Fitch Affirms One Class of Banc of America Funding 2012-R5 Ltd.

NEW YORK -- Fitch Ratings has affirmed one class of notes issued by Banc of America Funding 2012-R5 Ltd. (BAFC 2012-R5) in connection with an amendment whereby BAFC 2012-R5 contributed an additional amount of the underlying securities and issued an additional amount of Class A Notes. The affirmation is as follows:

--$848,426,000 class A notes at 'BBBsf'; Outlook Stable.

On Aug. 22, 2012 (the Upsize Closing Date), BAFC 2012-R5 purchased an additional $241.2 million of class A-1A notes, A-1B2 notes and A-2BV certificate interest (together, the senior notes) of Triaxx Prime CDO 2006-2, Ltd./LLC (Triaxx 2006-2) and issued an additional $182.2 million of class A notes and $59 million of unrated M1, M2 and M3 subordinated notes. The combined share of notes underlying BAFC 2012-R5 is now approximately 71.9% of the $1,662.1 million face value of the senior notes of Triaxx 2006-2, or $1,195 million.

The upsized class A notes now comprise 71% of the $1,195 million face value of collateral deposited with the trust, which is identical to the original structure that closed on June 29, 2012. However, immediately prior to the amendment, the size of the class A notes was 69.9% of the collateral due to two payments since the June closing. The upsized class A notes are larger following the amendment and, correspondingly, its credit enhancement levels are lower than the original structure.

Fitch analyzed the upsized structure under the same framework used at the original closing date. The framework is described in the rating action commentary titled 'Fitch Rates One Class of Banc of America Funding 2012-R5 Ltd.' dated June 29, 2012, available at www.fitchratings.com, for more information on the framework. In addition, Fitch compared actual payments to the class A notes on the last two payments, in July and August, with its base and 'BBBsf' stress projected cash flows. The actual payments came in higher than the original projections from June.

Based on this analysis, Fitch affirms the rating of the class A notes in the upsized amount.
