GPA.PR.A Announcement Regarding CIT Credit Event

Global Credit Pref Corp has announced:

that it received a credit event notice today from The Toronto-Dominion Bank with respect to CIT Group Inc. as a result of that entity filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the Southern District of New York.

The return on the credit linked note is linked to the number of defaults experienced over its term among the reference entities in the CLN Portfolio. The credit linked note has been structured so that it is unaffected by the first net losses on the CLN Portfolio up to 5.12% of the initial value of the CLN Portfolio (initially representing defaults by 11 reference entities in a CLN Portfolio comprised of 129 reference entities). The net loss on a reference entity that defaults is calculated as the percentage exposure in the CLN Portfolio to such reference entity reduced by a 40% fixed recovery rate. Following the credit event, the credit linked note will be able to withstand approximately 4 further credit events in the CLN Portfolio.

Global Credit Pref Corp.’s capacity to return $25.00 per preferred share on the scheduled redemption date of September 30, 2015 and the payment of quarterly fixed cumulative preferential distributions of $0.3281 per preferred share (a 5.25% yield on the original subscription price of $25.00 per preferred share) will not be affected by this credit event.

The preferred shares are listed for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol GPA.PR.A.
