1. Report title: Request for Extension of Time to Dispose of Assets Acquired in Satisfaction of Debts Previously Contracted

OMB control number: 7100-0129

General description of report: This information collection is mandatory [12 U.S.C. §§ 1842(a) and 1843(c)(2)] and may be given confidential treatment upon request [5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(4)].
Abstract: Bank holding companies (BHCs) that have acquired voting securities or assets through foreclosure in the ordinary course of collecting a debt previously contracted (DPC) generally are required to submit the extension request annually for shares or assets that have been held beyond two years from the acquisition date. The extension request does not have a required format; BHCs submit the information in a letter. The letter contains information on the progress made to dispose of such shares or assets and requests permission for an extension to hold them. This extension request is required pursuant to the Board's authority under the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956 (the Act), as amended and Regulation Y. The Federal Reserve uses the information to fulfill its statutory obligation to supervise BHCs.
