OREANDA-NEWS. By its Order No. OD-3099, dated 10 November 2015, the Bank of Russia revoked the banking licence from the Moscow-based credit institution Commercial Bank Regional Savings Bank, limited liability company, or CB RSB LLC (Registration No. 3367) from 10 November 2015.

The Bank of Russia took such an extreme measure - revocation of the banking licence - because of the credit institution's failure to comply with federal banking laws and Bank of Russia regulations, capital adequacy below 2%, decrease in equity capital below the minimal amount of the authoruised capital established as of the date of the state registration of the credit institution, and taking account of repeated application over the past year of supervisory measures envisaged by the Federal Law 'On the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (Bank of Russia)'.

The supervision over the activity of CB RSB LLC revealed unsatisfactory quality of its assets. Adequate credit risk assessment at the supervisor's request revealed the complete loss of equity capital by the credit institution. The management and owners of the bank did not take measures to normalise its activities. In these circumstances, pursuant to Article 20 of the Federal Law 'On Banks and Banking Activities', the Bank of Russia revoked the banking licence from CB RSB LLC.

By its Order No. OD-3100, dated 10 November 2015, the Bank of Russia has appointed a provisional administration to CB RSB LLC for the period until the appointment of a receiver pursuant to the Federal Law 'On Insolvency (Bankruptcy)' or a liquidator under Article 23.1 of the Federal Law 'On Banks and Banking Activities'. In accordance with federal laws, the powers of the credit institution's executive bodies are suspended.

CB RSB LLC is a member of the deposit insurance system. The revocation of banking licence is an insured event envisaged by Federal Law No. 177-FZ 'On Insurance of Household Deposits with Russian Banks' regarding the bank's obligations on deposits of households determined in accordance with the legislation. This Federal Law provides for the payment of insurance indemnity to the bank's depositors, including individual entrepreneurs, in the amount of 100% of their balances but not exceeding the total of 1.4 million rubles per depositor.

According to the financial statements, as of 1 October 2015, CB RSB LLC ranked 329th by assets in the Russian banking system.
