The U.S. Department of Education (the Department) sponsored student loan-backed commercial paper conduit, Straight-A Funding, LLC (the Conduit) provides additional liquidity support to eligible student lenders by providing funding for FFEL Program Stafford and PLUS loans first disbursed on or after October 1, 2003 and before July 1, 2009, and fully disbursed by September 30, 2009. In addition to providing financing at a cost based on market rates, a significant benefit to lenders is that eligible loans are permitted to have borrower benefits, which are currently not permitted under the Participation and Purchase Programs (defined below). Funding from the Conduit is provided indirectly by the capital markets through the sale to private investors of government back-stopped asset-backed commercial paper. The Company receives funding equal to 97% of the principal and interest to be capitalized of the pledged student loans. The Conduit program expires in January 2014. The commercial paper issued by the Conduit has short-term maturities generally ranging up to 90 days. In the event the commercial paper issued by the Conduit cannot be reissued at maturity and the Conduit does not have sufficient cash to repay investors, the Federal Financing Bank (FFB) has committed to provide short-term liquidity to the Conduit. If the Conduit is not able to issue sufficient commercial paper to repay its investors or liquidity advances from the FFB, the Company can either secure alternative financing and repay its Conduit borrowings or sell the pledged student loans to the Department at a predetermined price equal to either 97% or 100% of the accrued interest and outstanding principal of pledged loans, depending on first disbursement date and certain other loan criteria.
