RATINGS RATIONALE

According to Moody's, the rating actions taken on the notes are primarily a result of deleveraging of the senior notes and an increase in the transaction's overcollateralization ratios since October 2012. Moody's notes that the Class A-1A Notes and Class A-1B Notes have been paid down by approximately 42.7% or $108.4 million since October 2012. Based on the latest trustee report dated September 10, 2013, the Class A, Class B, Class C and Class D overcollateralization ratios are reported at 137.9%, 124.6%, 113.4%, and 111.1%, respectively, versus October 2012 levels of 123.7%, 116.3%, 109.6%, and 108.1%, respectively.

Notwithstanding benefits of the deleveraging, Moody's notes that the credit quality of the underlying portfolio has deteriorated since October 2012. Based on the September 2013 trustee report, the weighted average rating factor is currently 2507 compared to 2356 in October 2012.

Moody's notes that the key model inputs used by Moody's in its analysis, such as par, weighted average rating factor, diversity score, and weighted average recovery rate, are based on its published methodology and may be different from the trustee's reported numbers. In its base case, Moody's analyzed the underlying collateral pool to have a performing par and principal proceeds balance of $216.6 million, defaulted par of $3.9 million, a weighted average default probability of 19.5% (implying a WARF of 2711), a weighted average recovery rate upon default of 51.7%, and a diversity score of 45. The default and recovery properties of the collateral pool are incorporated in cash flow model analysis where they are subject to stresses as a function of the target rating of each CLO liability being reviewed. The default probability is derived from the credit quality of the collateral pool and Moody's expectation of the remaining life of the collateral pool. The average recovery rate to be realized on future defaults is based primarily on the seniority of the assets in the collateral pool. In each case, historical and market performance trends and collateral manager latitude for trading the collateral are also factors.

AIMCO CLO, Series 2005-A, issued in September 2005, is a collateralized loan obligation backed primarily by a portfolio of senior secured loans.

The principal methodology used in this rating was "Moody's Global Approach to Rating Collateralized Loan Obligations" published in May 2013. Please see the Credit Policy page on www.moodys.com for a copy of this methodology.

Moody's modeled the transaction using a cash flow model based on the Binomial Expansion Technique, as described in Section 2.3 of the "Moody's Global Approach to Rating Collateralized Loan Obligations" rating methodology published in May 2013.

In addition to the base case analysis described above, Moody's also performed sensitivity analyses to test the impact on all rated notes of various default probabilities. Below is a summary of the impact of different default probabilities (expressed in terms of WARF levels) on all rated notes (shown in terms of the number of notches' difference versus the current model output, where a positive difference corresponds to lower expected loss), assuming that all other factors are held equal:

Moody's Adjusted WARF -- 20% (2169)

Class A-1A: 0

Class A-2B: 0

Class A-2: 0

Class B: +3

Class C: +2

Class D: +2

Moody's Adjusted WARF + 20% (3254)

Class A-1A: 0

Class A-2B: 0

Class A-2: -1

Class B: -1

Class C: -1

Class D: 0

Moody's notes that this transaction is subject to a high level of macroeconomic uncertainty, as evidenced by 1) uncertainties of credit conditions in the general economy and 2) the large concentration of upcoming speculative-grade debt maturities which may create challenges for issuers to refinance. CLO notes' performance may also be impacted by 1) the manager's investment strategy and behavior and 2) divergence in legal interpretation of CLO documentation by different transactional parties due to embedded ambiguities.

Sources of additional performance uncertainties are described below:

1) Deleveraging: The main source of uncertainty in this transaction is whether deleveraging from unscheduled principal proceeds will continue and at what pace. Deleveraging may accelerate due to high prepayment levels in the loan market and/or collateral sales by the manager, which may have significant impact on the notes' ratings.

2) Recovery of defaulted assets: Market value fluctuations in defaulted assets reported by the trustee and those assumed to be defaulted by Moody's may create volatility in the deal's overcollateralization levels. Further, the timing of recoveries and the manager's decision to work out versus sell defaulted assets create additional uncertainties. Moody's analyzed defaulted recoveries assuming the lower of the market price and the recovery rate in order to account for potential volatility in market prices.

3) Long-dated assets: The presence of assets that mature beyond the CLO's legal maturity date exposes the deal to liquidation risk on those assets. Moody's assumes an asset's terminal value upon liquidation at maturity to be equal to the lower of an assumed liquidation value (depending on the extent to which the asset's maturity lags that of the liabilities) and the asset's current market value.
