Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
The Board of Directors
We have examined managements assertion, included in the accompanying Managements Assertion of Compliance, that the Agency and Trust division of Citibank, N.A. (or Company) complied 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) automobile loan or lease-backed securities, equipment loan-backed securities and student loan-backed securities issued on or after January 1, 2006 for which the Company provides trustee and paying agent services (the Platform), except for servicing criteria 1122(d)(1)(i)-1122(d)(1)(iv), 1122(d)(2)(i), 1122(d)(2)(iii), 1122(d)(2)(vi)-1122(d)(2)(vii), 1122(d)(3)(i) and 1122(d)(4)(i)-1122(d)(4)(xv), 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 managements assertion about 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.
In our opinion, managements assessment that the Company complied with the aforementioned servicing criteria as of and for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 is fairly stated, in all material respects.
