RATINGS RATIONALE

This transaction, which closed in November 2006, is a synthetic balance sheet CDO referencing a pool of corporate loans originated by HSBC Bank plc. Moody's has used the internal credit scores assigned to the borrowers by the originator to determine the default probabilities of the obligors in the transaction. The replenishment period terminated in November 2010. Thereafter the underlying portfolio substantially amortised to a current size of GBP 322.7 mil.

The rating actions taken on the notes result primarily from the delevering of the class A notes, which have been paid down by approximately 85% since the last rating action.

This fast amortisation largely compensates for the effect of the credit deterioration currently experienced by the underlying portfolio. Such deterioration is observed through a decline in the average credit rating as measured through the portfolio weighted average rating factor 'WARF' which in the January 2011 report was 2085 compared to the 1,255 (753 including 815 mil of cash) of the last rating action (April 2009) . According to the January 2011 manager's report, roughly GBP 135.3 million (32.6%) of assets in the pool are below the minimum required credit rating. This includes a 6.2% bucket of the portfolio mapped to a Moody's equivalent rating of C while only GBP 23.9 million (5.8%) loans are reported as actual defaults in the January 2011. This gap between actual and expected defaults relates to the conservatism embedded in the mapping.

As a consequence of amortisation, the outstanding portfolio is increasingly concentrated. There are currently 23 corporate entities referenced in the portfolio, with the six largest obligors accounting for roughly the 66% of the entire pool, a country concentration of 86% in the UK and a 58% exposure to the Financial Insurance and Real Estate (FIRE) sector. The weighted average life (WAL) of the portfolio is 1.95.

As a base case, Moody's analyzed the underlying collateral pool including a 2-notch stress on the 4 largest obligors. A weighted-average recovery rate of 37 % (excluding Ca assets) was used. In addition, the global correlation was increased from 3% to 5% reflect the high level of geographical concentration of the underlying loans in the UK and the fact that they are all originated and serviced by HSBC. Because the mapping used to analyse this transaction was performed more than two years ago, an additional stress was applied to capture potential deviations from the established mapping.

In addition, given that mapped ratings do not carry credit indicators such as ratings reviews and outlooks, one sensitivity run consisted in applying a half notch stress to the mapping scale. Large single exposure to obligors were also considered for the analysis and applied a stress applicable to concentrated pools with non publicly rated issuers as per the report titled "Updated Approach to the Usage of Credit Estimates in Rated Transactions" published in October 2009. The model output for the most senior tranche would not be impacted by more than 2 notches in any sensitivity run compared to the base case.

The principal methodologies used in rating Metrix Securities P.L.C. Series 2006-1 were "Moody's Approach to Rating Corporate Collateralized Synthetic Obligations" published in September 2009 and "Moody's Approach to Rating CDOs of SMEs in Europe" published in February 2009. Other methodologies and factors that may have been considered in the process of rating this issuer can also be found on Moody's website.

Moody's investors service applied the Montecarlo simulation framework within CDOROM. These models are available on www.moodys.com under Products and Solutions—Analytical models, upon return of a signed free licensed agreement.

Moody's did not run a separate loss and cash flow analysis other than the one already done using the CDOROM model. For a description of the analysis, refer to the methodology and the CDOROM user guide on Moody's website.

Moody's Investors Service did not receive or take into account a third party due diligence report on the underlying assets or financial instruments related to the monitoring of this transaction in the past 6 months.

In addition, Moody's publishes a weekly summary of structured finance credit, ratings and methodologies, available to all registered users of our website, at www.moodys.com/SFQuickCheck.
