According to the SEC: "control provisions of the Exchange Act in connection with three transactions involving securities issued by a Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit ('REMIC') - an investment vehicle used for the pooling of mortgage loans and the issuance of mortgage-backed securities. In each of the transactions, one of which occurred in December 2005 and two in March 2006, Deerfield Capital improperly recognized a gain from the purported sales of the REMIC while simultaneously purporting to purchase a "new" security (or 're-REMIC') representing nearly the same rights to nearly the same stream of payments. Deerfield Capital's recognition of a gain on the sale of the REMIC was contrary to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ('GAAP')."
