today that it completed a securitization of a pool of retail conditional sale
contracts, receiving immediately available proceeds of approximately $1.0
billion (Canadian).
    Under the securitization transaction, a newly established trust sponsored

purposes.  As a result of such consolidation, both the pool of retail
contracts and the indebtedness incurred by the trust with respect to the
asset-backed notes will be reflected on the consolidated financial statements
of Ford Credit Canada.

repay indebtedness owing to Ford Motor Credit Company.  Ford Credit Canada is
an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Motor Credit Company.

finance companies and has supported the sale of Ford products since 1959. Ford
