WALTHAM, Massachusetts, January 26, 2011 - Lewtan(TM), provider of ABSNet(R), the industry's leading source for
asset-backed securities surveillance data, analytics, software, and content
for the global securitization industry, announces the release of its new and
redesigned ABSNet website. The entire site has been completely redesigned to
include a number of new features developed from client and market feedback,
reflecting lessons learned from the credit crisis as more and more firms have
taken the responsibility for robust credit surveillance on ABS and MBS

The new features of ABSNet will connect investors in the structured
finance industry to critical data. End of day bond pricing from Thomson
Reuters Pricing Service is now available. A comprehensive search tool, Bond
Screener, allows users to identify pricing and credit risk dislocations in
the market by comparing original versus current pool and bond performance
data, bond ratings, and prices. A customizable alert functionality makes
tracking trigger data for US RMBS transactions much easier.

"The new search tool and additional functionality of the new ABSNet
allows me to do things I could not do before, as Bond Screener provides the
ultimate flexibility in dissecting the entire ABS/MBS universe, saving
significant research time," said one senior research analyst who has been a
longtime ABSNet subscriber.

"With the new and redesigned ABSNet website, Lewtan continues to expand
the depth of structured finance information that market professionals demand
in order to manage and monitor their global portfolio," said Ira Keller, CEO
at Lewtan. "Lewtan is committed to supporting market transparency, by
providing the global securitization industry with the most comprehensive,
up-to-date surveillance data and analytical tools."

The inclusion of end of day bond pricing from Thomson Reuters combined
with ratings and reported trigger data for US RMBS will provide the ability
to actively monitor the health of current holdings. For a limited time,
ABSNet is offering complimentary access to the Thomson Reuters supplied
price. ABSNet will be featured at the American Securitization Forum (ASF)
2011 Conference in Orlando at Lewtan's exhibit (booth #111) in February. More
information is available online at www.absnet.net.
