WASHINGTON, D.C. – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) priced its fourth Multifamily DUS REMIC in 2012 totaling $753 million under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMSTM) program on May 15, 2012.

“Headlines in Europe and some earnings surprises created a flight to quality bid that drove rates outside the most recent range while M5 was in the market. A handful of regular participants were on the sidelines due to low absolute yield levels. Even issuing into this headwind, we saw strong subscription in the shorter tranches, broader distribution across the board and some new players to the GeMS program,” said Kimberly Johnson, Vice President of Multifamily Capital Markets.

All classes of FNA 2012-M5 are guaranteed by Fannie Mae with respect to the full and timely payment of interest and principal. The structure details for the multi-tranche offering are included in the following table.
