The Bank of New York Mellon Appointed Trustee, Paying Agent and Registrar for Canada's C$32 Billion Asset-Backed Commercial Paper Market Restructuring

    NEW YORK, Jan. 23 /CNW/ -- The Bank of New York Mellon, through its
subsidiary BNY Trust Company of Canada, has been appointed trustee, paying
agent and registrar for the C$32 billion restructuring of Canada's non-bank
sponsored asset-backed commercial paper market.  The complex restructuring,
which involves issuing new long-term notes to investors in exchange for their
short-term paper, was developed by a group of major banks and investors with
the backing of the Canadian government.

    In its role, the Bank will service the debt issues and process principal
and interest payments for investors.  The Bank will also serve as collateral
agent and accounting agent on three separate pools of assets, in which the
company will monitor collateral, prepare financial statements and assist with
reporting requirements.

    "The Bank of New York Mellon is uniquely qualified to handle the diverse
and complex requirements associated with this restructuring," said Scott
Posner, CEO of the company's Global Corporate Trust business.  "We have worked
closely with the Pan-Canadian Investors Committee to design and prepare a
servicing platform that meets the challenging requirements of this transaction
and look forward to working with all parties to implement an effective and
successful restructuring."

    Corporate trust providers are appointed by corporations, municipal
governments and other entities issuing debt to perform a variety of duties,
including servicing and maintaining the debt issue, processing payments for
investors, representing investors in defaults, and providing value-added
services for complex debt structures.
