(1) Certain totals may not foot due to rounding. Certain Sequoia securitization entities, the residential resecuritization we engaged in during the third quarter of 2011, and the commercial securitization we engaged in during the fourth quarter of 2012 are treated as secured borrowing transactions for GAAP and we are required under GAAP to consolidate the assets and liabilities of these securitization entities. The securitized assets and liabilities are legally not ours, and we own only the securities and interests that we acquired from these entities. The liabilities of these entities are obligations payable only from the cash flow generated by their securitized assets.

(2) The consolidating balance sheet presents the assets and liabilities of the residential resecuritization we engaged in during the third quarter of 2011 under Redwood (Parent), although these assets and liabilities are owned by the residential resecuritization entity and are legally not ours and we own only the securities and interests that we acquired from the residential resecuritization entity. At June 30, 2013, the residential resecuritization accounted for $296 million of real estate securities and other assets and $134 million of asset-backed securities issued and other liabilities.

The consolidating balance sheet presents the assets and liabilities of the commercial securitization we engaged in during the fourth quarter of 2012 under Redwood (Parent), although these assets and liabilities are owned by the commercial securitization entity and are legally not ours and we own only the securities and interests that we acquired from the commercial securitization entity. At June 30, 2013, the commercial securitization accounted for $276 million of commercial loans and other assets and $160 million of asset-backed securities issued and other liabilities.
