"This document presents the Senior Subordinated Security (Note*) issued by a participating Credit Union to an Investor.
Conclusion: The terms and conditions of the Note reflect the terms and conditions of the Program presented in the Agreement. The Note terms and conditions are also consistent and not in conflict with the requirements for secondary capital found in applicable rules of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) at 12 C.F.R. Section 701.34. Consequently, a low-income designated, CDFI qualified federal credit union may issue the Note.
This review does not indicate or endorse participation in the Program by a low-income, CDFI certified federal credit union. Each credit union seeking to participate in the Program should carefully review the requirements of the Program with competent counsel before undertaking the obligations attendant to participation.
Analysis: The Note is cast as an 8-year or 13-year obligation bearing interest at two (2%) percent, per annum until the eighth anniversary of the date and for 13-year Notes, at nine (9%) percent per annum until maturity after the eighth anniversary of the date of issuance, payable quarterly in arrears on February 15, May 15, August 15 and November 15 of each year. The Note may be prepaid at any time [See, Section 6.10 of the Agreement]. The Note is not an insured deposit in a federal credit union insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. The Note to the extent provided in the Agreement, is subordinate and junior in right of payment to all deposit liabilities of the Credit Union and to the Credit Union’s debt obligations to its general and secured creditors, except under limited circumstances, as required by applicable rules of the NCUA and the Federal Credit Union Act, 12 U.S.C. Section 1751 et seq.
