RABOBANK'S NIEUW AMSTERDAM RECEIVABLES CO. (NARCO) AMENDED TO ALLOW SECURITIES PURCHASES
NARCO, a partially supported multi-seller ABCP conduit sponsored by Rabobank (Aaa/P-1) was amended to allow for a $980 million securities purchase facility within the conduit.

The investment guidelines of this security purchase facility require that at the time of purchase, each security has to be rated A2 or higher by Moody's. The conduit is not permitted to purchase any interest only or principal only securities. Individual securities are subject to size limits of $150,000,000 if rated Aaa by Moody's, and $75,000,00 if rated between A2 and Aaa by Moody's. Additionally, the securities portfolio is subject to aggregate concentration limits of $500,000,000 for securities rated less than Aaa by Moody's, and $300,000,000 for securities rated A1 or A2 by Moody's.

The credit enhancement for this securities purchase facility is based upon Moody's credit enhancement methodology for credit arbitrage conduits. Currently, there is a $100 million dollar letter of credit benefiting NARCO that is available to both the term and trade receivables component of the conduit, as well as the securities purchase facility.

Liquidity funding for the securities purchase facility is subject to a borrowing base test that excludes defaulted assets, i.e. assets rated Caa3 or lower by Moody's.

SCOTIA'S LIBERTY STREET FUNDING CORPORATION ADDS $100 MILLION AUTO LOAN FACILITY
