Form 8-K for AMBAC FINANCIAL GROUP INC


17-May-2013

Regulation FD Disclosure


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

The Wisconsin Commissioner of Insurance, acting in his capacity as the rehabilitator (the "Rehabilitator") of the Segregated Account (the "Segregated Account") of Ambac Assurance Corporation ("Ambac Assurance"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Ambac Financial Group, Inc. (the "Company"), has confirmed that he is considering seeking authorization from the Rehabilitation Court (Circuit Court for Dane County, Wisconsin) for the Segregated Account to make cash payments in excess of 25% of permitted claims ("Supplemental Payments") on certain financial guaranty policies (the "Policies") in order to maximize reimbursements to the Segregated Account and increase claims-paying resources for the benefit of all Segregated Account policyholders.

The Rehabilitator has indicated that he initially anticipates seeking the authority to make Supplemental Payments on some or all of 14 Policies which relate to the following residential mortgage securities transactions:

Harborview Mortgage Loan Trust 2006-7

Harborview Mortgage Loan Trust 2006-9

Harborview Mortgage Loan Trust 2006-14

Harborview Mortgage Loan Trust 2007-2

IMPAC Secured Assets Corp. 2005-2

IMPAC Secured Assets Corp. 2006-3

IMPAC Secured Assets Corp. 2007-2

IMPAC Secured Assets Corp 2007-3

IndyMac INDX Mortgage Loan Trust 2005-AR18

IndyMac INDX Mortgage Loan Trust 2006-AR2

Lehman XS Trust Mortgage 2005-7N

Lehman XS Trust Mortgage 2005-9N

Lehman XS Trust Mortgage 2006-2N

Lehman XS Trust Mortgage 2007-7N

The Rehabilitator has given no guidance as to how he anticipates calculating the level of Supplemental Payments to be made on any Policy, although Ambac Assurance believes that the Rehabilitator will seek approval to pay such cash payment percentage on each Policy as is necessary in the Rehabilitator's sole and absolute discretion to prevent amounts that would have been available to reimburse Ambac Assurance (had it paid under the relevant Policy in full) being paid to uninsured holders of securities.

As of today's date, the Rehabilitator has not filed a motion with the Rehabilitation Court seeking approval for the payment of Supplemental Payments. Accordingly, there can be no assurances that the Rehabilitator will seek approval for any Supplemental Payments, that, if a motion is filed, the Rehabilitation Court will approve the Rehabilitator's motion to make Supplemental Payments, or that, even if approved by the Rehabilitation Court, the Rehabilitator will make any Supplemental Payments.

Further details relating to the Supplemental Payments and the rehabilitation proceedings of the Segregated Account generally can be found in the Company's Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2013, filed on May 15, 2013, and on the website maintained by the Rehabilitator in connection with the Segregated Account's rehabilitation proceeding: www.ambacpolicyholders.com.
