Creation of a direct financial obligation or obligation under an off-balance sheet arrangement of a registrant
The Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta (the “Bank”) obtains most of its funds from the sale of debt securities, called consolidated bonds, in the capital markets. Consolidated bonds, which consist of bonds and discount notes, are, by regulation, the joint and several obligations of the eleven federal mortgage lending banks. Federal mortgage lending banks are regulated by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (the “Financial Agency”), and the Financial Agency regulations authorize the Financial Agency to require any federal mortgage lending bank to it repays all or part of the principal or interest on obligations for which another Federal Home Loan Bank is the principal debtor. Consolidated bonds are sold to the public through the Finance Office using licensed securities brokers. The consolidated bonds are backed only by the financial resources of the eleven federal mortgage banks and are not guaranteed by the United States government.
Schedule A lists all of the Consolidated Bonds and Discount Notes to be issued by the Federal Mortgage Banks, for which the Bank is the principal obligor, on the stated trading dates, except for the Discount Notes of maturities of one year or less that are issued in the normal course of business. Schedule A also includes all consolidated bonds with a residual maturity of more than one year, if any, for which we have assumed the primary repayment obligation from another federal mortgage bank.
We may choose to change our method of reporting information about the issuance or assumption of consolidated obligations at any time. When reviewing the information in this current report on Form 8-K, please note:
• although the issuance of consolidated bonds is important for the Bank, we have not passed judgment on the importance of one or more particular consolidated bonds;
• Appendix A does not address foreign exchange interest rate agreements (or other derivative instruments) that we may enter into as a result of our asset and liability management strategies and which may be directly associated with or indirectly, to one or more of the consolidated bonds;
• Schedule A will not allow the reader to follow changes in the total outstanding consolidated obligations for which we are the primary obligor, as Schedule A generally excludes consolidated bond discount notes with a maturity of ” one year or less and does not specify whether the proceeds from the issuance of the declared consolidated bonds will be used, among other things, to replace the called or maturing consolidated bonds. We will report the total outstanding consolidated obligations for which we are the principal obligor in our periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission; and
• the principal amounts declared in appendix A represent the principal amount of consolidated bonds declared at par, which may not correspond to the amounts declared in our financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles contained in our periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as the nominal amount does not take into account, among other things, discounts, bonuses or concessions.
