Freddie Mac (formally known as the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation) has notified the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) that it is withdrawing its common stock and 20 classes of NYSE-listed preferred stock from listing on the NYSE. Freddie Mac is taking these actions pursuant to a directive from the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), Freddie Mac’s Conservator and regulator, requiring Freddie Mac to delist its common stock and its exchange-listed issues of preferred stock. Upon its appointment as Conservator, FHFA immediately succeeded to all rights, titles, powers and privileges of Freddie Mac, and of any stockholder, officer or director of Freddie Mac with respect to Freddie Mac and its assets.
 
On June 16, 2010 Freddie Mac issued a press release announcing the withdrawal of its common stock and 20 classes of preferred stock from listing on the NYSE. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference.
 
Pursuant to FHFA’s directive and in accordance with Rule 12d2-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Freddie Mac will file a Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission to withdraw the listing of its common stock and its NYSE-listed classes of preferred stock from the NYSE.
