Mergers, Name Changes, and Other Corporate Activity
FCA is responsible for issuing corporate charters to all Farm Credit System institutions. Therefore, when institutions merge, change their names, and make other corporate changes, they must have these actions approved through FCA.
Note: FCA views an Agricultural Credit Association (ACA) and its Production Credit Association (PCA) and Federal Land Credit Association (FLCA) subsidiaries as a single entity for most regulatory purposes.
On March 28, 2013, Northern California Farm Credit, ACA, and Federal Land Bank Association of Kingsburg, FLCA, requested FCA to grant preliminary approval of a merger between the associations.
FCA Amends Charters of Associations for Name Changes
FCA amended the charter of Farm Credit Services of Mid-America, ACA, to change its name to Farm Credit Mid-America, ACA. FCA also amended the charters of the ACA’s FLCA and PCA subsidiaries. The subsidiary names changed to Farm Credit Mid-America, FLCA, and Farm Credit Mid-America, PCA. The amended charters took effect on January 31, 2013.
To find out the number of banks and associations in the FCS, how they are classified, and how their numbers have changed over the past 12 months, see Number of FCS Banks and Associations.
