WASHINGTON, DC -- Fannie Mae (FNM/NYSE) today announced it has completed its review of certain MBS and Fannie Mae Mega® pools with subtype discrepancies.

Following up on our January 4, 2006 announcement entitled "Fannie Mae Corrects Subtypes of Certain MBS Pools," the company corrected 392 MBS pool subtypes and will correct another 307 subtypes in this month's reporting cycle. Fannie Mae is in the process of correcting an additional 22 MBS pools that will be reflected in April's reporting cycle. All of these MBS pools with subtype corrections are or will be eligible for re-securitization into Mega or REMIC pools.
