The loan facility is established for an investment funding vehicle comprised
of four limited partnership funds ("Funds"). The four
Funds are "funds of funds" in that they invest in a number
of different investment funds such as leverage buyouts and mezzanine funds,
real estate funds, venture capital funds, and distressed securities
funds. The loan facility provides interim financing for the Funds'
investments and is secured by the uncalled capital commitments of the
This transaction benefits from 19% transaction-specific

are protected upon deterioration in the performance of the facility.
This transaction is partially supported by a liquidity facility provided
by Prime-1-rated Calyon.
With this transaction, Atlantic's program-level credit

Atlantic currently has about $7.7 billion in purchase commitments
and $714.7 million in program-level credit enhancement.
DZ BANK'S AUTOBAHN ADDS $75 MILLION REVOLVING LOAN FACILITY
Autobahn Funding Company LLC ("Autobahn"), a partially supported,
multiseller conduit administered by DZ Bank Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftsbank

purchase vehicle ("SPV"). The SPV alleviates lending
limit constraints under German banking laws. Beethoven will lend
money to the purchasing SPV, through the issuance of ABCP.
The purchasing SPV will, in turn, purchase various asset interests
from Dresdner's customers. The SPV has the ability to purchase
either U.S. or non-U.S. dollar-denominated
assets. To date, there are no assets funded through the new
The liquidity facilities, sized at 102% of each loan amount,

The liquidity facilities will fund for non-defaulted assets plus
the interest on the ABCP. The liquidity facilities will be unavailable
to repay the loans if the SPV becomes bankrupt.
There will be no program-level credit enhancement at the SPV level.
Instead, for each asset purchase, Beethoven's program-level
credit enhancement will be increased by 10% of outstanding ABCP
for each loan facility that it enters into with the SPV. With this
transaction, Beethoven is now authorized to issue approximately
$8.3 billion of ABCP and has program-level credit
enhancement of approximately $240 million.
