On June 8, 2016, the Federal Reserve Board and the FDIC announced that they are giving four foreign banking organizations a one-year extension for the submission of their next US resolution plans. Barclays PLC, Credit Suisse Group, Deutsche Bank AG, and UBS AG will be required to submit their next plan on July 1, 2017, with the 2016 annual resolution filing requirement being satisfied by submission of the 2017 plans. The agencies’ press release indicates that the extension was granted in light of the fact that these firms are undergoing significant restructuring to come into compliance with the intermediate holding company requirement by July 1, 2016. The agencies also stated that they expect to provide feedback to the four foreign banking organizations in respect of their 2015 plans, as well as provide additional guidance to the firms for their 2017 plans.
