Estimated annual burden hours: FR XX (Section 251.3(e))–6; FR XX (Sections 251.4(b) and (c))–20; FR XX– 1–74. General description of report: The Board’s Regulation XX—Concentration Limit (12 CFR part 251) implements section 14 of the BHC Act,1 which establishes a financial sector concentration limit that generally prohibits a financial company from merging or consolidating with, or otherwise acquiring, another company if the resulting company’s liabilities upon consummation would exceed 10 percent of the aggregate liabilities of all financial companies (a covered acquisition). Under section 14 of the BHC Act and Regulation XX, a financial company means (1) an insured depository institution, (2) a bank holding company, (3) a savings and loan holding company, (4) any other company that controls an insured depository institution, (5) a nonbank financial company designated by the Council for supervision by the Board, or (6) a foreign bank or company that is treated as a bank holding company for purposes of the BHC Act. Regulation XX includes certain reporting requirements that apply to financial companies, and the FR XX–1 collects information from certain financial companies that do not otherwise report consolidated financial information to the Board or another Federal banking agency. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR XX and the FR XX–1 are authorized by section 14 of the BHC Act, which, in relevant part, expressly authorizes the Board to issue ‘‘regulations implementing this section’’ and ‘‘interpretations or guidance regarding the application of this section to an individual financial company or to financial companies in general’’ (12 U.S.C. 1852(d)). The Board also has the authority to require reports from bank holding companies (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)), savings and loan holding companies (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b) and (g)), state member banks (12 U.S.C. 248(a) and 324), and state-licensed branches and agencies of foreign banks, other than insured branches (12 U.S.C. 3105(c)(2)).

If a respondent requests confidential treatment, the Board will determine whether the information is entitled to confidential treatment on a case-by-case basis. To the extent a respondent submits nonpublic commercial or financial information in connection with the FR XX or FR XX– 1, which is both customarily and actually treated as private by the respondent, the respondent may request confidential treatment pursuant to exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). The entity should separately designate such information as ‘‘confidential commercial information’’ or ‘‘confidential financial information’’ as appropriate, and the Board will treat such designated information as confidential to the extent permitted by law, including the FOIA. Current actions: On August 21, 2020, the Board published a notice in the Federal Register (85 FR 51713) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of the FR XX and FR XX–1. The Board proposes to revise the FR XX to account for the reporting provision located at section 251.3(e). This provision of the regulation implements the Council’s recommendation to allow a financial company that does not use U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) to use another appropriate accounting standard or method of estimation for determining compliance with section 14 of the BHC Act, while ensuring that the Board has an opportunity to review the appropriateness of the company’s proposed approach. The Board proposes to revise the due date for the FR XX–1 report. The FR XX–1 implements section 251.6(a) of Regulation XX, which requires a financial company that does not otherwise report consolidated financial information to the Board or another Federal banking agency to report to the Board its consolidated liabilities as of the previous calendar year-end. Regulation XX provides that this report must be submitted by March 31 of each year. However, the instructions to the FR XX–1 currently state that the report must be submitted 90 calendar days after the December 31 as of date or, if the submission deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, the first business day after the weekend or holiday. Under these instructions, the FR XX–1 could be due prior to March 31 (in a leap year) or after March 31 (if March 31 falls on a weekend or VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:25 Dec 10, 2020 Jkt 253001 holiday). In order to ensure that the due date of the FR XX–1 coincides with the date set forth in Regulation XX, the Board proposes to revise the FR XX–1 so that it is due by March 31 of the year following the December 31 as of date. The comment period for this notice expired on October 20, 2020. The Board did not receive any comments. The revisions will be implemented as proposed.

Respondents: Bank holding companies (BHCs), savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs), U.S. intermediate holding companies (IHCs), and financial holding companies (FHCs) that hold merchant banking investments that are approaching the end of the holding periods permissible under Regulation Y.1 Number of respondents: FR Y–12 quarterly, 22; FR Y–12 semiannual, 7; and FR Y–12A, 91.

General description of report: The mandatory FR Y–12 report collects information from certain domestic bank 1 In 2012, the Board indicated that it would require supervised securities holding companies (‘‘SHCs’’) to file the FR Y–12 and FR Y–12A reports. 77 FR 32881, 32883 (June 4, 2012). However, no such revisions were ever made to include SHCs as respondents on either report. Upon reflection, the Board has determined that it would not be appropriate at this time to add supervised SHCs to the respondent panel for the FR Y–12 or FR Y–12A reports. A supervised SHCs would not be subject to the restrictions on nonbanking activities that limit the investments of other holding companies. Therefore, any information gathered about SHCs’ investments on the FR Y–12 would be of limited use, and would not be comparable to data gathered from other holding companies. Moreover, adding supervised SHCs to the FR Y–12 reporting panel would require significant revisions to the FR Y–12 instructions in order to account for the differences in legal treatment between supervised SHCs and the other respondents. Such revisions could lead to confusion among current FR Y–12 reporters. With respect to the FR Y–12A, the Board is not proposing to add supervised SHCs to the respondent panel because supervised SHCs are not restricted in their ability to make investments in nonfinancial companies, and their investments are not subject to the merchant bank holding periods that apply to FHC investments.

Concentration Limit (12 CFR part 251) implements section 14 of the BHC

generally prohibits a financial company from merging or consolidating

company's liabilities upon consummation would exceed 10 percent of the

acquisition). Under section 14 of the BHC Act and Regulation XX, a 
financial company means (1) an insured depository institution, (2) a 
bank holding company, (3) a savings and loan holding company, (4) any 
other company that controls an insured depository institution, (5) a 
nonbank financial company designated by the Council for supervision by 
the Board, or (6) a foreign bank or company that is treated as a bank

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR XX and the FR XX-1 
are authorized by section 14 of the BHC Act, which, in relevant part, 
expressly authorizes the Board to issue ``regulations implementing this 
section'' and ``interpretations or guidance regarding the application 
of this section to an individual financial company or to financial 
companies in general'' (12 U.S.C. 1852(d)). The Board also has the 
authority to require reports from bank holding companies (12 U.S.C.

(g)), state member banks (12 U.S.C. 248(a) and 324), and state-licensed

    Individual respondents may request that information submitted to 
the Board through the FR XX or FR XX-1 be kept confidential. If a 
respondent requests confidential treatment, the Board will determine 
whether the information is entitled to confidential treatment on a 
case-by-case basis. To the extent a respondent submits nonpublic 
commercial or financial information in connection with the FR XX or FR 
XX-1, which is both customarily and actually treated as private by the 
respondent, the respondent may request confidential treatment pursuant 
to exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (5 U.S.C. 
552(b)(4)). The entity should separately designate such information as 
``confidential commercial information'' or ``confidential financial 
information'' as appropriate, and the Board will treat such designated 
information as confidential to the extent permitted by law, including 
the FOIA.
    Current actions: On August 21, 2020, the Board published a notice 
in the Federal Register (85 FR 51713) requesting public comment for 60 
days on the extension, with revision, of the FR XX and FR XX-1. The 
Board proposes to revise the FR XX to account for the reporting 
provision located at section 251.3(e). This provision of the regulation 
implements the Council's recommendation to allow a financial company 
that does not use U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) 
to use another appropriate accounting standard or method of estimation 
for determining compliance with section 14 of the BHC Act, while 
ensuring that the Board has an opportunity to review the 
appropriateness of the company's proposed approach. The Board proposes 
to revise the due date for the FR XX-1 report. The FR XX-1 implements 
section 251.6(a) of Regulation XX, which requires a financial company 
that does not otherwise report consolidated financial information to 
the Board or another Federal banking agency to report to the Board its 
consolidated liabilities as of the previous calendar year-end. 
Regulation XX provides that this report must be submitted by March 31 
of each year. However, the instructions to the FR XX-1 currently state 
that the report must be submitted 90 calendar days after the December 
31 as of date or, if the submission deadline falls on a weekend or 
holiday, the first business day after the weekend or holiday. Under 
these instructions, the FR XX-1 could be due prior to March 31 (in a 
leap year) or after March 31 (if March 31 falls on a weekend or 
holiday). In order to ensure that the due date of the FR XX-1 coincides 
with the date set forth in Regulation XX, the Board proposes to revise 
the FR XX-1 so that it is due by March 31 of the year following the 
December 31 as of date. The comment period for this notice expired on 
October 20, 2020. The Board did not receive any comments. The revisions 
will be implemented as proposed.
