WASHINGTON, D.C. — Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) priced its fourth and fifth Multifamily DUS REMICs in 2011 with a combined total of $954 million, under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMSTM) program on Friday, September 9, 2011. Within hours of announcing the issuance of FNA 2011-M5, totaling $550 million, the deal was highly oversubscribed. Responding to robust demand and employing the flexibility of the Fannie Mae GeMS program, Fannie Mae subsequently announced the issuance of FNA 2011-M6, totaling $404 million.

"We were surprised by the overwhelming demand for the last cash flow tranche. We were pleased the A2 classes traded at S+78. However, it became clear that investors needed more bonds than we originally imagined, so we worked with Credit Suisse to structure and issue another GeMS REMIC for settlement this month. It was the first time we brought a new GeMS REMIC to Market in under 24 hours," said Kimberly Johnson, Vice President Multifamily Capital Markets.

All classes of both offerings, FNA 2011-M5 and FNA 2011-M6, are guaranteed by Fannie Mae with respect to the full and timely payment of interest and principal. Yield maintenance prepayment premiums apply to all underlying loans. The structure details for the multi-tranche offerings are included in the tables below.
