American Homes 4 Rent Announces Joint Venture To Acquire Mortgage Assets

Stocks in this article: AMH

AGOURA HILLS, Calif., Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  American Homes 4 Rent (NYSE: AMH) (the "Company") today announced the formation of American Mortgage Investment Partners, LLC ("AMIP"), a joint venture established by the Company and Johnson Capital Residential Investments, LLC ("JCRI"), an investment entity formed and capitalized by a group of mortgage servicing and real estate finance professionals. AMIP was formed to manage multiple investment funds focused on the acquisition and resolution of distressed residential mortgage assets in the United States. AMIP currently holds no residential mortgages and is expected to focus initially on evaluating possible acquisitions.

AMIP will be managed by a partnership of personnel provided by JCRI and the Company, together with select third party service providers and vendors. The joint venture expects to leverage AMH's single family property management infrastructure and nationwide presence.      

"We are pleased to announce the formation of AMIP. We anticipate that this joint venture, focused on the future acquisition and resolution of residential mortgages, will help facilitate our continued growth," said Jack Corrigan, AMH's Chief Operating Officer.  "We also expect that our participation in AMIP will help assure that single family homes we acquire through these alternative acquisition channels will meet our underwriting standards with respect to the quality of the product and expected financial returns."

Guy Johnson, JCRI Chairman and founder of Johnson Capital, one of the nation's leading real estate financing and advisory firms, remarked, "We are excited to partner with AMH, a leader among single family REITs in the United States. We believe the opportunity to provide alternatives to foreclosure such as REO-to-Rental solutions will provide attractive and affordable alternatives to home ownership for many."
