JPMorgan Chase & Co Reaches Settlement With SEC Regarding Bear Stearns And JPM Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities

Monday, 19 Nov 2012 02:00am EST 

JPMorgan Chase & Co announced an agreement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to settle SEC inquiries regarding disclosures in certain residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) offerings issued by Bear Stearns and one issued by J.P. Morgan. The agreement is subject to court approval. As part of the agreement, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and the other settling entities consented to the filing of a complaint, without admitting or denying its allegations, and will pay disgorgement and penalties totaling approximately $297 million. More than two-thirds of these payments relate to securities issued by Bear Stearns and are slated for return to the trusts Bear sponsored or the investors in those trusts. The SEC’s complaint makes allegations under the negligence-based provisions of the federal securities laws and does not include charges of intentional misconduct. J.P. Morgan has reached agreement with the SEC to put these matters concerning RMBS behind it. The SEC’s claims relate primarily to Bear Stearns’ alleged failure to disclose settlements entered into by a Bear Stearns affiliate with originators of loans that had been securitized into RMBS trusts. The settlement provides a mechanism for J.P. Morgan Securities to disgorge the proceeds from the settlements to the SEC for eventual payment into the relevant RMBS trusts, without impacting the Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit status of the trusts.
