Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
 
To the Board of Directors and the Shareholders of
The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.:
 
We have reviewed the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of financial condition of The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the Company) as of March 27, 2009 and December 26, 2008, the related condensed consolidated statements of earnings for the three months ended March 27, 2009 and February 29, 2008 and one month ended December 26, 2008, the condensed consolidated statements of changes in shareholders’ equity for the three months ended March 27, 2009 and one month ended December 26, 2008, the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the three months ended March 27, 2009 and February 29, 2008 and one month ended December 26, 2008, and the condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income for the three months ended March 27, 2009 and February 29, 2008 and one month ended December 26, 2008. These condensed consolidated interim financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management.
 
We conducted our review in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). A review of interim financial information consists principally of applying analytical procedures and making inquiries of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters. It is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements taken as a whole. Accordingly, we do not express such an opinion.
 
Based on our review, we are not aware of any material modifications that should be made to the accompanying condensed consolidated interim financial statements for them to be in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
We previously audited in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated statement of financial condition as of November 28, 2008, and the related consolidated statements of earnings, changes in shareholders’ equity, cash flows and comprehensive income for the year then ended (not presented herein), and in our report dated January 22, 2009 we expressed an unqualified opinion on those consolidated financial statements. In our opinion, the information set forth in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of financial condition as of November 28, 2008 and the condensed consolidated statement of changes in shareholders’ equity for the year ended November 28, 2008, is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the consolidated financial statements from which it has been derived.
