HomeStreet Announces Sale Of Residential Mortgage Loans

HomeStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ:HMST) (the “Company” or “HomeStreet”), the parent company of HomeStreet Bank, today announced its intent to sell two pools of residential loans, retaining the right to service such loans. The first pool is comprised of fixed-rate residential mortgage loans with outstanding principal balances of approximately $105 million. The second pool is comprised of adjustable rate residential mortgage loans with outstanding principal balances of approximately $222 million. The mortgage loans subject to these sales are located in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Hawaii. The $105 million pool sale is expected to close in March 2014 and the $222 million pool sale is expected to close in April 2014. These sales are subject to numerous contingencies, including the successful negotiation and execution of final agreements between the parties.

“These loan sales are part of the Company’s ongoing loan portfolio and balance sheet management activities,” said HomeStreet CEO Mark K. Mason. “These activities are undertaken to manage, among other things, the Company’s credit risk, interest rate risk, liquidity and regulatory capital ratios. As a part of those activities, from time to time, the Company may buy or sell assets such as securities, loans, mortgage servicing rights or other assets or liabilities such as deposits.”
