Form 8-K for CIT GROUP INC


21-Nov-2012

Other Events


Item 8.01 Other Events.

In mid-November, 2012, CIT sold at a gain to carrying value approximately $546 million in student loans that were in held for sale as of September 30, 2012. Most of student loans served as collateral for approximately $514 million in asset-backed securities ("ABS") funded through CIT's Goldman Sachs total return swap facilities (the "TRS") and proceeds from the sale of these student loans were used to redeem the ABS on November 19, 2012 at par. The ABS redemption will decrease fourth quarter 2012 interest expense by approximately $6 million as a $40 million increase in interest expense from the acceleration of fresh start accounting ("FSA") discount will be more than offset by $46 million in reimbursement of original issue discount ("OID") related to the TRS. The redemption will also generate other income of up to $35 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 due to acceleration of the counterparty receivable accretion.

On November 14, 2012, CIT delivered notice to redeem on November 27, 2012 the remaining balance of approximately $481 million in principal amount of asset-backed securities issued by Education Funding Capital Trust III, a student lending securitization entity, at par. Substantially all of the student loans underlying this securitization are expected to be refinanced by CIT through the TRS during the fourth quarter of 2012. This redemption will increase fourth quarter 2012 interest expense by up to $82 million due to the acceleration of FSA discount amortization.

On November 13, 2012, CIT delivered notice to redeem on December 15, 2012 approximately $18 million in principal amount of senior debt securities issued by CIT under its pre-reorganization InterNotes retail note program at par. The debt securities subject to this redemption were among those debt securities that did not elect treatment under CIT's Chapter 11 plan of reorganization. As a result, these debt securities were reinstated upon confirmation of such plan. This redemption will increase fourth quarter 2012 interest expense by up to $8 million due to the acceleration of FSA discount amortization.

These actions in the aggregate are expected to increase fourth quarter 2012 interest expense by up to $85 million and to increase other income by up to $35 million due to FSA- and OID-related items. The final amount of FSA acceleration will not be known until after the redemptions have occurred.
