MOODY'S DOWNGRADES, UPGRADES AND CONFIRMS RATINGS OF CONSECO FINANCE'S MANUFACTURED HOUSING CERTIFICATES/ GREEN TREE'S MANUFACTURED HOUSING CERTIFICATES

29 Dec 2003
MOODY'S DOWNGRADES, UPGRADES AND CONFIRMS RATINGS OF CONSECO FINANCE'S MANUFACTURED HOUSING CERTIFICATES/ GREEN TREE'S MANUFACTURED HOUSING CERTIFICATES

227 Classes of Asset-Backed Securities Affected.

New York, December 29, 2003 -- Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the ratings of 215 classes of senior, mezzanine and subordinate certificates of Green Tree Investment Holdings II LLC (formerly the manufactured housing business of Conseco Finance Corporation) manufactured housing securitizations. In a related action, Moody's upgraded the ratings of five certificate classes and confirmed the ratings of seven classes. The rating actions conclude Moody's review, which began on October 22, 2003.

The rating actions are prompted by the continued performance deterioration of Green Tree Investment Holdings II LLC's (Green Tree) pools, as reflected by the high levels of cumulative repossessions and losses. Many pools have experienced significant erosion of credit support as losses have far exceeded the available amount of excess spread. As credit enhancement eroded, subordinate classes experienced interest shortfalls and were written down.

The high repossessions were triggered by the company's suspension of its repossessed refinancing and default transfer of equity (DTOE) programs, as well as the poor industry conditions in the manufactured housing sector. Green Tree's suspension of the DTOE program caused repossessions to spike because loans previously eligible for this program had to be reclassified as repossessions. In addition, since Green Tree's exit from the MH origination business, the company has been forced to liquidate repossessed units through wholesale channels rather than retail channels. Thus, recovery rates have been lower than historical levels, resulting in higher loss severities.

Although default rates and loss severities have increased significantly, Green Tree's overall repossession inventory has declined as the company aggressively liquidates its repossession inventory in the wholesale market. In addition, delinquency levels have stabilized or improved in some pools.

In June 2003, the sale of Conseco Finance Corporation's manufactured housing business to CFN Investment Holdings II LLC, now known as Green Tree Investment Holdings II LLC, was completed. As a part of the sale, a $150 million repossession financing fund was established by CFN and Fannie Mae. Moody's expects this additional funding to help over time, but uncertainty remains as to its impact on the performance of these deals.

Green Tree Investment Holdings II LLC is a joint venture among Fortress Investment Group LLC, Cerberus Capital Management and J. C. Flowers & Co. LLC.

Moody’s Investors Service, Inc., a wholly-owned credit rating agency subsidiary of Moody’s Corporation (“MCO”), hereby discloses that most issuers of debt securities (including corporate and municipal bonds, debentures, notes and commercial paper) and preferred stock rated by Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. have, prior to assignment of any rating, agreed to pay to Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. for ratings opinions and services rendered by it fees ranging from $1,000 to approximately $2,700,000. MCO and MIS also maintain policies and procedures to address the independence of MIS’s ratings and rating processes. Information regarding certain affiliations that may exist between directors of MCO and rated entities, and between entities who hold ratings from MIS and have also publicly reported to the SEC an ownership interest in MCO of more than 5%, is posted annually at www.moodys.com under the heading “Investor Relations — Corporate Governance — Director and Shareholder Affiliation Policy.”

Additional terms for Australia only: Any publication into Australia of this document is pursuant to the Australian Financial Services License of MOODY’S affiliate, Moody’s Investors Service Pty Limited ABN 61 003 399 657AFSL 336969 and/or Moody’s Analytics Australia Pty Ltd ABN 94 105 136 972 AFSL 383569 (as applicable). This document is intended to be provided only to “wholesale clients” within the meaning of section 761G of the Corporations Act 2001. By continuing to access this document from within Australia, you represent to MOODY’S that you are, or are accessing the document as a representative of, a “wholesale client” and that neither you nor the entity you represent will directly or indirectly disseminate this document or its contents to “retail clients” within the meaning of section 761G of the Corporations Act 2001. MOODY’S credit rating is an opinion as to the creditworthiness of a debt obligation of the issuer, not on the equity securities of the issuer or any form of security that is available to retail investors.

Additional terms for Japan only: Moody's Japan K.K. (“MJKK”) is a wholly-owned credit rating agency subsidiary of Moody's Group Japan G.K., which is wholly-owned by Moody’s Overseas Holdings Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of MCO. Moody’s SF Japan K.K. (“MSFJ”) is a wholly-owned credit rating agency subsidiary of MJKK. MSFJ is not a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (“NRSRO”). Therefore, credit ratings assigned by MSFJ are Non-NRSRO Credit Ratings. Non-NRSRO Credit Ratings are assigned by an entity that is not a NRSRO and, consequently, the rated obligation will not qualify for certain types of treatment under U.S. laws. MJKK and MSFJ are credit rating agencies registered with the Japan Financial Services Agency and their registration numbers are FSA Commissioner (Ratings) No. 2 and 3 respectively.

MJKK or MSFJ (as applicable) hereby disclose that most issuers of debt securities (including corporate and municipal bonds, debentures, notes and commercial paper) and preferred stock rated by MJKK or MSFJ (as applicable) have, prior to assignment of any rating, agreed to pay to MJKK or MSFJ (as applicable) for ratings opinions and services rendered by it fees ranging from JPY125,000 to approximately JPY250,000,000.

MJKK and MSFJ also maintain policies and procedures to address Japanese regulatory requirements.
