any asset of the Failed Bank retained or acquired pursuant to this Agreement by the Receiver, the Receiver agrees, at the request of the Corporation, to join with the Corporation in a petition to remove the action to the United States District Court for the proper district. The Receiver agrees to institute, with or without joinder of the Corporation as co-plaintiff, any action with respect to any such retained or acquired asset or any matter connected therewith whenever notice requiring such action shall be given by the Corporation to the Receiver.

 

9.4.                            Payment of Deposits. In the event any depositor does not accept the obligation of the Assuming Institution to pay any Deposit liability of the Failed Bank assumed by the Assuming Institution pursuant to this Agreement and asserts a claim against the Receiver for all or any portion of any such Deposit liability, the Assuming Institution agrees on demand to provide to the Receiver funds sufficient to pay such claim in an amount not in excess of the Deposit liability reflected on the books of the Assuming Institution at the time such claim is made. Upon payment by the Assuming Institution to the Receiver of such amount, the Assuming Institution shall be discharged from any further obligation under this Agreement to pay to any such depositor the amount of such Deposit liability paid to the Receiver.

 

9.5.                            Withheld Payments. At any time, the Receiver or the Corporation may, in its discretion, determine that all or any portion of any deposit balance assumed by the Assuming Institution pursuant to this Agreement does not constitute a “Deposit” (or otherwise, in its discretion, determine that it is the best interest of the Receiver or Corporation to withhold all or any portion of any deposit), and may direct the Assuming Institution to withhold payment of all or any portion of any such deposit balance. Upon such direction, the Assuming Institution agrees to hold such deposit and not to make any payment of such deposit balance to or on behalf of the depositor, or to itself, whether by way of transfer, set-off or otherwise. The Assuming Institution agrees to maintain the “withheld payment” status of any such deposit balance until directed in writing by the Receiver or the Corporation as to its disposition. At the direction of the Receiver or the Corporation, the Assuming Institution shall return all or any portion of such deposit balance to the Receiver or the Corporation, as appropriate, and thereupon the Assuming Institution shall be discharged from any further liability to such depositor with respect to such returned deposit balance. If such deposit balance has been paid to the depositor prior to a demand for return by the Corporation or the Receiver, and payment of such deposit balance had not been previously withheld pursuant to this Section 9.5, the Assuming Institution shall not be obligated to return such deposit balance to the Receiver or the Corporation. The Assuming Institution shall be obligated to reimburse the Corporation or the Receiver, as the case may be, for the amount of any deposit balance or portion thereof paid by the Assuming Institution in contravention of any previous direction to withhold payment of such deposit balance or return such deposit balance the payment of which was withheld pursuant to this Section 9.5.

Nothing in this Article XII shall be construed or deemed to (a) expand or otherwise alter any warranty or disclaimer thereof provided under Section 3.3 or any other provision of this Agreement with respect to, among other matters, the title, value, collectability, genuineness, enforceability, documentation, condition or freedom from liens or encumbrances, of any (i) Asset, or (ii) asset of the Failed Bank purchased by the Assuming Institution subsequent to the execution of this Agreement by the Assuming Institution or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Assuming Institution, or (b) create any warranty not expressly provided under this Agreement with respect thereto.

 

12.4.       Indemnification of Receiver and Corporation. From and after the Bank Closing Date, the Assuming Institution agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Corporation and the Receiver and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents from and against any and all costs, losses, liabilities, expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred in connection with any of the following:

 

(a)           claims based on any and all liabilities or obligations of the Failed Bank assumed by the Assuming Institution pursuant to this Agreement or subsequent to the execution hereof by the Assuming Institution or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Assuming Institution, whether or not any such liabilities subsequently are sold and/or transferred, other than any claim based upon any action or inaction of any Indemnitee as provided in Section 12.1(a)(vii) or (viii);

If the aggregate amount of payments by the Receiver, or the Corporation as guarantor in accordance with Section 12.7, and all Primary Indemnitors with respect to any item of indemnification under this Article XII exceeds the amount payable with respect to such item, such Person being indemnified shall notify the Receiver thereof and, upon the request of the Receiver, shall promptly pay to the Receiver, or the Corporation as appropriate, the amount of the Receiver’s (or Corporation’s) payments to the extent of such excess.

 

12.6.       Criminal Claims. Notwithstanding any provision of this Article XII to the contrary, in the event that any Person being indemnified under this Article XII shall become involved in any criminal action, suit or proceeding, whether judicial, administrative or investigative, the Receiver shall have no obligation hereunder to indemnify such Person for liability with respect to any criminal act or to the extent any costs or expenses are attributable to the defense against the allegation of any criminal act, unless (a) the Person is successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense against any such action, suit or proceeding, or (b) such action, suit or proceeding is terminated without the imposition of liability on such Person.

[Name of Unclaimed Depositor]

[Address of Unclaimed Depositor]

[Anytown, USA]

 

Subject: [XXXXX – Name of Bank

City, State] – In Receivership

 

Dear [Sir/Madam]:

 

As you may know, on [Date: Closing Date], the [Name of Bank (“The Bank”)] was closed and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) transferred The Bank’s accounts to [Name of Acquiring Institution].

 

According to federal law under 12 U.S.C., 1822(e), on [Date: eighteen months from the Closing Date], [Name of Acquiring Institution] must transfer the funds in your account(s) back to the FDIC if you have not claimed your account(s) with [Name of Acquiring Institution]. Based on the records recently supplied to us by [Name of Acquiring Institution], your account(s) currently fall into this category.

 

This letter is your formal Legal Notice that you have until [Date: eighteen months from the Closing Date], to claim or arrange to continue your account(s) with [Name of Acquiring Institution]. There are several ways that you can claim your account(s) at [Name of Acquiring Institution]. It is only necessary for you to take anyone of the following actions in order for your account(s) at [Name of Acquiring Institution] to be deemed claimed. In addition, if you have more than one account, your claim to one account will automatically claim all accounts:

 

1.     Write to [Name of Acquiring Institution] and notify them that you wish to keep your account(s) active with them. Please be sure to include the name of the account(s), the account number(s), the signature of an authorized signer on the account(s), name, and address. [Name of Acquiring Institution] address is:

 

[123 Main Street

Anytown, USA]

 

2.     Execute a new signature card on your account(s), enter into a new deposit agreement with [Name of Acquiring Institution], change the ownership on your account(s), or renegotiate the terms of your certificate of deposit account(s) (if any).

 

3.     Provide [Name of Acquiring Institution] with a change of address form.

 

4.     Make a deposit to or withdrawal from your account(s). This includes writing a check on any account or having an automatic direct deposit credited to or an automatic withdrawal debited from an account.

If you do not want to continue your account(s) with [Name of Acquiring Institution] for any reason, you can withdraw your funds and close your account(s). Withdrawing funds from one or more of your account(s) satisfies the federal law claiming requirement. If you have time deposits, such as certificates of deposit, [Name of Acquiring Institution] can advise you how to withdraw them without being charged an interest penalty for early withdrawal.

 

If you do not claim ownership of your account(s) at [Name of Acquiring Institution by Date: eighteen months from the Closing Date] federal law requires [Name of Acquiring Institution] to return your deposits to the FDIC, which will deliver them as unclaimed property to the State indicated in your address in the Failed Institution’s records. If your address is outside of the United States, the FDIC will deliver the deposits to the State in which the Failed Institution had its main office. 12 U.S.C. § 1822( e). If the State accepts custody of your deposits, you will have 10 years from the date of delivery to claim your deposits from the State. After 10 years you will be permanently barred from claiming your deposits. However, if the State refuses to take custody of your deposits, you will be able to claim them from the FDIC until the receivership is terminated. If you have not claimed your insured deposits before the receivership is terminated, and a receivership may be terminated at any time, all of your rights in those deposits will be barred.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about these items, please contact [Bank Employee] at [Name of Acquiring Institution] by phone at [(XXX) XXX-XXXX].

 

 

Sincerely,

SINGLE FAMILY SHARED-LOSS AGREEMENT

 

A.                                  This Single Family Shared-Loss Agreement and the Exhibits attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference (collectively, the “Agreement”) is made pursuant to and as of the date of that certain Purchase and Assumption Agreement (the “Purchase and Assumption Agreement”) among the Receiver, the Assuming Institution and the Corporation, to which this Agreement is attached.

 

B.                                     This Agreement shall apply only if the Assuming Institution has purchased Shared-Loss Loans (as defined herein) pursuant to the Purchase and Assumption Agreement. Subject to the provisions of this Agreement, it is the intention of the parties that the Receiver and the Assuming Institution shall share certain losses and gains in respect of such Shared-Loss Loans.

 

A G R E E M E N T

 

ARTICLE 1.                                                GENERAL.

 

1.1.                            Purpose. The purpose of this Agreement is to set forth requirements regarding, among other things, management of Shared-Loss Loans by the Assuming Institution and procedures for notices, consents, reporting and payments. In administering the Shared-Loss Loans, the Assuming Institution shall at all times comply with the Management Standards set forth in Article 3.

 

1.2.                            Relationship with Purchase and Assumption Agreement. To the extent that any inconsistencies may arise between the terms of the Purchase and Assumption Agreement and this Agreement with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall control.

(a)                                  Calculation and Method of Payments. Subject to the conditions of this Agreement, the parties shall make the payments set forth in this Article 2. All payments made by a party under this Agreement shall be made by wire transfer.

 

(b)                                 Timing of Payments.

 

(i)                                     Payments by the Receiver under this Article 2 shall be made within thirty (30) days following the date on which the Receiver receives each Monthly Certificate, provided that the Monthly Certificate is complete, accurate, timely and in compliance with the requirements of this Agreement.

 

(ii)                                  Payments by the Assuming Institution under this Article 2 shall be made on or before the due date for each Monthly Certificate.

 

(c)                                  Source of Receiver’s Funds. Payment obligations of the Receiver with respect to this Agreement shall be treated as administrative expenses of the Receiver pursuant to 12 U.S.C §1821(d)(11). To the extent that the Receiver requires funds to make payments relating to Shared-Loss Loans pursuant to this Agreement, the Receiver shall request funds under the Master Loan and Security Agreement between the FDIC in its corporate capacity and the FDIC in its receivership capacity, with respect to any receivership, dated as of May 21, 2009, as amended.

 

2.3.                            Payments Applicable to Shared-Loss Months. For each Shared-Loss Month, pursuant to the applicable Monthly Certificate, one of the payments described at (a) or (b) below shall be made, as appropriate, with respect to Shared-Loss Loans.

 

(a)                                  Covered Loss Payments by the Receiver. The Receiver shall pay to the Assuming Institution the “Covered Loss” for the period, which is an amount equal to:

 

(i)                                     the Applicable Percentage of the sum of:

 

(A)                              the total Monthly Loss Amount for all Shared-Loss Loans; less

 

(B)                                the total monthly Recovery Amount for all Shared-Loss Loans; less

 

(C)                                the total monthly Collections on Fully Charged-Off Assets.

 

(b)                                 Covered Gain Payments by the Assuming Institution. If the result of the calculation in Section 2.3(a) is a negative amount (the “Covered Gain”), the Assuming Institution shall pay such amount to the Receiver.

 

2.4.                            Loss Mitigation, Loan Modification and Loss Calculations.

 

(a)                                  Loss Mitigation Programs. The Assuming Institution shall administer and undertake reasonable and customary loss mitigation efforts and act in accordance with usual and prudent banking practices and the provisions of this Agreement with respect to Shared-Loss

Loans. Within ninety (90) days of bank closing, the Assuming Institution shall submit to the FDIC for approval a written loss mitigation plan. The loss mitigation plan shall be updated annually and submitted to the FDIC. On a quarterly basis the Assuming Institution shall deliver to the FDIC the internal management reports utilized to monitor the status of loan modifications in process for assets on Schedule 4.15A as well as assets that have successfully undergone loan modification under an approved modification program according to the Agreement.

 

(b)                                 Single Family Shared-Loss Loans. For each Single Family Shared-Loss Loan in default or for which a default is reasonably foreseeable, the Assuming Institution shall undertake loss mitigation efforts in accordance with one of the following programs, as amended from time to time, selected by the Assuming Institution in its discretion:

 

(i)                                     FDIC Mortgage Loan Modification Program as set forth in Exhibit 5;

 

(ii)                                  the United States Treasury’s Home Affordable Modification Program Guidelines; or

 

(iii)                               any other modification program approved by the United States Treasury Department, the Corporation, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or any other Federal governmental agency.

 

(c)                                  Other Shared-Loss Loans. For each Shared-Loss Loan which is not a Single Family Shared-Loss Loan and which is in default, or for which a default is reasonably foreseeable, the Assuming Institution shall adopt loss mitigation procedures in accordance with its own Examination Criteria and all applicable laws and regulations and shall undertake loss mitigation efforts substantially similar to loss mitigation efforts with respect to, and without favoring, any assets held by the Assuming Institution or any of its Affiliates that are not Shared-Loss Loans.

 

(d)                                 Loan Modification Guidelines. In undertaking loss mitigation efforts for each Shared-Loss Loan (the method adopted for each Shared-Loss Loan as required by Sections 2.4(b) and 2.4(c) being referred to as the “Modification Guidelines”), the Assuming Institution:

 

(i)                                     shall implement the Modification Guidelines within ninety (90) days following Bank Closing;

 

(ii)                                  may submit claims during the period described in paragraph (i) for payments relating to Shared-Loss Loans under any guidelines which may have been in place at the Failed Bank. If no such guidelines were in place at the Failed Bank, the Assuming Institution may use its own guidelines for submission of such claims;

 

(iii)                               shall, in implementing the Modification Guidelines, (A) consider and document its consideration of foreclosure, loan restructuring, short-sale and any other appropriate methods of loss mitigation and (B) select the method that the Assuming Institution determines will result in the least Loss, based on its estimated calculations. If unemployment or underemployment of the Obligor with respect to a Shared-Loss Loan is the primary cause of default, or of a reasonably foreseeable default, the Assuming

Institution may consider entering into a temporary forbearance plan with the Obligor to reduce loan payments to an affordable level for at least six (6) months; and

 

(iv)                              shall not be required to modify or restructure any Shared-Loss Loan on more than one occasion or to consider any alternatives with respect to any Shared-Loss Loan that was in the process of foreclosure as of the Bank Closing Date if the Assuming Institution considers, and so documents, that a loan modification is not cost-effective pursuant to the standards set forth in  Exhibit 5. In such circumstances, the Assuming Institution may continue such foreclosure measures in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and recover any Foreclosure Loss as provided in this Agreement.

 

(e)                                  Loss Calculations. Losses on Shared-Loss Loans shall be calculated in the form, and determined in accordance with, the methodologies set forth in the respective Exhibits attached to this Agreement as follows:

 

(i)                                     Restructuring Losses shall be determined in accordance with Exhibits 2a(1)-(3);

 

(ii)                                  Deficiency Losses shall be reported as Restructuring Losses and, if applicable, the net present value of a modified Shared-Loss Loan shall be determined in accordance with Exhibits 2a(1)-(3), as applicable;

 

(iii)                               Modification Default Losses shall be determined in accordance with Exhibits 2a(1)-(3), as applicable;

 

(iv)                              Short-Sale Losses shall be determined in accordance with Exhibits 2b(1)-(3);

 

(v)                                 Foreclosure Losses shall be determined in accordance with Exhibits 2c(l)-(3);

 

(vi)                              Home Equity Loan Losses shall be determined in accordance with the charge-off policies of the loan classification criteria employed by the Assuming Institution’s Chartering Authority as set forth in Exhibit 2d(l);

 

(vii)                           Losses, if applicable, on Restructured Loans shall be determined in accordance with Exhibit 2d(2);

 

(viii)                        Loan Sale Losses shall be determined in accordance with Exhibits 2e(l)-(3);

 

(ix)                                Losses on Investor-Owned Residential Loans shall be determined in the same manner as Restructuring Losses. With the consent of the Receiver, Investor-Owned Residential Loans may be restructured under terms different from the standards set forth in Exhibit 5.

2.5.                            True-Up Payment and Calculation.

 

(a)                                  Payment Obligation of the Assuming Institution. If the Assuming Institution’s Bid Amount, as set forth in Article VII of the Purchase and Assumption Agreement, includes an “Asset discount bid” which represents five percent (5%) or more of the purchase price of the Assets determined in accordance with Article III of the Purchase and Assumption Agreement, the Assuming Institution shall pay to the Receiver on the True-Up Date any positive amount resulting from the calculation set forth in Exhibit 2.5.

 

(b)                                 Reporting of Calculation. On or before the True-Up Date the Assuming Institution shall deliver to the Receiver a schedule, signed by the chief executive officer or the chief financial officer of the Assuming Institution, setting forth in reasonable detail the calculation described in Exhibit 2.5, including the calculation of the Net Loss Amount.

 

2.6.                            Limitation on Payments.

 

(a)                                  Failure to Administer. If the Assuming Institution fails to administer any Shared-Loss Loan in accordance with the provisions of Article 3, the Receiver may determine that such asset will not be treated as a Shared-Loss Loan pursuant to this Agreement.

 

(b)                                 Receiver’s Right to Withhold Payment.

Item within thirty (30) Business Days following receipt of information concerning the Dispute Item.

 

7.3.                            Resolution by Non-Binding Dispute Resolution Proceeding.  If informal resolution of the Dispute Item pursuant to Section 7.2 is unsuccessful, the FDIC Party, on the one hand, and the Assuming Institution, on the other hand, may submit to the other party written notification of a Dispute Item (a “Notice of Dispute”). The Notice of Dispute shall contain a description of the dispute, an estimate of the amount in issue and any other information required pursuant to this Article 7. The parties shall make good faith efforts to resolve the dispute by mutual agreement within thirty-five (35) Business Days following receipt of the Notice of Dispute. In furtherance of these efforts, the parties should consider the mutually agreed upon use of less formal dispute resolution techniques, which may include, but are not limited to, mediation, settlement conference, early neutral evaluation and any other dispute resolution proceedings (as defined in § 571(6) of the Administrative Dispute Resolution Act (“ADRA”), 5 U.S.C. § 571 et seq.), as amended).

 

7.4.                            Confidentiality of Compromise Negotiations.  All good faith attempts to resolve or compromise a dispute pursuant to Sections 7.2 or 7.3 will be confidential. All such compromise negotiations, including any statements made or documents prepared by any party, attorney or other participant, are inadmissible as evidence in other proceedings and may not be construed for any purpose as admissions against interest.

 

7.5.                            Payment Resulting from Compromise Negotiations.  If the FDIC Party and the Assuming Institution resolve a Dispute Item to their mutual satisfaction pursuant to Sections 7.2 or 7.3, including any dispute pursuant to Section 2.6, then within thirty (30) days following such resolution, the appropriate party shall make payment or take action as agreed by the parties.

 

7.6.                            Formal Resolution.

 

(a)                                  Arbitration Matters.  Any Dispute Item which has an estimated amount in issue not exceeding $500,000 per Asset may be proposed by the party seeking relief (the “Claimant Party”) for arbitration pursuant to the provisions of this Section 7.6. No more than three Dispute Items may be submitted for any single arbitration, provided that, by mutual agreement pursuant to Section 7.6(c), the parties may agree to submit any Dispute Item(s) to arbitration.

 

(b)                                 Proposal to Arbitrate.  If the FDIC Party and the Assuming Institution do not resolve a Dispute Item pursuant to Sections 7.2 and 7.3, then within ten (10) Business Days following the expiration of the period provided in Section 7.3, the Claimant Party may propose to submit the unresolved Dispute Item to arbitration by notifying the other party (the “Respondent Party”) in writing.

 

(c)                                  Submission to Arbitration.  The Respondent Party may agree to the Claimant Party’s proposal of arbitration by responding in writing within ten (10) Business Days following receipt of such proposal. Within five (5) Business Days following receipt of the Respondent Party’s agreement to arbitrate, the Claimant Party may submit the Dispute Item to the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) for arbitration. No Dispute Item may be submitted for arbitration without the consent of both parties.

(d)                                 Waiver of Arbitration.  If the Claimant Party does not (i) propose to submit the Dispute Item to arbitration within the period set forth in Section 7.6(b) or (ii) submit the Dispute Item to AAA within the period set forth in Section 7.6(c), then the Claimant Party shall be deemed to have waived submission of the Dispute Item to arbitration.

 

(e)                                  Litigation Matters.  If the FDIC Party and the Assuming Institution do not agree to submit the Dispute Item to arbitration, the Dispute Item may be resolved by litigation in accordance with Federal or state law, as provided in Section 13.10 of the Purchase and Assumption Agreement. Any litigation shall be filed in a United States District Court in the proper district.

 

(f)                                    Arbitration Administrator.  The FDIC Party may, in its discretion, appoint an organization other than AAA for administration of arbitration pursuant to this Section 7.6, in which case this Article 7 and the rules and procedures set forth herein, including the Commercial Arbitration Rules as referred to in Section 7.9, shall govern the arbitration. AAA or such other organization appointed pursuant to this Section 7.6(f) shall be referred to in this Agreement as the “Arbitration Administrator.”

 

7.7.                            Limitation on FDIC Party.  Nothing in this Article 7 shall be interpreted as obligating the FDIC Party to submit to a dispute resolution proceeding (as defined in ADRA at § 571(6)) any Dispute Item described in (i) ADRA, § 572(b) or (ii) the FDIC’s Statement of Policy Regarding Binding Arbitration, 66 Fed. Reg. l8632 (April 10, 2001), as amended, as a dispute for which an agency shall consider not using a dispute resolution proceeding.

 

7.8.                            Effectiveness of Agreement Pending Dispute.  Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, in the event that a Notice of Dispute is provided to a party under this Article 7 prior to the Termination Date, the terms of this Agreement shall remain in effect with respect to the items set forth in such notice until the dispute with respect to such items has been finally resolved, and such dispute shall be resolved in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement even if that resolution occurs after the Termination Date.

 

7.9.                            Governing Rules and Law for Arbitration.  Any arbitration shall be substantively governed by the Federal law of the United States of America, and in the absence of controlling Federal law, in accordance with the laws of the state in which the main office of the Failed Bank is located. The arbitration shall be procedurally governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “Commercial Arbitration Rules”) established by AAA to the extent that such rules are not inconsistent with this Article 7, the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“Federal Arbitration Act”), and ADRA., as each may be in effect at the time that the arbitration is initiated, except that the Commercial Arbitration Rules’ Expedited Procedures shall not apply unless the FDIC Party and Claimant Party otherwise agree in writing. The Review Board (as defined below) may modify the procedures set forth in such rules from time to time with the prior written approval of the Claimant Party and the Respondent Party.

 

7.10.                     Review Board Proceedings.  The arbitration of a dispute shall be conducted by a review board (a “Review Board”) which shall consist of either one (1) or three (3) members (each, a “Member”) with such expertise as the Claimant Party and Respondent Party agree is relevant. The Claimant Party shall specify, in its Notice of Dispute, the number of Members which it proposes for the Review Board.

(a)                                  Selection of Members.

 

(i)                                     Claimant Party Proposes One Member.  If the Dispute Item(s) are less than $250,000 in total, the Claimant Party may propose that the Review Board shall consist of one Member, and shall state, in its Notice of Dispute, the name and address of the Member that it proposes for the Review Board. If the Respondent Party agrees, in its response to the Notice of Dispute, the Member suggested by the Claimant Party shall comprise the Review Board. If the Respondent Party agrees, in its response to the Notice of Dispute, that the Review Board shall consist of one Member, but states the name and address of a different proposed Member for the Review Board, then that Member shall be deemed acceptable to the Claimant Party if it submits the Notice of Dispute to the Arbitration Administrator, provided that, before the Respondent Party responds to the Notice of Dispute with a different proposed Member, the parties may also mutually agree upon one Member. If the Respondent Party proposes that the Review Board shall consist of three Members, then the Members shall be selected in accordance with Section 7.10(a)(iv).

 

(ii)                                  Claimant Party Proposes Three Members.  If the Dispute Items exceed $250,000 in total, or if the Respondent Party proposes that the Review Board shall consist of three Members, then the Claimant Party shall state the name and address of the first of three Members in its Notice of Dispute. If the Respondent Party agrees that the Review Board shall consist of three Members, the Respondent Party shall state the name and address of the second Member in its response to the Notice of Dispute. Each such Member shall be considered a “Party-Appointed Arbitrator” (“Party-Appointed Arbitrator”), consistent with Commercial Arbitration Rule R-12. If the Claimant Party subsequently submits the Notice of Dispute to the Arbitration Administrator as provided in Section 7.6(c), then within ten (10) Business Days of such submission, the Party-Appointed Arbitrators shall select a neutral third Member (the “Neutral Member”) in accordance with Commercial Arbitration Rules R-11 and R-13, except that the Neutral Member need not be from the National Roster of Commercial Arbitrators. If the Respondent Party proposes that the Review Board shall consist of one Member, then the Member shall be selected in accordance with Section 7.10(a)(iii).

 

(iii)                               Respondent Party Proposes One Member.  If the Claimant Party proposes that the Review Board shall consist of three Members, but the Respondent Party proposes that the Review Board shall consist of one Member in its response to the Notice of Dispute, then the Member proposed by the Claimant Party in the Notice of Dispute shall comprise the Review Board unless the Respondent Party states the name and address of a different proposed Member in its response to the Notice of Dispute. If the Respondent Party proposes a different Member in its response to the Notice of Dispute, then that Member shall be deemed acceptable to the Claimant Party if it submits the Notice of Dispute to the Arbitration Administrator.

 

(iv)                              Respondent Party Proposes Three Members.  If the Claimant Party proposes that the Review Board shall consist of one Member, but the Respondent Party proposes, in its response to the Notice of Dispute, that the Review Board shall consist of three Members, then the Member proposed by the Claimant Party in the Notice of Dispute shall comprise the first Member of the Review Board.

(b)                                 Removal of Members.  A Party-Appointed Arbitrator may be removed at any time by the party who appointed that Member upon five (5) Business Days notice to the other party of the selection of a replacement Member. The Neutral Member may be removed by unanimous action of the Party-Appointed Arbitrators or unanimous action of the parties after five (5) Business Days notice to the Claimant Party and the Respondent Party and the Arbitration Administrator of the selection of a replacement Neutral Member.

 

(c)                                  Vacancies.  Any vacancy on the Review Board prior to or after the commencement of the hearing of evidence and argument (the “Arbitration Hearing”) shall be handled in accordance with Commercial Arbitration Rule R-19, except that if a vacancy arises after the Arbitration Hearing has commenced, a substitute Member shall be selected in accordance with the rules under which the original Member was selected.

 

7.11.                     Impartiality.  As a condition of serving on the Review Board, within five (5) Business Days after being selected, each Member shall provide a written oath, under penalty of perjury, containing a statement that the Member does not have any conflicts of interest (whether official, financial, personal or otherwise) with respect to the issues or parties in controversy, and that each Member agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Article 7 as applicable to the Members. If a Member has any potential conflict of interest, the Member shall fully disclose such interest in writing to the Claimant Party and the Respondent Party and the Member shall not serve on the Review Board, unless the Claimant Party and the Respondent Party agree otherwise. The Conflicts Committee of the Legal Division of the Corporation shall review any potential conflicts of interest for potential waiver. None of the Members may serve as counsel, advisor, witness or representative to any party to the arbitration.

 

7.12.                     Schedule.  The Review Board shall assume control of the arbitration process and shall schedule all events as expeditiously as possible. The Arbitration Hearing shall commence within ninety (90) Business Days after receipt of the Notice of Dispute by the Arbitration Administrator.

 

7.13.                     Written Award.  Within twenty (20) Business Days following closing of the Arbitration Hearing, as determined by Commercial Arbitration Rule R-35, the Review Board shall determine the prevailing party and award the prevailing party its proposed award or award any remedy or relief that the arbitrator deems just and equitable and within the scope of this Article 7, but in no event may an award of the Review Board (inclusive of all claims and counterclaims) exceed the maximum amount set forth in Section 7.6(a). If the Review Board consists of three (3) Members, the determination of any two (2) Members shall constitute the Review Board’s determination. The Review Board shall present to the Claimant Party and the Respondent Party a written award regarding the dispute. The written award shall contain a brief, informal discussion of the factual and legal basis for the award and need not contain formal findings of facts and law.

The Claimant Party and the Respondent Party will share equally the fees and expenses of the Neutral Member and any administrative fees of the arbitration (which shall not include the fees and expenses of the Members).

Other than as provided by the Federal Arbitration Act and ADRA, no review, appeal or reconsideration of the Review Board’s determination shall be permitted, including review, appeal or reconsideration by the Review Board or any other arbitrators. The parties agree to faithfully observe the provisions of this Article 7 and the Commercial Arbitration Rules, and the parties agree to abide by and perform any award rendered by the Review Board.

 

7.18.                     No Precedent.  No decision, interpretation, determination, analysis, statement, award or other pronouncement of a Review Board shall constitute precedent in regard to any subsequent proceeding (whether or not such proceeding involves dispute resolution under this Agreement), nor shall any Review Board be bound to follow any decision, interpretation, determination, analysis, statement, award or other pronouncement rendered by any previous Review Board or any other previous dispute resolution panel that may have convened in connection with a transaction involving other failed financial institutions or Federal assistance transactions.

 

7.19.                     Confidentiality; Proceedings, Information and Documents.  No arbitration held pursuant to this Article 7 shall be public or accessible to any person other than the parties and their representatives, the Review Board and witnesses participating in the arbitration (and then, only to the extent of their participation).
