Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

     In June 2008, management contractually agreed to sell the Company’s home lending business, including the home mortgage and manufactured housing portfolios and the related servicing operations. The sale of assets and the assignment of liabilities were completed in early July with the receipt of $1.7 billion of the total $1.8 billion in cash consideration. The final amounts are expected to be received upon transfer of servicing, projected to occur by February 2009. In conjunction with the sales, transition services will be provided to the purchaser on a revenue neutral basis (at our approximate cost). CIT is not required to repurchase any of the home lending or manufactured housing receivables contemplated in these sales. Expected costs related to the sale have been estimated by management based on currently available information and included in the loss on disposal.

     Exhibit 99.1 sets forth unaudited pro forma financial statements reflecting the sale of the house lending business. Additional details regarding the sale are contained in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed July 1, 2008 and the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed August 11, 2008.

Item 8.01 Other Events

Discontinued Operations

     As required by Statement of Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets” (SFAS 144), the results for the Company’s home lending business were reported as a discontinued operation for all periods presented in the June 2008 unaudited Statements of Income and Cash Flows that were included in the Company’s June 2008 Form 10-Q. The assets and liabilities of the business were presented in the Consolidated Balance Sheets included in the June 2008 Form 10-Q as Assets of discontinued operation and Liabilities of discontinued operation as of June 30, 2008 and December 31, 2007.

Forward-Looking Statement

     This document contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All forward-looking statements (including statements regarding future financial and operating results) involve risks, uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond CIT’s control, which may cause actual results, performance, or achievements to differ materially from anticipated results, performance, or achievements. All statements contained in this document that are not clearly historical in nature are forward-looking, and the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “estimate,” “plan,” and similar expressions are generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. Economic, business, funding market, competitive and/or regulatory factors, among others, affecting CIT’s businesses are examples of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. More detailed information about these factors are described in CIT’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2007 and its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2008. CIT is under no obligation to (and expressly disclaims any such obligation to) update or alter its forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
