National Public Finance Guarantee Corporation Comments On Its Exposure To The City Of Stockton, California

In response to investor inquiries, National Public Finance Guarantee Corporation (National), an indirect subsidiary of MBIA Inc. (NYSE: MBI), today confirmed that it has approximately $224 million of insured exposure to the City of Stockton, California, $89 million of which is backed by the City’s general fund.

“Bonds issued by the City of Stockton, California and insured by National are fully backed by National’s financial strength and claims-paying resources. In the event that the City should fail to make a required debt service payment for any reason bondholders who own National-insured bonds will receive their scheduled interest and principal payments on time and in full,” said National’s Chief Risk Officer Adam Bergonzi. “We will continue to monitor developments closely as the City attempts to resolve its fiscal crisis.”

The following is a summary of National’s insured exposure to various bonds issued by the City of Stockton:

       
Issues     Exposure (Gross)

Redevelopment Agency of the City of Stockton Revenue Bonds, Series 2004 (Stockton Events Center – Arena Project)

    $45,590,000

Stockton Public Financing Authority Lease Revenue Bonds Series 2004 (Parking and Capital Projects)

    $31,640,000

Stockton Public Financing Authority 2006 Lease Revenue Refunding Bonds, Series A (Municipal Building)

    $12,085,000

All other exposures benefit from discrete dedicated revenue streams outside of the general fund.
