According to the Debtor's Declaration, "The deterioration in the U.S. housing and mortgage markets that began in 2007 and continues through today has had a significant adverse impact on the financial condition of the FGIC Group. Because of a dramatic, sustained increase in the number of U.S. mortgage defaults and foreclosures, a large number of the FGIC-insured ABS CDOs and RMBS have defaulted. As a result, during 2007, 2008 and 2009, FGIC paid claims on its insurance policies far in excess of historical levels".
