    Q. Okay. Would you describe for us what the responsibilities were in terms of the previous organization, MERS 2. What responsibilities does Merscorp, Inc. take on when it started?

    Hultman A. When Merscorp, Inc. started on June 30,1998, it succeeded and assumed all of the duties and responsibilities of powers of the original MERS Corporation, Inc. in 1995. As of January 1st, 1999, the functionalities of the original companies were bifurcated into two parts. The subsidiary held was given the responsibility to hold title to the mortgage lien or become the beneficiary of a deed of trust and all the responsibilities related to that. The parent company, and the parent company obviously was the sole shareholder of the subsidiary, the parent company is the operating company which all — everybody’s employed by the operating company. It’s the company that owns the registries, owns all of the intellectual property. It’s the one that does all of the operations. So in essence, everything that the old companies did except for the title holding function.

    Q. And as for the title holding function, that now resides with the third iteration of Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. as of January 1, 1999, is that correct?

    Hultman A. Yes.
