IMPACT OF FUTURE ADOPTION OF NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
We identify and discuss the expected impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements of recently issued accounting pronouncements in “Note 1, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies.”
 
 
FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
 
This report includes statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”). In addition, our senior management may from time to time make forward-looking statements orally to analysts, investors, the news media and others. Forward-looking statements often include words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “seek,” “estimate,” “forecast,” “project,” “would,” “should,” “could,” “likely,” “may,” or similar words.
 
Among the forward-looking statements in this report are statements relating to:
 
  •  Our expectation that loans in our new single-family book of business will be profitable over their lifetime;
 
  •  Our estimate that, while single-family loans that we acquired from 2005 through 2008 will give rise to additional credit losses that we have not yet realized, we have reserved for the substantial majority of the remaining losses;
 
  •  Our expectation that, if FHA continues to be the lower-cost option for some consumers, and in some cases the only option, for loans with higher LTV ratios, our market share could be adversely impacted if the market shifts away from refinance activity, which is likely to occur when interest rates rise;
 
  •  Our belief that loans we have acquired since 2009 would become unprofitable if home prices declined by more than 15% from their March 2011 levels over the next five years based on our home price index;
 
  •  Our expectations regarding whether loans we acquired in specific years will be profitable or unprofitable, or perform close to break-even;
 
  •  The possibility that changes in home prices, other economic conditions or borrower behavior could change our expectations regarding whether loans we acquired in 2004 will be profitable;
 
  •  Our expectation that defaults on loans we acquired from 2005 through 2008 and the resulting charge-offs will occur over a period of years;
 
  •  Our expectation that it will take years before our REO inventory is reduced to pre-2008 levels;
 
  •  Our expectation that we will realize as credit losses an estimated two-thirds of the fair value losses on loans purchased out of MBS trusts that are reflected in our condensed consolidated balance sheets, and recover the remaining one-third through our condensed consolidated results of operations, depending primarily on changes in home prices and loss severity;
 
  •  Our expectation that employment will likely need to post sustained improvement for an extended period to have a positive impact on housing;
 
  •  Our expectation that weakness in the housing and mortgage markets will continue in 2011;
 
  •  Our expectation that home sales are unlikely to increase until the unemployment rate improves further;
