Additionally, during the fourth quarter, the Company recorded $236.1 million in operating losses, which were primarily related to losses stemming from borrower misrepresentations and insurance claim denials, and $100.0 million related to mortgage reinsurance reserves.

The worsening economic conditions and resulting affect on asset values also continued to adversely impact the Company’s assets carried at fair market value. During the fourth quarter, market valuation

losses on loans and securities carried at fair value were approximately $145 million, of which $44.3 million related to the Company’s public debt and related hedges carried at fair value.
