Our ratings reflect our assessment of the transaction's payment structure,cash flow mechanics, and the results of our cash flow analysis to assesswhether the rated notes would be repaid under stress test scenarios.Subordination and the non-liquidity reserve fund provide credit enhancement to

the notes. Taking these factors into account, we consider the available creditenhancement for the rated notes to be commensurate with the preliminaryratings that we have assigned.
