Tim Mayopoulos

Today Fannie Mae reported net income of $3.0 billion and comprehensive income of $3.0 billion for the third quarter of 2017. We paid a $3.1 billion dividend to Treasury in September 2017. Through the third quarter of 2017, Fannie Mae has paid $165.8 billion in dividends to Treasury. We will pay Treasury another $3.0 billion in dividends in December 2017 if FHFA declares a dividend in this amount.

Fannie Mae is consistently delivering a steady stream of innovations to our customers. We see their challenges as Fannie Mae's challenges, and we are listening to their feedback to make our customer solutions better and smarter. As our third quarter results demonstrate, our performance and focus on customers have put us in a strong position to continue serving all parts of the market. We are committed to working with customers to forge a stronger and safer housing finance system that provides opportunities that are affordable to the next generation of American homeowners and renters.
