Forward-Looking Statements

     This document contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The words “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “forecast,” “initiative,” “objective,” “plan,” “goal,” “project,” “outlook,” “priorities,” “target,” “intend,” “evaluate,” “pursue,” “commence,” “seek,” “may,” “would,” “could,” “should,” “believe,” “potential,” “continue,” or the negative of any of those words or similar expressions is intended to identify forward-looking statements. All statements contained in this presentation, other than statements of historical fact, including without limitation, statements about our plans, strategies, prospects and expectations regarding future events and our financial performance, are forward-looking statements that involve certain risks and uncertainties. While these statements represent our current judgment on what the future may hold, and we believe these judgments are reasonable, these statements are not guarantees of any events or financial results, and our actual results may differ materially. Important factors that could cause our actual results to be materially different from our expectations include, among others, the risk that CIT is unsuccessful in its efforts to complete the remaining stages of its business restructuring, the risk that CIT is delayed in completing its management changes, the risk that CIT is delayed in completing its transition to a bank-centric business model, and the risk that CIT continues to be subject to liquidity constraints and higher funding costs. Further, there is a risk that the valuations resulting from our fresh start accounting analysis, which are inherently uncertain and still subject to change, will differ significantly from our expectations, due to the complexity of the valuation process, the degree of judgment required, and the amount of work still remaining. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements contained in this presentation. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which the statements were made. 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, 2008, as updated by its Current Reports on Form 8-K dated October 1, 2009 and January 8, 2010, and its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2009. 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.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of applicable federal securities laws that are based upon our current expectations and assumptions concerning future events, which are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated. The words “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “forecast,” “initiative,” “objective,” “plan,” “goal,” “project,” “outlook,” “priorities,” “target,” “intend,” “evaluate,” “pursue,” “commence,” “seek,” “may,” “would,” “could,” “should,” “believe,” “potential,” “continue,” or the negative of any of those words or similar expressions is intended to identify forward-looking statements. All statements contained in this press release, other than statements of historical fact, including without limitation, statements about our plans, strategies, prospects and expectations regarding future events and our financial


performance, are forward-looking statements that involve certain risks and uncertainties. While these statements represent our current judgment on what the future may hold, and we believe these judgments are reasonable, these statements are not guarantees of any events or financial results, and our actual results may differ materially. Important factors that could cause our actual results to be materially different from our expectations include, among others, CIT may need to seek protection under the US Bankruptcy Code, even if the tender offer is consummated, the risk that the $3 billion loan facility does not provide the liquidity that CIT is seeking due to material negative changes to CIT’s liquidity from draw down of loans by customers, the risk that CIT is unsuccessful in its efforts to effectuate a comprehensive restructuring of its liabilities, in which case CIT may be forced to seek bankruptcy relief. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements contained in this press release. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which the statements were made. CIT undertakes no obligation to update publicly or otherwise revise any forward-looking statements, except where expressly required by law.

Many of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions are beyond our control, and may cause our actual results and performance to differ materially from our expectations. Important factors that could cause our actual results to be materially different from our expectations include, among others, the risk that our discussions with our principal regulators do not result in any additional regulatory action or that any action is not granted on a timely basis or on favorable terms and conditions for the company, the risk that our pending application for participation in the FDIC’s TLGP program is denied or even if granted in whole or in part is not sufficient to address the company’s liquidity concerns, the risk that any regulatory solution that does not involve access to the TLGP program does not provide the liquidity that the company is seeking, the risks that we experience material negative changes to our liquidity, whether in response to market speculation, press reports or otherwise, the risk that the regulatory actions and other measures being pursued do not have the desired effect on our liquidity position, the risk that the capital markets initiatives being pursued or considered by the company are not available. capital markets liquidity; risks of and/or actual economic slowdown, downturn or recession; industry cycles and trends; demographic trends; risks inherent in changes in market interest rates and quality spreads; funding opportunities and borrowing costs; conditions and/or changes in funding markets, including commercial paper, term debt and the asset-backed securitization markets; uncertainties associated with risk management, including credit, prepayment, asset/liability, interest rate and currency risks; adequacy of reserves for credit losses; risks associated with the value and recoverability of leased equipment and lease residual values; application of fair value accounting in volatile markets; changes in laws or regulations governing our business and operations; changes in competitive factors; future acquisitions and dispositions of businesses or asset portfolios; the risks associated with our being a bank holding company, including, but not limited to, whether our existing business activities are permissible activities.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of applicable federal securities laws, including the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, that are based upon our current expectations and assumptions concerning future events, which are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated. The words “plan,” “will,” “expect,” “may,” “would,” or the negative of any of those words or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. All statements contained in this press release, other than statements of historical fact, including without limitation, statements about our plans, strategies, prospects and expectations regarding the Notes Exchange or related future events, are forward-looking statements that involve certain risks and uncertainties. While these statements represent our current judgment on what the future may

hold, and we believe these judgments are reasonable, these statements are not guarantees of any events or financial results, and our actual results may differ materially due to numerous important factors that are described in Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2007, as updated by our subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and our Current Reports on Form 8-K. Many of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions are beyond our control, and may cause our actual results to differ materially from our expectations. Important factors that could cause our actual results to be materially different from our expectations include, among others, final results of the Notes Exchange being different than current expectations; the ability to satisfy the conditions to the Notes Exchange; and the success, or lack thereof, of the transactions and other initiatives described in this press release, including our application to the Federal Reserve to become a bank holding company and a financial holding company and the submission of our application to the U.S. Treasury to participate in the Capital Purchase Program by selling preferred stock to the U.S. Treasury. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements contained in this press release. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which the statements were made. CIT undertakes no obligation to update publicly or otherwise revise any forward-looking statements, except where expressly required by law.

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 release that are not clearly historical in nature are forward-looking, and the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “estimate,” “plan,” “target,” and similar expressions are generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. The transactions, plans and arrangements related to the Company’s liquidity plan and described in this release are subject to a number of uncertainties, and there can be no assurances that any or all such transactions, plans or arrangements will be undertaken, or, if undertaken, completed, or if completed, will be completed on the agreed terms. 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.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements contained in this document are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements contained herein that are not clearly historical in nature are forward-looking and the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “estimate,” “plan,” “target” and similar expressions are generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statements contained herein, in press releases, written statements or other documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission or in communications and discussions with investors and analysts in the normal course of business through meetings, webcasts, phone calls and conference calls, concerning our operations, economic performance and financial condition are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and contingencies. Forward-looking statements are included, for example, in the discussions about:

  our liquidity risk management,

  our credit risk management,

  our asset/liability risk management,

  our funding, borrowing costs and net finance revenue,

  our capital, leverage and credit ratings,

  our operational risks, including success of build-out initiatives and acquisitions,

  legal risks,

  our growth rates,

  our commitments to extend credit or purchase equipment, and

  how we may be affected by legal proceedings.

All forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, which may cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from anticipated results, performance or achievements. Also, forward-looking statements are based upon management’s estimates of fair values and of future costs, using currently available information. Therefore, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in those statements. Factors, in addition to those disclosed in “Risk Factors”, that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to:

  risks of economic slowdown, downturn or recession,

  industry cycles and trends,

  demographic trends,

  risks inherent in changes in market interest rates and quality spreads,

  funding opportunities and borrowing costs,

  changes in funding markets, including commercial paper, term debt and the asset-backed securitization markets,

  uncertainties associated with risk management, including credit, prepayment, asset/liability, interest rate and currency risks,

  adequacy of reserves for credit losses,

  risks associated with the value and recoverability of leased equipment and lease residual values,

  changes in laws or regulations governing our business and operations,

  changes in competitive factors, and

  future acquisitions and dispositions of businesses or asset portfolios.
