creditworthiness of the U.S. government. See “Credit Ratings” below for a discussion of potential rating agency actions on our debt securities that likely would result from a downgrade in the U.S. government’s debt ratings. A downgrade in our credit ratings likely would reduce demand for our debt securities and increase our borrowing costs.
Future changes or disruptions in the financial markets could significantly change the amount, mix and cost of funds we obtain, which also could increase our liquidity and roll-over risk and have a material adverse impact on our liquidity, financial condition and results of operations. See “Risk Factors” for a discussion of the risks we face relating to (1) the uncertain future of our company; (2) our reliance on the issuance of debt securities to obtain funds for our operations; and (3) our liquidity contingency plans.
Outstanding Debt
Total outstanding debt of Fannie Mae consists of federal funds purchased and securities sold under agreements to repurchase and short-term and long-term debt, excluding debt of consolidated trusts.
As of June 30, 2011, our outstanding short-term debt, based on its original contractual maturity, as a percentage of our total outstanding debt increased to 22% from 19% as of December 31, 2010. For information on our outstanding debt maturing within one year, including the current portion of our long-term debt, as a percentage of our total debt, see “Maturity Profile of Outstanding Debt of Fannie Mae.” In addition, the weighted-average interest rate on our long-term debt, based on its original contractual maturity, decreased to 2.68% as of June 30, 2011 from 2.77% as of December 31, 2010.
Pursuant to the terms of the senior preferred stock purchase agreement, our outstanding debt limit is 120% of the amount of mortgage assets we are allowed to own on December 31 of the immediately preceding calendar year. Our debt limit under the senior preferred stock purchase agreement was reduced to $972 billion in 2011. As of June 30, 2011, our aggregate indebtedness totaled $735.7 billion, which was $236.3 billion below our debt limit. The calculation of our indebtedness for purposes of complying with our debt limit reflects the unpaid principal balance and excludes debt basis adjustments and debt of consolidated trusts. Because of our debt limit, we may be restricted in the amount of debt we issue to fund our operations.
Table 29 provides information as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010 on our outstanding short-term and long-term debt based on its original contractual terms.
