Rating Action:

Moody's takes rating actions on several German RMBS transactions

07 Apr 2009

Frankfurt, April 07, 2009 -- Moody's Investors Service has announced that it has taken ratings actions on a number of German RMBS following the update of Moody's rating methodology for German RMBS. A report titled "Moody's Updated Milan Methodology for Rating German RMBS" which describes the methodology updates in more detail was published earlier today. Due to the change in methodology, 16 tranches of 4 transactions were downgraded by 1 to 2 notches. These negatively affected tranches were issued by E-MAC DE 2005-I B.V., E-MAC DE 2006-I B.V., E-MAC DE 2006-II B.V. and E-MAC DE 2007-I B.V.

In addition, the review of German RMBS also led to upgrades of 9 tranches of 3 transactions by 1 to 3 notches. All other ratings of outstanding notes of German RMBS transactions were affirmed.

As indicated in Moody's earlier announcement, the most important update in Moody's methodology leads to higher stressed default frequency assumptions for loans with high loan-to values (LTV). Moody's has assessed updated loan-by-loan information for the outstanding portfolios to determine the volatility of the distribution of future losses. As a result, Moody's has updated its Milan Aaa credit enhancement (Milan Aaa CE) assumptions as detailed below. The expected loss and the Milan Aaa CE are the two key parameters used by Moody's to calibrate its loss distribution curve, which is one of the core inputs in the cash-flow model it uses to rate RMBS transactions. The methodology update resulted in significantly higher Milan Aaa CE numbers for 4 transactions which has in turn lead to negative rating actions. Moody's has not adjusted upwards its portfolio expected loss assumptions.

The following 4 transactions were affected by the update in methodology as in these transactions loans with very high loan-to-values were securitised. All notes issued by those 4 issuers also remain on review for possible downgrade because of the existing operational concerns due to GMAC-RFC's role as issuer administrator in these transactions and the lack of a back-up arrangement as explained in more detail in Moody's announcements in respect to of these transactions published on 30 May 2008 and 12 December 2008.

As part of a review of outstanding German RMBS transactions, Moody's has also identified 9 tranches of 3 transactions that have been upgraded.
