PNC Bank, affiliate of PNC Financial Services Group Inc., has reached an agreement in principle with the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. (Freddie Mac) to resolve substantially all indemnification and repurchase obligations related to loans sold to Freddie Mac between 2000 and 2008.

Under terms of the agreement, PNC Bank says it will pay Freddie Mac a total of $89 million (less credits of $8 million) to resolve certain existing and future repurchase obligations related to approximately 900,000 loans originated and sold to Freddie Mac primarily between 2000 and 2008 - and to compensate Freddie Mac for certain past losses and potential future losses relating to denials, rescissions and cancellations of mortgage insurance, according to PNC Bank.

The bank says the Freddie Mac agreement follows the previously announced agreement in principle that PNC reached with the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) to resolve repurchase demands with respect to loans sold during this same eight-year period.

According to PNC Bank, the completion of these settlement agreements will resolve substantially all of PNC Bank's outstanding and potential indemnification and repurchase obligations related to loans sold to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae during this period - subject to certain exceptions that PNC does not believe are material.

The agreements remain subject to final documentation and approvals by Freddie Mac's and Fannie Mae's regulator. The amount of the settlements with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae had been fully accrued by PNC Bank as of Sept. 30.
