FEDERAL HOME LOAN BANK OF TOPEKA
June 30, 2012

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying interim financial statements of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Topeka (FHLBank) are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) for interim financial information and with the instructions provided by Article 10, Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. The financial statements contain all adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the FHLBank’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented. All such adjustments were of a normal recurring nature. The results of operations for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year or any other interim period.

The FHLBank’s significant accounting policies and certain other disclosures are set forth in the notes to the audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011. The interim financial statements presented herein should be read in conjunction with the FHLBank’s audited financial statements and notes thereto, which are included in the FHLBank’s annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on March 19, 2012 (annual report on Form 10-K). The notes to the interim financial statements highlight significant changes to the notes included in the annual report on Form 10-K.

Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements under GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions as of the date of the financial statements in determining the reported amounts of assets, liabilities and estimated fair values and in determining the disclosure of any contingent assets or liabilities. Estimates and assumptions by management also affect the reported amounts of income and expense during the reporting period. Many of the estimates and assumptions, including those used in financial models, are based on financial market conditions as of the date of the financial statements. Because of the volatility of the financial markets, as well as other factors that affect management estimates, actual results may vary from these estimates.

Reclassifications: Certain amounts in the financial statements and related footnotes have been reclassified to conform to current period presentations. Such reclassifications have no impact on total assets, net income or capital.
 

NOTE 2 – RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS AND INTERPRETATIONS AND CHANGES IN AND ADOPTIONS OF ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES

Offsetting Assets and Liabilities: In December 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) issued common disclosure requirements intended to help investors and other financial statement users better assess the effect or potential effect of offsetting arrangements on an entity’s financial position, regardless of whether an entity’s financial statements are prepared on the basis of GAAP or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). This guidance will require the FHLBank to disclose both gross and net information about financial instruments, including derivative instruments, which are either offset on its Statements of Condition or subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement or similar agreement. This guidance will be effective for the FHLBank for interim and annual periods beginning on January 1, 2013 and will be applied retrospectively for all comparative periods presented. The adoption of this guidance will result in increased interim and annual financial statement disclosures, but will not affect the FHLBank’s financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

Comprehensive Income – Presentation of Comprehensive Income: In June 2011, FASB issued guidance which requires all non-owner changes in stockholders’ equity to be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. The option to present the components of other comprehensive income (OCI) as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity has been eliminated by this new guidance. The FHLBank decided to present non-owner changes using the two-statement approach. The two-statement approach requires the first statement to present total net income and its components followed, consecutively, by a second statement that presents total OCI, the components of OCI, and total comprehensive income. The guidance was effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011, including retrospective application for all periods presented. The FHLBank adopted this guidance as of January 1, 2012. The adoption of this guidance resulted in new presentation within the Statements of Income and the Statements of Capital, but did not impact the FHLBank’s financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

In December 2011, the FASB issued guidance to defer the effective date of the new requirement to present reclassifications of items out of accumulated OCI (AOCI) in the income statement. This guidance became effective for the FHLBank for interim and annual periods beginning on January 1, 2012 and did not affect the FHLBank’s adoption of the remaining guidance contained in the new accounting standard for the presentation of comprehensive income.

Fair Value Measurement – Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurements and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs: In May 2011, the FASB issued guidance which represents the converged guidance of FASB and the IASB on fair value measurement and disclosures. In particular, the new guidance: (1) requires the disclosure of the level within the fair value hierarchy level for financial instruments that are not measured at fair value but for which the fair value is required to be disclosed; (2) expands level 3 fair value disclosures about valuation process and sensitivity of the fair value measurement to changes in unobservable inputs; (3) permits an exception to measure fair value of a net position for financial assets and financial liabilities managed on a net position basis; and (4) clarifies that the highest and best use measurement is only applicable to nonfinancial assets. The guidance was effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011 with early application not permitted. The FHLBank adopted this guidance as of January 1, 2012. The adoption of this guidance resulted in increased financial statement disclosures, but did not impact the FHLBank’s financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

Transfers and Servicing – Reconsideration of Effective Control for Repurchase Agreements: In April 2011, the FASB issued guidance that removed the criterion which required the transferor of financial assets to have the ability to repurchase or redeem the financial assets on substantially the agreed terms, even in the event of default by the transferee to preclude sales accounting for the transfer. In addition, the new guidance removed the collateral maintenance implementation guidance from the determination of maintaining effective control over the transferred financial assets. This guidance became effective for interim and annual periods beginning on or after December 15, 2011 and was required to be applied prospectively to transactions or modifications occurring on or after the effective date. The FHLBank adopted this guidance as of January 1, 2012. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the FHLBank’s financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

Other-than-temporary Impairment: The FHLBank evaluates its individual held-to-maturity investment securities holdings in an unrealized loss position for other-than-temporary impairment (OTTI) at least quarterly, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that these investments may be other-than-temporarily impaired. As part of this process, if the fair value of a security is less than its amortized cost basis, the FHLBank considers its intent to sell the debt security and whether it is more likely than not that it will be required to sell the debt security before its anticipated recovery. If either of these conditions is met, the FHLBank recognizes an OTTI charge in earnings equal to the entire difference between the debt security’s amortized cost and its fair value as of the balance sheet date. For securities in unrealized loss positions that meet neither of these conditions, the FHLBank performs an analysis to determine if any of these securities are other-than-temporarily impaired.

For state and local housing agency obligations, the FHLBank has determined that, as of June 30, 2012, all of the gross unrealized losses on these bonds are temporary because the strength of the underlying collateral and credit enhancements was sufficient to protect the FHLBank from losses based on current expectations.

For Agency MBS, the FHLBank determined that the strength of the issuers’ guarantees through direct obligations or support from the U.S. government is sufficient to protect the FHLBank from losses based on current expectations. As a result, the FHLBank has determined that, as of June 30, 2012, all of the gross unrealized losses on its Agency MBS are temporary.

The FHLBanks’ OTTI Governance Committee, which is comprised of representation from all 12 FHLBanks, has responsibility for reviewing and approving the key modeling assumptions, inputs and methodologies to be used by the FHLBanks to generate cash flow projections used in analyzing credit losses and determining OTTI for private-label MBS/ABS. To support consistency among the FHLBanks, FHLBank Topeka completed its OTTI analysis primarily based upon cash flow analysis prepared by FHLBank of San Francisco on behalf of FHLBank Topeka using key modeling assumptions provided by the FHLBanks’ OTTI Governance Committee for the majority of its private-label residential MBS and home equity loan ABS. Certain private-label MBS backed by multi-family and commercial real estate loans, home equity lines of credit and manufactured housing loans were outside of the scope of the OTTI Governance Committee and were analyzed for OTTI by the FHLBank utilizing other methodologies.

For private-label commercial MBS, consistent with the other FHLBanks, the FHLBank assesses the creditworthiness of the issuer, the credit ratings assigned by the Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organizations (NRSRO), the performance of the underlying loans and the credit support provided by the subordinate securities to make a conclusion as to whether the commercial MBS will be settled at an amount less than the amortized cost basis. The FHLBank had only one private-label commercial MBS as of June 30, 2012, and its fair value was higher than its amortized cost, so it was not reviewed for impairment.

An OTTI cash flow analysis is run by FHLBank of San Francisco for each of the FHLBank’s remaining private-label MBS/ABS using the FHLBank System’s common platform and agreed-upon assumptions. For certain private-label MBS/ABS where underlying collateral data is not available, alternative procedures as determined by each FHLBank are used to assess these securities for OTTI.

The evaluation includes estimating projected cash flows that are likely to be collected based on assessments of all available information about each individual security, including the structure of the security and certain assumptions as determined by the FHLBanks’ OTTI Governance Committee such as the remaining payment terms for the security, prepayment speeds, default rates, loss severity on the collateral supporting the FHLBank’s security based on underlying loan-level borrower and loan characteristics, expected housing price changes, and interest rate assumptions, to determine whether the FHLBank will recover the entire amortized cost basis of the security. In performing a detailed cash flow analysis, the FHLBank identifies the best estimate of the cash flows expected to be collected. If this estimate results in a present value of expected cash flows (discounted at the security’s effective yield) that is less than the amortized cost basis of a security (that is, a credit loss exists), an OTTI is considered to have occurred.

 
15

 
To assess whether the entire amortized cost basis of securities will be recovered, the FHLBank of San Francisco, on behalf of the FHLBank, performed a cash flow analysis using two third-party models. The first third-party model considers borrower characteristics and the particular attributes of the loans underlying the FHLBank’s securities, in conjunction with assumptions about future changes in home prices and interest rates, to project prepayments, defaults and loss severities. A significant input to the first model is the forecast of future housing price changes for the relevant states and core based statistical areas (CBSAs), which are based upon an assessment of the individual housing markets. CBSA refers collectively to metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas as defined by the United States Office of Management and Budget; as currently defined, a CBSA must contain at least one urban area of 10,000 or more people. The FHLBank’s housing price forecast assumed current-to-trough home price declines ranging from 0 percent (for those housing markets that are believed to have reached the trough) to 6 percent. For those markets where further home price declines are anticipated, the declines were projected to occur over the three- to nine-month period beginning April 1, 2012. For the vast majority of markets where further home price declines are anticipated, the declines were projected to range from 1 percent to 4 percent over the 3-month period beginning April 1, 2012. From the trough, home prices were projected to recover using one of five different recovery paths that vary by housing market. The following table presents projected home price recovery by months as of June 30, 2012:

The month-by-month projections of future loan performance derived from the first model, which reflect projected prepayments, defaults and loss severities, are then input into a second model that allocates the projected loan level cash flows and losses to the various security classes in the securitization structure in accordance with its prescribed cash flow and loss allocation rules. In a securitization in which the credit enhancement for the senior securities is derived from the presence of subordinate securities, losses are generally allocated first to the subordinate securities until their principal balances are reduced to zero. The projected cash flows are based on a number of assumptions and expectations, and the results of these models can vary significantly with changes in assumptions and expectations. The scenario of cash flows determined based on model approach reflects a best estimate scenario and includes a base case current-to-trough housing price forecast and a base case housing price recovery path.

As a result of these security-level evaluations, the projected cash flows as of June 30, 2012 on 18 private-label MBS/ABS indicated that the FHLBank would not receive all principal and interest payments throughout the remaining lives of these securities. On six additional securities, the evaluation resulted in additional credit losses recognized in earnings because the present value of the expected cash flows was less than the amortized cost. An additional seven securities that had been previously identified as other-than-temporarily impaired have had improvements in their cash flows such that neither principal nor interest shortfalls are currently projected. Consequently, the FHLBank expects to recover the entire amortized cost of these securities and to amortize the entire OTTI balance through to maturity. The OTTI amount related to non-credit losses represents the difference between the current fair value of the security and the present value of the FHLBank’s best estimate of the cash flows expected to be collected, which is calculated as described previously. The OTTI amount recognized in OCI is accreted to the carrying value of the security on a prospective basis over the remaining life of the security. That accretion increases the carrying value of the security and continues until the security is sold or matures, or there is an additional OTTI that is recognized in earnings. The FHLBank does not intend to sell any of these securities, nor is it more likely than not that the FHLBank will be required to sell these securities before its anticipated recovery of the remaining amortized cost basis of each OTTI security.

For those securities for which an OTTI was determined to have occurred as of June 30, 2012 (that is, securities for which the FHLBank determined that it was more likely than not that the amortized cost basis would not be recovered), the following tables present a summary of the significant inputs used to measure the amount of credit loss recognized in earnings during this period as well as related current credit enhancement. Credit enhancement is defined as the percentage of subordinated tranches and over-collateralization, if any, in a security structure that will generally absorb losses before the FHLBank will experience a loss on the security. The calculated averages represent the dollar-weighted averages of all the private-label MBS/ABS investments in each category shown. Private-label MBS/ABS are classified as prime, Alt-A and subprime based on the originator’s classification at the time of origination or based on classification by an NRSRO upon issuance of the MBS.
