Item 8.01 Other Events.

On November 15, 2013, JPMorgan Chase & Co. (“JPMorgan Chase” or the “Firm”) announced that it had reached a $4.5 billion agreement with 21 major institutional investors, represented by Gibbs & Bruns LLP, to make a binding offer to the trustees of 330 residential mortgage-backed securities (“RMBS”) trusts issued by J.P. Morgan, Chase and Bear Stearns. The offer, which the trustees may seek court approval for, would resolve all representation and warranty claims as well as servicing claims on all trusts issued by J.P. Morgan, Chase and Bear Stearns between 2005 and 2008. This agreement does not resolve claims on trusts issued by Washington Mutual.

This settlement is another important step in J.P. Morgan’s efforts to resolve legacy related RMBS matters. The Firm believes it is appropriately reserved for this and any remaining RMBS litigation matters.

A copy of the Firm’s press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
