MOODY'S ASSIGNS PRIME-1 RATING TO RAMS HOME LOANS PTY LIMITED'S RAMS FUNDING TWO LLC/RAMS MORTGAGE SECURITIES PTY LIMITED ABCP PROGRAM

In Sydney, Moody's has assigned a Prime-1 rating to the secured liquidity notes ("SLNs") issued by Rams Funding Two LLC ("RFTL") and Rams Mortgage Securities Pty Limited ("RMS"). RFTL and RMS (together, "RFTL/RMS") are joint and several issuers of a newly established, partially supported, single-seller ABCP program sponsored by Rams Home Loans Pty Limited. RMS issues SLNs in its capacity as trustee of the RAMS Mortgage Securities Trust in respect of Series 2. RFTL/RMS has an authorized issuance amount of initially US$5 billion. This is the second series of SLNs backed by mortgages originated by RAMS Home Loans rated by Moody's. Each series of SLNs is segregated from each other series, and relates to a specific pool of mortgages.

RFTL/RMS will use the proceeds of its SLNs to fund the purchase of a revolving pool of mortgages. Eligibility criteria and portfolio parameters ensure the quality of the mortgage pool is maintained. A summary of relevant eligibility criteria and portfolio parameters are set out in Moody's New Issue Report, available on www.moodys.com and www.moodys.com.au.

The underlying mortgages are originated by RAMS Home Loans, a large Australian non-bank loan originator. RAMS Home Loans has been an active issuer of term residential mortgage backed securities. Since 1995, it has securitised approximately A$16 billion of loans, via 15 transactions, all rated by Moody's.

For further details, please see Moody's press release dated March 16, 2006. The New Issue Report for Rams Funding Two LLC/Rams Mortgage Securities Pty Limited is available on Moody's website, http://www.moodys.com.

MOODY'S ASSIGNS PRIME-1 RATING TO DEUTSCHE BANK'S TUCSON FUNDING LLC ABCP PROGRAM

Moody's has assigned a Prime-1 rating to the secured liquidity notes and callable notes, collectively ("Short Term Notes") issued by Tucson Funding LLC ("Tucson"). Tucson is a newly established, partially supported, multiseller extendible ABCP program sponsored by Deutsche Bank AG ("DB", rated Aa3/Prime-1/B-), NY Branch. DB will be the administrator, cash collateral provider, liquidity agent, and collateral agent. Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas (A1/Prime-1/C) will serve as issuing and paying agent. Tucson has an authorized program limit of $3.75 billion and may issue U.S. dollar-denominated Short Term Notes in the US market.

Tucson is one of the first reduced liquidity, multiseller extendible note programs in the ABCP market worldwide. Tucson will use the proceeds from the sale of ABCP to invest in various eligible assets including consumer receivables, leases, loans, mortgages, other financial assets and highly rated securities. All assets are subject to rating agency prior review.

Moody's Prime-1 rating assigned to Tucson's Short Term Notes is based on, among other factors, the ratings of the assets purchased and the structural protections of the program, including the bankruptcy remote status of Tucson. In addition, the rating is based on the liquidity support provided by liquidation of the assets during the extension period as well as liquidity facilities to be provided by Prime-1-rated banks as necessary. Moody's rating also takes into account the capabilities of DB as sponsor, and in its roles as program administrator, liquidity agent, cash collateral provider, and collateral agent.

For further details, please see Moody's press release dated March 15, 2006.

THE RATINGS OF THE FOLLOWING ABCP PROGRAMS WERE AFFIRMED BY MOODY'S AT PRIME-1 DURING THE PERIOD MARCH 14, 2006 THROUGH MARCH 20, 2006:

CALYONS' ATLANTIC ADDS $75 MILLION TRADE RECEIVABLE FACILITY

Atlantic Asset Securitization LLC ("Atlantic"), a partially supported, multiseller ABCP program sponsored by Calyon (Aa2/Prime-1/C), has added a $75 million interest in an existing trade receivable facility. The transaction was part of a $275 million co-purchased facility with ABN Amro's Amsterdam Funding Corp. ($125 million share) and Wachovia's Variable Funding Capital Corp. ($75 million share). The receivables are originated by a non-investment-grade rated manufacturer of plastics and chemicals. The products are sold to a well-diversified customer base from a variety of industries, including retail stores, and companies in the automotive and agricultural industry.

Transaction-specific credit enhancement is based on a dynamic formula that responds to changes in both defaults and dilution, and has averaged 26% with a floor of 12%. This transaction is partially supported by a liquidity facility provided by Calyon. With this transaction, Atlantic's program-level credit enhancement increased by 10% of its purchase commitment.

Atlantic currently has about $7.8 billion in purchase commitments and has $692.5 million in program-level credit enhancement.

SOCGEN'S BARTON ADDS $500 MILLION INTEREST IN REVOLVING HOME EQUITY LOAN WAREHOUSE FACILITY

Barton Capital LLC ("Barton"), a partially supported, multiseller conduit sponsored by Societe Generale (Aa2/Prime-1/B+), has taken a $500 million interest in a $2.3 billion revolving home equity loan warehouse facility. The facility is backed by closed-end, fixed rate, fully amortizing home equity loans originated by an investment-grade-rated financial institution. The loans may remain in the facility for a maximum of 364 days. Investors in this transaction benefit from 22% transaction-specific credit enhancement in the form of overcollateralization, as well as excess spread. This transaction is partially supported by a liquidity facility that funds for non-defaulted assets.

With this transaction, Barton currently has about $18.1 billion in purchase commitments and $1.40 billion in program-level credit enhancement.

DEUTSCHE BANK'S GEMINI PURCHASES SARATOGA ABCP BACKED BY $500 MILLION UNRATED NOTE

Gemini Securitization Corp., LLC, ("Gemini"), a partially supported, multiseller conduit sponsored by Deutsche Bank AG (Aa3/Prime-1/B-), has purchased ABCP from its sister conduit, Saratoga Funding Corp., LLC ("Saratoga"). The Saratoga ABCP is backed by a $500 million interest in Class A Note issued out of a credit card master trust. The underlying assets consist of credit card receivables originated by an unrated subsidiary of an investment-grade-rated company.

The Class A Note benefits from 26% transaction-specific credit enhancement, which is provided in the form of subordination. The transaction is partially supported through a liquidity facility provided by Deutsche Bank.

With this transaction, Gemini's program-level credit enhancement was increased by 8% of its purchase limit. Gemini has total asset commitments of $11.4 billion, with $9.4 billion of outstanding ABCP. Gemini's total program-level credit enhancement is $678.4 million (with a floor of $250 million).

RABOBANK'S NIEUW AMSTERDAM ADDS $45 MILLION Aaa-RATED CLO FACILITY AND AMENDS PROGRAM STRUCTURE

Nieuw Amsterdam Receivables Corp. ("Nieuw Amsterdam"), a partially supported, multiseller ABCP conduit sponsored by Rabobank Nederland (Aaa/Prime-1/A), has added $45 million Aaa-rated CLO notes. This transaction is partially supported by liquidity. The liquidity facility funds for maturing ABCP as long as the CLO notes are not rated below Caa2.

In addition, Nieuw Amsterdam has amended the structure of its program-level credit enhancement. Prior to the amendment, the entire portfolio of assets in Nieuw Amsterdam was supported by a letter of credit ("LOC") sized at $300 million. Now, Nieuw Amsterdam's portfolio will be divided into two asset pools. Each pool will be supported by a $200 million LOC, and the LOC will be available to cover credit losses in the respective pool only. Once the aggregate losses to the pool exceed the amount available under the liquidity facility and pool-related LOC, losses will be shared among all remaining ABCP outstanding. Assets in one pool cannot be transferred to another pool unless the transfer is in connection with the creation of a new LOC.

Nieuw Amsterdam's required level of program-level credit enhancement for each asset pool remains unchanged at the greater of 10% of the purchase limit (excluding highly rated assets) and 5% of total purchase limit. The aggregate LOC amount has been increased to $400 million.

As of February 2006, Nieuw Amsterdam had $3.3 billion ABCP outstanding and was authorized to issue up to $5.2 billion ABCP.
