Announcement:

Moody's: No negative ratings impact from amendments to 265 RMBS deals currently serviced by Aurora

27 Jun 2012

New York, June 27, 2012 -- Moody's Investors Service stated today that proposed amendments to servicing agreements of the affected transactions listed below will not, in and of itself and at this time, result in a reduction or withdrawal of Moody's current ratings of the securities issued by the affected transactions.

As the servicer for the affected transactions, Aurora Loan Services LLC, requested that Moody's provide its opinion on whether the ratings of the securities issued by the affected transactions, would be downgraded or withdrawn as a result of three amendments that are being made to the servicing agreements for the affected transactions. The first series of amendments will allow servicing advances in the affected transactions to be funded by an advance facility. The second amendment will require that the account used by the servicer to hold monthly collections from borrowers be held at a depository institution whose long-term unsecured debt obligations are rated at least A2 by Moody's and whose commercial paper, short-term debt obligations, demand deposits or other short-term deposits are rated at least P-1 by Moody's. The final amendment modifies a servicer replacement event in several of the affected transactions. The servicing agreements of these transactions generally, provide an option to the master servicer or the seller to terminate the servicer if its servicer rating was to be downgraded by a certain number of rating levels or withdrawn. Aurora is proposing to amend this event of default to reflect that the master servicer or the seller would have this option to terminate the servicer if its servicer rating were to be withdrawn or if it were to be downgraded by one level or more.

Moody's view is based primarily on a) it's opinion that including an option to fund the advances in the transaction through an advance facility will not have a negative impact on servicer's advance rates or advance policies and therefore will not affect the affected transactions' performance b) the fact that the new ratings requirements for depository institutions are consistent with Moody's published guidelines for eligible investments in structured transactions and c) the fact that Moody's did not give any benefit to the existence of the servicer replacement event that is being modified.

Moody's believed that the amendments did not have an adverse effect on the credit quality of the securities such that the Moody's ratings were impacted. Moody's did not express an opinion as to whether the amendments could have other, non credit-related effects.

Please see the attached spreadsheet for the list of affected transactions:

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.
