Announcement:

Moody's takes negative actions on structured finance transactions directly linked to European sovereigns and European and US banks recently downgraded or placed on review

Global Credit Research - 17 Feb 2012

160 tranches from 107 transactions affected

London, 17 February 2012 -- Moody's Investors Service announced today that it has downgraded the ratings of structured finance securities that are directly linked to the ratings of Italy and Spain, which were downgraded by Moody's on February 13, 2012. Moody's has also announced the placement on review for downgrade structured finance securities that are directly linked to the ratings of certain European and US banks, which were placed under review on February 15, 2012.

Please click on this link http://www.moodys.com/viewresearchdoc.aspx?docid=PBS_SF276836 for the List of Affected Credit Ratings. This list is an integral part of this Press Release and identifies each affected issuer.

Today's rating actions affect 160 tranches including 3 asset backed securities, 6 residential mortgage backed securities, 39 repackaged securities in Europe and 112 structured notes and collateralized debt obligations in the US.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Moody's explained that four of the rating actions taken today are the result of the rating actions taken on the governments of Italy and Spain. Italy and Spain were downgraded to A3 from A2 and A1, respectively on 13 February 2012. For further information on the underlying action see the press releases titled "Moody's adjusts ratings of 9 European sovereigns to capture downside risks" on www.moody.com

The remaining actions were driven by the placement under review of numerous banks in Europe and the US. For further information on the underlying action see the press releases titled "Moody's reviews ratings of European Banks" and "Moody's reviews ratings of global investment banks" on www.moody.com.

Each rating is essentially a pass-through of the rating of the underlying security, guarantor or reference credit. Noteholders are exposed to the credit risk of the underlying entity and therefore the rating moves in lock-step in each case. Each related underlying security, guarantor, reference entity or related government exposure is detailed in the link at the end of this announcement.

Moody's notes that these transactions are subject to a high level of macroeconomic uncertainty, which could negatively impact the ratings of the notes, as evidenced by 1) uncertainties of credit conditions in the general economy 2) the acute sovereign and banking crisis in the euro area, which is weakening the credit profiles of banks exposed to the currency union. This crisis accentuates challenges facing banks globally that have accelerated since second-half 2011. For more information please refer to two interrelated Special Reports published on 15 February 2012: "Crisis Weakens Bank Credit Profiles" and "How Moody's Analysis Reflects Challenges" and 3) the recent review of European sovereigns reflecting their susceptibility to the growing financial and macroeconomic risks emanating from the euro area crisis. Moody's also discusses the relationship between sovereign and structured finance ratings in its special report "Assessing the Impact of the Eurozone Sovereign Debt Crisis on Structured Finance Transactions," published in April 2011.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was "Moody's Approach to Rating Repackaged Securities" published in April 2010. Please see the Credit Policy page on www.moodys.com for a copy of this methodology.

No additional cash flow analysis or stress scenarios have been conducted as the rating was directly derived from the rating of the underlying security, guarantor or reference credit.

REGULATORY DISCLOSURES

For ratings issued on a program, series or category/class of debt, this announcement provides relevant regulatory disclosures in relation to each rating of a subsequently issued bond or note of the same series or category/class of debt or pursuant to a program for which the ratings are derived exclusively from existing ratings in accordance with Moody's rating practices. For ratings issued on a support provider, this announcement provides relevant regulatory disclosures in relation to the rating action on the support provider and in relation to each particular rating action for securities that derive their credit ratings from the support provider's credit rating. For provisional ratings, this announcement provides relevant regulatory disclosures in relation to the provisional rating assigned, and in relation to a definitive rating that may be assigned subsequent to the final issuance of the debt, in each case where the transaction structure and terms have not changed prior to the assignment of the definitive rating in a manner that would have affected the rating. For further information please see the ratings tab on the issuer/entity page for the respective issuer on www.moodys.com.
