Impac Mortgage Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex: IMH), a Maryland corporation, or the “Company,” is announcing that on November 26, 2010, the Company borrowed $8.0 million to pay off the balance owed to its last remaining warehouse bank from 2007.

Current market conditions provided the Company the opportunity to pay off the Credit Agreement entered into on October 30, 2009 at a discount to the approximately $6.6 million outstanding balance. By paying off the agreement five months earlier than previously reported the Company will save approximately $800,000 in monthly cash flows for these five months. This also results in the termination of all covenants, conditions and restrictions associated with the Credit Agreement.

Mr. Joseph R. Tomkinson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Impac Mortgage Holdings, Inc., commented, “We are pleased to have settled another financing legacy that will allow us to move forward with our strategic initiatives without the restrictions of previous financing obligations.”
