Rating Action:

Moody's upgrades mezzanine notes of Spanish SME ABS Foncaixa Ftgencat 3, FTA, other notes are confirmed.

01 Feb 2010

Frankfurt, February 01, 2010 -- Moody's Investors Service has taken today the following actions on the long-term credit rating of the following notes issued by Foncaixa Ftgencat 3, FTA:

- class A(G) notes, Confirmed at Aaa, previously placed under review for downgrade on 23 March 2009

- class B notes, Upgraded to Aa3 from A1, previously placed under review for downgrade on 23 March 2009

- class C notes, Confirmed at Baa2, previously placed under review for downgrade on 23 March 2009

- class D notes, Confirmed at Ba2, previously placed under review for downgrade on 23 March 2009

Moody's initially assigned definitive ratings on 16 November 2005.

Today's rating action concludes the rating review resulting from Moody's revision of its methodology for granular SME portfolios in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). This revised methodology was introduced on 17 March 2009 and the affected transactions had been subsequently placed on review for downgrade on 23 March 2009.

As a result of its revised methodology, Moody's has reviewed its assumptions for Foncaixa Ftgencat 3 collateral portfolio, taking into account anticipation of performance deterioration in the current down cycle, and the exposure of the transaction to the real estate sector (either through security in the form of a mortgage or debtors operating in these markets). The deterioration of the Spanish economy has been reflected in Moody's negative sector outlook on Spanish SME securitisation transactions ("EMEA ABS & RMBS: 2009 Review & 2010 Outlook", published in January 2010). To date, this transaction has been performing better than the Spanish SME index. As of December 2009, the outstanding 90+ delinquency rate is at 1.75% of current balance and the cumulative defaults (more than 12 months in delinquencies) stand at 0.39% of original balance. At end of December 2009 the reserve fund level was built up from EUR 6,401,699 in November to EUR 6,494,668 and is now almost at its target level of EUR 6,500,000.

As a result of the above, Moody's has revised its assumption of the default probability of the SME debtors to an equivalent rating in the single B-range for the debtors operating in the real estate sector, and in the low Ba-range for the non-real-estate debtors. Additionally, loans in arrears are notched down depending on the length of time the loans have been in arrears, and performing loans not in building and real estate sector with relatively long seasoning are notched up depending on their actual seasoning.

At the same time Moody's estimated the remaining weighted average life of the portfolio equal to 4.4 years. As a consequence, these revised assumptions have translated into a cumulative mean default assumption of 7.5% of the current outstanding portfolio amount. When converting this number into a cumulative mean default rate of original portfolio balance, the revised expected cumulative default rate is 4.8% compared to an initial assumption of 2.5% at closing. Given the high granularity of the outstanding portfolio (effective number of borrowers is 1,292 as of December 2009), Moody's applied a normal inverse distribution to derive the probabilities of its default scenarios. The volatility was slightly reduced to 54% from 60% assumed at closing, taking into account the significant concentration in the construction & building sector. According to Moody's sector classification the portion of this sector in the outstanding pool balance as of December 2009 was 45%. Stochastic recoveries were modeled assuming a 65% mean recovery rate and a 20% standard deviation. This compares to an initial assumption at closing of 32.5% fixed recovery rate. This strong increase in the recovery rate is mainly due to the high percentage of mortgage securities (mainly residential) backing the securitised loans with low LTV and long seasoning of the loans. The constant prepayment rate (CPR) Moody's used in its cash flow model was decreased to 5% and aligned to the average CPR observed so far. This compares to 15% assumed at close. Moody's tested various sensitivities around these assumptions in order to determine its final view on the ratings.

In summary, Moody's concluded that the negative effects of the revised default and volatility assumptions could be offset by the increase in credit enhancement and the recovery rate expectations for the outstanding A(G), B, C and D notes. In particular the doubling of credit enhancement for the benefit of the class B notes more than offset the revised assumptions which resulted in an upgrade.

The class A(G) notes benefit from a guarantee from the Generalitat de Catalunya (A1) for interest and principal payments. Moody's has determined that the expected loss associated with class A(G) without giving benefit to the Generalitat de Catalunya guarantee is consistent with a Aaa rating.

Foncaixa Ftgencat 3, FTA is a securitisation fund, which purchased a pool of loans granted to Spanish SMEs and individuals originated by Caja de Ahorros y Pensiones de Barcelona ("La Caixa"). In the provisional pool as of November 2005 the portfolio consisted of 11,267 loans and 9,230, debtors. The loans were originated between 1988 and 2005, with a weighted average seasoning of 2.2 years and a weighted average remaining term of 13.8 years. As of December 2009 the outstanding portfolio counted 4,219 loans with 3,524 debtors. The weighted average seasoning was calculated at 7 years with a weighted average remaining term of 13.2 years. In terms of geographic concentration, the pool was and still is fully concentrated in Catalonia. At close the concentration in the building and real estate sector equaled to 40% of the original portfolio amount. As of December 2009, this percentage made up approximately 45% and the pool factor was 42%.

Moody's ratings address the expected loss posed to investors by the legal final maturity of the notes. Moody's ratings address only the credit risks associated with the transaction. Other non-credit risks have not been addressed, but may have a significant effect on yield to investors.

The principal methodologies used in rating this transaction were Moody's " Refining the ABS SME Approach: Moody's Probability of Default Assumptions in the rating analysis of granular Small and Mid-sized Enterprise portfolios in EMEA", March 2009 and available on www.moodys.com in the Rating Methodologies sub-directory under the Research & Ratings tab.
