    CMF Announces More Measures to Mitigate Impact of COVID-19 Outbreak

    May 13, 2020

    CMF published a circular (No. 2.252) that contains instructions for banking entities regarding COVID-19 loans from the Guarantee Fund for Small and Medium-Size Entrepreneurs (FOGAPE). The instructions will be in force until October 31, 2021. CMF has reported the progress in granting of loans under the FOGAPE COVID-19 program. CMF also released progress in loan installment rescheduling within supervised banks and cooperatives. Additionally, CMF extended the transitional treatment, applicable to provisions required for rescheduling commercial loans, from four to six months. CMF is also consulting on a regulatory amendment to simplify the registration process of long-term debt securities, with the consultation closing on May 22, 2020.

    Instructions for FOGAPE 

    The key topics covered in the circular include exceptional measures for the treatment of provisions for loans in installments of the commercial portfolio, classification of debtors and calculation of arrears, establishment of procedures for checking debtor eligibility, and regular submissions of information to CMF. The circular details the information that the institutions must submit to CMF to adequately monitor the evolution of loan granting, rates registration, and the main features of these operations. For loans granted under the FOGAPE COVID-19 program, the provisions of the debtor's rescheduled installment loans, which meet the established conditions, may remain unchanged during the grace or rescheduling period granted by the financial institution. The maximum period is six months. This measure facilitates the conditions for providing financing and safeguards compliance with the prudential aspects of credit risk, by all financial institutions participating in the FOGAPE COVID-19 program.

    Consultation on Long-Term Debt Securities

    The amendment aims to facilitate financing options for companies in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic by easing the registration process of long-term debt securities. CMF also published a regulatory report evaluating the impact of the proposal, along with a regulatory brochure, frequently asked questions, and presentations on the proposal. The consultation process will be open until May 22, 2020. This eliminates the obligation to send for registration the copies of notices and communications that must be sent to shareholders on the occasion of a capital increase or the issue of convertible bonds and the prospectus. The proposal streamlines the requirements for registration of long-term debt securities, temporarily eliminating the obligation to include the certain records in the application for registration.
