Freddie Mac Announces First RPL Structured Sale of SLST Program in 2017

Moves Ahead with Second Transaction After Successful Pilot

MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwired - May 18, 2017) - Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today announced an approximate $292 million structured sale of a pool of seasoned re-performing loans from its mortgage investments portfolio. The pool is comprised of loans with step-rate modifications (primarily HAMP) and loans modified under GSE proprietary modifications. The pool consists of re-performing and moderately delinquent loans. The loans are currently being serviced by Select Portfolio Servicing, Inc.

This transaction will involve a two-step process. The initial step involves the sale of the loans via a competitive bidding process. The sale will be executed on the basis of economics, subject to meeting Freddie Mac's internal reserve levels. The second step will require the purchaser of the loans to securitize the loans and retain the first loss subordinate tranche. Freddie Mac will guarantee and acquire the senior security issued from such securitization and simultaneously re-securitize such interest. The resulting securities will be the Freddie Mac SLST Guaranteed Securities, Series 2017-1.

It is a key requirement of this transaction that the purchaser of the loans be an investor with substantial experience managing "high-risk" mortgage loans as well as substantial experience in securitizations.

Advisors to Freddie Mac on this transaction are Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and CastleOak Securities, L.P.

To date, Freddie Mac has sold $7 billion in nonperforming loans (NPLs), securitized $26 billion in re-performing loans (RPLs), and transacted $2 billion in structured offerings. Additional information about the company's seasoned loan offerings is at
