Reporting by FDIC-supervised Banks Using the Part 335 Electronic Filing System
FDIC-supervised banks whose equity securities are registered with the FDIC under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) and Part 335 of the FDIC's regulations (registered banks) may use FDICConnect to access the Part 335 electronic filing system for all reporting under the Exchange Act and Part 335. Periodic reports, such as Forms 10-K, 10-Q, and 8-K, all other Exchange Act reports, proxy solicitation material (preliminary and final), and all associated correspondence from banks or their representatives may be submitted electronically to the FDIC using the Part 335 electronic filing system. When reports and correspondence have been filed via the electronic filing system, paper copies of these documents need not be submitted to the FDIC.
To File Securities Disclosure Documents and Related Correspondence Using the Part 335 Electronic Filing System Within FDICconnect
Go to https://www2.fdicconnect.gov/ and click Sign In. After signing in to FDICConnnect, go to Reporting Required by the Securities Exchange Act under the "Applications, Filings and Institution Information" tab.
Next, select the type of document to be filed (e.g., Form 10-K Annual Report, Preliminary Proxy/Information Statement, and Nonpublic Correspondence) from the Item Name drop down menu and click Continue. If the Web page that appears correctly identifies the FDIC-supervised registered bank for which a document is being filed and the type of document to be filed, then click Continue.
On the next Web page, after updating the filing information, if necessary, click Add Files. On the next Web page, select the "File Type" on the drop down menu (i.e., Report, Proxy Material, or Correspondence) and then designate the appropriate "File Status" for the document to be filed, either Non-confidential (Public Files) for all public filings or Confidential (To Agency Staff) for general correspondence and the nonpublic portions of Confidential Treatment Requests.
Next, click Browse and select the document to be filed with the FDIC from your computer and click Insert or Open, depending on your computer system. The document's file name will appear in the "Original File Name" field. If the correct file name is shown, then click Attach File. The name of the attached file will then be identified in the "Attached Files" section of this Web page. The electronic filing system will enable you to attach additional documents that you wish to submit at the same time.
You will also be able to navigate the screens so that you may Preview the list of attached file(s) and either Submit the attached file(s) to the FDIC or Remove any attached file without submitting it.
Reports and other documents that require a signature should be signed manually and retained by the filer (bank, individual, or other legal entity). Electronically submitted documents should show "conformed" printed signatures for each person who has manually signed the original document.
FDIC-supervised banks are encouraged to submit comments about their experience with the Part 335 electronic filing system to PublicBankReports@fdic.gov.
