FDIC-97-032b

{{9-30-00 p.C-4346.1}}    United Bank and Trust Company, New Orleans, Louisiana ("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)(1) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act ("Act"), 12 U.S.C. § 1818(b)(1), 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 April 21, 1997, 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:

{{7-31-97 p.C-4350}}
   (c) If all or part of the increase in Tier 1 capital required by Paragraph 5(a) of this ORDER is accomplished by the sale of new securities, the board of directors of the Bank shall 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.

   (e) For 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 subsections 325.2(t), and 325.2(v), 12 C.F.R. § § 325.2(t) and (v).

   (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.

       (iii) The extent to which loan renewals and extensions are used to maintain loans on a current basis and the degree of risk associated with such loans;
       (iv) The trend in loan growth, including any rapid increase in loan volume within a relatively short time period;
       (v) General and local economic conditions affecting the collectibility of the Bank's loans;
       (vi) Previous loan loss experience by loan type, including the trend of net chargeoffs as a percent of average loans over the past several years;
       (vii) Off balance sheet credit risks;
       (viii) The overall risk associated with each concentration of credit together with the degree of risk associated with each related individual borrower; and
       (ix) Any other factors appropriate in determining future valuation reserves.
{{7-31-97 p.C-4351}}
   (b) Prior to the submission of any Report of Condition or Report of Income, the board of directors of the Bank shall review the adequacy of the Bank's valuation reserve for loan and lease losses. The minutes of the board meetings at which each review is undertaken shall indicate the results of the review, the amount of any increase to the reserve, and the basis for the amount of the valuation reserve. The criteria for the review shall be as set forth in Paragraph 6(a).
   (c) Notwithstanding the provisions of Paragraph 6(a) and 6(b) above, as of the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall have achieved, a valuation reserve for loan and lease losses, as of September 30, 1996, after charge-off of loans classified "Loss" as required in Paragraph 7(a) below, of not less than $450,000.

   (f) The requirements of Paragraphs 7(a), 7(b), 7(c), 7(d), and 7(e) 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. As used in Paragraphs 7(b), 7(c), 7(d), 7(e), and 7(f) the word "reduce" 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 and the Commissioner.
   8. (a) 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 who has a loan or other extension of credit with the Bank that has been charged off or classified, in whole or in part, "Loss" and is uncollected. The requirements of this paragraph shall not prohibit the Bank from renewing (after collection in cash of interest due from the borrower) any credit already extended to any borrower.
   (b) Beginning with the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall not make any further extensions of credit, directly or indirectly, to any borrower whose loans are adversely classified "Substandard" as of September 30, 1996, without prior approval by the Bank's board of directors after the board's affirmative determination, as reflected in the minutes of the meeting that the extension of credit is in full compliance with the Bank's loan policy, that the extension of credit is necessary to protect the Bank's interest or is adequately secured, that credit analysis has determined the customer to be creditworthy, and that all necessary loan documentation is on file, including current financial and cash flow information and satisfactory appraisal, title and lien documents.
   9.

Such policies and their implementation shall be in a form and manner acceptable to the Regional Director and the Commissioner as determined at subsequent examinations and/or visitations.

   [.8] (b) Within 60 days after the effective date of this ORDER, the board of directors shall establish a loan review committee to periodically review the Bank's loan portfolio and identify and categorize problem credits. At least 50 percent of the members of the loan review committee shall be directors not employed in any capacity by the bank other than as a director. The committee shall file a report with the board of directors. This report shall include the following information:

The results of the comprehensive review and any measures adopted by the board of directors to ensure proper administration of the ESOP shall be recorded in the minutes of the meeting of the board.
   (b) The Bank shall not make any payments or contributions to the ESOP unless:

       (i) the board of directors has conducted an independent review of the action which includes, at a minimum, an assessment of:
