McLean, VA – Freddie Mac (OTC:FMCC) today issued its 2011 funding calendars [PDF], which provide optional announcement dates for Reference Notes® securities and announcement and auction dates for Reference Bills® securities. The 2011 funding calendars are available on the Debt Securities page of the company’s Web site at www.FreddieMac.com.
On the Reference Notes announcement dates set forth on Freddie Mac’s 2011 Reference Notes Calendar, Freddie Mac will announce whether it plans to issue a Reference Notes security. If a Reference Notes security will be issued, Freddie Mac also will provide relevant transaction information.
The company’s 2011 Reference Bills Calendar provides announcement and auction dates for one-, three-, six- and 12-month Reference Bills securities. One-month Reference Bills auctions will be optional each week, with a minimum of one auction per month. Three- and six-month Reference Bills will be auctioned every week. Auctions of 12-month Reference Bills securities will be optional each week.

The announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation to buy any of these securities. Any such offering will be made by an offering circular and, in the case of Reference Notes securities, the applicable pricing supplement.
