Freddie Mac Posts LIBOR-Indexed Securities Fallback Rate Information to DTCC LENS, Updates Legacy LIBOR CUSIP List

MCLEAN, Va., May 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today announced that, in addition to the fallback information on Freddie Mac legacy LIBOR-indexed securities currently posted to Freddie Mac's Reference Rates Transition webpage, it has posted that information to the LIBOR Replacement Index Communication solution using The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation’s (DTCC) Legal Notice System (LENS). Freddie Mac securities will transition from LIBOR to replacement indices based on the Secured Overnight Funding Rate (SOFR), beginning on July 1, 2023.

“This solution will provide investors and others who subscribe to DTCC LENS a second channel for accessing LIBOR fallback information on Freddie Mac securities,” said Freddie Mac Treasurer, Ameez Nanjee, program sponsor for the enterprise’s LIBOR Transition. “We appreciate the ongoing solutions that the ARRC has provided to the market to help facilitate a smooth transition away from LIBOR.”

Data available through DTCC LENS is for informational purposes only. The Consolidated CUSIP List on Freddie Mac’s Reference Rates Transition webpage, updated May 11, 2023, with additional security types, is the free and definitive source for the consolidated listing of impacted CUSIPs. The CUSIP list shows the prior index and replacement index for each security.
