ClearPoint Recent DevelopmentsThe Company acquired ClearPoint on January 3, 2011 with the intent to add an element of competitive differentiation for the Company’s MBS Business. That differentiation was to have been achieved by offering customers of the Company’s MBS Business, institutional investors, the ability to purchase mortgage backed securities backed by loans that conformed to customized specified pool characteristics. ClearPoint intended to originate loans according to customers’ desired specifications, deliver those loans to a Government Sponsored Enterprise (GSE, or FNMA, FHLMC, or GNMA) in exchange for a security backed by those loans, and sell that security to the Company’s MBS unit – for onward sale to the MBS unit’s customers. The strategy required ClearPoint to have GSE seller servicer approvals, the application for which required the development of adequate infrastructure, and sustained profitability in the ClearPoint subsidiary as a standalone business unit.
