In the Matter of

FIRST INTERNATIONAL BANK
CHULA VISTA, CALIFORNIA
(Insured State Nonmember Bank)
ORDER TO
CEASE AND DESIST

FDIC-92-82b

   The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC"), on March 26, 1992, issued to First International Bank, Chula Vista, California ("Bank"), a NOTICE OF CHARGES AND OF HEARING ("NOTICE"), pursuant to section 8(b)(1) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act ("Act"), 12 U.S.C. § 1818(b)(1). The NOTICE charges the Bank with having engaged in unsafe or unsound banking practices and violations of law and/or regulations.
   The Bank and counsel for the FDIC thereafter executed a STIPULATION AND CONSENT TO THE ISSUANCE OF AN ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST ("CONSENT AGREEMENT"), dated July 7, 1992. The Bank, without admitting nor denying the allegations in the NOTICE, desires to avoid the distraction, time, and expense of further litigation and to protect the interests of the Bank's depositors and shareholders, agrees to execute a stipulation consenting to the issuance of an ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST ("ORDER") by the FDIC.
   The FDIC considered the matter and determined that it had reason to believe that the Bank had engaged in unsafe or unsound banking practices and had committed violations of law and/or regulations. The FDIC, therefore, accepted the CONSENT AGREEMENT and issued the following:

ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST

   IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Bank, and any institution-affiliated party as such term is defined in section 3(u) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1813(u), cease and desist from the following unsafe or unsound banking practices and violations:
   (a) operating with inadequate management;
   (b) operating with inadequate equity capital and reserves in relation to the volume and quality of assets held by the Bank;
{{9-30-92 p.C-2508}}
   (c) operating with a large volume of poor quality loans;
   (d) operating with an inadequate loan valuation reserve;
   (e) following hazardous lending and lax collection practices;
   (f) operating with inadequate provisions for liquidity and funds management;
   (g) operating with inadequate internal routine and controls policies;
   (h) operating in such a manner as to produce low earnings;
   (i) operating with a board of directors which has failed to provide adequate supervision over and direction to the management of the Bank;
   (j) operating with an inadequate business/ strategic plan;
   (k) operating with undue concentrations of credit in relation to the Bank's capital account;
   (l) operating in violation of section 323.4 and 323.5 of the FDIC's Rules and Regulations, 12 C.F.R. §§ 323.4 and 323.5, as more fully described on page 6-b of the Report of Examination of the Bank as of July 31, 1991; sections 215.7 of Regulation O of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, 12 C.F.R. § 215.7, made applicable to state nonmember institutions by section 18(j)(2) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1828(j)(2), as more fully described on page 6-b-1 of the Report of Examination of the Bank as of July 31, 1991; and section 858 of the California Financial Code, as more fully described on page 6-b-1 of the Report of Examination of the Bank as of July 31, 1991; and
   (m) operating in violation of section 226.18 of Regulation Z of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, 12 C.F.R. § 226.18, as more fully described on page 2 of the Compliance Report of Examination of the Bank as of October 7, 1991; section 339.3 of the FDIC's Rules and Regulations, 12 C.F.R. § 339.3, as more fully described on page 2-a-1 of the Compliance Report of Examination of the Bank as of October 7, 1991.
   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Bank take affirmative action as follows:

   [.1] 1. The Bank shall have and retain qualified management.

       (a) Each member of management shall have qualifications and experience commensurate with his or her duties and responsibilities at the Bank. Management should include a chief executive officer with proven ability in managing a Bank of comparable size, and experience in upgrading a low quality loan portfolio, improving earnings, and other matters needing particular attention. Management should also include a senior lending officer acceptable to the Regional Director of the FDIC's San Francisco Regional Office ("Regional Director"). Each member of management shall be provided appropriate written authority from the Bank's board of directors to implement the provisions of this ORDER.
       (b) The qualifications of management shall be assessed on its ability to:
         (i) comply with the requirements of this ORDER;
         (ii) operate the Bank in a safe and sound manner;
         (iii) comply with applicable laws and regulations; and
         (iv) restore all aspects of the Bank to a safe and sound condition, including asset quality, capital adequacy, earnings, management effectiveness, and liquidity.
       (c) During the life of this ORDER, the Bank shall notify the Regional Director in writing when it proposes to add any individual to the Bank's board of directors or employ any individual as a "senior executive officer," as such term is defined in section 32 of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1831i. The notification must be received at least 30 days before such addition or employment is intended to become effective and should include a description of the background and experience of the individual or individuals to be added or employed.
       (d) The bank may not add any individual to its board of directors or employ any individual as a senior executive officer if the Regional Director issues a notice of disapproval pursuant to section 32 of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1831i.

   [.2] 2. Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the board of directors shall increase its participation in the affairs of the Bank, assuming full responsibility for the approval of sound policies and objectives and for the supervision of all of the Bank's activities, consistent with the role and expertise commonly expected for direc- {{9-30-92 p.C-2509}}tors of banks of comparable size. This participation shall include meetings to be held no less frequently than monthly, at which, at a minimum, the following areas are reviewed and approved: reports of income and expenses; new, overdue, renewal, insider, charged-off, and recovered loans; investment activity; operating policies; and individual committee actions. Board minutes shall document these reviews and approvals, including the names of any dissenting directors.

    [.3] 3. (a) Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall increase common equity by no less than $500,000, achieve adjusted Tier 1 capital in the amount of $6,000,000, and achieve adjusted Tier 1 capital in such an amount as to equal or exceed seven (7.0) percent of the Bank's total assets. Thereafter, during the life of this ORDER, the Bank shall maintain adjusted Tier 1 capital in such an amount as to equal or exceed seven (7.0) percent of the Bank's total assets. The computation of the above shall be determined by using the procedures outlined in the "Analysis of Capital" schedule in the FDIC Report of Examination.
       (b) Within 60 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall develop and adopt a plan to meet the minimum risk-based capital requirements as described in the FDIC Statement of Policy on Risk-Based Capital contained in Appendix A to Part 325 of the FDIC Rules and Regulations, 12 C.F.R. Part 325, Appendix A. The Plan shall be in a form and manner acceptable to the Regional Director as determined at subsequent examinations.
       (c) Any increase in Tier 1 capital necessary to meet the requirements of Paragraph 3 of this ORDER may be accomplished by the following:
         (i) the sale of common stock; or
         (ii) the sale of non-cumulative perpetual preferred stock; or
         (iii) the direct contribution of cash by the board of directors and/or shareholders of the Bank; or
         (iv) any other means acceptable to the Regional Director; or
         (v) any combination of the above means.
    Any increase in Tier 1 capital necessary to meet the requirements of Paragraph 3 of this ORDER may not be accomplished through a deduction from the Bank's loan loss reserves.
       (d) If all or part of the increase in Tier 1 capital required by Paragraph 3 of this ORDER is accomplished by the sale of new securities, the board of directors shall forthwith take all necessary steps to adopt and implement a plan for the sale of such additional securities, including the voting of any shares owned or proxies held or controlled by them in favor of the plan. Should the implementation of the plan involve a public distribution of the Bank's securities (including a distribution limited only to the Bank's existing shareholders), the Bank shall prepare offering materials fully describing the securities being offered, including an accurate description of the financial condition of the Bank and the circumstances giving rise to the offering, and any other material disclosures necessary to comply with the Federal securities laws. Prior to the implementation of the plan and, in any event, not less than fifteen (15) days prior to the dissemination of such materials, the plan and any materials used in the sale of the securities shall be submitted to the FDIC, Registration and Disclosure Section, Washington, D.C. 20429, for review. Any changes requested to be made in the plan or materials by the FDIC shall be made prior to their dissemination. If the increase in Tier 1 capital is provided by the sale of non-cumulative perpetual preferred stock, then all terms and conditions of the issue, including but not limited to those terms and conditions relative to interest rate and convertibility factor, shall be presented to the Regional Director for prior approval.
       (e) In complying with the provisions of Paragraph 3 of this ORDER, the Bank shall provide to any subscriber and/or purchaser of the Bank's securities, a written notice of any planned or existing development or other changes which are materially different from the information reflected in any offering materials used in connection with the sale of Bank securities, except such matters as are discovered after consummation of the sale of securities. The written notice required by this paragraph shall be furnished within ten (10) days from the date such material {{9-30-92 p.C-2510}}development or change was planned or occurred, whichever is earlier, and shall be furnished to every subscriber and/or purchaser of the Bank's securities who received or was tendered the information contained in the Bank's original offering materials.
       (f) For the purposes of this ORDER, the terms "Tier 1 capital" and "total assets" shall have the meanings ascribed to them in Part 325 of the FDIC Rules and Regulations, 12 C.F.R. §§ 325.2(m) and 325.2(n), as amended at 56 Fed. Reg. 10154, effective April 10, 1991.

[.4] 4. (a) Within 10 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall eliminate from its books, by charge-off or collection, all assets classified "Loss" and one-half of the assets classified "Doubtful" as of July 31, 1991, that have not been previously collected or charged off. Elimination of these assets through proceeds of other loans made by the Bank is not considered collection for the purpose of this paragraph.
   (b) Within 180 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall have reduce the assets classified "Substandard" and those assets classified "Doubtful" as of July 31, 1991 that have not previously been charged off to not more than $6,000,000.
   (c) Within 365 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall have reduced the assets classified "Substandard" and those assets classified "Doubtful" as of July 31, 1991 that have not previously been charged off to not more than fifty percent (50%) of Tier 1 capital.
   (d) The requirements of subparagraphs 4(a), 4(b) and 4(c) of this ORDER are not to be construed as standards for future operations and, in addition to the foregoing, the Bank shall eventually reduce the total of all adversely classified assets. Reduction of these assets through proceeds of other loans made by the Bank is not considered collection for the purpose of this paragraph. As used in subparagraphs 4(a), 4(b), 4(c) and 4(d) the word "reduce" or "eliminate" means:
       (i) to collect;
       (ii) to charge-off; or
       (iii) to sufficiently improve the quality of assets adversely classified to warrant removing any adverse classification, as determined by the FDIC.

   [.5] 5. Beginning with the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall not extend, directly or indirectly, any additional credit to, or for the benefit of, any borrower whose loan or other credit has been classified "Loss," "Doubtful" or "Substandard" and is uncollected unless the board of directors has approved a resolution adopting a detailed written statement giving reasons why failure to extend such credit would be detrimental to the best interests of the Bank. The statement shall be placed in the appropriate loan file and included in the minutes of the applicable board of directors' meeting.

    [.6] 6. (a) Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall revise, adopt and implement written lending and collection policies to provide effective guidance and control over the Bank's lending function, which policies shall include specific guidelines for placing loans on a non-accrual basis. In addition, the Bank shall use all reasonable efforts to obtain adequate and current documentation for all loans in the Bank's loan portfolio. Such policies and their implementation shall be in a form and manner acceptable to the Regional Director as determined at subsequent examinations and/or visitations.
       (b) The initial revisions to the Bank's loan policy and practices, required by this paragraph, at a minimum, shall include the following:
         (i) provisions, consistent with FDIC instructions for the preparation of Reports of Condition and Income, under which the accrual of interest income is discontinued and previously accrued interest is reversed on delinquent loans;
         (ii) provisions which prohibit the capitalization of interest or loan related expense unless the board of directors supports in writing and records in the minutes of the corresponding board of directors meeting why an exception thereto is in the best interests of the Bank;
         (iii) provisions which require complete loan documentation, realistic repayment terms and current credit information adequate to support the outstanding indebtedness of the borrower. Such documentation shall include current fi- {{9-30-92 p.C-2511}}nancial information, profit and loss statements or copies of tax returns and cash flow projections;
         (iv) provisions which incorporate limitations on the amount that can be loaned in relation to established collateral values;
         (v) provisions which specify the circumstances and conditions under which real estate appraisals must be conducted by an independent third party;
         (vi) provisions which establish standards for unsecured credit;
         (vii) provisions which establish a mechanism to determine officer lending limits;
         (viii) provisions that require extension of credit to any of the Bank's executive officers, directors, or principal shareholders, or to any related interest of such persons, to be approved in advance by a majority of the entire board of directors in accordance with section 215.4(b) of Regulation O of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, 12 C.F.R. § 215.4(b);
         (ix) provisions which prohibit the issuance of standby letters of credit unless the letters of credit are fully secured by readily marketable collateral and/or are supported by current and complete financial information.
         (x) provisions that directors first determine that the lending staff has the expertise necessary to properly supervise construction loans and that adequate procedures are in place to monitor any construction involved before funds are disbursed;
         (xi) provisions which assess concentrations of credit and are consistent with the analysis addressed in paragraph 7 of this ORDER;
         (xii) provisions which require the preparation of a loan "watch list" which shall include relevant information on all loans in excess of $50,000 which are classified "Substandard" and "Doubtful" as of July 31, 1991 or by the FDIC or State in subsequent Reports of Examination and all other loans in excess of $50,000 which warrant individual review and consideration by the board of directors as determined by the loan committee or active management. The loan "watch list" shall be presented to the board of directors for review at least monthly with such review noted in the minutes; and
         (xiii) the board of directors shall adopt procedures whereby officer compliance with the revised loans policy is monitored and responsibility for exceptions thereto assigned. The procedures adopted shall be reflected in minutes of a board of directors meeting at which all members are present and the vote of each is noted.

   [.7] 7. Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall perform a risk segmentation analysis with respect to the Concentrations of Credit listed on pages 2-c, 2-c-1 and 2-c-2 of the Report of Examination of the Bank as of July 31, 1991. Concentrations should be identified by product type, geographic distribution, underlying collateral or other asset groups which are considered economically related and in the aggregate represent a large portion of the Bank's capital account. A copy of this analysis will be provided to the Regional Director and the board agrees to develop a plan to reduce any segment of the portfolio which the Regional Director deems to be an undue concentration of credit in relation to the Bank's capital account. The plan and its implementation shall be in a form and manner acceptable to the Regional Director as determined at subsequent examinations and/or visitations.

    [.8] 8. (a) Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall establish and thereafter maintain an adequate reserve for loan losses.
       (b) Additionally, within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the board of directors shall develop or revise, adopt and implement a comprehensive policy for determining the adequacy of the reserve for loan losses. For the purpose of this determination, the adequacy of the reserve shall be determined after the charge-off of all loans or other items classified "Loss." The policy shall provide for a review of the reserve at least once each calendar quarter. Said review should be completed in order that the findings of the board of directors with respect to the loan loss reserve may be properly reported in the quarterly Reports of Condition and Income. The review should fo- {{9-30-92 p.C-2512}}cus on the results of the Bank's internal loan review, loan loss experience, trends of delinquent and non-accrual loans, an estimate of potential loss exposure of significant credits, concentrations of credit, and present and prospective economic conditions. A deficiency in the reserve shall be remedied in the calendar quarter it is discovered, prior to submitting the Report of Condition, by a charge to current operating earnings. The minutes of the board of directors meeting at which such review is undertaken shall indicate the results of the review. Upon completion of the review, the Bank shall increase and maintain its loss reserve consistent with the loan loss reserve policy established. Such policy and its implementation shall be satisfactory to the Regional Director as determined at subsequent examinations and/or visitations.

    [.9] 9. (a) Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall formulate and fully implement a written plan and a comprehensive budget for all categories of income and expense. The plan and budget required by this paragraph shall include formal goals and strategies, consistent with sound banking practices, to improve the Bank's net interest margin, increase interest income, reduce discretionary expenses, and improve and sustain earnings of the Bank. The plan shall include a description of the operating assumptions that form the basis for and adequately support, major projected income and expense components. Thereafter, the Bank shall formulate such a plan and budget by November 30 of each subsequent year.
       (b) The plan and budget required by subparagraph 9(a) of this ORDER, upon completion, shall be submitted to the Regional Director for their review and opportunity for comment.
       (c) Following the end of each calendar quarter, the board of directors shall evaluate the Bank's actual performance in relation to the plan and budget required by subparagraph 9(a) of this ORDER and shall record the results of the evaluation, and any actions taken by the Bank, in the minutes of the board of directors meeting at which such evaluation is undertaken.

   [.10] 10. Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall eliminate and/or correct violations of law which are more fully set out on pages 6-b, 6-b-1 and 6-b-2 of the Report of Examination of the Bank as of July 31, 1991, and the Bank shall eliminate and/or correct all violations of law which are more fully set out on pages 2, 2-a, 2-a-1 and 2-a-2 of the Compliance Report of Examination of the Bank as of October 7, 1991. In addition, the Bank shall take all reasonable steps to ensure future compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

   [.11] 11. Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the board of directors shall develop a comprehensive asset/ liability management policy. Such policy and its implementation shall be satisfactory to the Regional Director as determined at subsequent examinations and/or visitations. The policy shall establish standards consistent with generally accepted prudent banking operations by giving specific consideration to:

       (i) establishing a range for the Bank's volatile liability dependency ratio, as computed by the FDIC in its Reports of Examination. The Bank's volatile liability dependency ratio shall be maintained at a level consistent with prudent banking practices;
       (ii) establishing a range for short-term investments to potentially volatile liabilities, as those terms are defined by the FDIC in its current edition of "A Users Guide for the Uniform Bank Performance Report";
       (iii) establishing maturity ranges for the Bank's investment portfolio;
       (iv) establishing acceptable ranges for the Bank's rate sensitivity and gap ratios; and
       (v) the establishing of an asset/ liability committee, including a description of its responsibilities, how often it will meet, how it will obtain information and guidance from the board of directors, and how its activities will be reported to the board of directors.

   [.12] 12. Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall adopt and implement a policy for the operation of the Bank in such a manner as to provide adequate internal routine and control policies consistent with safe and sound banking practices. Such policy and its implementation shall be satisfactory to the Regional Director as determined at subsequent examinations and/or visitations.

{{9-30-92 p.C-2513}}

   [.13] 13. Within 10 days after eliminating from its books any asset in compliance with Paragraph 4 of this ORDER, the Bank shall file with the FDIC amended Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income which shall accurately reflect the financial condition of the Bank as of June 30, 1991. Thereafter, during the life of this ORDER, the Bank shall file with the FDIC Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income which accurately reflect the financial condition of the Bank as of the end of the period for which the Reports are filed, including any adjustment in the Bank's books made necessary or appropriate as a consequence of any California State Banking Department or FDIC examination of the Bank during that reporting period.

   [.14] 14. The Bank shall not pay cash dividends in any amount except as follows:

       (a) such declarations and payments are made in accordance with applicable State and Federal laws and regulations;
       (b) that after payment of such dividends, the ratio of adjusted Tier 1 capital to total assets of the Bank will be not less than seven (7.0) percent and the reserve for loan losses shall be at an adequate level;
       (c) that such declaration and payment of dividends shall be approved in advance by the board of directors; and
       (d) that such declaration and payment of dividends shall be approved in advance, in writing, by the Regional Director, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.

   [.15] 15. The Bank shall not pay a bonus in addition to stipulated wages to or for the benefit of any executive officer of the Bank without providing thirty (30) days written notice of such proposed action to the Regional Director.

   [.16] 16. During the life of this ORDER, the Bank shall not increase its average assets by seven and one-half (7.5) percent or more during any three month period without receiving the prior written approval of the Regional Director. The approval shall be requested at least thirty (30) days in advance of the period during which the Bank intends to exceed the seven and one-half (7.5) percent growth restriction.

   [.17] 17. While this ORDER is in effect, the Bank shall give written notice to the Regional Director at such time as the Bank intends to make use of brokered deposits. The notification should indicate how the brokered deposits are to be utilized with specific reference to credit quality of investments/loans and the effect on the Bank's funds position and asset/liability matching. The Regional Director shall have the right to reject the Bank's plans for utilizing brokered deposits. For purposes of this ORDER, brokered deposits are defined as described in section 337.6(a)(1) of the FDIC Rules and Regulations.

   [.18] 18. Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall prepare and submit to the Regional Director a written business/strategic plan covering the overall operation of the Bank.

{{9-30-92 p.C-2514}}

   [.22] 22.
