In addition, the ratings on five other classes from the deal and one class from a second GSMPS transaction were affirmed. The downgrades were attributed to growing average monthly losses in series 2003-3 over the past 12 months, from $73,000 to $115,000 per month. The collateral for the deal consists of reperforming loans backed by the Federal Housing Administration or the Department of Veterans Affairs, Fitch said.
