SEATTLE, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- WMI Liquidating Trust (the "Liquidating Trust"), formed pursuant to the confirmed Seventh Amended Joint Plan of Affiliated Debtors under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (as modified, the "Plan") of Washington Mutual, Inc., today announced that it will make a distribution (the "Distribution") of approximately $106 million of Runoff Notes, comprising $81 million of First Lien Notes and $25 million of Second Lien Notes, in each case, issued by WMI Holdings Corp., to certain beneficiaries.
In accordance with the priority of payments described in Exhibit H to the Plan, the Distribution will be allocated to claimants in "Tranche 4" in the following amounts: $7 million to holders of Senior Floating Rate Note Claims; $96 million to holders of PIERS Claims; and $3 million to holders of General Unsecured Claims.

The Distribution will be initiated by the Liquidating Trust on Thursday, May 1, 2014.

A separate "Frequently Asked Questions" (or "FAQ") regarding the Distribution will be made available to beneficiaries shortly after the Distribution.
