The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has issued a proposed
revision of its disclosure policy regarding notices issued pursuant
to a change in bank control.
Officials said the Comptroller believes the greater public good
would be served by announcing in the majority of cases the receipt of
the change of control notice, the name of the affected institution,
the proposed purchaser, and the earliest date at which the
transaction may be completed.
All other information the Comptroller proposes to remain
confidential, as currently treated.
The Comptroller is soliciting comments on its proposals.
Particularly sought are opinions on:
- To what extent would early release of information be useful in
soliciting information from the community as to whether a notice of
disapproval should be issued;
- To what extent would interest of the purchaser be prejudiced
by the early disclosure of its existance. . .
