MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) recently priced a new offering of Multifamily WI K-Deal Certificates (WI Certificates), which are initially backed by cash assets that will be used to purchase the A-2 and A-M classes of a to-be-issued reference K-Deal. Once the reference K-Deal class is issued and purchased by the WI trust, the WI Certificates will be indirectly backed by a pool of fixed-rate multifamily mortgages with predominantly 10-year terms. The company expects to issue approximately $845 million in WI Certificates (Series WI-K141), which are expected to settle on or about February 16, 2022.
“Our latest WI deal, WI-K141, is the second execution of our WI deals including both A-M and A-2 class bonds and an important step towards eventually moving the entire principal-bearing guaranteed portion of a deal to the forward-funded structure,” said Robert Koontz, senior vice president of Freddie Mac Multifamily Capital Markets.
