Freddie Mac Sells $43.7 Million NPLs to Non-Profit Buyer

MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwired - Jul 1, 2016) -  Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today announced it sold via auction 189 deeply delinquent non-performing loans (NPLs) serviced by Bayview Loan Servicing, LLC from its mortgage investment portfolio. The transaction is expected to settle in September 2016, and servicing will be transferred post-settlement. The sale is part of Freddie Mac's Extended Timeline Pool Offerings (EXPO®) and Community Loan Fund of New Jersey, Inc., a non-profit, is the winning bidder. Freddie Mac, through its advisors, began marketing the transaction on May 25, 2016, to potential bidders, including minority and women-owned businesses (MWOBs), non-profits, neighborhood advocacy funds and private investors active in the NPL market.

The loans have been delinquent for almost five years, on average. Given the deep delinquency status of the loans, the borrowers have likely been evaluated previously for or are already in various stages of loss mitigation, including modification or other alternatives to foreclosure, or are in foreclosure. Mortgages that were previously modified and subsequently became delinquent comprise approximately 33 percent of the aggregate pool balance. The aggregate pool is geographically concentrated in Florida and has a loan-to-value ratio of approximately 93 percent, based on Broker Price Opinion (BPO). Both pools sold at a weighted average price in the mid-70s.

The pools and winning bidders are summarized below:
