Update on Non-Securitized Mortgage Portfolio

The Company is managing its originations of new business and renewals of existing business to align with current liquidity levels and funding capacity.

The Company is focused on protecting its traditional single-family residential mortgage business and valued customer and broker relationships.

Management expects non-securitized single-family residential mortgage originations will be constrained until at least the end of the year, while renewal percentages are likely to fall within historic ranges.

Management will continue to work on developing longer term liquidity solutions. However, the Company projects that outstanding non-securitized single-family residential mortgage balances will decline over the course of the next few quarters to approximately $10 - $11 billion at year end 2017, compared with $12.6 billion as at March 31, 2017.
