TITLE 26
BANKS AND BANKING
CHAPTER 26
IDAHO INTERSTATE BANKING ACT
26-2603.  Definitions. As used in this chapter:
(1)  "Applicant" means an out-of-state financial institution holding company which has submitted an application under section 26-2605, Idaho Code.
(2)  "Control." A person has "control" of a financial institution or financial institution holding company if the person:
(a)  Directly or indirectly, owns, controls or has the power to vote twenty-five percent (25%) or more of any class of voting securities of the financial institution or financial institution holding company;
(b)  The person, directly or indirectly, controls the election of a majority of the directors or trustees of the financial institution or financial institution holding company; or
(c)  The person, directly or indirectly, directs or exercises a controlling influence over the management or policies of the financial institution or financial institution holding company.
There is a rebuttable presumption that a person has control of a financial institution or financial institution holding company if the person owns, controls or has the power to vote five percent (5%) of more of the voting securities of the financial institution or financial institution holding company. Owning voting securities in a fiduciary capacity does not constitute "control" unless the director determines, after notice and an opportunity for hearing, that the person exercises a controlling influence over the management or policies of the financial institution or financial institution holding company. No person shall be deemed to have control of a financial institution or financial institution holding company by virtue of the person’s ownership or control of shares acquired by him in connection with his underwriting of shares in the financial institution or financial institution holding company which are held only for such period of time as will permit the sale thereof on an orderly and reasonable basis, and no person shall be deemed to have control of a financial institution or financial institution holding company by virtue of his ownership or control of shares acquired and held in the ordinary course of securing or collecting a debt previously contracted in good faith and which is held only for such period of time as will permit the sale thereof on an orderly and reasonable basis, which period of time shall have a duration of no more than two (2) years.
(3)  "Director" means the director of the department of finance.
(4)  "Financial institution" means any state bank, national bank, trust company, savings and loan association, savings bank, federal savings and loan association, federal savings bank, or credit union, as those terms are defined in title 26, Idaho Code, or any federal credit union organized under the federal credit union act (12 U.S.C. section 1751, et seq.). The term also includes any other institution which holds and receives deposits, savings or share accounts; issues certificates of deposit; or provides to its customers any deposit accounts which are subject to withdrawal by check, instrument, order or electronic means to effect third-party payments.
(5)  "Financial institution holding company" means a person, other than an individual, that has or acquires control over any financial institution.
(6)  "Idaho financial institution" means:
(a)  A financial institution chartered by or incorporated in the state of Idaho;
(b)  With respect to financial institutions chartered by the federal government, those which have their main office located in Idaho.
(7)  "Idaho financial institution holding company" means a financial institution holding company whose principal place of business is, and whose operations are principally conducted in, this state. "Idaho financial institution holding company" also means an out-of-state financial institution holding company which lawfully has control of an Idaho financial institution on the effective date of this chapter.
(8)  "In danger of failing" means a financial institution is in danger of failing if: (i) the financial institution is not likely to be able to meet the demands of its depositors or pay its obligations in the normal course and there is no reasonable prospect for it to do so without federal or other governmental assistance; or (ii) the financial institution has incurred or is likely to incur losses that will deplete all or substantially all of its capital and there is no reasonable prospect for replenishing the financial institutions’ capital without federal or other governmental assistance.
(9)  "Person" means a natural person, corporation, partnership, association, cooperative association, unincorporated association, trust or any other legal or commercial entity.
(10) "Principally conducted." The operations of a financial institution are "principally conducted" in the state in which the total deposits of the financial institution are largest. The operations of a financial institution holding company are principally conducted in the state in which the financial institution holding company’s financial institution subsidiary having the largest percentage of the total deposits of all of the financial institution subsidiaries of the holding company is located.
(11) "Out-of-state financial institution" means a financial institution whose operations are principally conducted outside this state.
(12) "Out-of-state financial institution holding company" means a financial institution holding company whose principal place of business is, and whose operations are principally conducted, outside this state.
