(1) Certain totals may not foot due to rounding. Certain Sequoia and Acacia securitization entities and the resecuritization we engaged in during the third quarter of 2011 are treated as secured borrowing transactions for GAAP and we are required under GAAP to consolidate the assets and liabilities of these securitization entities. However, the securitized assets of these entities are not available to Redwood. Similarly, the liabilities of these entities are obligations payable only from the cash flow generated by their securitized assets and are not legal obligations of Redwood.

















(2) The consolidating balance sheet presents the assets and liabilities of the resecuritization we engaged in during the third quarter of 2011 under Redwood (Parent), although these assets and liabilities are owned by the resecuritization entity and are legally not ours and we own only the securities and interests that we acquired from the resecuritization entity. At March 31, 2012, the resecuritization accounted for $332 million of available-for-sale securities and $207 million of asset-backed securities issued and our investment in this resecuritization is reflected in the difference between these assets and liabilities.

















(3) The consolidating balance sheet presents the New Sequoia securitization entities separately from Other Consolidated Entities (Sequoia entities issued prior to 2010 and Acacia entities) to highlight our renewed focus on growing our core business of creating residential credit investments. As we complete additional securitizations, we expect New Sequoia Entities to represent a larger portion of our consolidated balance sheet as prior Sequoia securitization entities continue to pay down.
