MOODY'S UPDATES LIST OF RATINGS RECEIVING THE (sf) INDICATOR

Global Credit Research - 28 Dec 2010

New York, December 28, 2010 -- On August 2, 2010, Moody's began applying an "(sf)" indicator to its new and existing ratings of structured finance instruments.

Moody's has determined that the (sf) indicator should not apply to student loan backed bonds issued by a non-profit or public instrumentality that issues fewer than three classes of debt. As a result, the "sf" indicator is being removed from the outstanding instruments of the deals listed at the end of this update.

This press release also provides a more detailed list of instruments to which Moody's applies the (sf) indicator (the original list was included in the July 14, 2010 press release titled "Moody's Plans to Publish Structured Finance Ratings Indicator").

The (sf) indicator will be used to satisfy the requirements under the European Regulation on Credit Rating Agencies (the "EU Regulation"). In addition, instruments with the (sf) indicator are the type that Moody's believes to be "structured finance instruments" within the meaning of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's Rule 17g-5(a)(3) and (b)(9) ("Amended Rule").

While in most cases Moody's application of the (sf) indicator to an instrument means that Moody's is applying the Amended Rule to that instrument, there may be instances where an instrument with an (sf) indicator will not be subject to the Amended Rule. This is because the Amended Rule applies only to Moody's ratings of structured finance instruments where, among other things, Moody's initiated the rating process on or after June 2, 2010 and cannot rely upon a temporary exemption that the SEC has granted in respect of ratings on structured finance instruments that are issued by non-U.S. persons and offered and sold outside the U.S.

While subject to change, the following is a current list of the key types of instruments to which Moody's applies the (sf) indicator:

1. Asset backed commercial paper (ABCP)

2. Asset backed securities (ABS)

3. Agency MBS excluding agency MBS backed transactions issued by U.S. state and local housing finance agencies

4. Closed-end fund debt or preferred equity of funds that materially invest in structured finance instruments

5. Closed-end fund debt or preferred equity of funds that issue three or more classes of debt

6. Collateralized debt obligations (CDOs)

7. Commercial mortgage backed securities (CMBS)

8. Credit linked notes, repackaged securities, or structured notes of one or more structured finance instruments or with credit tranching

9. Future flow financings

10. Principal protected notes secured by one or more structured finance instruments even if the promise is not based on structured finance instruments

11. Residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS)

12. Structured investment vehicle (SIV) instruments

13. Student Loan Backed Bonds issued by a non-profit or public instrumentality that issue three or more classes of debt

14. U.S. state and local housing finance agencies that issue three or more classes of debt

15. Variable Promise Notes issued on or after August 2, 2010 with non standard sources of variation

16. Whole business securitizations (e.g., instruments backed by restaurant franchise royalties and pub securitizations, etc.)

While subject to change, the following are among the instruments or ratings to which Moody's currently does not apply the (sf) indicator:

1. Closed-end fund debt or preferred equity of funds that do not materially invest in structured finance instruments

2. Closed-end fund debt or preferred equity of funds that issue fewer than three classes of debt

3. Covered bonds

4. Credit linked notes, repackaged securities or structured notes of non-structured finance instruments without credit tranching

5. Credit Tenant Leases with a single beneficial interest in the trust

6. Derivative product company (DPC) ratings

7. Enhanced equipment trust certificates (EETCs)

8. Government enterprises instruments (e.g., instruments of water & sewer authorities, airports, power authorities, U.S. state and local housing finance agencies that issue fewer than three classes of debt, toll road authorities, etc.)

9. Interest only and principal only strips and other pro-rata slices of non structured finance instruments

10. Money market and bond fund ratings

11. Pass through financings of non-structured finance instruments issuing a single interest (e.g., a pass through of 5 corporate bonds)

12. Project and corporate infrastructure financings (e.g., instruments for which the primary source of repayment is revenue generated from the operation of infrastructure assets such as power plants, chemical processing plants, mines, energy, transportation, environment, telecommunications infrastructure, housing projects, etc.)

13. Student loan backed bonds issued by a non-profit or public instrumentality that issues fewer than three classes of debt

Moody's underlying rationale for applying the indicator, established after internal reviews as well as discussions with market participants, is based on the definition of "structured finance instrument" in the EU Regulation, the description of "structured finance" contained in the Amended Rule, and other similar concepts in other legislation and international principles such as Basel II (hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Regulations").

Moody's sought to define "structured finance instrument" as objectively as possible. Our definition is not tied to our ratings criteria, but rather is based on specific language in the Regulations. For instruments that were difficult to categorize we also considered general market practice.

In general, the key principles that we use for determining whether an instrument is included as a structured finance instrument include:

? Payments depend upon the performance of an exposure/pool of exposures.

? The existence of a special purpose entity and whether economic interests are transferred to such special purpose entity.

? The instruments are not obligations of or full or substantially full recourse to the originator/sponsor.

? The presence of securitization tranching. We further interpret "tranching" as contemplated in paragraph 539 of Basel II dealing with traditional securitizations: "The stratified/tranched structures that characterize securitizations differ from ordinary senior/subordinated debt instruments in that junior securitization tranches can absorb losses without interrupting contractual payments to more senior tranches, whereas subordination in a senior/subordinated debt structure is a matter of priority of rights to the proceeds of liquidation".

? The presence of a guarantee or insurance policy either covering losses on the underlying assets or issued bonds typically would not impact the categorization of whether an instrument is a structured finance instrument.

As a result of the many factors that Moody's considers in its definition of a 'structured finance instrument", Moody's may apply the (sf) indicator to some instruments that market participants may not have considered to be structured finance instruments. Conversely, the indicator may not be applied to securities that some market participants may consider to be structured finance instruments.

The "sf" indicator is being removed from the outstanding instruments of the deals listed below:

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 appraisal and rating services rendered by it fees ranging from $1,500 to approximately $2,500,000. 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 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 appraisal and rating services rendered by it fees ranging from JPY200,000 to approximately JPY350,000,000.

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