The initial purchasers have a 30-day option from the date of the offering to purchase up to an additional $50 million aggregate principal amount of Notes from PennyMac Corp. The Notes will be offered only to qualified institutional buyers (as defined in the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”)) pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. Settlement of the offering is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to occur on April 30, 2013. The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 5.375% per year, payable semiannually. The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by PMT and exchangeable for PMT’s common shares of beneficial interest (“Common Shares”) at any time until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date.

The Notes will mature on May 1, 2020 unless repurchased or exchanged in accordance with their terms prior to such date. The net proceeds from the offering are intended to be used to fund the business and investment activities of PMT and its subsidiaries, which may include the acquisition of distressed mortgage loans or other investments; the funding of the continued growth of its correspondent lending business, including the purchase of jumbo loans; the repayment of other indebtedness; and for general corporate purposes.
