Brief Description of Nature and Purpose of the Facility: This is a general guarantee on the interest of Secured Notes issued by the Private Export Funding Corporation (PEFCO), in accordance with both the Guarantee and Credit Agreement, as Amended, and the Guarantee Agreement between EXIM and PEFCO. The purpose of the guarantee of interest on the Secured Notes is to facilitate private funding from the U.S. capital markets for EXIM-guaranteed export finance transactions.

Total Amount of Guarantees: The exact number is not determinable due to market-determined pricing and uncertainty as to the amount and timing of Secured Notes to be issued; however, it could potentially be in excess of $100 million.

Reasons for the Facility and Methods of Operation: The general guarantee is set up to guarantee interest on PEFCO's issuance of Secured Notes. The principal amount of the Secured Notes is secured by a collateral pool of U.S. government-risk debt and securities, including EXIM-guaranteed loans. The proceeds from the Secured Notes are used to fund additional EXIM-guaranteed loans and provide a liquid secondary market for EXIM-guaranteed loans.

Party Requesting Guarantee: Private Export Funding Corporation (PEFCO)
