sales. The FDIC is statutorily required to promulgate a regulation
prohibiting the sale of assets held by insured depository institutions
that have been placed under the conservatorship or receivership of the
FDIC to certain individuals or entities who profited or engaged in
wrongdoing at the expense of those failed institutions, or seriously
mismanaged those failed institutions. The statute specifies classes of
from purchasing assets of failed institutions from the FDIC. (12 U.S.C.
1821(p)). The statutory requirement will be implemented by a recently
proposed regulation, ``Restrictions on the Purchase of Assets from the
FDIC,'' (published at 64 FR 51084, Sept. 21, 1999) and a Purchaser
Eligibility Certification that the FDIC will use to determine a
person's eligibility to purchase assets.
Dated: December 22, 1999.
