For Immediate Release December 2, 2003

The September 30, 2003 Uniform Bank Performance Report (UBPR) is now available on line at WWW.FFIEC.GOV. The online version of the UBPR includes 5 years of continuous financial history that is restated quarterly to reflect call report amendments and new analytical tools. Please visit the UBPR section of the website for further information including suggestions for using the website and a schedule of planned updates and enhancements. Additionally, a User's Guide is available online for technical explanations of UBPR data.

UBPRs are available to bank supervisors, banks, the public and all interested parties at the FFIEC web site. There is no fee. Because no registration or sign-on is needed it is fully open to all users.

The quarterly UBPR is designed for use by bank examiners, financial analysts and bank managers, and permits both summary and in-depth analysis of commercial banks plus FDIC-ISB financial performance and trends.

The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) is making available computer tapes of UBPR data for the September 30, 2003 edition. These tapes contain bulk data for banks, peer groups and states, and are expected to be of interest to requestors who use large-scale bank data such as quarterly Call Report tapes.

The FFIEC also makes all UBPR statistical reports available on line. Available are the September 30, 2003 version of the UBPR Peer Group Ratio Distribution Report and the UBPR Peer Group Report. The distribution report gives users a distribution of values ranging from the 1st through the 99th percentile for all UBPR ratios. The Peer Group Report summarizes peer group average information for all peer groups used in the UBPR. Both reports are formatted the same as an individual bank UBPR. Printed copies of the UBPR for individual banks are also available. All of these printed reports may be ordered for a fee by calling UBPR Products below.

The User's Guide for the Uniform Bank Performance Report revised December 2002 is available at: WWW.FFIEC.GOV

The FFIEC was established in March 1979 to prescribe uniform principles, standards, and report forms and to promote uniformity in the supervision of financial institutions. The Council has five member agencies: the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the National Credit Union Administration, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Office of Thrift Supervision. The Council's activities are supported by interagency task forces and by an advisory State Liaison Committee, comprised of five representatives of state agencies that supervise financial institutions.
