23 Evolution of Recent Market Events The credit situation began with declining performance of RMBS and CDOs backed by U.S. subprime residential mortgages The contagion effects of the subprime crisis soon spread to other assets classes, institutions and geographic regions September 2008 marked the beginning of a particularly turbulent period

24 In response, governments around the world have taken actions to shore up the debt capital markets and support the global financial services industry The global financial markets continue to experience an unprecedented level of stress and volatility Illiquidity, price volatility and widening spreads across asset classes are impacting both short-and long-term credit markets Evolution of Recent Market Events

25 Impact on Fitch Key market dynamics impact Fitch in several ways: Constrained debt market activity Evolving credit fundamentals Change in the global regulatory environment

26 Global Debt Issuance Calendar 2008 saw global debt issuance volume significantly decrease For the first 9 months of calendar 2008, debt issuance totaled $3.5 trillion, a 36% decline from the same period last year and the slowest 9 month period since 2002 3Q08, down 57% over the prior quarter, was the slowest quarter for debt issuance since 2000 Source: Thomson Reuters

27 Debt Issuance: Structured Finance Global structured finance issuance volume totaled $450 billion in calendar 3Q08 YTD Issuance volume through 3Q08 represents an 80% drop in issuance compared to the same period in 2007 Securitizations year-to-date comprise 13% of total global debt issuance, down from 40% from the same period last year Source: Thomson Reuters

28 Debt Issuance: Structured Finance The US structured finance market saw its lowest volumes in 3Q08 since 1995 Year over year, 3Q08 YTD US issuance declined across all asset classes compared to 3Q07 YTD Issuance volumes in the EMEA structured finance market were also impacted 3Q08 YTD issuance down 90% from the same period last year Sources: Thomson Reuters, JPMorgan, Dealogic, Goldman Sachs

29 Debt Issuance: Corporate Finance Investment Grade Source: Thomson Reuters, Dealogic, Goldman Sachs Global Investment Grade Bond Issuance 3Q08 YTD investment grade corporate debt issuance declined 19% year-over-year 3Q08 saw the worst quarter since 2003 Financial institutions have been particularly impacted In the US, financial institutions issuance fell 37% in 3Q08 YTD relative to the prior year Recent government guarantees of bank debt issuance facilitating some issuance A tight credit market and a slowing global economy have also impacted non-financial debt issuance as the cost of debt financing has risen

30 Debt Issuance: Corporate Finance High Yield and Leverage Loans The events of the past several months have added further stress to an already weak speculative grade market In 3Q08 YTD, Europe saw no high yield bond issuance while US high yield bond issuance was down 44% versus 3Q07 YTD US and European leveraged loan issuance volume declined 57% and 69%, respectively, in calendar 3Q08 YTD as compared with the same period last year US High Yield and Loan Volumes ($B) Sources: Fitch Ratings, European High Yield Association European High Yield and Loan Volumes (€B)

31 Ratings Activity: Structured Finance During 2008, credit rating downgrades exceeded rating upgrades, a reflection of the level of deterioration in structured finance The areas most impacted by downgrades include: US RMBS, primarily the 2005-2007 subprime and Alt-A vintages US and European CDOs, due to poor performance of underlying collateral European CMBS and RMBS, although on a smaller scale, resulting from deteriorating collateral Downgrades impacting mostly junior tranches

32 Ratings Activity: European Structured Finance As demonstrated by rating activity in EMEA, downgrades have exceeded upgrades in recent quarters CDOs most heavily impacted

33 Ratings Activity: Financial Institutions Credit quality among financial institutions shifted in 2008 Rating actions increased as the crisis intensified in Q3 However, many financial institutions have benefited from government intervention Financial institutions generally remain highly rated- normally in the ‘AA’ or ‘A’ categories

34 Ratings Activity: Non-Financial Corporates Ratings Activity: Non-Financial Corporates A weakening global economy and instability in the capital markets has also affected non-financial corporate issuers Although there was an increasing number of downgrades in 2008, rating activity was more balanced than in structured finance and financial institutions

35 Fitch Credit Initiatives As market conditions unfolded, Fitch has focused on ensuring the quality and appropriateness of its credit analytics Fitch has also been keenly focused on finding the right balance in our ratings Examples of recent credit initiatives: Rating outlooks for U.S. Structured Finance On-site reviews of residential loan servicers and originators Projected loss analysis for structured finance CDOs Updated criteria for CDOs exposed to corporate debt and structured finance Updated criteria for bank ratings Proposed changes to municipal ratings scale (will reassess in 1Q09)

36 Regulatory Environment – US In response to evolving market conditions, various regulatory bodies have undertaken assessments of the broader financial markets and the specific roles and policies of rating agencies Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Regulatory oversight via the 2006 Credit Rating Agency Reform Act Ongoing assessment of the US ratings industry in 2007 and 2008 Published initial proposals in June 2008; final rules set for December 3 US Congress Several hearings on various markets and industries as a result of market conditions October 2008 hearing on the role of credit rating agencies Additional hearings likely in 2009 Broad-based reassessment of US financial regulatory regime possible

37 Regulatory Environment – EU International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) Published a final report containing amendments to its Code of Conduct Fundamentals for Rating Agencies in April 2008 European Commission On November 12, the EC released its proposal outlining new regulatory requirements for rating agencies across the European Union Proposed regulation to be approved by EU Parliament and Council G-20 Summit November 15/16 discussion held in Washington focused on market reforms and financial stability

43 Expense Management Fitch continues to focus on managing expenses Headcount-related costs are the largest component of controllable expenses Headcount declined 12% in fiscal 2008 due to natural attrition and planned staff reductions Variable compensation expenses, bonus accruals, and incentive compensation charges have been reduced Careful expense management, balanced with focused investments in areas of continued growth, will provide Fitch with a stable platform to move forward Note: Excludes Korea Ratings. For years 2002-2005, as of Dec 31. For year 2006-2008, as of Sept 30.

44 ConclusionConclusion The entire organization has rallied around the urgency of the credit challenges, aiming to be timely and transparent with our research and ratings The company is striving for balance and perspective while being Responsive to the realities of the market Focused on the quality of our analytical work Transparent in our dealings with key constituencies Disciplined in managing the business Given continued stress in the financial markets and lack of visibility into future debt market activity, we are not offering a revenue outlook for fiscal 2009
