FHFA Updates Projections of Potential Draws for Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) today released updated projections of the financial performance of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, including potential draws under the Senior Preferred Stock Purchase Agreements (PSPAs) with the U.S. Department of the Treasury. These updated projections show cumulative
Treasury draws that are reduced and more stable compared to previous projections. The key drivers of those results include an overall reduction in actual and projected credit-related expenses and changes in the dividend structure contained in the PSPAs, which eliminates the need to borrow from Treasury to pay dividends.

FHFA first released financial projections in October 2010, and has provided updates of those projections on an annual basis. Through the FHFA Conservator’s Report, FHFA reports actual performance versus projections on a quarterly basis.


The Federal Housing Finance Agency regulates Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the
12 Federal Home Loan Banks. These government-sponsored enterprises provide
more than $5.7 trillion in funding for the U.S. mortgage markets and financial institutions.
