Interesting Things in CIT Group’s New 10-K

CIT Group 10k

CRC recently reviewed CIT Group’s 10-K  (page 192) and annual report and found some some interesting items. We’re including two of them below

Page 192: HUD OIG INVESTIGATION
In 2009, OneWest Bank acquired the reverse mortgage loan portfolio and related servicing rights of Financial Freedom Senior Funding Corporation, including HECM loans, from the FDIC as Receiver for IndyMac Federal Bank. HECM loans are insured by the Federal Housing Administration (“FHA”), administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”). Subject to certain requirements, the loans acquired from the FDIC are covered by indemnification agreements. In addition, Financial Freedom is the servicer of HECM loans owned by the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA) and other third party investors. In the third and fourth quarters of 2015, HUD’s Office of Inspector General (“OIG”), served subpoenas on the Company regarding HECM loans.The subpoenas request documents and other information related to the servicing of HECM loans and the curtailment of interest payments on HECM loans. (emphasis added) The Company is responding to the subpoenas and does not have sufficient information to make an assessment of the outcome or the impact of the HUD OIG investigation.

More about the Relativity Media Bankruptcy, and Steve Mnuchin’s role (conflicted?) in it is included in page 193, note 24:

On October 2, 2014, Mr. Mnuchin purchased certain classes of equity interests in and was appointed as co-chairman of the Board of Relativity Holdings LLC (“Relativity“). As a result, several revolving credit facilities and term loan facilities that previously existed among OneWest Bank and certain other banks, as lenders, and certain subsidiaries and affiliates of Relativity (the ”Borrowers“), including one revolving credit facility that was increased in size after October 2, 2014, and certain deposits of the Borrowers with OneWest Bank, were considered to be related party transactions. Prior to October 2, 2014, James Wiatt, a director of both IMB and OneWest Bank, was also a director of Relativity. After Mr. Mnuchin joined the Board of Relativity on October 2, 2014, all subsequent actions between OneWest Bank and the Borrowers were approved by the full Board of OneWest Bank, excluding Mr. Mnuchin and Mr. Wiatt. As of December 31, 2015, the contractual loan commitments by CIT Bank, N.A. (formerly OneWest Bank) to the Borrowers was $39.9 million, of which $38.5 million was outstanding, and the deposit totaled $40.7 million. Effective as of May 29, 2015, Mr. Mnuchin ceased to be co-chairman of the Board of Relativity. Relativity filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code on July 30, 2015 seeking protection for itself and certain of its subsidiaries.

CIT Group has scheduled a “strategic call” for investors on March 23rd at 5am.  Stay tuned for more information.
