FED and FDIC announced that they have extended the next resolution plan filing deadline for 14 domestic firms by one year to December 31, 2019. The change in deadline is intended to allow additional time for the agencies to provide feedback to the firms on their last submissions and for the firms to produce their next plan submissions.
Resolution plans, required by the Dodd-Frank Act and commonly known as living wills, describe the strategy of an institution for rapid and orderly resolution under bankruptcy in the event of material financial distress or failure. The 14 domestic firms are: Ally Financial Inc., American Express Company, BB&T Corporation, Capital One Financial Corporation, Citizens Financial Group, Fifth Third Bancorp, Huntington Bancshares Incorporated, KeyCorp, M&T Bank Corporation, Northern Trust Corporation, Regions Financial Corporation, SunTrust Banks, Inc., The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc., and U.S. Bancorp.
Pursuant to the Economic Growth, Regulatory Reform, and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA), firms with less than USD 100 billion in consolidated assets are no longer subject to resolution plan requirements. Separately, pursuant to EGRRCPA, in the next 18 months, FED will determine which firms with more than USD 100 billion but less than USD 250 billion in consolidated assets will be subject to the resolution plan requirement moving forward. The agencies will announce further actions as a result of the new law at a later date.
