Fannie Mae Notifies NYSE And Chicago Stock Exchange Of Intention To Delist

WASHINGTON, June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Fannie Mae (NYSE: FNM) today reported in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that the company had notified the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the Chicago Stock Exchange (CSE) of its intent to delist its common and preferred stock.  This notice was made in response to notification by the NYSE on June 15, 2010 that the company no longer met NYSE continued listing standards relating to the minimum price of Fannie Mae's common stock and to the issuance of a directive dated June 16, 2010 by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), Fannie Mae's conservator, for Fannie Mae to delist its common and preferred stock from the NYSE and any other U.S. stock exchange where its common and preferred stock are listed.

According to a press release by FHFA, the Acting Director of FHFA directed both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to take such actions.

In accordance with SEC rules and regulations, Fannie Mae intends to file a Form 25 (Notification of Removal from Listing under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) on or about June 28, 2010.  Fannie Mae anticipates that the delisting of its common and preferred stock from the NYSE and CSE will be effective 10 days after Fannie Mae files the Form 25 with the SEC.

After the delisting of its stock, Fannie Mae expects that its common stock and all series of preferred stock that were previously listed on the NYSE will be traded in the over-the-counter market and quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board (OTCBB), a centralized electronic quotation service for over-the-counter securities, under a ticker symbol that has yet to be assigned.  Fannie Mae expects that its common stock and preferred stock will continue to trade on the OTCBB so long as market makers demonstrate an interest in trading in the common and preferred stock.
