AG Mortgage REIT Sells $465M Pool of Loans

A unit of AG Mortgage Investment Trust (MITT) has sold a pool of loans with an unpaid principal balance of $465 million. The purchaser was UMB Bank, acting as legal title trustee for LVS Title Trust XIII.

The mortgage REIT, headquartered in Midtown Manhattan, used net proceeds of approximately $383 million to repay debt and assorted payables secured by the loans. As MITT announced in early May, the loans were sold on a whole loan, servicing-released basis.

In late March, amid turmoil in the financial markets brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, MITT said it was exploring a sale of assets to help it meet “an unusually high number of margin calls from financing counterparties.”

The company later entered into a forbearance agreement with lenders, which has now been extended to June 15.
