  • Invested $12 million in Freddie Mac’s inaugural credit risk sharing bond issuance (“STACR”)

_____________________ 2 Government loan acquisitions for the first quarter were $4.3 billion in UPB and were or will be sold to an affiliate, for which PMT earned a sourcing fee of 3 basis points and interest income for its holding period.

3 This pending transaction is subject to continuing due diligence and customary closing conditions. There can be no assurance that the committed amount will ultimately be acquired or that the transaction will be completed.

“The second quarter results demonstrate the strength of PMT’s strategy pursuing multiple investment opportunities across the residential mortgage market,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stanford L. Kurland. “PMT achieved new investments in distressed whole loans, grew its correspondent lending activities, and acquired a bulk portfolio of jumbo loans as we prepare for PMT’s first securitization targeted for the third quarter. The ability to pursue diverse and changing opportunities across the mortgage landscape differentiates PMT from other mortgage REITs and we continue to pursue new opportunities for growth as we head into the second half of 2013.”
