the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York,
Civil Action No. 07-3193, on behalf of purchasers of the securities of
American Home Mortgage Investment Corp. (“American Home”) (NYSE:AHM)
between July 26, 2006 and July 27, 2007, inclusive (the “Class
Period”), seeking to pursue remedies under the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). The case is pending before the Honorable
Thomas C. Platt.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no

The complaint charges American Home (“AHM”) and Michael Strauss, Chief
Executive Officer with violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the
Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5, by issuing a series of materially false
and misleading statements to the market during the Class Period that
misrepresented and failed to disclose that: (i) AHM’s credit related
expenses were increasing dramatically by reason of its three month
“timely repayment” warranty granted by AHM to buyers who purchased
stated income loans with high loan to value ratios; (ii) AHM was
experiencing an increasing level of delinquencies on loans which were
subject to AHM’s “timely repayment” warranty which were depressing its
earnings and threatening its historical level of dividends; (iii) AHM
was experiencing increasing difficulties in selling its loans and was
required to decrease prices, reducing margins and profits; (iv) AHM was
overstating its financial results by failing to adequately reserve for
“timely repayment” warranties loans and by failing to adequately
write-down the value of certain of the loans in its portfolio as these
loans declined substantially in value; and (v) AHM’s sources of cash
were drying up and it was required to provide additional cash under its
warehouse lines of credit as the value of the loans which
collateralized those borrowings fell dramatically.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all those who purchased
the securities of American Home Mortgage Investment Corp. between July
26, 2006 and July 27, 2007. If you wish to discuss this action or have
any questions concerning this Notice or your rights or interests with
respect to these matters,
