1 Unused commitments are the amounts still available for lending under official promises to
lend that are expressly conveyed to the bank's customers orally or in writing, usually m the form of
a formally executed agreement signed by one of the bank's officers.
^Commitments for term loans are those for loans with an original maturity of more than 1 year
^Revolving credits are commitment agreements whereby the borrower may draw and repay
loans at will with no repayment penalty and under which the commitment rebounds by an equal
amount after a takedown has been repaid.
^Other commitments are expressions of willingness to lend, other than for term loans and re-




volving credits, that are made known to the customer and are characterized by detailed formal
agreements specifying the terms and conditions under which a loan is to be made.
^Confirmed lines of credit represent general expressions of willingness to lend, other than for
term loans or revolving credits, that are made known to the customer but are not characterized by
detailed formal agreements specifying the terms and conditions under which a loan is to be made.
NOTE.-Included in this series are 136 weekly reporting banks; these banks account for
approximately 85 per cent of commercial and industrial loans, 95 per cent of nonbank financial
loans, and 75 per cent of real estate loans of all weekly reporting banks. Individual items may not
add to totals due to rounding.
