LIST OF OTC M
ARKET M
AKERS
as of July 18, 1969
(Prepared for vise by banks in connection with extensions
of credit pursuant to section 221.3(w) of Regulation U)

This list of "OTC market makers" comprises firms
that have filed Form X-17A-12(1), the "Notification by OTC
market makers in OTC margin securities", with the Securities
and Exchange Commission, and the OTC margin stocks in respect
of which each such firm had filed such form, as of the above
date.
In determining whether a broker/dealer has filed
Form X-17A-12(1) in respect of OTC margin stock being pledged
as collateral to secure credit extended pursuant to section
221.3(w) (but for this purpose only), a bank may rely on the
most recent issue of this list, or a supplement thereto. A
bank extending such credit must also obtain from the broker/
dealer a properly executed Form F.R. U-2, and must accept
such form in good faith, as defined in sections 221.3(a) and
221.3(w) of Regulation U.
Copies of supplements and of subsequent issues of
the list may be obtained from the Federal Reserve Bank of the
district in which the head office of the bank extending such
credit is situated.

ADDRESS

OFFICIAL
TO

THE

CORRESPONDENCE
BOARD

In section 221.3(w) of Regulation U, effective August 8, 1969,
the Board of Governors has adopted a provision permitting banks to extend
credit without: regard to margin requirements to broker/dealer firms making
a market in stocks that are on the Board's List- of OTC Margin Stocks ("the
list"). Regulation U covers Credit by Banks for the Purpose of Purchasing
or Carrying Margin Stocks. This letter discusses, for your information,
some procedures to be followed by banks in extending credit pursuant to
this provision.
In order to qualify for credit pursuant to section 221.3(w), an
"OTC market-maker" must comply with the Securities and Exchange Commission's
Rule 17a-12, which was made public in its press release of July 3, 1969.
Essentially, the market-maker must (A) have filed with the Commission a
.
statement that it is making a market in an OTC margin stock (and file
required periodic reports thereafter), and (B) meet the other requirements
set forth in the Rule and in section 221.3(w), including having certain
minimum net capital, publishing bona fide competitive bid and offer quota­
tions on the stock, being ready, willing and able to effect transactions
in the stock, and having a reasonable average rate of inventory turnover.
In order to extend credit pursuant to section 221.3(w), a bank
must determine (A) that the borrower is a qualified OTC market-maker in
the stock being pledged to secure the credit, (B) that the stock being
pledged has not been identified as a security held for investment purposes,
under Internal Revenue Regulations, and (C) that the credit is being used
to conduct the market-making activity of the broker/dealer in the OTC mar­
gin stocks in which he is qualified with the Commission (although not
necessarily the same stock that serves as collateral for the loan). A
lending bank should be alert at all times for facts and circumstances
that might be inconsistent with any of these determinations. However,
in general, a bank would use primarily the following indications.

-

-

A list of qualified OTC market-makers and the stocks in which
they are qualified, as of July 18, 1969, will be available through the
Federal Reserve Bank of the district in which the bank's offices are
situated. This list cannot, of course, be fully up-to-date on marketmakers as of the August 8 effective date.
It is also anticipated that
broker/dealers will have occasion subsequently to qualify or de-qualify
in particular OTC margin stocks. For this reason, supplements to the
list will be available through the Federal Reserve Bank. Completely
revised lists will be issued from time to time as appropriate.
When a broker/dealer notifies the Commission that it has
ceased making a market in an OTC margin stock, it will include on the
form of notification a list of banks from which it is currently borrow­
ing. Each such bank will be notified by the Reserve Bank, by certified
mail, that pursuant to section 22.1.3(w) (3) of the regulation, credit on
the stock in question should henceforth be treated as subject to sec­
tion 221.1.
In determining that the OTC margin stock being pledged as
collateral is,not being held for investment, and that the credit is
being used to conduct the market-making activities of the broker/dealer
in the OTC margin stocks in which he is qualified, the lending bank may
rely on a statement furnished by the broker/dealer on Form F.R. U-2, if
the statement is executed by the broker/dealer and executed and accepted
by an officer of the bank in good faith, as defined in sections 221.3(a)
and 221.3(w), prior to the extension of credit. As stated above, in
accepting the form, the bank should be alert for any facts or circumstances
tending to indicate either that the broker/dealer was not performing a
market-making function in the stock, or that the pledged shares were
being held for investment purposes, or both.
Like the verification described above, a statement on Form
F.R. U-2. need be obtained only once, when a line of credit is opened
on the stock. No subsequent statement need be obtained in respect to
the same broker/dealer and the same OTC margin stock unless the bank
has, in the interim, been notified that the broker/dealer has ceased
making a market in the stock or the bank otherwise has reason to believe
that the broker/dealer is not in fact so acting.
In such an event, if
the brokerMealer requested a new line of exempt credit on the same stock,
the bank should verify with the Reserve Bank that the firm has re-qualified,
and a new Form F.R. U-2 should be obtained.
If a commercial bank has any further questions, it should contact
the Federal Reserve Bank of its district.
Very truly yours,

Kenneth A. Kenyon,
Deputy Secretary.
