[2] 80% of these loans have reached a termination event. As a result, the borrower can no longer make draws on these loans. Each loan matures upon the occurrence of a termination event.
[3] Represents the stated interest rate on the loans. Accrued interest on reverse mortgage loans is generally added to the principal balance and paid when the loan is resolved.
[4] The weighted average life is based on the expected timing of the receipt of cash flows.
[5] Includes loans that have either experienced (i) a termination event or (ii) an event of default, substantially all of which are more than 90 days past the time at which they were considered delinquent or real estate owned ("REO"). Collateral value underlying loans considered delinquent is generally sufficient, however $3.6 million face amount of REO loans, representing New Residential's 70% interest therein, was on non-accrual status resulting from the uncertainty of cash collections as of March 31, 2014.
