Maturity Profile of Outstanding Debt of Fannie Mae
Our outstanding short-term debt, as a percentage of our total outstanding debt, was 22% as of March 31, 2015 compared with 23% as of December 31, 2014. The weighted-average interest rate on our long-term debt increased to 2.29% as of March 31, 2015 from 2.24% as of December 31, 2014.
Our outstanding debt maturing within one year, including the current portion of our long-term debt and amounts we have announced for early redemption, as a percentage of our total outstanding debt, excluding debt of consolidated trusts, was 36% as of March 31, 2015 and 37% as of December 31, 2014. The weighted-average maturity of our outstanding debt that is maturing within one year was 133 days as of March 31, 2015, compared with 131 days as of December 31, 2014. The weighted-average maturity of our outstanding debt maturing in more than one year was approximately 60 months as of March 31, 2015, compared with approximately 61 months as of December 31, 2014. We intend to repay our short-term and long-term debt obligations as they become due primarily through proceeds from the issuance of additional debt securities. We also may use proceeds from our mortgage assets to pay our debt obligations.

As of March 31, 2015, our credit ratings have not changed since we filed our 2014 Form 10-K. For additional information on our credit ratings, see “Management’s Discussion and Analysis—Liquidity and Capital Management—Fannie Mae Credit Ratings” in our 2014 Form 10-K.
Three Months Ended March 31, 2015. Cash and cash equivalents increased by $1.8 billion from $22.0 billion as of December 31, 2014 to $23.9 billion as of March 31, 2015. The increase in the balance was primarily driven by cash inflows from (1) issuances of long-term debt of consolidated trusts resulting from the sale of Fannie Mae MBS to third parties, (2) proceeds from repayment of loans of Fannie Mae, (3) the sale of our REO inventory and (4) proceeds from sale and liquidations of mortgage-related securities.
Partially offsetting these cash inflows were cash outflows from (1) acquiring mortgage loans and providing advances to lenders, and (2) the acquisition of delinquent loans out of MBS trusts.
Three Months Ended March 31, 2014. Cash and cash equivalents decreased by $5.2 billion from $19.2 billion as of December 31, 2013 to $14.1 billion as of March 31, 2014. The decrease in the balance was primarily driven by cash outflow from (1) acquiring mortgage loans and providing advances to lenders; (2) payments to redeem funding debt, which outpaced issuances, due to lower funding needs, (3) acquisition of delinquent loans out of MBS trusts, and (4) the payment of dividends to Treasury under our senior preferred stock purchase agreement.
