WaMu 1031 Exchange. Prior to the Petition Date, WaMu 1031 Exchange (“WaMu 1031”) facilitated Section 1031 exchanges for residential and commercial property owners. Specifically, WaMu 1031 provided qualified intermediary services to assist real estate investors in deferring capital gains taxes with respect to real estate transactions involving investment properties. WaMu 1031 Exchange was formed as a combination of three predecessor 1031 exchange companies and processed 15,000 exchanges annually, with each exchange averaging $300,000 to $400,000 in size. WaMu 1031 ceased facilitating exchanges, however, in July 2009. The company has been undergoing a wind-down


65

process and currently has no employees, offices or assets other than cash. Since the Petition Date, WaMu 1031 has paid $4 million to WMI, either as distributions or in satisfaction of obligations to WMI. WaMu 1031’s balance sheet as of October 31, 2011 is shown below in Section IV.IV.8.

WM Citation Holdings, LLC. WM Citation Holdings, LLC (“WM Citation”) is a Delaware limited liability company formed in July 2001. As of the Petition Date, WM Citation held partial interests in three corporate aircraft managed by NetJets, which interests were sold immediately after the commencement of the Chapter 11 Cases. The aggregate sale proceeds were approximately $3 million after NetJets broker fees, and the eventual buyers were NetJets and JPMC. Over the course of the reorganizations, WM Citation also has been utilized to consolidate other Non-Banking Subsidiaries and, as a result, has accumulated various assets and cash through those reorganizations. Since the Petition Date, WM Citation along with the Non-Banking Subsidiaries that have merged into it have paid $287 million to WMI, either as distributions or in satisfaction of obligations to WMI.

Through the consolidation process of merging PCA Asset Holdings and HS Loan Partners into WM Citation, WM Citation owns two note receivables payable by WMB which continue to accrue monthly interest. Pursuant to the Global Settlement Agreement, JPMC will pay all obligations of WMB, WMB’s subsidiaries, or JPMC under the Revolving Notes set forth on Exhibit “V” thereto. (See Global Settlement Agreement § 2.16 and Section V.B.3.b(v) below.) Specifically, Exhibit “V” to the Global Settlement Agreement includes the following Revolving Notes which relate to WM Citation: (i) $73,670,153 under that certain Revolving Master Note, dated as of December 22, 2005, by and between WMB, as borrower, and WM Citation (as successor to HS Loan Partners), as lender, and (ii) $13,576,245 under that certain Registered Security, Note A, dated as of December 17, 2004, by and between University Street, Inc., as payor and predecessor in interest to WMB, and WM Citation (as successor to WMRP Delaware Holdings LLC), as payee, and predecessor in interest to PCA Asset Holdings LLC.

WM Citation owned six (6) multi-family home mortgages through the mergers of Flower Street, Sutter Bay Corporation and HS Loan Partners into WM Citation. Collectively, through a competitive auction process, 14 multi-family loan mortgages, consisting of eight (8) owned by H.S. Loan Corporation and the 6 owned by WM Citation, were sold in June 2009 and generated approximately $3.5 million in proceeds after fees and expenses.

Through the consolidation process, WM Citation became the eventual owner of WM Aircraft’s 72% interest in SoundBay Leasing LLC (“SoundBay Leasing”). SoundBay Leasing owned a 1986 Boeing 767-223ER, which was leased by American Airlines. The lease term expires at the beginning of 2012. Through an airline broker, SoundBay Leasing auctioned the plane, received six (6) bids, and generated gross proceeds of $5.1M in January 2010, of which WM Citation retained 72%.

WM Citation’s balance sheet, as of October 31, 2011, is shown below in Section IV.A.8.

Both Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae filed Claims against WMI, which guaranteed recourse obligations of Ahmanson Obligation. Ahmanson Obligation settled a $53 million recourse Claim with Freddie Mac for $250,000 in March 2010 and a $17 million recourse Claim with Fannie Mae for $50,000 in September 2010.

As of the Petition Date, Ahmanson Obligation held approximately $18 million in unpaid principal balance (“UPB”) on outstanding mortgage loans. In July 2010, through a third party advisor, Ahmanson Obligation engaged outside buyers in a competitive bidding process and received nineteen

Over the course of the reorganizations after the Petition Date, the company acquired Ahmanson Developments, Inc. which had potential liabilities related to the BKK Litigation and certain warranty obligations. The BKK Litigation and the Claims associated with it are further described in Section V.B.6.j of this Disclosure Statement. Pursuant to a pending settlement with JPMC and the plaintiffs, WMI will pay JPMC $1.49 million on behalf of WMI Rainier in exchange for a release by JPMC of all Claims against WMI and the Non-Banking Subsidiaries related to the BKK Litigation. In addition, JPMC will indemnify the WMI Entities for any loss related to the BKK Litigation not covered by insurance; provided, that such indemnification is limited to an amount of up to $1.49 million with respect to liabilities of WMI Rainier or its predecessor ADI (defined below) or Oxford Investment Corp. (See Certification of Counsel Regarding Order Approving Settlement Agreement Between Debtors, JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A., California Department of Toxic Substances Control, the BKK Joint Defense Group and Certain of That Group's Individual Members, Exhibit A [D.I. 6261].)

The Debtors recently learned that, through ADI’s (defined below) historical real estate development activities, WMI Rainier may own two parcels of land in Riverside County, California. Both parcels are approximately two acres each and consist of narrow strips of land abutting alongside a highway. Additionally, such parcels are designated as utility corridors and zoned as “open space limiting development” and encumbered by the City of Corona and Riverside County. These utility corridors were most likely intended to be conveyed to the city during development and have zero value or assessed property tax.

67

$82,048,081 under that certain Revolving Master Note, dated as of December 22, 2005, by and between WMB, as borrower, and H.S. Loan, as lender.

Marion Insurance Company, Inc. (Merged into WM Citation). Marion Insurance Company (“Marion”), a Vermont corporation and non-debtor, wholly-owned subsidiary of WMI, was a captive reinsurance company, incorporated in September 2000 to act as a Vermont domiciled captive insurance company to reinsure the risk associated with lender placed hazard insurance policies, accidental death and dismemberment and mortgage life insurance. Prior to the Petition Date, Marion reinsured mortgage life, disability, and accidental death insurance written on mortgagees of WMB’s banks as well as lender placed hazard-related coverage on loans in the banks’ servicing portfolios.

In February 2009, the insurance commissioner of Vermont notified Marion that it was no longer in compliance with Vermont captive law because it no longer reinsured the risks of its affiliates, and therefore required that Marion no longer provide reinsurance as a Vermont captive. In response to this directive, in early 2009, Marion began the process of commuting its existing reinsurance contracts with four separate companies. By the beginning of June 2010, Marion had successfully commuted all reinsurance agreements with the four companies, including its reinsurance agreement with Assurant. As part of its commutation effort with Assurant, Marion created and deposited $17 million into a trust for the benefit of Assurant to pay remaining Claims over the next two years. Per the insurance commissioner’s requirements, Marion subsequently distributed the trust to WMI to ensure the successful wind-down of the Marion entity. In March 2011, the Assurant Trust distributed $7.7 million to WMI. The term of the trust expires on December 31, 2011, after which the remaining assets, currently approximately $6.4 million, will revert, unrestricted, to WMI. In total, since the Petition Date, Marion has paid $74 million to WMI, either as distributions or in satisfaction of obligations to WMI.

As of June 30, 2010, Marion surrendered its Vermont insurance license and merged out of existence as part of the ongoing WMI subsidiary wind-down process.
