Morgan Stanley Reaches $2.6 Billion Settlement with US Government over Mortgages

Morgan Stanley agreed to pay $2.6 billion to US federal government to settle the charges over its role in the sub-prime mortgage lending that triggered the global financial crisis in 2008. The settlement amount will go to 'resolve certain claims the US Department of Justice (DOJ) brought against Morgan Stanley's mortgage division,' the bank said in a regulatory filing with the US securities exchange commission (SEC). The bank said that the settlement is not final and could fall through. The amount will be paid to the DOJ and the attorney's office for the northern district of California. The settlement will cut the bank's 2014 profit by almost a half. Legal reserves will be increased to $2.8 billion, which will reduce the income from continuing operations by $2.7 billion or $1.35 per share from earlier $5.8 billion or $2.96 per share.
