Rating Action:

Moody's confirms the Aaa rating of the Class C CMBS Notes issued by Talisman-3 Finance p.l.c.

Global Credit Research - 04 Jun 2010

EUR 27.5 million of EMEA CMBS affected

Johannesburg, June 04, 2010 -- Moody's Investors Service has today confirmed the rating of the Class C Notes issued by Talisman-3 Finance p.l.c. (amount reflects initial outstanding):

EUR27.5M C Notes, Confirmed at Aaa; previously on Feb 3, 2010 Aaa Placed On Review for Possible Downgrade

At the same time, Moody's has affirmed the rating of the Class A, B and X Notes. Moody's does not rate the Class D, E and F Notes.

1) Transaction Overview and Performance History

Talisman-3 Finance p.l.c. closed in June 2006 and represents the securitisation of initially 13 commercial mortgage loans originated by ABN AMRO BANK N.V., London Branch that were secured by mainly first ranking mortgages on 88 commercial and multi-family properties located across Germany and France. The Berlin Loan and the Dresden Loan are cross defaulted but not cross-collateralised. The properties of the portfolio were predominantly office (57.4%) with the remaining collateral pool consisting of retail (28.8%), multi-family (3.7%), mixed-use (4.7%) and other (5.4%). 69% of the properties were located in Germany and 31% in France.

Since the closing date in June 2006, eight of the initial thirteen loans have pre-paid, representing 81% of the original pool balance. Until the principal amount outstanding under the Notes reduced to a threshold of 50% of the principal amount outstanding at the closing date, prepayments were allocated to the Notes on a 50% sequential and 50% pro rata basis. Subsequent to the 50% threshold being reached, the transaction switched to sequential payment allocation.

Following the prepayments, the five remaining loans are currently secured by 26 properties all located in Germany which are office use (36.3%), retail use (35.8%) and multi-family (27.9%). The five loans are not equally contributing to the portfolio: the cross defaulted Berlin and Dresden Loans represent 51.7% of the current portfolio balance, while the smallest loan (the Trier Loan) represents 7.0%. The current loan Herfindahl index is 2.8. None of the remaining loans have additional debt in the form of B-loans.

The Berlin and Dresden Loans defaulted on their maturity date in January 2010 and were subsequently transferred into special servicing. The remaining three loans are current.

2) Rating Rationale

Moody's placed the Class C Notes on review for possible downgrade in February 2010 due to (i) the payment default of the Berlin and Dresden Loans on their maturity date; and (ii) the updated valuation for the properties securing these two loans as of October 2009, based on which the current underwriter's (U/W) LTV is 143%.

Today's rating action follows a detailed re-assessment of the loan and property portfolio's credit risk against our expectations as of September 2009, taking into account the updated valuations for the Berlin, Dresden, Waterloo and Bastion Loans as well as Moody's expectation of the likely work-out scenario for the defaulted Berlin and Dresden Loans.

The portfolio's credit risk has increased compared to Moody's assessment in September 2009 however, this is mitigated for the Class A, B and C Notes by the (i) good credit enhancement levels; (ii) low note-value levels; and (iii) sequential payment allocation of all further principal receipts. This results in the rating affirmation for the Class A and B Notes and the rating confirmation for the Class C Notes.

3) Moody's Loan Analysis

The Berlin and Dresden Loans are secured by two office properties (in Berlin and Dresden) with a government-linked insurance/compensation provider as the main tenant (91% of the rental income). The weighted average (WA) remaining lease term for the two properties is 12.7 years and the loans have a combined interest coverage ratio of 2.08x, taking into account the default margin. The main reason for the high interest coverage is that the loans are no longer hedged since their maturity date and their base rate is now the 3-month Euribor.

A standstill agreement was in place for the Berlin and Dresden Loans until 18 May 2010 and based on the latest special servicer report, the special servicer and the loan sponsor (Wichford plc) are in discussions concerning a restructuring and extension of the loans. The report also mentions that as part of the envisaged restructuring, there would be a brief marketing period at the outset pursuant to which the borrower would be bound to sell the properties if a minimum price is achieved (the minimum price was not disclosed).

In its base case scenario, Moody's assumes that the loans will either be extended or a standstill agreement will remain in place, but the properties will not be sold in the near future and excess cash from the properties will be trapped by the servicer to partially amortise the loans at some point. However, even with an extension of the loans, Moody's default risk assessment for the Loans remains very high, driven by Moody's LTV for the loans of 136% (slightly lower than the current U/W LTV of 143%).

Moody's has also assumed for its base case scenario that the Trier Loan (the smallest loan in the portfolio) will likely repay on its maturity date. This loan is secured by a retail building in the inner-city of Trier with Interbook GmbH contributing 62% to the rental income. The WA remaining lease term for the property is approximately 7 years and the covenant compliant interest coverage ratio is 1.83x. The property was last valued in October 2005 based on which the current U/W LTV is 78.8%. Moody's has not taken a haircut on this value. According to the servicer report, the borrower under the loan is in negotiations to sell the property. Based on the moderate LTV ratio, small loan size, relatively long remaining lease term and high debt yield of 9.1%, Moody's refinancing default risk assessment for this loan is low (but higher than it was at closing of the transaction).

The other two loans in the portfolio are the Waterloo Loan (20.9% of the portfolio) and the Bastion Loan (20.3%). The Waterloo Loan, which will mature in January 2013, is secured by ten residential properties located in Munster and Mannheim. The portfolio was re-valued as of December 2009. Compared to the last valuation as of December 2005, the value has decreased by 1.2%. Moody's LTV for this loan is 75.2%, same as the current U/W LTV. The Bastion Loan is secured by 13 retail box properties let to Edeka with WA remaining lease term of 10.4 years. The loan's maturity date is in July 2012. The property portfolio was re-valued as of end September 2009 and reflects a 4.4% increase in value compared to the last valuation in July 2005. Moody's LTV for this loan is 84.7% versus the current U/W LTV of 76.1%.

4) Moody's Portfolio Analysis

Property Values. Property values across German markets have declined until the beginning of 2010. Moody's expects them to remain flat and in some instances continue to decline until early 2011. In aggregate the U/W value for the portfolio has decreased by 22.4% since closing and compared to the current U/W market value, Moody's current market value for the total portfolio is 1% lower. On a WA basis, Moody's LTV for the portfolio is 108.9% versus the current U/W WA LTV of 110.7% (Moody's WA LTV is lower due to Moody's lower LTV assumption for the Berlin and Dresden Loans). Looking ahead, Moody's anticipates the values to remain relatively constant until maturity of the loans. Moody's has taken this property value assessment into account when assessing the loans' refinancing risk and potential loss given default. For the Waterloo Loan, Moody's has incorporated a moderate recovery in value from 2011 onwards.

Refinancing Risk. The transaction's exposure to loans maturing in the short-term (2010) is very high. 59% of the current portfolio matured or will mature in 2010, 20% in 2012 and the remaining 21% in 2013. As Moody's expects property values in Germany to only slowly recover from 2011 onwards and expects property lending to remain subdued, in Moody's view, the default risk at maturity has increased substantially for all the loans compared to its closing analysis.

Term Default Risk. The occupational markets in Germany are currently characterised by falling rents, increasing vacancy rates and higher than average tenant default rates. Except for the Waterloo Loan, which is secured by multi-family properties and a granular tenant base, the remaining loans benefit from long leases expiring only after the loan maturity dates. However, Moody's incorporated into its analysis in September 2009 higher than average tenant default rates for a majority of the loans thereby increasing the term default risk assumption for the respective loans.

Overall Default Risk. Since 52% of the portfolio has already defaulted, Moody's default risk assessment for the overall portfolio is very high. The default risk of all loans is predominantly driven by refinancing risk. Besides the defaulted Berlin and Dresden loans, in Moody's view, the Bastion Loan has the highest default risk while the Waterloo Loan has the lowest risk of defaulting.

Work-Out Strategy. In scenarios where a loan defaults, Moody's current expectation is that the special servicer will most likely not pursue an immediate fire sale of the property in today's market conditions. Therefore, Moody's has assumed that in most cases, upon default, a sale of the mortgaged properties and ultimate work-out of the loan will occur at a later point in time, but taking into account the legal final maturity date of the Notes in January 2015.

Concentration Risk. The portfolio securitised in Talisman-3 Finance p.l.c exhibits an average concentration in terms of property types and property location.

Increased Portfolio Loss Exposure. Taking into account the (i) increased default risk of the loans compared to closing of the transaction; (ii) the recent performance of the commercial property markets in Germany; (iii) Moody's opinion about future property value performance; and (iv) the most likely work-out strategies for defaulted loans, Moody's anticipates very high amount of losses on the securitised portfolio. Given the default risk profile and the anticipated work-out strategy for defaulted and potentially defaulting loans, these expected losses are only likely to crystallise towards the end of the transaction term. However, due to the repayments and prepayment since the closing of the transaction and their mostly sequential allocation, the credit enhancement available for the Class A, B and C has increased significantly. The current subordination levels for Moody's rated classes (74.3% for the Class A, 59.3% for the Class B and 44.2% for the Class C) provide protection against these expected losses.

Scenario Analysis. Moody's has also looked at a scenario whereby the properties under the Berlin and Dresden Loans are sold at a value below the current U/W market value and losses and recoveries are allocated to the notes (in this scenario Moody's has also assumed that the Trier Loan would repay at maturity). All else being equal, this scenario would not result in rating sensitivity for the Class A, B and C Notes due the sequential allocation of all principal receipts. A default of the Trier Loan coupled with a decline in the underlying property's value may result in some rating sensitivity on the Class C notes.
