Kondaur Capital Corp., an active investor in distressed and underperforming mortgages, is marketing a $79 million MBS collateralized by $263 million of nonperforming loans (NPL).The bond is being underwritten by Royal Bank of Scotland in what appears to be a private placement, the offering. A copy of the offering prospectus was provided to National Mortgage News.

A search of the Securities and Exchange Commission's database found no filing under the Kondaur name.

Company principal Jon Daurio declined to comment on the offering. He is a co-founder of the firm along with John Kontoulis. The name Kondaur is derived from their last names.

If successful, the offering will allow Kondaur to cash out of some of its investments in NPLs. But the prospectus offered no insight on what the Tustin, Calif.-based company paid for the collateral in the secondary market. However, the offering circular noted that after Kondaur reevaluated the loans, it determined that the weighted average loan-to-value ratio is 210%.

The original LTV on the loans is 83%, the company said. The bond Kondaur hopes to sell does not mature until the year 2036.
