Freddie Mac Subject To SEC Reporting Requirements

Washington, D.C., July 18, 2008 — The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) has voluntarily registered its common stock under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and is now subject to the Act's periodic and current reporting requirements.

By voluntarily becoming a reporting company, Freddie Mac has publicly disclosed, and will continue to disclose, key information about the company's finances and operations.

The Commission staff provided Freddie Mac the same regulatory relief given in 2004 to the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), which voluntarily registered its common stock in the year before.

Under the relief, both companies agree to disclose direct financial obligations and off-balance sheet arrangements on the same basis as if they were public companies conducting registered offerings.
