Fitch Rates J.P. Morgan PUTTERs/DRIVERs, Series 4433 Trust

February 6, 2014

NEW YORK --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Fitch Ratings assigns the following ratings to the Puttable Tax-Exempt Receipts (PUTTERs) and Derivative Inverse Tax-Exempt Receipts (DRIVERs) of the J.P. Morgan PUTTERs/DRIVERs Trust series listed below: --PUTTERs, Series 4433 'A+/F1'; Stable Outlook; --DRIVERs, Series 4433A-D 'A+'; Stable Outlook. KEY RATING DRIVERS The Long-term 'A+'; Stable Outlook ratings assigned to the series 4433 PUTTERs and series 4433A-D DRIVERs are based on the ratings that Fitch has assigned to the New Jersey Educational Facilities Authority Revenue Bonds, Higher Education Equipment Leasing Fund Program Issue, Series 2014 (rated 'A+'; Stable Outlook by Fitch) that have been deposited in the series 4433 trust. The Short-term 'F1' rating assigned to the series 4433 PUTTERs is based on the liquidity facility provided by JPMorgan Chase & Co. (rated 'A+/F1'; Stable Outlook). The 'F1' rating assigned to the PUTTERs will expire on March 15, 2015 , the expiration date of the liquidity facility, unless such date is extended or earlier terminated. RATING SENSITIVITIES The short-term rating assigned to the PUTTERs reflects the short-term rating that Fitch maintains on the bank providing liquidity support and will be adjusted upward or downward in conjunction with the short-term rating of the bank, and, in some cases, the long-term rating of the underlying bonds deposited in the trust. The long-term ratings assigned to the PUTTERs and DRIVERs are exclusively tied to the creditworthiness of the underlying bonds deposited in the trust and will reflect all changes to that rating.
