(a) In addition to the “pass-through" securities dealt with in subpart A of this part, the Association is authorized by section 306(g) of the National Housing Act, upon such terms and conditions as it may deem appropriate, to guarantee the timely payment of principal of and interest on securities of the “bond-type" which are based on and backed by a trust or pool composed of mortgages which are insured by the Federal Housing Administration the Farmers' Home Administration, or insured or guaranteed by the Veterans' Administration. The Association's guaranty of mortgagebacked securities is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States.

(b) Sections 1665.21 through 1665.35 deal with such “bond-type" securities and do not purport to set forth all the procedures and requirements that apply to the issuance and guaranty of such securities. All such transactions are governed by the specific terms and provisions of the contracts entered into by the parties. Further information may be obtained from the Government National Mortgage Association, 451 Seventh Street SW., Washington, D.C. 20414. $ 1665.23 Eligible issuers.

Any corporation, trust, partnership, or other entity with a net worth in assets acceptable to the Association of $50 million or more, and which has the capability to assemble acceptable and eligible mortgages in sufficient quantity to support required minimum issuances

of securities, may be approved for a guaranty by the Association. Further, the Association reserves the right to limit the number of issuers in the interest of conducting an orderly market of securities of this type. § 1665.25 Securities.

(a) Instruments. Securities to be issued pursuant to the provisions of this subpart may be in registered or bearer form. Each security shall have terms acceptable to the Association and shall specify its principal amount, the interest rate, and the maturity date, and the securities may include call provisions and other characteristics depending on current market conditions.

(b) Issue amount. Until further authorization is given, each issue of guaranteed securities must be in a minimum face amount of $100 million, and no single maturity of an issue may be in face amount less than $100 million unless the total issue exceeds $200 million. The total of the outstanding principal balances of the mortgages upon which any issue is originally based and backed must be at least equal to 100 percent of the face amount of the issue of guaranteed securities. Such ratio as may be required by the governing trust arrangements, between mortgages and other pooled assets and securities outstanding at any one time, shall be maintained, subject to adjustment with the approval of the Association in accord with such trust arrangements.

(c) Face amount of securities. The face amount of any security cannot be less than $25,000. (d) Transferability. Securities

are transferable but, if registered, are transferable, as to the Association and the issuer, only on the books of a fiscal agent as shall be agreed upon by the Association and the issuer.

(e) Treasury approval. Issues of $100 million or larger will be subject to approval of the Secretary of the Treasury. § 1665.27 Mortgages.
