Rating Action:

Moody's lowers ratings of 122 Notes issued by 41 structured finance CDO transactions

24 Apr 2009

New York, April 24, 2009 -- Moody's Investors Service announced today that it has downgraded its ratings of 122 Notes issued by 41 collateralized debt obligation transactions which consist of significant exposure to one or more of Alt-A, Option-ARM and subprime RMBS securities, CLOs, or CMBS. Moody's explained that the rating actions listed below reflect certain updates and projections and recent rating actions on underlying assets on these asset classes as described below. Some of the deals have also experienced an Event of Default.

Moody's revised loss projections for Alt-A RMBS securities which were described in a press release titled "Moody's Updated Loss Projections for '06 and '07 Alt-A RMBS," published on January 22, 2009. According to the press release, on average, Moody's is now projecting cumulative losses of about 20% for 2006 securitizations and about 24% for 2007 securitizations. For more details on the revised loss projections and Moody's updated Alt-A surveillance methodology, please see "Alt-A RMBS Loss Projection Update: January 2009," available on Moodys.com. Moody's revised loss projections for Option ARMs RMBS securities issued in the US since 2004 which were described in a press release titled "Moody's updates loss projections for Option ARMs RMBS" published on February 5, 2009. According to the press release, on average, Moody's is now projecting cumulative losses of 27% for 2006 and 30% for 2007 vintage Option ARM securitizations. For more details on the revised loss projections and Moody's updated Option ARMs surveillance methodology, please see "Option ARMs Loss Projection Update: February 2009" available on Moodys.com.

Moody's revised loss projections for subprime RMBS issued from 2005 to 2007 were described in a press release titled "2005-7 subprime RMBS on downgrade review" published on February 26, 2009. The revised loss projection for 2006 vintage subprime pools is expected to fall within the range of 28% to 32% of the original balance of such pools, whereas Moody's previous estimate was 22%. For 2005 and 2007 pools, such projections are expected to range from 12% to 14% and 33% to 37% of original balance, respectively.

A review of all U.S. commercial mortgage backed securities (CMBS) conduit and fusion transactions rated during the period from 2006 through 2008, and all large loan and single borrower transactions regardless of vintage was concluded recently. The review was announced in a Press Release titled "Moody's announces review of Certain U.S. CMBS Ratings " on February 5, 2009.

Moody's announced revisions and updates to certain key assumptions, including Default Probability and Diversity Score, that it uses to rate and monitor collateralized loan obligations (CLOs) in a Press Release titled "Moody's updates key assumptions for rating CLOs" published on February 4, 2009. The completion of the first stage of its two-stage review of U.S. and EMEA cash flow CLOs was announced on March 27, 2009. As of March 23, Moody's had downgraded approximately 2,071 tranches from 668 transactions.

In addition, Moody's explained that the rating actions taken today incorporate the application of revised and updated key modeling parameter assumptions that Moody's uses to rate and monitor ratings of SF CDOs. The revisions affect the three key parameters in Moody's model for rating SF CDOs: asset correlation, default probability and recovery rate. Moody's announced the changes to these assumptions in a press release titled "Moody's Updates its Key Assumptions for Rating Structured Finance CDOs," published on December 11, 2008.

Moody's initially analyzed and continues to monitor these transactions using primarily the methodology and its supplements for ABS CDOs as described in Moody's Special Report below:

- Moody's Approach to Rating SF CDOs (March 2009)

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.
