Bear Stearns Sells $5.95 Billion in Mortgage-Backed Securities for Fleet

5/15/2001 10:44:00 AM

NEW YORK, May 15, 2001 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Bear, Stearns & Co. Inc. (NYSE: BSC news) announced today that it has completed a transaction to sell $5.95 billion in mortgage-backed securities for FleetBoston Financial (NYSE: FBF news). The transaction follows the March 1 completion of Fleet's acquisition of Summit Bancorp.

Completion of this complex transaction depended heavily on the innovative work of Bear Stearns' Financial Analytics and Structured Transactions Group (F.A.S.T.). Through its proprietary analytics, its proprietary collateralized mortgage obligation arbitrage and proprietary loan-level prepayment models, Bear Stearns and its financial engineering capabilities optimized asset allocation, maximized Fleet's asset value and created a multitude of structured securities. The resulting deal was the largest Agency re-securitization ever issued.

"The Fleet transaction illustrates Bear Stearns' strong commitment to providing mortgage clients with innovative and creative technologies combined with the power of a seasoned sales and trading force," said Jeffrey Mayer, head of the Bear Stearns Mortgage Department.

"With the Summit deal, it was our intention to reposition the balance sheet through the sale of low-margin assets, including $8 billion of securities," said Doug Jacobs, Treasurer, FleetBoston Financial. "Bear Stearns offered a sophisticated approach to this key portion of the sale, which allowed us to successfully complete the transaction," Jacobs added.

FleetBoston Financial is the seventh-largest financial holding company in the United States. A diversified financial services company with assets exceeding $200 billion, Fleet offers a comprehensive array of innovative financial solutions to 20 million customers in more than 20 countries and territories.

FleetBoston Financial is headquartered in Boston and listed on the New York Stock Exchange (FBF) and the Boston Stock Exchange (FBF) .
