Lehman to Reap $1.5 Billion From Mortgage Bank Units, FT Says
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. has exited the assets of its unit Aurora Bank FSB in a transaction that could help reap about $1.5 billion for creditors, the Financial Times reported.
Aurora’s $64 billion residential mortgage servicing rights have been sold to Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc., which is owned by Fortress Investment Group LLC (FIG), the report said, citing Lehman. The collapse of Lehman in 2008 left behind two mortgage subsidiaries including Aurora Bank and Woodlands Commercial Bank, the report said.
The combined sale of both bank assets will earn about $1.5 billion for creditors, the FT said, citing Douglas Lambert, managing director of Alvarez & Marsal.
