Fitch does not rate the $46,298,194 Class G.

Since the published presale, the capital structure of the transaction was revised by the issuer reflective of the classes above. The principal balance of the portfolio is unchanged; however, classes A-FX and A-FL were eliminated from the transaction and as a result Fitch's prior ratings for these classes have been withdrawn. Additionally, the class X-B was modified to reference the notional amount of the sum of the principal balances of the classes B and C certificates. As a result, Fitch has revised the rating of Class X-B to 'A-sf' which is reflective of Fitch's rating of the class C certificates.

A detailed description of Fitch's rating analysis including key rating drivers, stresses, rating sensitivity, analysis, model, criteria application and data adequacy is available in Fitch's New Issue Report, available at www.fitchratings.com.
