FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION

RE: Metrobank Los Angeles, California

Application Pursuant to Section 24(a) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act to Indirectly Continue Activity That May Not Be Permissible for a National Bank

STATEMENT

Pursuant to the provisions of section 24 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, application has been filed with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation by Metrobank, Los Angeles, California ("Metro"). The applicant requests the Corporation's consent to continue real estate investment activities through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Metrocorp, Inc. ("MI).

Metro, which meets the definition of "well capitalized" within the meaning of Part 325 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's rules and regulations, is in compliance with applicable capital standards. In addition, the real estate holdings of MI do not appear to pose a significant risk to the Bank Insurance Fund.

Accordingly, the Associate Director, Division of Supervision, acting on behalf of the Corporation under delegated authority, has concluded that the application should be approved. Such approval should not be construed as a determination that any particular activity is not permissible for a national bank, or a subsidiary of a national bank, and any action by the Corporation on the application is taken without prejudice as to whether or not an application was needed.
