Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation March 2012 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Proposed Guidance on Leveraged Lending
Document Number: 2012-7620
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-03-30
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
The OCC, Board, and the FDIC (collectively, the Agencies) request comment on proposed guidance on leveraged lending (proposed guidance). The proposed guidance outlines high-level principles related to safe and sound leveraged lending activities, including underwriting considerations, assessing and documenting enterprise value, risk management expectations for credits awaiting distribution, stress testing expectations and portfolio management, and risk management expectations. This proposed guidance would apply to all Federal Reserve-supervised, FDIC-supervised, and OCC-supervised financial institutions substantively engaged in leveraged lending activities. The number of community banking organizations with substantial exposure to leveraged lending is very small; therefore the Agencies generally expect that community banking organizations largely would be unaffected by this guidance.
Assessments, Large Bank Pricing
Document Number: 2012-7268
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-03-27
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
The FDIC proposes to amend its regulations to revise some of the definitions used to determine assessment rates for large and highly complex insured depository institutions. The FDIC believes these proposed amendments will result in more consistent reporting, better reflect risk to the FDIC, significantly reduce reporting burden, and satisfy many concerns voiced by the banking industry.
Enforcement of Subsidiary and Affiliate Contracts by the FDIC as Receiver of a Covered Financial Company
Document Number: 2012-7051
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-03-27
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
The FDIC is proposing a rule (``Proposed Rule''), with request for comments, that implements section 210(c)(16) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the ``Dodd-Frank Act'' or the ``Act''), codified at 12 U.S.C. section 5390(c)(16), which permits the Corporation, as receiver for a financial company whose failure would pose a significant risk to the financial stability of the United States (a ``covered financial company''), to enforce contracts of subsidiaries or affiliates of the covered financial company despite contract clauses that purport to terminate, accelerate, or provide for other remedies based on the insolvency, financial condition or receivership of the covered financial company. As a condition to maintaining these subsidiary contracts in full force and effect, the Corporation as receiver must either: transfer any supporting obligations of the covered financial company that back the obligations of the subsidiary or affiliate under the contract (along with all assets and liabilities that relate to those supporting obligations) to a bridge financial company or qualified third-party transferee by the statutory one-business-day deadline; or provide adequate protection to such contract counterparties. The Proposed Rule sets forth the scope and effect of the authority granted under section 210(c)(16), clarifies the conditions and requirements applicable to the receiver, addresses requirements for notice to certain affected counterparties, and defines key terms.
Intra-Agency Appeal Process: Guidelines for Appeals of Material Supervisory Determinations and Guidelines for Appeals of Deposit Insurance Assessment Determinations
Document Number: 2012-7049
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-03-23
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
On March 20, 2012, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (``FDIC'') Board of Directors (``Board'') adopted revised Guidelines for Appeals of Material Supervisory Determinations (``SARC Guidelines'') and also adopted revised Guidelines for Appeals of Deposit Insurance Assessment Determinations (``AAC Guidelines''). These revisions are technical and ministerial and were made to reflect changes in the organization of the FDIC's Board, of its offices and divisions, and in the categories of institutions that it supervises. In addition, both guidelines have been amended to effect limited and minor language changes.
