First Guaranty Mortgage files for bankruptcy


First Guaranty Mortgage Corp. said Thursday that it has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, due to “significant operating losses and cash flow challenges” resulting from adverse market conditions for the mortgage lending industry. The mortgage company said its bankruptcy has not impact on closed mortgages, as they are already serviced by third parties, and said it has retained “a portion of its workforce” to manage the day-to-day business. “The sharp and unexpected decline in performance reflects the intense pressure on mortgage originations due to the dramatic collapse of the mortgage refinance market and the weakening mortgage purchase market, which has suffered from a lack of housing inventory and increasing affordability issues,” the company said. FGMC said it will try to accommodate the maximum number of borrowers who have started buy not yet completed the loan process.
