Derivatives Portfolio Report Metropolitan Transportation Authority Patrick McCoy, Director of Finance November 26, 2012
MTAs Derivatives Program Allows the Use of Interest Rate Swaps and Options and Fuel Hedges Synthetic Fixed Rate Debt: To achieve a lower net cost of borrowing. (Floating to Fixed Rate Swaps) Interest Rate Hedges: To protect against the potential of rising interest rates by capping exposure. Fuel Hedges: To establish more certainty and stability in budgeting the future price of commodities used by MTA. Speculative Interest Rate and/or Fuel Hedges are not permitted. 1
Interest Rate Swaps
3 Notes: 1 As of September 30, 2012 and excludes State Service Contract Bonds. Traditional Fixed $26.4 Bn 84.1% Unhedged Variable $2.3 Bn 7.4% Hedged Variable: Synthetic Fixed Rate $2.7 Bn 8.5% Synthetic Fixed Rate Debt Exposure is Less than 10% of Overall Debt 1
Synthetic Fixed Rate Debt is Cost Effective Synthetic fixed rate debt costs less than non-callable traditional fixed rate debt at the time of issuance. On an annual basis, MTA swap portfolio savings are estimated at approximately $19.6 million, relative to the cost of fixed rate bonds, at the time of issuance. The weighted average cost of the synthetic fixed portfolio is 3.77%. vs. 4.40% for traditional fixed-rate bonds - including recent 2012 refinancings. Synthetic fixed rate exposure continues to be manageable at 8.5% of total outstanding debt. Mark-to-Market values do not impact capital or operating budgeting. 4

In 2012 MTA Reduced Exposure to a Recently Downgraded Counterparty Counterparty Risk Mitigation Strategy –Transaction 1 - As a result of a downgrade of the ratings relevant to Citigroup Financial Products Inc. (CFP) to Baa2 by Moodys, TBTA competitively bid a termination of the two affected TBTA general revenue transactions. $88.50 million 5.777% synthetic fixed swap 2 year remaining average life. $88.60 million 5.777% synthetic fixed swap 2 year remaining average life. Total termination payment: $19,393,500 plus accrued interest -- 95% of existing Mark-to-Market. Total expected PV debt service savings of 8.50%. Underlying bonds remain in a variable rate mode. 6
In 2012 MTA Reduced Exposure to a Recently Downgraded Counterparty Counterparty Risk Mitigation Strategy (cont.) –Transaction 2 - As a result of the favorable economics of transaction 1, TBTA negotiated the termination of the remaining two TBTA subordinate transactions with CFP. $40.40 million 6.07% synthetic fixed swap 3 year remaining average life. $89.85 million 6.07% synthetic fixed swap 3 year remaining average life. Total termination payment: $22,318,000 plus accrued interest -- 89% of existing Mark-to-Market. Total expected PV debt service savings of 7.75%. Underlying bonds remain in a variable rate mode. Realized Objective MTA exposure to Citigroup Financial Products has been eliminated. Increased LOC capacity due to reducing Citigroup exposure to MTA. 7

Fuel Hedging Program
MTA Hedges a Portion of its Fuel Costs to Provide Budgetary Certainty in its Fuel Expense Category MTA is currently hedging approximately 50% of its annual ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) expenditures pursuant to Prior Board Authorization. Current transactions are structured as laddered 18-month strips that are cash settled monthly to provide current and near term budget certainty. Freed up capacity is recycled on a monthly basis. Hedges are procured through a competitive bidding process. In July 2012 MTA removed Bank of America/Merrill Lynch (BAML) from its approved list of counterparties and is actively working to approve replacements. Staff is not seeking to terminate any existing hedges with BAML as counterparty exposure is manageable. Deutsche Bank, and Goldman Sachs & Co. (via J. Aron & Company) remain as approved Counterparties. 10
MTA will Expand its Fuel Hedging Program to Increase 2 Year Budgetary Certainty On September , MTA Board approved an increase of $100 million in the fuel hedge program bringing the total size to $200 million. MTA will begin to extend the duration of hedging fuel expenses expected to occur over the next 24 months. Targeted hedge amounts will equal 50% of gallons projected to be purchased over the next 12 months with declining hedge amounts over the remaining period. Target modifications may occur based on market conditions. On a monthly rolling basis freed up capacity will be allocated over the next 24 months and will provide for a 50% hedge of the next 12 months on an ongoing basis. The increased capacity will be layered in over the next few quarters. 11
