Item 8.01  Other Events.

On August 5, 2019, America First Multifamily Investors, L.P. (the “Partnership”) issued a press release announcing the extension of the maturity of its Series M-031 Tax-Exempt Bond Securitization (“TEBS”) program (“TEBS Financing”) with the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (“Freddie Mac”) to July 15, 2024.

The TEBS Financing represents the securitization of twelve of the Partnership’s mortgage revenue bonds (the “Bonds”). Under the terms of the TEBS Financing, the Partnership transferred the Bonds to ATAX TEBS II, LLC, a special purpose entity controlled by the Partnership (the “Sponsor”).  The Sponsor then securitized the assets by transferring the Bonds to Freddie Mac in exchange for tax-exempt Class A and Class B Freddie Mac Multifamily Certificates for each respective series (collectively the “TEBS Certificates”) issued by Freddie Mac.  The TEBS Certificates represent beneficial interests in the securitized assets held by Freddie Mac.

The TEBS Financing had an initial maturity date of July 15, 2019. Prior to or on this date, the Sponsor had the option to either redeem the Class A TEBS Certificates or continue the TEBS Financings through July 15, 2024. In June 2019, the Sponsor notified Freddie Mac that it elected to extend the maturity of the TEBS Financing through July 15, 2024.  Upon receipt of this election, Freddie Mac had the option to change its liquidity fee rate. Freddie declined to do so and the TEBS Financing continues to incur interest at a variable rate, based on the weekly Securities Industry and Financial Market Association (“SIFMA”) floating index rate. In addition, the Sponsor continues to pay certain credit enhancement, remarketing and servicing fees (collectively, “Facility Fees”) at the same rates as before the maturity extension. As of the extension notification date, the amount of the M-031 Class A TEBS Certificates was approximately $80.2 million and the M-031 Class B TEBS Certificates, with a total value of approximately $23.7 million, were retained by the Sponsor.  

Subsequent to the Sponsor’s notice of its extension to Freddie Mac, the parties entered into a First Amendment to Bond Exchange, Reimbursement, Pledge and Security Agreement dated July 1, 2019. This amendment made technical updates to the original Bond Exchange, Reimbursement, Pledge and Security Agreement dated July 1, 2014. This amendment is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.

In addition, the full text of the Bond Exchange, Reimbursement, Pledge and Security Agreement dated July 1, 2014 between the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation and ATAX TEBS II, LLC, which is attached as Exhibit 10.3 to the Form 8-K filed by the Partnership with the SEC on July 16, 2014, is incorporated by reference herein.
