(1) We are required under GAAP to consolidate the assets and liabilities of certain securitization entities we have sponsored for financial reporting purposes. However, the securitized assets of these entities are not legally ours and we own only the securities and interests that we acquired from these securitization entities. Similarly, the liabilities of these entities are obligations payable only from the cash flow generated by their securitized assets and are not obligations of Redwood. Certain totals may not foot due to rounding.

(2) Included in the "At Redwood" column are the assets and liabilities of the Residential Resecuritization and Commercial Securitization transactions we completed in 2011 and 2012, respectively. These transactions are treated as secured borrowings under GAAP. At December 31, 2013, the Residential Resecuritization accounted for $264 million of assets ($263 million of available-for-sale securities at fair value and $1 million of other assets) and $95 million of asset-backed securities issued (at amortized cost). Our $169 million investment in this resecuritization, as estimated for GAAP, equals the difference between these assets and liabilities. At December 31, 2013, the Commercial Securitization accounted for $270 million of assets ($258 million of commercial real estate loans at historical cost and $12 million of other assets) and $154 million of asset-backed securities issued (at amortized cost). Our $116 million investment in this securitization, as estimated for GAAP, equals the difference between these assets and liabilities.
