Rams verdient in der Tat den Titel "Honey, I Shrunk The Company" . Was für ein gelungenes IPO...... Rams is blaming like Northern Rock the freezing of the commercial paper market for the trouble. But when i look at their products.......
Rams schiebt wie z.B. Northern Rock die Probleme ausschließlich auf das einfrieren der Kreditmärkte. Wenn ich mir allerdings die Kreditangebote ansehen sind wohl berechtigte Zweifel angebracht....

Oct. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Westpac Banking Corp. agreed to take over Rams Home Loans Group's branch network and provide A$1.5 billion ($1.3 billion) in funding after the Sydney-based lender failed to refinance its short-term debt.
Westpac, Australia's fourth-biggest bank, will pay A$140 million for the 92 outlets and assume all future loans, it said in a statement today. Rams will retain its current A$14.5 billion of mortgages and remain traded on the stock market, it said in a separate statement.
Rams shares slumped 19 percent today and have declined by two-thirds since listing on July 27, making it the worst- performing initial public offering in Australia this year. Shares of Westpac, which will expand its mortgages business by 10 percent through the deal, rose 2.6 percent to a record.
``They're effectively buying Rams future loans and customers for A$140 million, versus Rams's market value of around A$260 million,'' said Michael Birch, who helps manage the equivalent of $133 million at Wallace Funds Management in Sydney. ``There's nothing much left for Rams now as a viable ongoing concern.''
Rams has sold top-rated Australian mortgage-backed bonds at yields almost three times the premium it paid on debt in June after failing to refinance A$6.1 billion in short-term loans after buyers fled the U.S. commercial paper market. The A$1.5 billion provided by Westpac will be used to help refinance this debt, which covers Rams's current loan book.
`No Deposit? No Worries!'
Rams, which isn't a deposit-taking institution, obtained more than 40 percent of its funding for mortgages from the U.S. commercial paper market. It touts loans for as much as 100 percent of the purchase price of a home under the slogan ``No deposit? No worries!''
Rams shares started trading the same day that the risk of owning corporate bonds soared to the highest on record in the U.S. and Europe. The company began in 1991 as a wholesale finance provider for lenders and expanded its network to serve individuals in 1995.
