NY Fed Repays Loans to Maiden Lane LLC and Maiden Lane III LLC

Published

on

According to the press release, “The Federal Reserve Bank of New York today announced that its loans to Maiden Lane LLC (ML LLC) and Maiden Lane III LLC (ML III LLC) have been fully repaid with interest. The original amounts of these loans were $28.82 billion and $24.3 billion respectively. Maiden Lane II LLC repaid all of its obligations earlier this year.

William C. Dudley, president of the New York Fed, said, “This is a major milestone for the Bank and for the public. The successful repayment of the New York Fed’s loans to ML LLC and ML III LLC marks the retirement of the last remaining debts owed to the Bank that stemmed from the crisis-era interventions with Bear Stearns and AIG. The Maiden Lane entities were established to protect the U.S. economy at a time of great economic stress, and I am pleased we were able to accomplish that policy objective and be fully repaid.”

The New York Fed, through BlackRock Solutions, will continue to sell the remaining assets from the ML LLC and ML III LLC portfolios as market conditions warrant and if the sales represent good value for the public. There is no fixed timeframe for these sales. In accordance with the LLCs’ agreements, proceeds from future sales in ML LLC will be used to retire the subordinated loan extended by JPMorgan Chase & Co., after which the New York Fed will receive all residual profits, and proceeds from future sales in ML III LLC will be used to repay the equity contribution extended by AIG, after which the New York Fed will receive two-thirds of residual profits.”
