Changes to Exchange Act Registration Requirements To Implement Title V and Title VI of the Jobs Act
We are proposing amendments to our rules to implement Title V and Title VI of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (the ``JOBS Act''). The proposed amendments would revise rules adopted under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ``Exchange Act'') to reflect the new, higher thresholds for registration, termination of registration and suspension of reporting that were set forth in the JOBS Act. The proposed rules also would apply the thresholds specified for banks and bank holding companies to savings and loan holding companies. In addition, the proposed amendments would revise the definition of ``held of record'' in Exchange Act Rule 12g5-1, in accordance with the JOBS Act, to exclude certain securities held by persons who received them pursuant to employee compensation plans and establish a non-exclusive safe harbor for determining whether securities are ``held of record'' for purposes of registration under Exchange Act Section 12(g).

Credit Risk Retention
The OCC, Board, FDIC, Commission, FHFA, and HUD (the agencies) are adopting a joint final rule (the rule, or the final rule) to implement the credit risk retention requirements of section 15G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as added by section 941 of the Dodd- Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Act or Dodd- Frank Act). Section 15G generally requires the securitizer of asset- backed securities to retain not less than 5 percent of the credit risk of the assets collateralizing the asset-backed securities. Section 15G includes a variety of exemptions from these requirements, including an exemption for asset-backed securities that are collateralized exclusively by residential mortgages that qualify as ``qualified residential mortgages,'' as such term is defined by the agencies by rule.
