The FDIC is requesting OMB approval to renew the following information collection:
Title: Application for Consent to Reduce or Retire Capital.
OMB Number: 3064-0079.
Form Number: None.
Estimated Number of applications: 64.
Burden per application: 1 hour.
Total annual burden: 64 hours.
General Description of Collection: This collection requires insured state nonmember banks that propose to change their capital structure to submit an application containing information about the proposed change in order to obtain FDIC's consent to reduce or retire capital. The requirements are set forth in section 18(i) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1828(i)) and Part 303 of the FDIC's regulations (12 CFR 303.241). The FDIC evaluates the information contained in the letter application in relation to statutory considerations and makes a decision to grant or to withhold consent. The statutory considerations include the financial history and condition of the bank; the adequacy of its capital structure; its future earnings prospects; the general character and fitness of its management; the convenience and needs of the community to be served; and, whether or not its corporate powers are consistent with the purpose of the Act.
