Form 8-K for ASSURED GUARANTY LTD


6-May-2013

Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On May 6, 2013, Assured Guaranty Ltd. issued a press release announcing that it and its subsidiaries Assured Guaranty Municipal Corp. ("AGM") and Assured Guaranty Corp. ("AGC" and, together with AGM and Assured Guaranty Ltd., "Assured Guaranty") have entered into an agreement with UBS Real Estate Securities Inc. and certain other affiliates ("UBS") and a third party that resolves Assured Guaranty's claims related to specified residential mortgage-backed securities ("RMBS") transactions that were issued, underwritten or sponsored by UBS and insured by AGM or AGC under financial guaranty insurance policies.

AGM will receive an initial cash payment of approximately $358.5 million within one business day of signing the agreement, which partially reimburses AGM for past losses on the MASTR Adjustable Rate Mortgages Trust 2006-OA2, MASTR Adjustable Rate Mortgages Trust 2007-1 and MASTR Adjustable Rate Mortgages Trust 2007-3 first lien RMBS transactions. Additionally, under the agreement, UBS has agreed to reimburse AGM for 85% of all future losses on these transactions, through a collateralized loss-sharing reinsurance arrangement that is expected to be in place by the third quarter of 2013. AGM had filed a lawsuit against UBS in New York Federal court in respect of these transactions, alleging breaches of representations and warranties in respect of the underlying loans in the transactions. The agreement resolves all RMBS claims that Assured Guaranty has asserted against UBS in connection with these transactions, and also resolves the lawsuit AGM filed against UBS Securities LLC, as underwriter of the IndyMac IMSC Mortgage Loan Trust, Series 2007-HOA-1a first lien transaction, as well as potential Assured Guaranty claims on three other RMBS transactions.

The press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
