A termination fee of $3 million has been set for the agreement of specialty firm Redwood Trust Inc. to buy real estate lender CoreVest American Finance Lender LLC and several of its affiliates from CoreVest Management Partners LLC and from certain affiliates of Fortress Investment Group LLC's credit funds business.
The deal, which was announced Oct. 14, was expected to be completed in two to three business days.
