ABCP : Where do we go from here? Sophie Berthelon, Moodys Investors Service Peter Eisenhardt, Bank of America Jonathan Curry, Barclays Global Investors Rob Koning, ABN Amro Whats happened? Since the middle of July, the ABCP market after reaching $1.5 trillion in global outstandings and representing almost half of the worlds CP markets has experienced unprecedented retrenchment and been a focus of the financial markets Triggered by the U.S. sub-prime mortgage market difficulties and knock on effects throughout credit markets, certain ABCP programs and structures came under stress Conservative short term investors concerned with capital preservation more than returns and cautious about potential investor withdrawals from their funds given negative and sometimes inaccurate press pulled away from ABCP Scrutiny of short term fund holdings of CDO CP traunches and ABS contributed to defensive investing 2 Uncertainty in ABCP has been part of a wider dislocation in credit and money markets Interbank spreads to underlying rates widened as banks became reluctant to lend Banks have been uncertain as to what demands on their balance sheets

might be and what exposures to bad credits might be at other banks It has been difficult to place CP in an environment where at times it has been difficult to price even one month LIBOR The chart below compares the front 3-month Eurodollar future with 3month LIBOR Normally, the futures contract trades at a discount (no positive carry) until it converges with LIBOR at maturity, but given defensive lending the reverse has been true Front 3m Euro$ future v 3m LIBOR 0.60 0.40 0.20 25/09/2007 25/07/2007 25/05/2007 25/03/2007 25/01/2007 25/11/2006 25/09/2006 25/07/2006 25/05/2006 25/03/2006 25/01/2006 25/11/2005 25/09/2005

-A ug On $bn 3 October, ABECP outstandings were $193bn (-35%) while US ABCP was $906bn (23%) Part of the reason that ABECP has dropped by a higher percentage than US ABCP is that European investors are less likely to buy short (1-7 day) paper that is now more prevalent ABECP 298 1200 1174 1135 1000 0% 1057 998 967 945 929 923 906 -5% 800 -10% $bn 600 -15%

Identifiable, highly likely investor losses are limited so far Money funds have not seen investor redemptions; on the contrary assets have increased with falling rates U.S. money fund assets hit an all-time high of $2.8 trillion Investors are beginning to re-engage ABCP and are differentiating between programs they are comfortable with and those that need further review Investors will confirm the structures they want to buy, work with issuers to re-calibrate others, and maybe reject a few altogether Traditional multi-sellers with full liquidity support from strong sponsor banks are now trading towards June levels 6 Programme mix might change in the future Moody's Rated ABCP Programs by type (global outstanding in US$ as of June 30, 2007) SIV LITE; 0,33% Other; 7,05% SIV; 7,13% Hybrid; 11,84% Multiseller; 44,88% Sec.

SIV LITE Source Moody's Program Index March 2006 and July 2007 8 Liquidity Liquidity backing will be important when investors assess ABCP programs going forward, as there must be means to repay paper if it cannot be rolled Investors will re-focus on the institution(s) providing liquidity and whether the size of the commitment is appropriate for these institution(s) confirming that there are no easy outs to providing liquidity extendible features by which the issuer can extend the maturity of the paper the $150bn+ extendible market that developed in the U.S. saw paper extend although investors had viewed this as never likely If program liquidity is less than 100%, repayment must also come from sale of assets and/or capital. On Market Value structures, investors will re-scrutinise asset Type Concentrations Valuations and program leverage and funding 9 Transparency ``I think there are some investors not doing the work and relying on ratings. If you're willing to do the work, it's there.'' - money fund investor

Some have suggested that insufficient information and lack of transparency in ABCP and conduit structures are the main elements in recent events affecting the market - this is not the case Portfolio managers and credit teams have access to information memorandums rating agency reports conduit-issued pool reports, which broadly describe current assets and verify compliance with program requirements Frequent and regular conferences are hosted by the industry and rating agencies, often at no cost to investors Issuers have always been keen to meet investors to answer questions 1 0 Transparency (cont.) However, transparency can always be improved Issuers, possible Some rating agencies, and dealers are keen to help in any way investors may conclude their approval of ABCP was too ratings- based the market will work to help these investors perform the necessary analysis Parties not previously focused on ABCP, such as investors in money funds, will be provided with information and education as required

1 1 ABCP has a purpose and a future! ABCP issuers benefit from capital efficiency regulatory relief diversified funding Structured Investment Vehicles (assets down from over $380bn to under $360bn) and securities arbitrage conduits are important buyers of ABS and other term product Investors benefit from wider product offering competitive returns credits with a defined purpose and strategy that can be analysed steady supply The global implementation of Basel II will be more important than ever 1 2
