Eardley Caine Livestock Co - The loan is capital, there being little, if any, equity above the amount of the loan. Comment regarding loans to three individuals Above loans are all secured by stock of the Eccles Investment Company. The stock of the company is closely held and there is no established • market. The company's statement reveals a book value which would provide an excess of security in each case, but since the collateral is not of a marketable character, the loans should be further supported by financial statements of the borrowers.

Loan should h ve the guarantee or endorsement of the principals. Line reduced since last report. Comment on the three individual loans The loans are secured by stock of the Eocles Investment Company, a holding corporation for assets owned by members of the Eccles Family. Assets are principally represented by capital investments in a diversity of business interests, including a sizeable investment in stock of the First Security Corporation. The desirability of the stock as collateral is dependent on its dividend paying* ability, which is nominal under present conditions. It is recommended that the above loans be additionally secured by pledging additional investment company shares, and avoid further increase of the lines* Examination report June 50f 1955 - First National Bank of Ogden By E.
