  • For purposes of this subpart

    (a) Adverse scenario means a set of conditions that affect the U.S. economy or the financial condition of a covered bank that are more adverse than those associated with the baseline scenario and may include trading or other additional components.

    (b) Average total consolidated assets means the average of the covered bank's total consolidated assets, as reported on the covered bank's Consolidated Report of Condition and Income (Call Report) for the four most recent consecutive quarters. If the covered bank has not filed a Call Report for each of the four most recent consecutive quarters, the covered bank's average total consolidated assets means the average of the covered bank's total consolidated assets, as reported on the covered bank's Call Reports, for the most recent one or more consecutive quarters. The date on which the state nonmember bank or the state savings association becomes a covered bank will be the as-of date of the most recent Call Report used in the calculation of the average.

    (c) Baseline scenario means a set of conditions that affect the U.S. economy or the financial condition of a covered bank, and that reflect the consensus views of the economic and financial outlook.

    (d) Covered bank means any state nonmember bank or state savings association subject to the following categories:

    (1) $10 billion to $50 billion covered bank. Any state nonmember bank or state savings association with average total consolidated assets calculated as required under this subpart that are greater than $10 billion but less than $50 billion.

    (2) Over $50 billion covered bank. Any state nonmember bank or state savings association with average total consolidated assets calculated as required under this subpart that are not less than $50 billion.

    (e) Planning horizon means the period of at least nine quarters over which the relevant projections extend.

    (f) Pre-provision net revenue means the sum of net interest income and non-interest income, less expenses, before adjusting for loss provisions.

    (g) Provision for loan and lease losses means the provision for loan and lease losses as reported by the covered bank on its Call Report.

    (h) Regulatory capital ratio means a capital ratio for which the Corporation established minimum requirements by regulation or order, including the leverage ratio and tier 1 and total risk-based capital ratios applicable to that covered bank as calculated under the Corporation's regulations.

    (i) Scenarios are those sets of conditions that affect the U.S. economy or the financial condition of a covered bank that the Corporation annually determines are appropriate for use in the company-run stress tests, including, but not limited to, baseline, adverse, and severely adverse scenarios.

    (j) Severely adverse scenario means a set of conditions that affect the U.S. economy or the financial condition of a covered bank and that overall are more severe than those associated with the adverse scenario and may include trading or other additional components.

    (k) State nonmember bank and state savings association have the same meanings as those terms are defined in section 3 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1813).

    (l) Stress test means the process to assess the potential impact of scenarios on the consolidated earnings, losses, and capital of a covered bank over the planning horizon, taking into account the current condition of the covered bank and the covered bank's risks, exposures, strategies, and activities.
