Table of Contents

  •  Our expectation that serious delinquency rates will continue to be affected in the future by changes in economic factors such as home prices, unemployment rates and household wealth, and by the extent to which borrowers with modified loans again become delinquent in their payments;
 
  •  Our expectation that the volume of our foreclosure alternatives will remain high throughout the remainder of 2011;
 
  •  Our belief that the performance of our workouts will be highly dependent on economic factors, such as unemployment rates, household wealth and home prices;
 
  •  Our expectation that the amount of our outstanding repurchase requests to seller/servicers could remain high in 2011;
 
  •  The possibility that, in light of agreements by mortgage insurers with lenders to waive certain rights to investigate claims, fewer rescissions of mortgage insurance may result in our devoting more resources to an independent review process to determine whether there are underlying origination defects in loans subject to these agreements;
 
  •  Our belief that one or more of our financial guarantor counterparties may not be able to fully meet their obligations to us in the future;
 
  •  Our expectation that we will continue to need funding from Treasury to avoid triggering FHFA’s obligation to place us into receivership if the Director of FHFA makes a written determination that our assets are less than our obligations for a period of 60 days after the filing deadline for our Form 10-K or Form 10-Q with the SEC;
 
  •  Our belief that continued federal government support of our business and the financial markets, as well as our status as a GSE, are essential to maintaining our access to debt funding; and
 
  •  Our expectation that the pause in foreclosures as a result of servicer foreclosure process deficiencies will likely continue to result in longer foreclosure timelines and higher credit-related expenses.
