Explanatory Note

Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Mello Warehouse Securitization Trust 2021-2

On April 23, 2021, Mello Warehouse Securitization Trust 2021-2 (the “Trust”) and, LLC, as servicer (“loanDepot”), both subsidiaries of loanDepot, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into an indenture (the “Indenture”) with U.S. Bank National Association, as indenture trustee, note calculation agent, standby servicer and initial securities intermediary. Pursuant to the Indenture, the Trust issued $500 million of notes (the “MWST Notes”). The MWST Notes are backed by a revolving warehouse line of credit, secured by newly originated, first-lien, fixed rate or adjustable rate, residential mortgage loans which are originated in accordance with the criteria of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac for the purchase of mortgage loans or in accordance with the criteria of Ginnie Mae for the guarantee of securities backed by mortgage loans and other eligibility criteria set forth in the Master Repurchase Agreement, dated as of April 23, 2021 between loanDepot, as seller and the Trust, as buyer (the “MRA”). loanDepot’s obligations under the MRA are guaranteed by the Issuer under a separate guaranty in favor of the Trust, dated as of April 23, 2021 (the “Guaranty”). Each class of MWST Notes bears interest at 30-day LIBOR plus the applicable margin as defined in the Indenture. The MWST Notes will terminate on the earlier of (i) the three-year anniversary of the initial purchase date, (ii) loanDepot exercising its right to optional prepayment in full or (iii) an event of default which results in the acceleration of the obligations under the Indenture.

The information set forth in this Item 1.01 and in the attached Exhibits 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 is deemed to be “furnished” and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and is not incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company, whether made before or after the date hereof, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
