Description: The FR MM-10(o)-2 is used by a subsidiary holding company of a Mutual Holding Company (MHC) that wishes to issue stock to any person other than its MHC parent pursuant to section 239.24 of Regulation MM. Applications regarding stock issuances by subsidiary holding companies provide the Federal Reserve with information to determine, among other things, whether the applicant would use the proceeds of the stock issuance appropriately and whether the proposed transaction would provide the organization with sufficient capital, meet the convenience and needs of the organization's communities, and ensure the rights of its members. An applicant must provide a stock issuance plan containing the information required by section 239.25 of Regulation MM, as well as the information requested in the General Instructions to FR MM-10(o)-2, including financial and capital information, the aggregate amount of outstanding common stock of the subsidiary holding company owned or controlled by persons other than the MHC parent, and the proposed price or price range of the stock to be issued.
