SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OTS may not conduct or sponsor an information collection, and respondents are not required to respond to an information collection, unless the information collection displays a currently valid OMB control number. As part of the approval process, we invite comments on the following information collection.

Title of Proposal: Savings Loan Holding Company Application.

OMB Number: 1550-0015.

Form Numbers: H-(e).

Description: Section 10(e) of the Home Owners' Loan Act, 12 U.S.C. 1467a(e), and its implementing regulations provide that no company, or any director or officer of a savings and loan holding company, or any individual who owns, controls, or holds with power to vote (or holds proxies representing) more than 25 percent of the voting stock of a savings and loan holding company, shall acquire control of a savings association except upon receipt of written approval of OTS. While this prohibition and approval requirement applies to certain persons affiliated with a savings and loan holding company, a similar prohibition and approval requirement applies to other persons who seek to control a savings association. However, a transaction may be exempt.

OTS analyzes each holding company application to determine whether the applicant meets the statutory criteria set forth in Section 10(e) of the Act to become a savings and loan holding company. The forms are reviewed for adequacy of answers to items and completeness in all material respects.
