Business Description

Industry: REITs » REIT - Residential
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:4OQ.Germany
American Capital Agency Corp. was organized on January 7, 2008, and commenced operations on May 20, 2008 following the completion of its initial public offering ('IPO'). It is a REIT that invests exclusively in residential mortgage pass-through securities and collateralized mortgage obligations on a leveraged basis. These investments consist of securities for which principal and interest are guaranteed by government-sponsored entities such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, or by a U.S. Government agency such as Ginnie Mae. The Company refers to these types of securities as agency securities and the specific agency securities in which it invests as its investment portfolio. It is externally managed by American Capital Agency Management, LLC ('Manager'). The Company's Manager is a wholly-owned subsidiary of American Capital, LLC, which is a wholly-owned portfolio company of American Capital. The Company's principal objective is to generate net income for distribution to its stockholders through regular quarterly dividends from its net interest income, which is the spread between the interest income earned on its investment portfolio and the interest costs of its borrowings and hedging activities, and realized gains on its investments. The agency securities in which it invests consist of residential pass-through certificates and collateralized mortgage obligations ('CMOs'), for which the principal and interest payments are guaranteed by a U.S. Government agency or U.S. Government-sponsored entity. Residential pass-through certificates are securities representing interests in 'pools' of mortgage loans secured by residential real property where payments of both interest and principal, plus pre-paid principal, on the securities are made monthly to holders of the securities, in effect 'passing through' monthly payments made by the individual borrowers on the mortgage loans that underlie the securities, net of fees paid to the issuer/guarantor and servicers of the securities. CMOs are structured instruments representing interests in residential pass-through certificates. In acquiring agency securities, it competes with other mortgage REITs, mortgage finance and specialty finance companies, savings and loan associations, banks, mortgage banks, insurance companies, mutual funds, institutional investors, investment banking firms, other lenders, governmental bodies and other entities.
