Update - 2009-05-12: A news brief from the Philadelphia Inquirer had this update:

"About 1,650 former employees of Mortgage Lenders Network, including about 90 in Horsham, will divide a $2.7 million settlement from the bankrupt firm. The Connecticut company failed to provide the required 60-day warning to employees that it would close, said their lawyer, Charles A. Ercole of Klehr, Harrison, Harvey, Branzburg & Ellers L.L.P. in Philadelphia. The company had argued in bankruptcy court in Delaware that the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act allows companies not to give the notice if business conditions change too quickly."

Update - 2007-02-05: It's official: they're bankrupt.

Update - 2007-01-24: - Ok, I had to post this—a message from brokeroutpost by an MLN broker who insisted in December that MLN was fine and had no problems whatsoever:

Just wanted to set the record straight.

MLN is NOT shutting down - we have not lost any investors to my knowledge and even if we did, we don't put all of our eggs in one basket - we have other investors.

Anyone that would like to run scenarios by me - feel free.

We are still in business, we have been in business over 11 years and we will continue to be one of the leaders in the subprime/Alt A world.


Wow. This is a great piece of history because it shows how you never really know until you know, and how delusional and/or misinformed people "on the inside" can be when their own interests pit them against reality.

Original Listing - 2006-12-29: $3.31 bln of subprime loans originated in Q3 2006.

It appears that 700+ people will lose their jobs (MLN employs about 1,000 workers).

Important: This company is on our list of lending operations that have "imploded". However, please note that "imploded" is a somewhat subjective and does not necessarily mean operations are ceased permanently: it can mean bankruptcy filing, temporary but open-ended halting of major operations, or "firesale" acquisition. All information here is provisional, and may contain inaccuracies (especially newer information). If you are planning on doing business with this company or any other one listed on this site, you should inquire with them directly on whether they can still meet your needs. Many are still operating in some capacity.
