|FEDERAL NATIONAL MORTGAGE ASSOCIATION FANNIE MAE filed this Form 10-Q on 08/03/2017|
Each quarter during the conservatorship, the Director of FHFA has directed us to make dividend payments to Treasury. Our second quarter 2017 dividend of $2.8 billion was declared by FHFA and subsequently paid by us on June 30, 2017.
The terms of our senior preferred stock provide for quarterly dividends to accumulate at a rate equal to our net worth less an applicable capital reserve amount. The capital reserve amount is $600 million for dividend periods in 2017, and will be reduced to zero on January 1, 2018. We will pay Treasury a dividend for the third quarter of 2017 of $3.1 billion by September 30, 2017 if our conservator declares a dividend in this amount before September 30, 2017. To the extent that these quarterly dividends are not paid, they will accumulate and be added to the liquidation preference of the senior preferred stock. This would not affect the amount of available funding from Treasury under the senior preferred stock purchase agreement.
We are effectively unable to raise equity capital from private sources at this time and, therefore, are reliant on the funding available under our senior preferred stock purchase agreement with Treasury to address any net worth deficit. Under the senior preferred stock purchase agreement, Treasury made a commitment to provide funding, under certain conditions, to eliminate deficiencies in our net worth. We have received a total of $116.1 billion from Treasury pursuant to the senior preferred stock purchase agreement as of June 30, 2017. The current aggregate liquidation preference of the senior preferred stock, including the initial aggregate liquidation preference of $1.0 billion, remains at $117.1 billion. Dividend payments we make to Treasury do not reduce the outstanding liquidation preference of the senior preferred stock, although we are permitted to pay down the liquidation preference of the senior preferred stock to the extent of any accumulated and unpaid dividends previously added to the liquidation preference and not previously paid down.
While we had a positive net worth as of June 30, 2017 and have not received funds from Treasury under the agreement since the first quarter of 2012, we will be required to obtain additional funding from Treasury pursuant to the senior preferred stock purchase agreement if we have a net worth deficit in future periods. As of the date of this filing, the amount of remaining available funding under the senior preferred stock purchase agreement is $117.6 billion. If we were to draw additional funds from Treasury under the agreement in a future period, the amount of remaining funding under the agreement would be reduced by the amount of our draw. Dividend payments we make to Treasury do not restore or increase the amount of funding available to us under the agreement.
See “Business—Conservatorship and Treasury Agreements—Treasury Agreements” in our 2016 Form 10-K for more information on the terms of our senior preferred stock and our senior preferred stock purchase agreement with Treasury. See “Risk Factors” in our 2016 Form 10-K for a discussion of the risks relating to our limited and declining capital reserves and the dividend provisions of the senior preferred stock.
We enter into certain business arrangements to facilitate our statutory purpose of providing liquidity to the secondary mortgage market and to reduce our exposure to interest rate fluctuations. Some of these arrangements are not recorded in our condensed consolidated balance sheets or may be recorded in amounts different from the full contract or notional amount of the transaction. Our off-balance sheet arrangements result primarily from: our guaranty of mortgage loan securitization and resecuritization transactions, and other guaranty commitments over which we do not have control; liquidity support transactions; and partnership interests. For a description of our off-balance sheet arrangements, see “MD&A—Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements” in our 2016 Form 10-K.
Our maximum potential exposure to credit losses relating to our outstanding and unconsolidated Fannie Mae MBS and other financial guarantees is primarily represented by the unpaid principal balance of the mortgage loans underlying outstanding and unconsolidated Fannie Mae MBS and other financial guarantees of $22.7 billion as of June 30, 2017 and $24.3 billion as of December 31, 2016. Our total outstanding liquidity commitments to advance funds for securities backed by multifamily housing revenue bonds totaled $9.9 billion as of June 30, 2017 and $10.4 billion as of December 31, 2016.
