Finance of America to Acquire Assets of Reverse Mortgage Lender AAG

Strategic acquisition marks expansion into direct-to-consumer retail channel, underscores commitment to expanding access to home equity solutions for America’s retirees

Finance of America Companies Inc., a leading specialty finance and solutions platform, announced it will acquire assets of American Advisors Group (“AAG”), a leading direct-to-consumer reverse mortgage lender, in exchange for a combination of cash and equity. The transaction underscores FOA’s commitment to invest in businesses that have strong growth potential with structural and demographic tailwinds.

Commenting on bringing AAG’s direct-to-consumer retail channel under the FOA umbrella, Graham A. Fleming, FOA President and Interim Chief Executive Officer, said, “We believe home equity will be an increasingly important asset for Americans to consider in order to supplement their incomes, especially in retirement. We are confident that our expansion into this direct-to-consumer retail channel will position us to further educate, grow and service this market while driving enhanced value and opportunities for our customers, employees, partners and investors.”

The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2023, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.

In support of this transaction, existing stockholders of the Company, including entities affiliated with Brian L. Libman, the Company’s chairman and founder, have committed to invest an additional $30 million of capital into the Company through a private placement of FOA’s common stock.
