Eleven classes of mortgage pass-though certificates from four deals issued by GSAMP Trust in 2002 and 2004 have been placed on review for possible downgrade by Moody's Investors Service.The affected securities are as follows: series 2002-HE, class M-1, class M-2, class B-1, and class B-2; series 2004-HE1, class B-2 and class B-1; series 2004-HE2, class B-4; and series 2004-SEA2, class M-2, class M-3, class M-4, and class M-5. The negative rating actions were attributed to analysis of the credit enhancement provided by subordination, overcollateralization, and excess spread relative to expected losses. GSAMP Trust 2002-HE, 2004-HE1, and 2004-HE2 are backed by subprime fixed- and adjustable-rate mortgage loans. GSAMP Trust 2004-SEA2 is backed by subprime fixed-rate seasoned mortgage loans.
