As used in this part:
Actual quarterly payment means the quarterly amount paid by the Banks to fulfill the Banks' obligation to pay toward interest owed on bonds issued by the REFCORP. The amount will equal the aggregate of 20 percent of the quarterly net earnings of each Bank, or such other amount assessed in accordance with the Act and the regulations adopted thereunder.
Benchmark quarterly payment means $75 million, or such amount that may result from adjustments required by calculations made in accordance with §§ 997.2 and 997.3.
Current benchmark quarterly payment means the benchmark quarterly payment that corresponds to the date of the actual quarterly payment.
Deficit quarterly payment means the amount by which the actual quarterly payment falls short of the current benchmark quarterly payment.
Estimated interest rate means the interest rate provided to the Finance Board by the Department of the Treasury on a zero-coupon Treasury bond, the maturity of which is the same as the date of the benchmark quarterly payment that is being defeased, or if no bond matures on that date, then is the date closest to the date of the payment being defeased.
Excess quarterly payment means the amount by which the actual quarterly payment exceeds the current benchmark quarterly payment.
Quarterly present-value determination means the quarterly calculation that will determine the extent to which an excess quarterly payment or deficit quarterly payment alters the term of the Banks' obligation to the REFCORP. This determination will fulfill the requirements of 21B(f)(2)(C)(ii) of the Act (12 U.S.C 1441b(f)(2)(C)(ii), as amended by Pub. L. 106-102, sec. 607, 113 Stat.1456-57.
