applicable.

    General Description of Report: The FR 2314 reporting forms collect 
financial information for non-functionally regulated direct or indirect 
foreign subsidiaries of U.S. state member banks (SMBs), Edge and 
agreement corporations, and holding companies (i.e., bank holding 
companies, savings and loan holding companies, securities holding 
companies, and intermediate holding companies). Parent organizations 
(SMBs, Edge and agreement corporations, or holding companies) file the 
FR 2314 on a quarterly or annual basis, or the FR 2314S on an annual 
basis, predominantly based on whether the organization meets certain 
asset size thresholds. The FR 2314 data are used to identify current 
and potential problems at the foreign subsidiaries of U.S. parent 
companies, to monitor the activities of U.S. banking organizations in 
specific countries, and to develop a better understanding of activities 
within the industry, in general, and of individual institutions, in 
particular.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board's Legal Division 
has determined that the FR 2314 series of reports is mandatory and the 
collection of these reports from bank holding companies, savings and 
loan holding companies, securities holding companies, and intermediate 
holding companies (IHCs) is authorized under: Section 5(c) of the Bank 
Holding Company Act (BHC Act) (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)); section 10(b) of the 
Homeowners' Loan Act, (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2)); section 165 of the Dodd-
Frank Act, (12 U.S.C. 5365)(IHCs only); sections 8 and 13 of the 
International Banking Act (12 U.S.C. 3106, 3108); and section 618 of 
the Dodd-Frank Act, (12 U.S.C. 1850a). Collection of information from 
non-functionally regulated direct or indirect foreign subsidiaries of 
U.S. state member banks, Edge and agreement corporations filing the FR 
2314 series of reports is authorized under sections 9(6), 25(7) and 
25A(17) of the Federal Reserve Act, (12 U.S.C. 324, 602, and 625), 
respectively. Overall, the Federal Reserve does not consider these data 
to be confidential. However, a respondent may request confidential 
treatment pursuant to sections (b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(8) of the 
Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), (b)(6), (b)(8)). The 
applicability of these exemptions would need to be determined on a 
case-by-case basis.
