FIRST NEW YORK BANK FOR
BUSINESS

NEW YORK, NEW YORK
(Insured State Nonmember Bank)
ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST
FDIC-92-319b

   First New York Bank of Business ("Bank"), having been advised of its right to a Notice of Charges and of Hearing detailing the unsafe or unsound banking practices and violations of law and/or regulations alleged to have been committed by the Bank and of its right to a hearing on the alleged charges under section 8(b) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act ("Act"), 12 U.S.C. § 1818(b), and having waived those rights, entered into a STIPULATION AND CONSENT TO THE ISSUANCE OF AN ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST ("CONSENT AGREEMENT") with counsel for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC"), dated October 30, 1992, whereby, solely for the purpose of this proceeding and without admitting or denying the alleged charges of unsafe or unsound banking practices and violations of law and/or regulations, the Bank consented 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, its successors, assigns, directors, officers, employees, agents, and other "institution-affiliated parties," as defined in section 3(u) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1818(u), CEASE AND DESIST from the following unsafe or unsound banking practices and violations:
   (a) Engaging in hazardous lending and lax collection practices;
   (b) Operating the Bank with inadequate capital in relation to the kind and quality of assets held by the Bank;
{{5-31-93 p.C-2818}}
   (c) Operating the Bank with an excessive volume of poor quality assets;
   (d) Operating the Bank with an inadequate allowance for loan and lease losses;
   (e) Operating the Bank with inadequate liquidity and funds management;
   (f) Operating the Bank in such a manner as to produce unsatisfactory earnings;
   (g) Engaging in violation of applicable Federal and State laws and regulations, as more fully set forth on pages 6-a through 6-a-2 of the Report of Examination of the Bank by the FDIC as of September 3, 1991 and pages 3-a through 3-a-1 of the Report of Examination of the New York State Banking Department as of June 30, 1991;
   (h) Operating the Bank with management whose policies and practices are detrimental to the Bank and jeopardize the safety of its deposits;
   (i) Operating the Bank with a board of directors which has failed to provide adequate supervision over and direction to the operating management of the Bank; and
   (j) Operating the Bank with an excessive reliance upon volatile funding.
   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Bank take AFFIRMATIVE action as follows:

[.1] 1. (a) The Bank shall have and retain qualified management. Each member of management shall have qualifications and experience commensurate with his or her duties and responsibilities at the Bank. 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 all applicable laws and regulations; and
       (iv) restore all aspects of the Bank to a safe and sound condition, including capital adequacy, asset quality, management effectiveness, earnings and liquidity.
    (b) (i) During the life of this ORDER, the Bank shall notify the Regional Director of the New York Regional Office of the FDIC ("Regional Director") and the Superintendent of Banks of the New York State Banking Department ("Superintendent") in writing of any resignations and/or terminations of any members of its board of directors and/or any of its officers.
       (ii) The Bank shall comply with section 32 of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1831i, which includes a requirement that the Bank shall notify the Regional Director and the Superintendent in writing at least 30 days prior to any individual assuming a new position as a senior executive officer or any additions to its board of directors.
   (c) To facilitate having and retaining qualified management, the Bank's board of directors shall, within 15 days from the effective date of this ORDER, appoint a committee with at least three members, composed of directors who are not now, and never have been, involved in the daily operations of the Bank ("Outside Directors"), and whose composition is acceptable to the Regional Director and the Superintendent (the "Committee"). The Committee shall, immediately upon being appointed, undertake an in-depth analysis of the Bank's managerial requirements. This analysis shall include a review of the composition, policies, and practices of the Bank's current operating management, and consideration of whether current operating management should be changed, or the terms and conditions under which current operating management should be continued. As part of this review, the Committee shall evaluate each Bank officer to determine whether these individuals possess the ability, experience and other qualifications required to perform present and anticipated duties, including adherence to the Bank's established policies and practices, and maintenance of the Bank in a safe and sound condition.
   (d) Within 90 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Committee shall prepare and present to the board of directors of the Bank a written report of its findings and recommendations. The board of directors of the Bank shall review the Committee's report and evaluate its current operating management in light of such report, and shall take whatever action is necessary to implement its determinations. A copy of the Committee's report, as well as the board of directors' evaluation, determinations, and implementing ac- {{12-31-92 p.C-2819}}tions, shall be submitted to the Regional Director and the Superintendent within 120 days from the effective date of this ORDER.

[.2] 2. (a) Within 120 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall have Tier 1 capital equal to or greater than 6.00 percent of the Bank's Part 325 total assets. Thereafter, during the life of this ORDER, the Bank shall maintain Tier 1 capital equal to or greater than 6.00 percent of the Bank's Part 325 total assets.
   (b) Any increase in Tier 1 capital necessary to meet the ratio required by paragraph 2(a) of this ORDER may be accomplished by the following:

       (i) the sale of new securities in the form of common stock; or
       (ii) the direct contribution of cash by the directors or shareholders; or
       (iii) any combination of the above or other method acceptable to the FDIC.
   (c) If all or part of the increase in Tier 1 capital required by paragraph 2(a) of this ORDER is accomplished by the sale of new securities, the board of directors of the Bank shall forthwith 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 Bank 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 Federal and State securities laws. Prior to the implementation of the plan and, in any event, not less than 20 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, and to the Superintendent. Any changes requested to be made in the plan or materials by the FDIC or the Superintendent shall be made prior to their dissemination.
   (d) In complying with the provisions of paragraph 2 of this ORDER, the Bank shall provide to any subscriber and/or purchaser of Bank securities 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. The written notice required by this paragraph shall be furnished within 10 calendar days from the date such material development or change was planned or occurred, whichever is earlier, and shall be furnished to every subscriber and/or purchaser of Bank securities who received or was tendered the information contained in the Bank's original offering materials.
   (e) For the purposes of this ORDER, the terms "Tier 1 capital" and "Part 325 total assets" shall have the meanings ascribed to them in Part 325 of the FDIC's Rules and Regulations, respectively sections 325.2(m) and 325.2(n), 12 C.F.R. §§ 325.2(m) and (n) (to be recodified at 12 C.F.R. §§ 325.2(t) and (v), 57 Fed. Reg. 44866, 44899 (1992)).
   (f) The Bank shall not lend funds directly or indirectly, whether secured or unsecured, to any purchaser of Bank stock or to any investor by any other means for any portion of any increase in Tier 1 capital required herein.

[.3] 3. (a) Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the board of directors of the Bank shall review the adequacy of the Bank's allowance for loan and lease losses. This review shall focus particular attention upon: (i) results of the Bank's internal loan review; (ii) loan loss experience; (iii) an estimate of potential loss exposure on each significant credit; (iv) concentrations of credit in the Bank; and (v) present and prospective economic conditions.
   (b) Immediately upon completing the review required by paragraph 3(a) of this ORDER, the Bank's board of directors shall adopt a method of computing the balance of the Bank's allowance for loan and lease losses that gives consideration to the volume and composition of the loan portfolio not subject to criticism, as well as to the volume and composition of criticized loans, including but not limited to the factors referenced in paragraph 3(a). Thereafter, the Bank's board of directors shall, during the first month of each quarter, reevaluate the allowance for loan and lease losses and make such additional pro- {{12-31-92 p.C-2820}}visions for loan and lease losses that are necessary to maintain the allowance at an adequate level relative to the volume of risk in the Bank's loan portfolio. All such additional provisions for loan and lease losses shall be made in the first month of the calendar quarter in which the deficiency in the allowance is identified, but as of the end of the preceding calendar quarter, and shall be reflected in the Report of Condition and the Report of Income filed in the calendar quarter in which the deficiency is identified with respect to the preceding calendar quarter. The minutes of the board of directors of the Bank shall reflect that such reevaluation has been performed, and documentary proof of the method employed in determining the level of the allowance shall be maintained for future regulatory review.
   (c) All increase in the allowance for loan and lease losses, with the exception of recoveries credited directly to the allowance, shall be accomplished by charges to operating earnings through the provision for loan and lease losses.

[.4] 4. (a) Within 60 days from the effective date of this ORDER, and within the first 30 days of each calendar year thereafter, the board of directors of the Bank shall develop a written earnings plan consisting of goals and strategies for improving the earnings of the Bank for each calendar year. The written earnings plan shall include, at a minimum:

       (i) identification of the major areas in, and means by, which the board of directors will seek to improve the Bank's operating performance;
       (ii) realistic and comprehensive budgets;
       (iii) a budget review process to monitor the income and expenses of the Bank to compare actual figures with budgetary projections on not less than a quarterly basis; and
       (iv) a description of the operating assumptions that form the basis for, and adequately support, major projected income and expense components.
   (b) Such written earnings plan and any subsequent modification thereto shall be submitted to the Regional Director and the Superintendent for review and comment. Within 30 days after the receipt of any comment from the Regional Director and the Superintendent, the board of directors shall approve the written earnings plan, which approval shall be recorded in the minutes of the meeting of the board of directors of the Bank. Thereafter, the Bank shall follow the written earnings plan and/or any subsequent modification thereto.

   [.5] 5. Within 60 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall develop, adopt and implement written policies and procedures designed to bring to the attention of each member of the board conflicts of interest which may exist in approving loans or other transactions in which officers, directors or principal stockholders of the Bank ("Insiders") are involved. Such policies and procedures shall, at a minimum, ensure that each member of the board has been apprised of any potential conflict prior to making a decision and has acted specifically on any loan or other transaction in which Insiders and/or their business associates are, directly or indirectly, involved. The results of board deliberations as to potential conflicts shall be reflected in the minutes of the meeting of the board of directors.

   [.6] 6. Within 10 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall eliminate from its books, by collection or chargeoff, all assets or portions of assets classified "Loss" and 50 percent of all assets or portions of assets classified "Doubtful" by the FDIC as a result of its examination of the Bank as of September 3, 1991, or by the Department as of its examination of the Bank as of June 30, 1991, which have not been previously charged off or collected. In addition, and so long as this ORDER remains in effect, the Bank shall, within 30 days from the receipt of any subsequent Report of Examination of the Bank from the FDIC or the Superintendent, eliminate from its books, by collection or charge-off, all assets or portions of assets classified "Loss" and 50 percent of all assets or portions of assets classified "Doubtful" in said Reports of Examination. Elimination of these assets through the use of the proceeds of loans or other extensions of credit made by the Bank does not constitute collection for the purposes of this ORDER.

   [.7] 7. (a) Within 360 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall reduce the remaining total of all assets {{12-31-92 p.C-2821}}classified "Doubtful" and "Substandard" by the FDIC as a result of its examination of the Bank as of September 3, 1991 or by the Department as a result of its examination of the Bank as of June 30, 1991, to not more than 100 percent of total capital plus ineligible allowance for loan and lease losses, and, within 540 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall reduce the remaining total of such assets to not more than 75 percent of total capital plus ineligible portion of allowance for loan and lease losses. The requirements of this paragraph 7(a) shall not be construed as a standard for future operations of the Bank. In addition to accomplishing the foregoing schedule or reductions, the Bank shall eventually reduce all adversely classified assets of the Bank.
   (b) As used in this ORDER, the word "reduce" means (i) to collect, (ii) to charge off, or (iii) to improve the quality of adversely classified assets sufficiently to warrant removing any adverse classification, as determined by the FDIC and the Department. Reduction of these assets through the use of the proceeds of loans or other extensions of credit made by the Bank does not constitute collection for the purposes of this ORDER.

   [.8] 8. (a) Immediately upon the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall not extend, either directly or indirectly, any new or additional credit (which, for the purposes of this ORDER, shall include the granting of renewals or extensions, or the capitalizing of accrued interest), other than for taxes, insurance, and routine maintenance, to or for the benefit of any borrower who is obligated in any manner to the Bank on any extension of credit, or portion thereof, which has been charged off the books of the Bank, in whole or in part, or to any affiliate or related interest of, or other person or entity associated with, any such borrower ("charged-off borrower"), so long as any portion of such extension of credit, whether or not that portion was charged off, remains uncollected.
   (b) Immediately upon the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall not extend, either directly or indirectly, any new or additional credit, other than for taxes, insurance, and routine maintenance, to or for the benefit of, any borrower who is obligated in any manner to the Bank on any loan or other extension of credit that has been adversely classified, in whole or in part, by the FDIC as a result of its examination of the Bank as of September 3, 1991 or by the Department as a result of its examination of the Bank as of June 30, 1991, or as a result of any subsequent examination of the Bank by the FDIC or the Department, or to any affiliate or related interest of, or other person or entity associated with, any such borrower ("classified borrower"), so long as such loan or other extension of credit remains classified or uncollected. This paragraph 8(b) shall not prohibit the Bank from renewing all or any part of an extension of credit to a classified borrower, after collection in cash of interest due on the entire extension of credit.
   (c) The prohibitions of paragraphs 8(a) and 8(b) shall not apply to any extension of credit to a charged-off or classified borrower, if:

       (i) the Bank's failure to extend further credit to a charged-off or classified borrower would be substantially detrimental to the best interests of the Bank;
       (ii) the extension of credit fully complies with the requirements of the Bank's written lending and collection policies and procedures;
       (iii) any extension of credit, regardless of amount, with respect to any problem asset, as defined in paragraph 9 of this ORDER, is supported by a current appraisal which at a minimum complies in all respects with the requirements of Part 323 of the FDIC's Rules and Regulations, 12 C.F.R. Part 323;
       (iv) a comparison with the written program adopted pursuant to paragraph 9 of this ORDER shows that the Bank's formal program to eliminate the basis of criticism of said problem asset is not compromised; and,
       (v) prior to extending any credit to a charged-off borrower, or a classified borrower whose outstanding loans or other extensions of credit exceed $100,000 in the aggregate, a majority of the Bank's full board of directors approves the extension of credit and certifies, in writing, the specific reasons why failure to so act would be substantially detrimental to the best interests of the Bank. A copy of the board's certification shall be maintained in the credit {{12-31-92 p.C-2822}}file of the charge-off or classified borrower.

   [.9] 9. (a) Within 60 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the board of directors of the Bank shall adopt and implement a written program with regard to each asset equal to or in excess of $500,000 criticized by the FDIC as a result of its examination of the Bank as of September 3, 1991 and by the Department as a result of its examination of the Bank as of June 30, 1991, so as to eliminate the basis of criticism of each such asset. This program shall include, at a minimum, an assessment of the status of each criticized asset, the proposed action for eliminating the basis of criticism, and the time frame for its accomplishment. Once all such programs are adopted, a copy of the program for each criticized asset which equals or exceeds $500,000 shall be forwarded to the Regional Director and the Superintendent. Furthermore, while this ORDER is in effect, the Bank's board of directors shall, within 30 days following receipt of any Report of Examination of the Bank from the FDIC or the Department, adopt and implement written programs, as specified above, for any assets criticized in said Reports, and forward copies of such programs to the Regional Director and the Superintendent. For the purposes of this ORDER, the term "criticized asset" means any asset, or portion thereof, scheduled as "Special Mention", "Substandard", or "Doubtful" in any Report of Examination of the Bank by the FDIC or the Department.
   (b) The Bank's board of directors shall conduct a review of each program adopted pursuant to paragraph 9(a) of this ORDER on at least a monthly basis, to determine:
       (i) the status of each criticized asset;
       (ii) management's adherence to each written program;
       (iii) the status and effectiveness of each written program; and
       (iv) the need to revise each written program and/or take other actions.
The board shall send quarterly progress reports on the status of each criticized asset equal to or exceeding $500,000 to the Regional Director and the Superintendent.

   [.10] 10. (a) Within 30 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the board of directors of the Bank shall revise, adopt, and implement the Bank's internal loan review and grading system for periodically reviewing the Bank's loan portfolio and identifying and categorizing problem credits ("System"). At a minimum, the System shall provide for:

       (i) identifying the overall quality of the loan portfolio;
       (ii) the identification and amount of each delinquent loan;
       (iii) an identification or grouping of loans that warrant the special attention of management;
       (iv) for each loan identified, a statement of the amount and an indication of the degree of risk that the loan will not be fully repaid according to its terms and the reasons why the particular loan merits special attention;
       (v) an identification of credit and collateral documentation exceptions;
       (vi) the identification and status of each violation of law, rule or regulation;
       (vii) an identification of loans not in conformance with the Bank's lending policy, and exceptions to the Bank's lending policy;
       (viii) an identification of insider loan transactions; and
       (ix) a mechanism for reporting periodically, but in any event no less than quarterly, to the board of directors on the status of each loan identified and the actions taken by operating management.
   (b) Copies of the reports submitted to the board, as well as documentation of the actions taken by the Bank to collect or strengthen assets identified as problem credits, shall be kept with the minutes of the board of directors.

   [.11] 11. Within 60 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank's board of directors shall adopt and implement a plan to increase the diversification of the Bank's asset portfolio. Such plan shall address, among other things, measures to be taken, target ratios to be met, and time frames for reducing the concentrations of credit which are detailed on page 2-b of the Report of Examination of the Bank by the FDIC as of {{12-31-92 p.C-2823}}September 3, 1991 and on page 9a of the Report of Examination of the Bank by the Department as of June 30, 1991.

   [.12] 12. Within 60 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall eliminate and/or correct all violations of law and/or regulations, as described on pages 6-a through 6-a-2 of the Report of Examination of the Bank by the FDIC as of September 3, 1991 and pages 3-a through 3-a-1 of the Report of Examination by the New York State Banking Department as of June 30, 1991, exclusive of the violations of Part 325 of the FDIC's Rules and Regulations, which shall be corrected as provided for in paragraph 2 of this ORDER.

       (d) That such declaration and payment of dividends shall be approved in advance, in writing, by the Regional Director and the Superintendent.
