Freddie Mac to Eliminate Clean-Up Call Rights from Single-Family Multiclass Certificates & Multifamily Structured Pass-Through Certificates

Will Not Exercise Existing Clean-up Call Rights in Those Programs

MCLEAN, Va., Sept. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today announced that it will no longer include issuer clean-up call rights in its Single-Family Multiclass Certificates (REMIC and MACR Certificates) and Multifamily Structured Pass-Through Certificates (“Multifamily SPCs”) (including, for example, K-Certificates).

In addition, Freddie Mac announced that, consistent with its prior practice, it will continue not to exercise existing clean-up call rights related to outstanding Single-Family Multiclass Certificates and Multifamily SPCs.

Clean-up calls are redemption rights exercisable at the option of the issuer to redeem securities with a de minimis outstanding principal balance.

Offers for any given security are made only through applicable offering circulars and related supplements, which incorporate Freddie Mac's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on February 15, 2018; all other reports Freddie Mac filed with the SEC pursuant to Section 13(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) since December 31, 2017, excluding any information "furnished" to the SEC on Form 8-K; and all documents that Freddie Mac files with the SEC pursuant to Sections 13(a), 13(c) or 14 of the Exchange Act, excluding any information "furnished" to the SEC on Form 8-K.
