“Countrywide has longstanding and time-tested funding liquidity contingency planning,” said Eric P. Sieracki, Chief Financial Officer … “Our mortgage company has significant short-term funding liquidity cushions and is supplemented by the ample liquidity sources of our bank,” Sieracki continued. “In fact, we have almost $50 billion of highly-reliable short-term funding liquidity available as a cushion today.

Countrywide’s shares, which had dropped 1.65 percent during regular trading, had risen $0.44 to $27.21 in after hours trading as of the time this post was published.
