Ladies and Gentlemen:

This Notice is given by The Bank of New York Mellon (the “Trustee”), as trustee or indenture trustee under the Pooling and Servicing Agreements and Indentures and related Sales and Servicing Agreements (collectively, the “Governing Agreements”) governing the Settlement Trusts. The purpose of this Notice is to inform the beneficial owners of the Subject Securities and other persons potentially interested in the Settlement Trusts that the requirements of Subparagraphs 2(e) and 2(f) of the Settlement Agreement have been satisfied in full on October 5, 2015 and October 13, 2015, respectively, and that therefore the “Approval Date” under the Settlement Agreement has occurred on October 13, 2015.

Subparagraph 2(e) of the Settlement Agreement conditions Final Court Approval on the receipt of certain private letter ruling(s) from the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) with respect to the Settlement Trusts and provides that the Trustee shall cause the submission of a request for such private letter ruling(s) to the IRS and use reasonable best efforts to pursue such request. Subparagraph 2(f) of the Settlement Agreement conditions Final Court Approval on the receipt, at the Trustee’s request, of an opinion of Trustee tax counsel with respect to certain states concerning the same matters that would be covered by the requested private letter ruling(s).

In a prior informational notice, dated June 29, 2015 (the “June 2015 Informational
Notice”), the Trustee informed the beneficial owners of the Subject Securities and other persons
potentially interested in the Settlement Trusts that on April 8, 2015, the Trustee submitted to the
IRS a request for private letter ruling(s) under Sections 860A-860G of the Internal Revenue
Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) with respect to the Settlement Agreement (the “Private
Ruling Request”). The Trustee further informed the beneficial owners of the Subject Securities
and other persons potentially interested in the Settlement Trusts that the Trustee expected
delivery of the opinions contemplated under Subparagraph 2(f) of the Settlement Agreement
shortly after the issuance by the IRS of the private letter ruling(s) requested in the Private Ruling
Request.

The Trustee hereby provides notice that on October 5, 2015, Trustee’s tax counsel
received, on behalf of Trustee, a private letter ruling from the IRS (PLR-113051-15) that
satisfies the requirements of Subparagraph 2(e) of the Settlement Agreement in all respects (the
“Private Letter Ruling”). A copy of the Private Letter Ruling is attached as Exhibit B hereto.
The Trustee hereby provides further notice that on October 13, 2015, the Trustee
received opinions from Trustee tax counsel (the “Tax Opinions”) that satisfy the requirements
of Subparagraph 2(f) of the Settlement Agreement in all respects.

As a result of the foregoing, the “Approval Date” under the Settlement Agreement has
occurred on October 13, 2015. Accordingly, among other things, (i) the servicing improvements
set out in Subparagraph 5(c) of the Settlement Agreement and the reporting and attestation
obligations set out in Subparagraph 5(f) of the Settlement Agreement are now in effect; (ii)
pursuant to Subparagraph 3(c)(iv) of the Settlement Agreement, the Expert is required to
calculate the Allocable Share of each Settlement Trust within ninety (90) days of October 13,
2015, and (iii) pursuant to Subparagraph 3(a) of the Settlement Agreement, Bank of America
and/or Countrywide are required to pay the Settlement Payment or cause the Settlement
Payment to be paid in accordance with Subparagraph 3(b) of the Settlement Agreement within
one-hundred and twenty (120) days of October 13, 2015.

The Trustee expects to provide one or more additional informational notices (x) after
the Expert determines the Allocable Share of each Settlement Trust in accordance with
Subparagraph 3(c) of the Settlement Agreement and (y) after Countrywide and/or Bank of
America inform the Trustee of the date on which the Settlement Payment will be paid in
accordance with Subparagraph 3(b) of the Settlement Agreement (at which time the Trustee
expects to also give notice concerning the applicable distribution date on which the Settlement
Trusts’ Allocable Shares will be distributed to Investors in accordance with Subparagraph 3(d)
of the Settlement Agreement).

This Notice is not intended to be and should not be construed as investment, accounting,
financial, legal or tax advice by or on behalf of the Trustee, or its directors, officers, affiliates,
agents, attorneys or employees. Each person receiving this Notice is urged to carefully review
the Notice and should seek the advice of its own advisors in respect of the matters set forth
herein.

If you have any questions regarding this Notice, please contact the Trustee by email at
Questions@cwrmbssettlement.com or by telephone at (866) 294-7876 or (614) 569-0289.
