Freddie Mac Releases 2016 K Certificates Issuance Calendar

MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2015) - Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today released its inaugural 2016 K-Deal Issuance Calendar to increase transparency and to demonstrate a consistent level of potential investment opportunities in the new year. The Calendar is available on K Certificates page of the company's web site at www.FreddieMac.com.

"The Freddie Mac K Series is the benchmark for Agency CMBS and this Issuance Calendar will allow investors to better plan their capital allocations," said Freddie Mac Vice President of Multifamily Capital Markets Securitization Robert Koontz. "We issued over $35 billion in K-Deals in 2015, our largest issuance year to date but we expect to top that in 2016."

Freddie Mac Multifamily is a leading issuer of agency-guaranteed structured multifamily securities. K-Deals are part of the company's business strategy to transfer a portion of the risk of losses away from taxpayers and to private investors who purchase the unguaranteed subordinate bonds.
