“During 2013, we made very substantial progress towards moving beyond the effects of the financial crisis,” said MBIA Inc. President and Chief Financial Officer Chuck Chaplin. “The primary litigation over the reorganization of our insurance businesses was finally and favorably resolved. The financial positions of MBIA Corp. and MBIA UK were significantly stabilized by the collection of over 90 percent of the “putback” recoverable on the year-end 2012 balance sheet and the commutation of $20 billion of potentially volatile liabilities. The intercompany loan between National and MBIA Corp. was repaid, clearing a major hurdle to the re-establishment of National’s position in the municipal bond insurance business. We now await actions by the rating agencies in recognition of these significant accomplishments. We expect that National will be the primary driver of shareholder value going forward.”
