Fannie Mae: $25.2 Billion Loss

by Calculated Risk on 2/26/2009 06:11:00 PM

From Fannie Mae:

Fannie Mae reported a loss of $25.2 billion ... in the fourth quarter of 2008, compared with a third-quarter 2008 loss of $29.0 billion ...

On February 25, 2009, the Director of FHFA submitted a request for $15.2 billion from the U.S. Department of the Treasury on our behalf under the terms of the Senior Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement in order to eliminate our net worth deficit as of December 31, 2008. FHFA has requested that Treasury provide the funds on or prior to March 31, 2009.
We expect the market conditions that contributed to our net loss for each quarter of 2008 to continue and possibly worsen in 2009, which is likely to cause further reductions in our net worth.
The confessional is very busy ...
