  • 42 Failed Bank transactions during March and April 2010, of which 4 failed banks did not have an acquirer.

Interested in Bidding?

  • Banks can use FDICconnect to provide M&A contact information for invitations to bid occurs

    • Banks may complete a survey to record their areas of geographic interest

    • Submitting geographic preferences does not imply that a bank will be notified or all potential failing institutions in that state.

  • Banks may also send an email to provide contact information to [email protected]

Bid List Criteria

  • Supervisory Criteria

    • Healthy, well capitalized Institutions

    • No Compliance, CRA, BSA or Anti-Money Laundering Issues

  • Total Asset Size & Geographic Criteria

    • Total asset size threshold established for invitation is roughly double core deposits of failing bank when bidder is in geographic proximity to failing bank

    • Larger total asset size requirements when bidder is located in other states

    • Bidders may express preferences for invitation by state

Bid List Criteria Example

  • Failing bank located in “X” State with $100 million in Total Deposits, $20 million in Brokered Deposits

  • Bid List Criteria Used:

    • Insured financial institutions in “X” State with at least $160 million in total assets (roughly double core deposits of failing bank)

    • Insured financial institutions in contiguous states with at least $300 million in total assets (roughly double criteria used above for bidders located farther away from failing bank)

    • Insured institutions nationwide with at least $400 million in total assets that have expressed an interest in acquiring institutions in “X” state.

  • Criteria used will vary from project to project based on characteristics of potentially failing bank, time available for marketing, and other factors.

Marketing via IntraLinks

  • Marketing Process starts with email to Prospective Bidders inviting them to IntraLinks for a specific resolution project

Marketing: Transaction Structures

Whole Bank with Loss Share

  • “Whole Bank” is a misnomer

  • Transfers assets (including loans, ORE, securities) to Assuming Bank unless items are specifically excluded

  • Transfers related, bank-owned, businesses (Credit Cards, Safe Deposit Box, Trust, Acquired Subsidiaries, etc.)

  • Franchise acquisitions can be for All Deposits or Insured Deposits Only

  • FDIC offers up to 80% credit loss coverage in transactions with Loss Sharing, except in transactions where the assets of the Failed Banks are $500 million or more (“Large Loss Sharing Transactions”). In Large Loss Sharing Transactions there are three loss tranches. The 1st and 3rd tranches provide up to 80% credit loss coverage but the 2nd tranche is normally a fixed percentage ranging from 0 to 30% in credit loss coverage.

Typically Excluded Assets

  • Bank Premises (offered under Separate 90-Day Options)

  • D&O Liability Claims

  • Prepaid Regulatory Assessments

  • Tax Receivables

  • Loss Reserves (General and Specific)

  • Private Label Asset Backed Securities

  • Assets that may be involved in fraud

What is Loss Share (LS)?

  • Receiver & Assuming Bank share in losses & recoveries on Loss Share assets (80%/20%) unless Assuming Bank’s Bid provides that Receiver’s share is less than 80% or it’s a Large Loss Share Transaction (i.e., Receiver’s credit loss is fixed at a lower percentage on the 2nd loss tranche)

  • Generally 50/50 split between the Receiver and Assuming Bank on recoveries of fully charged off assets of the Failed Bank

  • Applies to loans, ORE & (infrequently) certain securities

  • Single Family LS – 10 year term

  • Commercial LS – 5 year term + 3 years for recoveries only

  • Cannot (currently) obtain loss share without a deposit franchise

What is Loss Share? – Cont.

  • Permits Assuming Bank to formulate bid to recover all or portions of at least the following (subject to competitive conditions):

    • credit losses (Assuming Bank’s percentage of loss share, generally 20%)

    • Future income statement vulnerabilities from acquisition of impaired ORE/Loans

    • Asset management expenses not otherwise reimbursable under the Loss Share

    • Other

WBwLS – Bid Format

Type of Deposits Assumed (all/insured)

Deposit Premium Bid (stated as a % of core deposits - All brokered, CDARS and listing service deposits excluded from calculation).

Asset Premium/(Discount Bid (stated as a positive or negative dollar amount).

Loss Share Percentage – 80% Receiver and 20% Assuming Bank unless Assuming Bank decreases Receiver’s Percentage on Bid Form (or in the case of Large Loss Sharing Transactions (assets of $500 million or more), Receiver’s loss share percentage is up to 80% on bid tranches 1 and 3 and generally fixed between 0 and 30% on tranche 2)

Value Appreciation Instrument (optional)


Type of Loss Share Bids

  • Aggressive

  • Conservative

  • Other

Loss Share Transaction Documents

  • Type of Documents

    • P&A Agreement

    • Single Family Loss Share Agreement

    • Commercial (Non-Single Family) Loss Share Agreement

  • Certain Key Provisions in Transaction Documents

    • FDIC as Receiver (not in its corporate capacity) is the party to the Agreements. FDIC corporate only guarantees indemnification obligations of the Receiver.

    • Consumer Loans not covered by loss share

    • Neither investment in nor loans to or assets of an acquired subsidiary are covered by loss share

    • If Assuming Bank or its holding company is sold (including by asset sale or otherwise), or Assuming Bank or its holding company experiences a more than 1/3 change in ownership in a merger or consolidation or a change in control by sale of shares by shareholders, the Receiver must consent to the transaction to preserve loss sharing.

    • Mistake in complying with Permitted Advance and/or Permitted Amendment Provisions of Commercial Loss Share Agreement results in forfeiture of FDIC loss coverage with respect to the affected loan.

    • True - Up Payment to FDIC

Closing Process when Bidding under the Whole Bank with Loss Share

  • At Closing, FDIC Pro Forma –

    • Prepares balance sheet of acquired assets and assumed liabilities at book value after reversal of loan reserves with selected investments valued at fair market value

    • Net of same is “Equity Adjustment (EA)”

    • Then nets EA with asset premium/discount bid and deposit premium bid

      • If result is positive, Assuming Bank will wire the FDIC that amount on first business day following bank closing

      • If result is negative, FDIC wires the Assuming Bank amount on first business day following bank closing

Loss Share Bid Example

  • Bid

    • All Deposits

    • Deposit Premium of 1% (core deposits)

    • Asset Discount of $11 million

  • Assumptions

    • Acquired assets minus assumed liabilities $1 million

    • Core Deposits $200 million

Loss Share Bid Example – Cont.

  • The calculation of the initial wire would be (in 000s):

  • Thus the FDIC would pay the Assuming Bank $8 million on

    the first business day after bank closing

Equity Adjustment 1,000

Franchise bid:

Franchise %1.0%

Core deposits 200,000

Total 2,000 2,000

Asset premium (discount) bid: (11,000) (11,000)

Total (8,000)

Closing Procedures

  • Prior to bank closing, the FDIC and the Assuming Bank will execute the transaction documents.

  • At bank closing, the Chartering Authority will close the Failed Bank and appoint the FDIC, Receiver.

  • FDIC will have personnel available to cover the branches and they will coordinate coverage with the Assuming Bank.
