I. Grounds for Actions Taken in This Order
Receivership: Grounds for Appointment of FDIC as Receiver
The Director, upon consideration of the administrative record, and for the reasons set forth in the supporting legal and supervisory memoranda contained in the administrative record from offices within the OTS, finds and determines that:
(a) The Association's assets are less than its obligations to its creditors and others, including members of the Association;
(b) The Association has substantially depleted its assets or earnings due to unsafe or unsound practices;
(c) The Association is in an unsafe or unsound condition to transact business;
(d) The Association has incurred losses that have depleted all of its capital, and there is no reasonable prospect for the Association to become adequately capitalized without Federal assistance;
(e) The Association's unsafe and unsound practices and condition are likely to seriously prejudice the interests of its depositors and the deposit insurance fund;
(f) The Association is undercapitalized as defined in 12 U.S.C. 1831o(b), and has no reasonable prospect of becoming adequately capitalized, has failed to become adequately capitalized when required to do so under 12 U.S.C. 1831o(f)(2)(A), and failed to submit an acceptable capital restoration plan within the time prescribed under 12 U.S.C. 1831o(e)(2)(D); and
(g) The Association is critically undercapitalized, as defined in 12 U.S.C. 1831o(b) and otherwise has substantially insufficient capital.
The Director, therefore, has determined that each of the above grounds for the appointment of a receiver for the Association exist under section 5(d)(2) of the Home Owners' Loan Act (“HOLA”) (12 U.S.C. 1464(d)(2)) and section 11(c)(5) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (“FDIA”) (12 U.S.C. 1821(c)(5)).
II. Actions Ordered or Approved: Appointment of a Receiver
The Director hereby appoints the FDIC as Receiver for the Association for the purpose of liquidation, pursuant to section 5(d)(2) of the HOLA and section 11(c)(6)(B) of the FDIA (12 U.S.C. 1821(c)(6)(B)).
