Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
The Board of Directors
The Corporate Trust Services division of Wells Fargo Bank, National Association:
We have examined the Corporate Trust Services division of Wells Fargo Bank, National Associations (the Company) compliance with the servicing criteria set forth in Item 1122(d) of the Securities and Exchange Commissions Regulation AB for publicly-issued (i.e., transaction-level reporting initially required under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) and certain privately-issued (i.e., for which transaction-level reporting is required pursuant to contractual obligation) residential mortgage-backed securities, commercial mortgage-backed securities and other asset-backed securities for which the Company provides master servicing, trustee, securities administration and/or paying agent services, excluding any such securities issued by an agency or instrumentality of the U.S. government (other than the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) or any government sponsored entity, and further excluding the transactions issued prior to 2006 for which Wells Fargo outsources all material servicing activities (as defined by Regulation AB) (the Platform), except for servicing criteria 1122(d)(4)(ii), 1122(d)(4)(iv), 1122(d)(4)(v), 1122(d)(4)(viii), 1122(d)(4)(ix), 1122(d)(4)(x), 1122(d)(4)(xi), 1122(d)(4)(xii) and 1122(d)(4)(xiii), which the Company has determined are not applicable to the activities it performs with respect to the Platform, as of and for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011. Management is responsible for the Companys compliance with the servicing criteria. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Companys compliance based on our examination.
Our examination was conducted in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) and, accordingly, included examining, on a test basis, evidence about the Companys compliance with the servicing criteria specified above and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. Our examination included testing selected asset-backed transactions and securities that comprise the Platform, testing selected servicing activities related to the Platform, and determining whether the Company processed those selected transactions and performed those selected activities in compliance with the servicing criteria. Furthermore, our procedures were limited to the selected transactions and servicing activities performed by the Company during the period covered by this report. Our procedures were not designed to determine whether errors may have occurred either prior to or subsequent to our tests that may have affected the balances or amounts calculated or reported by the Company during the period covered by this report for the selected transactions or any other transactions. We believe that our examination provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. Our examination does not provide a legal determination on the Companys compliance with the servicing criteria.
As described in managements Assessment of Compliance with the Applicable Servicing Criteria, for servicing criterion 1122(d)(4)(i), the Company has engaged a vendor to perform the activities required by this servicing criterion. The Company has determined that this vendor is not considered a servicer as defined in Item 1101(j) of Regulation AB, and the Company has elected to take responsibility for assessing compliance with the servicing criterion applicable to this vendor as permitted by Interpretation 17.06 of the SEC Division of Corporation Finance Manual of Publicly Available Telephone Interpretations (Interpretation 17.06). As permitted by Interpretation 17.06, the Company has asserted that it has policies and procedures in place designed to provide reasonable assurance that the vendors activities comply in all material respects with the servicing criterion applicable to the vendor. The Company is solely responsible for determining that it meets the SEC requirements to apply Interpretation 17.06 for the vendor and related criterion as described in managements Assessment of Compliance with the Applicable Servicing Criteria, and we performed no procedures with respect to the Companys eligibility to apply Interpretation 17.06.
Our examination disclosed the following material noncompliance with servicing criteria 1122(d)(3)(i)(B) and 1122(d)(3)(ii), as applicable to the Company during the twelve months ended December 31, 2011:
In our opinion, except for the material noncompliance described above, the Company complied with the aforementioned servicing criteria, including servicing criterion 1122(d)(4)(i) for which compliance is determined based on Interpretation 17.06 as described above, as of and for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, in all material respects.
We do not express an opinion or any form of assurance on Managements Discussion on Material Instances of Noncompliance by the Company included in Schedule B of managements Assessment of Compliance with the Applicable Servicing Criteria.
