NIO Financials has been hit hard by the global financial crisis.
The bank says its share price has fallen by as much as 30% in the past six months, and its losses are up more than $1 billion.
But it’s also on the ropes, losing $4.7 billion over the past three months.
NIO has been one of the largest and most profitable US banks.
It’s the largest mortgage lender in the United States, with a market capitalization of about $4 trillion.
Its shares have fallen since November, hitting a low of $11.50 in December, and now are trading at about $9.80.
But while NIO’s market capitalisation has dropped, its earnings have been higher than those of any other US bank, according to Bloomberg News.
The company is currently paying off loans for mortgage holders on a $2 billion loan to US homeowners, which is about 10% of its total loans.
That loan is a part of the $15.7 trillion deal between the US government and the banks to restructure the country’s debt.
NIO says the mortgage deal is the largest such deal in the world.
“The US government is providing millions of people with homes that they could not have bought in the normal way,” said David Schanzer, a co-head of NIO financials.
“The deal gives the bank a very large amount of cash flow that it has not had in years, so we’re really seeing this increase in our profitability.”
The deal, announced by Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew on Wednesday, gives NIO more leverage in its mortgage lending business.
After a long, difficult negotiation process, the US and other financial markets have come to terms on a deal that will allow NIO to refinance mortgages at a lower interest rate than the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires.
The deal will also allow the bank to borrow more from the Federal Reserve, which will allow it to repay mortgage loans faster.
The deal also means that the bank will be able to borrow up to $1.3 trillion from the Fed.
But NIO will have to wait for the US Congress to pass a bill that allows the bank and its investors to borrow the money.
