The FDIC will host a free telephone seminar to discuss prudent commercial real estate (CRE) loan workouts and related accounting issues, including the treatment for troubled debt restructurings (TDRs). The seminar will be held from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. EST on December 15, 2011. Employees of all FDIC-supervised institutions are invited to participate.
Statement of Applicability to Institutions with Total Assets under $1 Billion: This Financial Institution Letter is available to all FDIC-supervised financial institutions.
The FDIC recognizes that prudent CRE workouts are often in the best interest of financial institutions and creditworthy CRE borrowers.
Financial institutions and borrowers face significant challenges when dealing with diminished operating cash flows, depreciated collateral values, or prolonged sale and rental absorption periods.
Financial institutions engaging in workout activities have raised questions regarding CRE workouts and the related accounting issues, including the treatment for TDRs.
The seminar will consist of a short discussion regarding the CRE-related issues raised by financial institutions, followed by a question-and-answer period.
Participants are encouraged to submit questions in advance to RAC@FDIC.gov with CRE Workouts or CRE Accounting in the subject line.
Financial institution officers and employees wishing to participate in this free telephone seminar should dial 888-946-8383 and enter pass code 2915837# to join the presentation 30 minutes before the 1:00 p.m. EST start time.
