Fannie Would Get About $537M in Deal With Lehman

ehman Brothers Holdings Inc. has reached a settlement with Fannie Mae that would allow the mortgage finance giant to recover about $537 million for its claim against the estate of the failed Wall Street bank over soured mortgage securities.

The settlement announced Thursday must be approved by a federal bankruptcy judge. It valued Fannie’s claim over home loans and mortgage securities it bought from Lehman before the financial crisis at about $2.15 billion. But under Lehman’s bankruptcy proceeding Fannie would get about 25 percent of that.

A Fannie official called it a fair outcome.
