(1) A loan or extension of credit within a bank's legal lending limit when made will not be deemed a violation but will be treated as nonconforming if the loan or extension of credit is no longer in conformity with the bank's lending limit because:
(a) the bank's capital has declined, borrowers have subsequently merged or formed a common enterprise, lenders have merged, or the lending limit or capital rules changed;
(b) collateral securing the loan to satisfy the requirements of a lending limit exception has declined in value; or
(c) in the case of a credit exposure arising from a derivative transaction or a securities financing transaction and measured by either the Current Exposure Method or the Basel Collateral Haircut Method specified in ARM 2.59.129 and Appendix A to ARM 2.59.129 dated April 20, 2015, the credit exposure subject to the lending limits of 32-1-432, MCA, or this rule increases after execution of the transaction.
(2) A bank shall use reasonable efforts to bring a loan or extension of credit that is nonconforming as a result of (1)(a) or (1)(c) into conformity with the bank's lending limit unless to do so would be inconsistent with safe and sound banking practices.
(3) A bank shall bring a loan that is nonconforming as a result of circumstances described in (1)(b) into conformity with the bank's lending limit within 30 calendar days, except when judicial proceedings, regulatory actions or other extraordinary circumstances beyond the bank's control prevent it from taking action.
