KEY RATING DRIVERS
On Feb. 12, 2013, a liquidation notice declaring the mandatory redemption of all outstanding notes was issued for ZAIS V. As a result, the remaining underlying portfolio assets have been sold and liquidation proceeds of approximately $152 million were distributed on Feb. 22, 2013. Propceeds were sufficient to pay classes A-1, A-2, B-1, and B-2 in full.
ZAIS V was a static cash flow SF CDO that closed on Dec. 19, 2002 and was monitored by ZAIS GROUP, LLC. The underlying portfolio consisted of corporate collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) and structured finance CDOs. The transaction entered an EOD on April 27, 2009, when the deal failed to maintain a class A overcollateralization ratio higher than 100%.
