Published reports in Reuters are stating that Thornburg Mortgage, Inc., a Santa Fe, New Mexico based lender, is facing millions of dollars in margin calls that it may not be able to pay or post collateral for.  Therefore, the company may be forced out of business.


As a result of these disclosures, Old Republic operations or agents should not close loans involving Thornburg Mortgage, Inc., unless they currently have good funds in their escrow account for the loan.  For purposes of this ALERT!, the term "good funds" should be construed to mean that the funds for the loan have actually been received by the bank and have been credited to the appropriate escrow account.


This ALERT! is being issued for the sole purpose of meeting the Company's predetermined underwriting criteria and should in no way be construed as slanderous or defamatory material against any of the parties named herein.

Should you have any questions or require further information, please contact
David Rhodes or Steve Streiff in our Legal Department.
