Exhibit 99.1
Pamela Marsh (626) 535-8465
Meg Wade (626) 535-5905
PASADENA, Calif. – May 1, 2006 – IndyMac Bancorp, Inc. (NYSE: NDE) (“Indymac®” or the “Company”), the holding company for IndyMac Bank, F.S.B. (“Indymac Bank®”), today announced that its board of directors has authorized management to evaluate and plan for the potential sale of a minority economic stake of approximately 20 percent in Indymac Bank’s reverse mortgage subsidiary, Financial Freedom Senior Funding Corporation (“Financial Freedom”), through an initial public offering. Financial Freedom originated $1.1 billion in reverse mortgages and earned $8.0 million in the first quarter of 2006, compared to $507 million in originations and $4.2 million in earnings for the first quarter of 2005. For the full year 2005, Financial Freedom’s national market share is estimated to be 56 percent of reverse mortgage originations and 53 percent of reverse mortgage servicing. As of March 31, 2006, Financial Freedom had 984 employees.
The strategic rationale for the potential offering includes the following:
  1.   Public company structure expected to drive growth and opportunities.
  2.   Creates vehicle to align Financial Freedom management incentives directly with performance which, additionally, enhances ability to attract and retain talent.
  3.   Provides Indymac the ability to monetize its initial investment in Financial Freedom while continuing to maintain a controlling interest.
  4.   Enhances shareholder value of Indymac as the investing community could identify more easily the value of the Financial Freedom franchise.
  5.   Provides a template to attract entrepreneurs to Indymac.
The potential benefits from an initial public offering to Indymac’s shareholders will be offset to a minor extent by management time and costs that will be incurred to oversee another public company. The decision to proceed with the offering remains subject to future board approval and other factors, including market conditions.
This announcement shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities described herein, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which the offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. This announcement is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135 under the Securities Act of 1933.
