Announcement:

Correction to Text, Aug 4, 2011, Moody's confirms Aaa ratings of 5 U.S. states and 303 other public finance issuers indirectly linked to U.S. Government bond rating; negative outlooks assigned

Global Credit Research - 04 Aug 2011

New York, August 04, 2011 -- List of U.S. Public Finance Issuers Confirmed August 4, 2011 incomplete. Revised release follows.

Moody's Investors Service has confirmed the Aaa ratings of 5 U.S. states and 303 other public finance issuers previously identified as indirectly linked to the U.S. government. These actions follow the August 2nd confirmation of the U.S. Aaa sovereign rating that concluded a review for possible downgrade initiated on July 13. In conjunction with assignment of a negative outlook the U.S. government, the outlooks for indirectly linked U.S. public finance issuers have been revised to negative, except for those who remain on review for reasons unrelated to the U.S. government rating action.

With the raising of the federal debt ceiling, the risk of a U.S. default is removed, and the Aaa ratings assigned to the U.S. government, and directly and indirectly linked U.S. public finance ratings have been confirmed. While these indirectly linked issuers' outlooks were moved to negative as a group based on the identification of certain shared characteristics, their outlooks will be reviewed on a case by case basis in the coming weeks. In order to have a stable outlook, an issuer will need to have credit quality that could be expected to remain higher than that of the U.S. government in the event that the sovereign were downgraded from Aaa.

The indirectly linked issuers with their Aaa ratings now confirmed include a total of 308 public finance credits. Moody's confirmed ratings of 5 states: Maryland, New Mexico, South Carolina, Tennessee and the Commonwealth of Virginia, with a combined $24 billion of outstanding debt. Moody's also confirmed the ratings of 161 local governments in 31 states, with a combined $69 billion of outstanding debt. The ratings on three housing issuers with twelve programs, and one university and one not-for-profit institution were also confirmed.

In addition, Moody's has confirmed the ratings of the 6 intercept programs and the enhanced ratings assigned to individual intercept financings of 131 issuers. The outlooks for the intercept program ratings are negative. The enhanced ratings assigned to individual financings do not carry outlooks.

Those indirectly linked ratings that are on review for possible downgrade for reasons unrelated to the U.S. government rating action have not been confirmed and will remain on review.

The list of affected issuers can be found below. A complete list of affected securities and additional analysis is available at www.moodys.com/USRatingActions.
