Announcement:

Moody's: No negative ratings impact on various US RMBS from transfer of servicing to Ocwen from Litton

03 Nov 2011

New York, November 03, 2011 -- Moody's Investors Service stated today that the ratings on tranches issued by 129 transactions serviced by Litton Loan Servicing, LP will not be downgraded, withdrawn or placed on review for possible downgrade, solely as a result of Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC's proposal to transfer servicing to Ocwen's own servicing platform from Litton Loan Servicing, LP's platform. On June 5, 2011, Ocwen Financial and The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. entered into a Purchase Agreement in which Ocwen agreed to acquire the loans and servicing platform of Litton Loan Servicing LP. The transaction closed on September 1, 2011.

Ocwen is rated SQ2- as a primary servicer of Subprime residential mortgage loans and SQ2 as a special servicer of residential mortgage loans. Both these ratings are on review for possible downgrade. Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC requested that Moody's provide its opinion to it as to whether the ratings on the Moody's-rated securities issued in the affected transactions would be downgraded, withdrawn or placed on review for possible downgrade as a result of its proposal to transfer servicing from Litton.

Moody's believed, as of the above date, that the proposed transfer of servicing to Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC in and of itself would not have an adverse credit effect on the current outstanding Moody's ratings of securities issued by the below transactions. Moody's did not express an opinion as to whether this action had, or could have, other non credit-related effects that investors may or may not view positively.

In assessing the credit impact of the transfer, Moody's compared the differences in servicing practices between Litton and Ocwen, and evaluated the effect on short term cash flows to the trust as well as total pool losses.

Ocwen has acquired Litton's entire servicing platform and plans to service Litton's entire portfolio under Ocwen's servicing strategy.

The methodologies used in this rating were "Moody's Approach to Rating US Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities" published in December 2008, and "Moody's Approach to Rating Residential Mortgage Servicers" published in January 2001. Please see the Credit Policy page on www.moodys.com for a copy of these methodologies.

Other factors used in this rating are described in "Moody's Approach to Rating Structured Finance Securities in Default" published in November 2009, and "Updated Moody's Servicer Quality Rating Scale and Definitions" published in May 2005.

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.
