Reporting of Trust Preferred Securities—Example

The following is an example of TPS reporting with appropriate dollar amounts carried throughout the FR Y-9LP, FR Y-9C and FR Y-11, upon establishing the trust. Line items are as of the March 2006 reporting period. The example below includes:

  • TPS issued by the nonbank subsidiary (“NBS”) is equal to 10,000.
  • Common stock issued by the nonbank (purchased by the parent) equals 300.
  • Subordinated debt issued by the parent to the nonbank equals 10,300. (In many cases, the equity portion is financed and included in the subordinated debt.)
  • The BHC uses the funds for a $10,000 capital injection into its bank subsidiary(s).
  • Quarterly interest paid on the subordinated debt equals 15.
  • Dividends declared to investors (i.e., preferred stock portion) by the nonbank subsidiary equals 13.
  • Dividends declared to the BHC (i.e., common stock portion) by nonbank subsidiary equals 2.

If the subsidiary issuing TPS is not consolidated (as per FIN 46):

FR Y-9LP
PI-1b1 = 2 (Report only if the NBS declares dividends on its common stock)
PI-2d = 15
PI memo 4 = 15
PI-A, Part II, line 3 = 300 for NBS investment (additional 10,000 for capital injection)
PI-A, Part III, line 3 = 10,300 (upon issuance of subordinated debt)
PC-A1a1 and PC-5 (increases by 10,000 upon capital injection into bank subsidiary(s))
PC-A2a1 = 300
PC-18b = 10,300
PC-B5b = 10,300
PC-B15a-f = Do not report (since subsidiary is not consolidated)
PC-B16 = 10,000 (amount that is “directly related”—or “equal” to—amount of TPS issued)

FR Y-9C
HI-2e = 15
HI-5l = 2 (report only if the NBS declares dividends on its common stock)
HC-8 = 300
HC-19b = 10,300
HC-R6b = 10,000 (Note: 1) When deconsolidated, it is subordinated debt that is reported on this line; 2) The investment in the trust portion of the subordinated debt does not qualify for Tier 1 capital treatment; 3) As before FIN 46, the amount may be less due to Tier 1 capital limits. Please see instructions.)
HC-R16 = 0 (if all qualifies for Tier 1; otherwise, report Tier II portion here)
HC-R42, Column B = 300


FR Y-11
IS-1b = 15
IS-A3 = 10,300
(upon issuance)
IS-A4 = 15
IS-A7 = 10,300
BS-9 = 10,300
BS-14 = 15
(if dividend declared is not immediately paid)
BS-18a = 10,300
BS-memo 8a = 10,300
BS-memo13 = 10,000

If the subsidiary issuing TPS is consolidated (statements issued prior to adoption of FIN 46), the following line items would be reported differently as shown below:

FR Y-9LP
PC-B15a = 10,300
PC-B15c = 15
PC-B15f = 1

FR Y-9C
HI-5l = 0
HC-8 = 0 (since the trust is a consolidated subsidiary)
HC-19b = 10,000
HC-R42, Column B = 0 (since the trust is a consolidated subsidiary)

FR Y-11
Note: The FR Y-11 is not affected by consolidation or deconsolidation.

Reporting of Trust Preferred Securities
(FR Y-9SP and FR Y-11S)

The following is line item reporting guidance for the FR Y-9SP and FR Y-11S reporting instructions for subsidiaries issuing trust preferred securities and the bank holding company2. Line items are as of the June 2005 (FR Y-9SP) and December 2005 (FR Y-11S) reporting periods.

Nonbank subsidiary (NBS) issues trust preferred securities (TPS) to investors (and establishment of the trust)

FR Y-9SP

- SC-5a “Equity Investment in Nonbank Subsidiary”

FR Y-11S

- 4c “Equity Capital”

The proceeds from securities are lent to parent BHC
FR Y-9SP - SC-14b “Balances Due to Nonbank Subsidiaries” (Includes any accrued interest.)
- SC-M13 “Notes Payable to Subs that Issue TPS” (Report only the TPS portion.)
- SC-M17a, SC-M17c and SC-M17e (Complete only if the trust subsidiary is consolidated. Note: The majority of TPS subsidiaries are now deconsolidated as per FIN 46.)
FR Y-11S - 4b “Total Assets”

If the proceeds are used by the BHC to inject capital into its bank subsidiary(s)
(Note: These items would be impacted additionally if the proceeds are injected/invested into the bank subsidiary(s))

FR Y-9SP

- SC-4a “Equity investment in bank subsidiary(s)”
BHC pays interest to NBS on balances due to NBS
FR Y-9SP - SI-7 “Other Expense”
- SI-memo item 3, “Interest Expense Paid to Special-Purpose Subsidiaries that Issue Trust Preferred Securities”
FR Y-11S - 4a “Net Income”
If BHC receives dividend income, if declared, from NBS common stock
(Note: these items apply only if dividend is declared on common stock)
FR Y-9SP - SI-2a “Dividend Income from Nonbank Subsidiary”
- SC-5 “Loans & Advances to and Receivables Due from Nonbank Subsidiary(s)” (Include dividends declared but not yet paid)
FR Y-11S - 4c “Equity Capital” (Usually unchanged after formation; usually the net income received and the dividends paid offset one another.)

Reporting of Trust Preferred Securities—Example

The following is an example of TPS reporting with appropriate dollar amounts carried throughout the FR Y-9SP and FR Y-11S. Line items are as of the June 2005 (FR Y-9SP) and December 2005 (FR Y-11S) reporting periods.

In this example,

  • TPS issued by the nonbank subsidiary (“NBS”) is equal to 3,000.
  • Common stock issued by the nonbank (purchased by the parent) equals 90.
  • Subordinated debt issued by the parent to the nonbank equals 3,090. (In many cases, the equity portion is financed and included in the subordinated debt.)
  • The BHC uses the funds for a $3,000 capital injection into its bank subsidiary(s).
  • Quarterly interest paid on the subordinated debt equals 5.
  • Dividends declared to investors (i.e., preferred stock portion) by the nonbank subsidiary equals 4.
  • Dividends declared to the BHC (i.e., common stock portion) by nonbank subsidiary equals 1.

If subsidiary issuing TPS would not be consolidated (as per FIN 46):

FR Y-9SP
SI-2a = 1 (report only if the NBS declares dividents on its common stock)
SI-7 = 5
SI-M-3 = 5
SC-4a (increases by 3,000 upon capital injection into bank subsidiary(s))
SC-5a = 90
SC-5c = 1
(report common stock dividends declared but not paid)
SC-14b = 3,090
SC-M13 = 3,000
(amount that is “directly related”—or “equal” to—amount of TPS issued)
SC-M17a-f = Do not report (because the TPS subsidiary is not consolidated)

FR Y-11S
4a = 5
4b = 3,090
4c = 3,090

For financial statements (prior to adoption of FIN 46) where the subsidiary issuing TPS would be consolidated:

FR Y-9SP
SI-2a = 1 (report only if the NBS declares dividends on its common stock)
SI-7 = 5
SI-M-3 = 5
SC-5a = 90
SC-5c = 1 (report common stock dividends declared but not paid)
SC-14b = 3,090
SC-M13 = 3,000
(amount that is “directly related”—or “equal” to—amount of TPS issued)
SC-M17a = 3,090
SC-M17c = 5
SC-M17e = 1

FR Y-11S
4a = 5
4b = 3,090
4c = 3,090

1 Bank holding companies must file the FR Y-11 for each trust that meets the definition of subsidiary per Regulation Y and meets the reporting criteria for filing the FR Y-11. Please refer to the FR Y-11 instructions on http://www.federalreserve.gov/boarddocs/reportforms/ to determine qualifications for filing. Deconsolidation has no impact on the filing requirement for the FR Y-11 or the reporting of the nonbank's trust preferred transaction.

2 Bank holding companies must file the FR Y-11S for each trust that meets the definition of subsidiary per Regulation Y and meets the reporting criteria for filing the FR Y-11S. Please refer to the FR Y-11S instructions on http://www.federalreserve.gov/boarddocs/reportforms/ to determine qualifications for filing. Deconsolidation has no impact on the filing requirement for the FR Y-11S or the reporting of the TPS transaction on the FR Y-11S.
