The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), as conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, has announced a settlement for $110 million with First Horizon National Corporation, related companies and specifically named individuals. The settlement resolves claims in the lawsuit FHFA v. First Horizon National Corporation, et al. (S.D.N.Y.), alleging violations of federal and District of Columbia securities laws in connection with private-label mortgage-backed securities (MBS) purchased by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac during 2005-2007. Pursuant to the agreement, First Horizon will pay $61.6 million to Fannie Mae and $48.4 million to Freddie Mac. This is the 14th settlement related to the 18 PLS lawsuits FHFA filed in 2011. FHFA remains committed to satisfactory resolution of the remaining actions. First Horizon CEO Bryan Jordan called the settlement with FHFA "another big step forward" in First Horizon's ongoing efforts to unwind from its former mortgage businesses.
