Ambac believes that the proposal put forth by the City of Detroit's state-appointed emergency manager, as well as the failure on the part of the State of Michigan to protect the status of general obligation bonds, is harmful to Detroit and the interests of taxpayers in Michigan. Ambac has hired Harrison J. Goldin of Goldin Associates to help advise Ambac on Detroit. Additionally, in response to investor inquiries on the matter, Ambac confirms that the liabilities associated with its Detroit insured exposure are obligations of Ambac's general account. Ambac honors general account claims with full, timely payments in accordance with the terms of such policies. Ambac's current insured exposure is Detroit limited tax GO $92.7M net par; and Detroit unlimited tax GO $77.6M net par.

Our team of professionals in New York, Puerto Rico and Washington are actively engaged in the situation. We will not tolerate any actions that could impair our interests and Ambac Assurance is ready to fully exercise all of its rights and remedies, if needed. If it were to become necessary, we are confident in our ability to pay timely principal and interest."
