Fannie Mae Purchases Certain FHA-Insured, VA-Guaranteed, and USDA-Guaranteed Mortgage Loans Backing Fannie Mae Multi-Class Structured Securities

Fannie Mae has conducted an additional purchase of certain eligible mortgage loans from certain existing trusts, which will result in an unscheduled distribution of principal to investors in the related securities on the March 2017 distribution date.

For certain Fannie Mae multi-class structured securities backed by FHA-insured, VA-guaranteed, and USDA-guaranteed government mortgage loans, the servicer is permitted to reduce the interest rate of any mortgage loan without removing the loan from the trust.

Following an interest rate reduction, the seller is required to fund any interest payment shortfall created by the interest rate reduction. Where the seller fails to fund the required amounts following an interest rate reduction, Fannie Mae has the option to purchase impacted mortgage loans from the related trust. Any such purchase will have the effect of a prepayment in full of the purchased mortgage loans.

The following table lists the affected trusts as well as the related collateral group, approximate aggregate scheduled unpaid principal balance and approximate percentage of loans in the related collateral group that will be included in Fannie Mae’s purchase of FHA-insured, VA-guaranteed, and USDA-guaranteed mortgage loans.
