Stonegate Mortgage to acquire NattyMac from Guggenheim Partners

September 2012 - NattyMac has been acquired by Stonegate Mortgage. The acquisition will enable Stonegate to offer an integrated solution which will provide liquidity to its clients for agency-eligible loans, with reduced compliance, collateral and operating risk. Stonegate also intends to expand its platform by offering servicing flow transactions for agency-eligible loans.

NattyMac provides mortgage warehouse financing to independent mortgage bankers for prime mortgage collateral such as agency-eligible and government-insured loans. NattyMac was a portfolio company of Guggenheim, a privately held, global diversified financial services firm with more than $160 billion in assets under management.

Stonegate Mortgage, one of the largest and fastest growing mortgage lenders and servicers in the U.S., acquires loans through a network of retail branches and third party originators and retains the related mortgage servicing.

Freeman & Co. advised Guggenheim, which had retained Freeman & Co. earlier this year to explore strategic alternatives for NattyMac.
