CIT GROUP INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES – NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

NOTE 1 — BUSINESS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

CIT Group Inc. has provided financial solutions to its clients since its formation in 1908. We provide financing and leasing capital principally for small businesses and middle market companies in a wide variety of industries and offer vendor, equipment, commercial and structured financing products, as well as factoring and management advisory services. CIT became a bank holding company (“BHC”) in 2008 and is the parent of CIT Bank, a state-chartered bank in Utah. We operate primarily in North America, with locations in Europe, South America and Asia.

BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include financial information related to CIT Group Inc., a Delaware Corporation, and its majority owned subsidiaries, including CIT Bank (collectively, “CIT” or the “Company”), and those variable interest entities (“VIEs”) where the Company is the primary beneficiary. Assets held in an agency or fiduciary capacity are not included in the consolidated financial statements.

In preparing the consolidated financial statements, all significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. These consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q for interim financial information and accordingly, do not include all information and note disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for complete financial statements. The financial statements in this Form 10-Q have not been audited by an independent registered public accounting firm in accordance with standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (U.S.), but in the opinion of management include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of CIT’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows in accordance with GAAP. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our current Form 10-K on file.

The consolidated financial statements include the effects of adopting Fresh Start Accounting (“FSA”) upon emergence from bankruptcy on December 10, 2009, based on a convenience date of December 31, 2009 (the “Convenience Date”), as required by GAAP. Accretion and amortization of certain FSA adjustments are included in the Statements of Operations and Cash Flows. See the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 (“Form 10-K”), “Note 1 — Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” and “Note 26 — Fresh Start Accounting”, for additional FSA and reorganization information.

The accounting and financial reporting policies of CIT Group Inc. conform to GAAP and the preparation of the consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts and disclosures. Actual results could differ from those estimates and assumptions. Some of the more significant estimates include: fresh start accounting, allowance for loan losses, loan impairment, fair value determinations, lease residual values, goodwill and intangible assets, and deferred tax assets and liabilities. Additionally, where applicable, the policies conform to accounting and reporting guidelines prescribed by bank regulatory authorities.

NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Fair Value Measurement

In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRS. The new guidance results in a consistent definition of fair value and common requirements for measurement of and disclosure about fair value between U.S. GAAP and IFRS. The disclosure requirements also have been enhanced. The most significant change requires entities, for their recurring Level 3 fair value measurements, to disclose quantitative information about unobservable inputs used, a description of the valuation processes used by the entity, and a qualitative discussion about the sensitivity of the measurements. New disclosures are required about the use of a nonfinancial asset measured or disclosed at fair value if its use differs from its highest and best use. In addition, entities must report the level in the fair value hierarchy of assets and liabilities not recorded at fair value but where fair value is disclosed. The amendment became effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption prohibited. The adoption of the guidance during the quarter ended March 31, 2012, did not affect the Company’s financial condition and resulted in additional fair value measurement disclosures.

Comprehensive Income

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05 to amend the guidance on the presentation of comprehensive income in FASB ASC Topic 220, Comprehensive Income that requires companies to present a single statement of comprehensive income or two consecutive statements. The guidance makes the financial statement presentation of other comprehensive income more prominent by eliminating the alternative to present comprehensive income within the statement of equity. The ASU became effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of the guidance during the quarter ended March 31, 2012 did not affect the Company’s financial condition but added the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income (Loss).

On December 23, 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-12, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05. The ASU defers the requirement to present components of reclassifications of other comprehensive income on the face of the income statement, while still requiring companies to adopt the other requirements contained in ASU No. 2011-05, as noted above.

Item 1:  Consolidated Financial Statements  7

CIT GROUP INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES – NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

Balance Sheet Offsetting Disclosure Requirements

In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-11, Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities which creates new disclosure requirements about the nature of an entity’s rights of setoff and related arrangements associated with its financial instruments and derivative instruments. The new disclosures will enable financial statement users to compare balance sheets prepared under U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”), which are subject to different offsetting models. The disclosures will be limited to financial instruments and derivatives subject to enforceable master netting arrangements or similar agreements and excludes loans unless they are netted in the statement of financial condition. The amendments will affect all entities that have financial instruments and derivatives that are either offset in the balance sheet or subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement or similar agreement regardless of whether they are offset in the balance sheet. The ASU will require entities to disclose, separately for financial assets and liabilities, including derivatives, the gross amounts of recognized financial assets and liabilities; the amounts offset under current U.S. GAAP; the net amounts presented in the balance sheet; the amounts subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement or similar agreement that were not included in the offset amount above, and the reconciling amount.

The disclosure requirements are effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013, with retrospective application required. The Company is evaluating the impact of this amendment.

Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets Impairment Test

In July 2012, the FASB issued ASU No. 2012-02, Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment which amends the guidance in ASC Topic 350 on testing indefinite-lived intangible assets other than goodwill for impairment. Under ASC 350-30, entities must test indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment at least annually by calculating and comparing an asset’s fair value with its carrying amount. An impairment loss would be recorded for an amount equal to the excess of the asset’s carrying amount over its fair value. ASU No. 2012-02 provides the option of performing a qualitative assessment before calculating the fair value of the asset, when testing an indefinite-lived intangible asset for impairment. If an entity determines, on the basis of qualitative factors, that the fair value of an indefinite-lived intangible asset is not more likely than not impaired, they would not need to calculate the fair value of the asset. The ASU does not revise the requirement to test indefinite-lived intangible assets annually for impairment. In addition, the ASU does not amend the requirement to test these assets for impairment between annual tests if there is a change in events or circumstances; however, it does revise the examples of events and circumstances that an entity should consider in interim periods.

The guidance will be effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012. As the Company has no indefinite-lived intangible assets, adoption of this guidance will have no impact on the consolidated financial statements.

Certain of the following tables present credit-related information at the “class” level in accordance with ASC 310-10-50, Disclosures about the Credit Quality of Finance Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Losses. A class is generally a disaggregation of a portfolio segment. In determining the classes, CIT considered the finance receivable characteristics and methods it applies in monitoring and assessing credit risk and performance.

Credit Quality Information

The following table summarizes finance receivables by the risk ratings that bank regulatory agencies utilize to classify credit exposure and which are consistent with indicators the Company monitors. Risk ratings are reviewed on a regular basis by Credit Risk Management and are adjusted as necessary for updated information affecting the borrowers’ ability to fulfill their obligations.

The definitions of these ratings are as follows:

n
  Pass – finance receivables in this category do not meet the criteria for classification in one of the categories below.

n
  Special mention – a special mention asset exhibits potential weaknesses that deserve management’s close attention. If left uncorrected, these potential weaknesses may, at some future date, result in the deterioration of the repayment prospects.

n
  Classified – a classified asset ranges from: 1) assets that exhibit a well defined weakness and are inadequately protected by the current sound worth and paying capacity of the borrower, and are characterized by the distinct possibility that some loss will be sustained if the deficiencies are not corrected to 2) assets with weaknesses that make collection or liquidation in full unlikely on the basis of current facts, conditions, and values. Assets in this classification can be accruing or on non-accrual depending on the evaluation of these factors.

Payments received on non-accrual financing receivables are generally applied first against outstanding principal.

Impaired Loans

The Company’s policy is to review for impairment finance receivables greater than $500,000 that are on non-accrual status. Consumer loans and small-ticket loan and lease receivables that have not been modified in a troubled debt restructuring, as well as short-term factoring receivables, are included (if appropriate) in the reported non-accrual balances above, but are excluded from the impaired finance receivables disclosure below as charge-offs are typically determined and recorded for such loans when they are more than 120 – 150 days past due.

The following table contains information about impaired finance receivables and the related allowance for loan losses, exclusive of finance receivables that were identified as impaired at the Convenience Date for which the Company is applying the income recognition and disclosure guidance in ASC 310-30 (Loans and Debt Securities Acquired with Deteriorated Credit Quality), which are disclosed further below in this note.

CIT GROUP INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES – NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

Impairment occurs when, based on current information and events, it is probable that CIT will be unable to collect all amounts due according to the contractual terms of the agreement. The Company has established review and monitoring procedures designed to identify, as early as possible, customers that are experiencing financial difficulty. Credit risk is captured and analyzed based on the Company’s internal probability of obligor default (PD) and loss given default (LGD) ratings. A PD rating is determined by evaluating borrower credit-worthiness, including analyzing credit history, financial condition, cash flow adequacy, financial performance and management quality. An LGD rating is predicated on transaction structure, collateral valuation and related guarantees or recourse. Further, related considerations in determining probability of collection include the following:

n
  Instances where the primary source of payment is no longer sufficient to repay the loan in accordance with terms of the loan document;

n
  Lack of current financial data related to the borrower or guarantor;

n
  Delinquency status of the loan;

n
  Loans that have been restructured pursuant to a Trouble Debt Restructuring;

n
  Borrowers experiencing problems, such as operating losses, marginal working capital, inadequate cash flow or business interruptions;

n
  Loans secured by collateral that is not readily marketable or that is susceptible to deterioration in realizable value; and

n
  Loans to borrowers in industries or countries experiencing economic instability.

Impairment is measured as the shortfall between estimated value and recorded investment in the finance receivable. A specific allowance or charge-off is recorded for the shortfall. In instances where the estimated value exceeds the recorded investment, no specific allowance is recorded. The estimated value is determined using fair value of collateral and other cash flows if the finance receivable is collateralized, or the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the contract’s effective interest rate. In instances when the Company measures impairment based on the present value of expected future cash flows, the change in present value is reported in the provision for credit losses.

The following summarizes key elements of the Company’s policy regarding the determination of collateral fair value in the measurement of impairment:

n
  “Orderly liquidation value” is the basis for collateral valuation;

n
  Appraisals are updated annually or more often as market conditions warrant;

n
  Appraisal values are discounted in the determination of impairment if the:

n
  appraisal does not reflect current market conditions; or

n
  collateral consists of inventory, accounts receivable, or other forms of collateral, which may become difficult to locate, collect or subject to pilferage in a liquidation.

Loans Acquired with Deteriorated Credit Quality

For purposes of this presentation, finance receivables that were identified as impaired at the Convenience Date are presented separately below. The Company is applying the income recognition and disclosure guidance in ASC 310-30 (Loans and Debt Securities Acquired with Deteriorated Credit Quality) to loans considered impaired under FSA at the Convenience Date.

Troubled Debt Restructurings

The Company periodically modifies the terms of finance receivables in response to borrowers’ difficulties. Modifications that include a financial concession to the borrower are accounted for as troubled debt restructurings (TDRs).

CIT uses a consistent methodology across all loans to determine if a modification is with a borrower that has been determined to be in financial difficulty and was granted a concession. Specifically, the Company’s policies on TDR identification include the following examples of indicators used to determine whether the borrower is in financial difficulty:

n
  Borrower is in default

n
  Borrower has declared bankruptcy

n
  Growing doubt about the borrower’s ability to continue as a going concern

n
  Borrower has insufficient cash flow to service debt

n
  Borrower is de-listing securities

n
  Borrower’s inability to obtain funds from other sources

n
  Breach of financial covenants by the borrower

If CIT determines the borrower is in financial difficulty, then CIT utilizes the following criteria to determine whether a concession has been granted to the borrower:

n
  Assets used to satisfy debt are less than CIT’s recorded investment in the receivable

n
  Modification of terms – interest rate changed to below market rate

n
  Maturity date extension at an interest rate less than market rate

n
  The borrower does not otherwise have access to funding for debt with similar risk characteristics in the market at the restructured rate and terms

n
  Capitalization of interest

n
  Increase in interest reserves

n
  Conversion of credit to Payment-In-Kind (PIK)

n
  Delaying principal and/or interest for a period of three months or more

n
  Partial forgiveness of the balance

Modified loans that are classified as TDRs are individually evaluated and measured for impairment. Modified loans that meet the definition of a TDR are subject to the Company’s standard impaired loan policy, namely that non-accrual loans in excess of $500,000 are individually reviewed for impairment, while non-accrual loans less than $500,000 are considered as part of homogenous pools and are included in the determination of the non-specific allowance.

The recorded investment of TDRs at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was $321.5 million and $445.2 million, of which 35% and 63%, respectively, were on non-accrual. Corporate Finance receivables accounted for 91% of the total TDRs at September 30, 2012 and 88% at December 31, 2011. At September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, there were $6.1 million and $27.8 million, respectively, of commitments to lend additional funds to borrowers whose loan terms have been modified in TDRs.

  Payment default in the table above is one missed payment.

The financial impact of the various modification strategies that the Company employs in response to borrower difficulties is described below. While the discussion focuses on current quarter amounts, the overall nature and impact of modification programs were comparable in the prior year.

n
  The nature of modifications qualifying as TDR’s, based upon recorded investment at September 30, 2012, was payment deferral of 87%, covenant relief and/or other of 7%, interest rate reductions and debt forgiveness of 6%;

n
  Payment deferrals, the Company’s most common type of modification program, result in lower net present value of cash flows and increased provision for credit losses to the extent applicable. The financial impact of these modifications is not significant given the reduction to recorded investment balances from FSA discount and the moderate length of deferral periods;

n
  Interest rate reductions result in lower amounts of interest being charged to the customer, but are a relatively small part of the Company’s restructuring programs. Additionally, in some instances, modifications improve the Company’s economic return through increased interest rates and fees, but are reported as TDRs due to assessments regarding the borrowers’ ability to independently obtain similar funding in the market and assessments of the relationship between modified rates and terms and comparable market rates and terms. The weighted average change in interest rates for all TDRs occurring during the 2012 third quarter was immaterial;

n
  Debt forgiveness, or the reduction in amount owed by borrower, results in incremental provision for credit losses, in the form of higher charge-offs. While these types of modifications have the greatest individual impact on the allowance, the combined financial impact for TDR’s occurring during the quarter and the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and outstanding as of September 30, 2012 approximated $0.9 million and $1.4 million, respectively, as debt forgiveness is a relatively small component of the Company’s modification programs; and

n
  The other elements of the Company’s modification programs do not have a significant impact on financial results given their relative size, or do not have a direct financial impact as in the case of covenant changes.

CIT GROUP INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES – NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

Debt and equity securities are classified based on management’s intention on the date of purchase and assessed at each reporting date. Debt securities classified as held-to-maturity represent securities that the Company has both the ability and intent to hold until maturity, and are carried at amortized cost.

Debt securities and equity securities classified as available-for-sale are carried at fair value with changes in fair value reported in other comprehensive income (“OCI”), net of applicable income taxes.

Non-marketable equity securities are carried at cost and periodically assessed for other-than-temporary impairment (“OTTI”).

The Company conducts and documents periodic reviews of all securities with unrealized losses to evaluate whether the impairment is OTTI. For debt securities classified as held-to-maturity that are considered to have OTTI that the Company does not intend to sell and it is more likely than not that the Company will not be required to sell before recovery, the OTTI is separated into an amount representing the credit loss, which is recognized in the Consolidated Statement of Operations and the amount related to all other factors, which is recognized in OCI. OTTI on debt securities and equity securities classified as available-for-sale and non-marketable securities are recognized in the Consolidated Statement of Operations in the period determined.

  The previously secured Revolving Credit Facility, Series C Notes and Other Debt became unsecured upon full redemption of Series A Notes on March 9, 2012.

Unsecured

As a result of redeeming the remaining Series A Notes during the 2012 first quarter, the Revolving Credit Facility and all of our Series C Notes became unsecured.

Revolving Credit Facility

On August 25, 2011, CIT and certain of its subsidiaries entered into a Revolving Credit and Guaranty Agreement, among CIT Group Inc., certain subsidiaries of CIT Group Inc., as guarantors, the lenders party thereto from time to time and Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent, collateral agent and letter of credit issuer (the “Revolving Credit Facility”). The total commitment amount under the Revolving Credit Facility is $2 billion, consisting of a $1.65 billion revolving loan tranche and a $350 million revolving loan tranche that can also be utilized for issuance of letters of credit. The Revolving Credit Facility matures on August 14, 2015 and will accrue interest at a per annum rate of LIBOR plus a margin of 2.00% to 2.75% (with no floor) or Base Rate plus a margin of 1.00% to 1.75% (with no floor). The applicable margin will be determined by reference to the long-term senior unsecured, non-credit enhanced debt rating of the Company by S&P and Moody’s effective at relevant times during the life of the Revolving Credit Facility. Due to the Company’s credit rating upgrades in early 2012, the applicable margin for LIBOR loans is 2.50% and the applicable margin for Base Rate loans is 1.50% at September 30, 2012.

The Revolving Credit Facility may be prepaid and re-borrowed from time to time at the option of CIT. The amount available to draw upon at September 30, 2012 was approximately $1.4 billion. The unutilized portion of any commitment under the Revolving Credit Facility may be reduced permanently or terminated by CIT at any time without penalty.

Once the Company redeemed all the remaining Series A Second-Priority Secured Notes (“Series A Notes”) during the 2012 first quarter, all the collateral and subsidiary guarantees under the Revolving Credit Facility were released, except for subsidiary guarantees from eight of the Company’s domestic operating subsidiaries (“Continuing Guarantors”). Once the Revolving Credit Facility became unsecured, the collateral coverage covenant was replaced by an asset coverage covenant (based on the book value of eligible assets of the Continuing Guarantors) of 2.0x the sum of: (i) the committed facility size and (ii) all outstanding indebtedness (including, without duplication, guarantees of such indebtedness) for borrowed money (excluding subordinated intercompany indebtedness) of the Continuing Guarantors, tested monthly and upon certain dispositions or encumbrances of eligible assets of the Continuing Guarantors.

The Revolving Credit Facility is also subject to a $6 billion minimum consolidated net worth covenant of the Company, tested quarterly, and limits the Company’s ability to create liens, merge or consolidate, sell, transfer, lease or dispose of all or substantially all of its assets, grant a negative pledge or make

certain restricted payments during the occurrence and continuance of an event of default.

Series C Notes

In March 2011, the Company issued $2 billion of new Series C Notes, consisting of $1.3 billion of three year 5.25% fixed rate notes and $700 million of seven year 6.625% fixed rate notes.

In June 2011, the Company successfully completed an Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation for outstanding 7% Series A Notes maturing in 2015, 2016, and 2017. As a result, $8.76 billion principal amount of Series C Notes (pre-FSA) with the same interest rate were issued in exchange for the Series A Notes tendered and accepted.

In February 2012, the Company issued at par $3.25 billion aggregate principal amount of Series C Notes, consisting of $1.5 billion principal amount of three-year 4.75% fixed rate notes due 2015 (the “2015 Notes”) and $1.75 billion principal amount of seven-year 5.50% fixed rate notes due 2019 (the “2019 Notes,” together with the 2015 Notes, the “Notes”). The proceeds of the transaction were used, in conjunction with available cash, to redeem the remaining Series A Notes in March 2012.

Once the Company’s remaining Series A Notes were redeemed during the 2012 first quarter, all the collateral and subsidiary guarantees under the Series C Notes were released and the notes became senior unsecured obligations.

The Series C Notes Indentures limit the Company’s ability to create liens, merge or consolidate, or sell, transfer, lease or dispose of all or substantially all of its assets. Upon a Change of Control Triggering Event as defined in the Series C Indentures, holders of the Series C Notes will have the right to require the Company, as applicable, to repurchase all or a portion of the Series C Notes at a purchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the date of such repurchase.

During 2012, CIT redeemed or repurchased the $8.76 billion of 7% Series C Notes ($4.6 billion in the third quarter of 2012), which resulted in the acceleration of over $1.3 billion of FSA discount accretion ($0.5 billion in the third quarter of 2012) that was recorded as additional interest expense and also resulted in a loss on debt extinguishment of $61 million ($17 million in the third quarter of 2012).

Senior Unsecured Notes

In March 2012, CIT filed a “shelf” registration statement and issued at par $1.5 billion of senior unsecured notes that mature in 2018 and bear interest at a rate of 5.25%.

In May 2012, CIT issued at par $1.25 billion of senior unsecured notes that mature in 2017 and bear interest at a rate of 5.00% and $750 million of senior unsecured notes that mature in 2020 and bear interest at a rate of 5.375%. In August 2012, CIT issued at par $1.75 billion of senior unsecured notes that mature in 2017 and bear interest at a rate of 4.25% and $1.25 billion of senior unsecured notes that mature in 2022 and bear interest at a rate of 5.00%. The proceeds of these transactions were used in conjunction with available cash, to redeem the 7% Series C Notes in 2012.

These senior unsecured notes rank equal in right of payment with the Series C Notes and the Revolving Credit Facility. The Revolving Credit Facility also benefits from certain subsidiary guarantees as described above.

Secured

Series A Notes

On December 10, 2009, pursuant to the Plan of Reorganization the Company issued $21.04 billion principal amount of its 7.0% Series A Second-Priority Secured Notes with maturities each year from 2013 to 2017 (the “Series A Notes”).

During the first quarter 2012, CIT redeemed the remaining $6.5 billion of Series A Notes, which resulted in the acceleration of $597 million of FSA discount accretion that was recorded as additional interest expense and also resulted in a loss on debt extinguishments of $23 million reflecting a portion of the underwriting fees on the issuance of $3.25 billion of Series C Notes in February 2012. The elimination of our remaining Series A Notes resulted in all of CIT’s Series C Notes and the Revolving Credit Facility becoming unsecured.

Secured Borrowings

Set forth below are borrowings and pledged assets primarily owned by consolidated variable interest entities. Creditors of these entities received ownership and/or security interests in the assets. These entities are intended to be bankruptcy remote so that such assets are not available to creditors of CIT or any affiliates of CIT until and unless the related secured borrowings have been fully discharged. These transactions do not meet accounting requirements for sales treatment and are recorded as secured borrowings. Except as otherwise noted, pledged assets listed in the following table as of December 31, 2011 were not included in the collateral available to lenders under the Revolving Credit Facility or the Series A or C Notes described above. At September 30, 2012, the Revolving Credit Facility and Series C Notes were unsecured and there were no Series A Notes outstanding.

Variable Interest Entities (“VIEs”)

The Company utilizes VIEs in the ordinary course of business to support its own and its customers’ financing needs.

The most significant types of VIEs that CIT utilizes are ‘on balance sheet’ secured financings of pools of leases and loans originated by the Company. The Company originates pools of assets and sells these to special purpose entities (“SPE’s”), which, in turn, issue debt instruments backed by the asset pools or sell individual interests in the assets to investors.
