The order calls, among other things, for the FGC to make a variety of changes in its sub-prime residential loan origination business and also calls for certain changes in its commercial real estate lending business.

Item 1122 of Regulation AB. Compliance with Applicable Servicing Criteria.
The assessment of compliance for Wilshire Credit Corporation (“Wilshire”) has disclosed the following material noncompliance with servicing criterion 1122(d)(4)(iv), applicable to Wilshire during the year ended December 31, 2006. On one of the forty-five loan payoffs selected for testing, Wilshire calculated the prepayment charge in accordance with the related mortgage note, but transposed the numbers when entering the charge into its system, resulting in an overcharge to the borrower. Such assessment further states that this error has been corrected and the overcharge has been refunded to the borrower.
