MONTHLY SUMMARY

This Summary Report shows Fiscal Year (October - September) commitment figures, as of the date indicated, for the Commodity Credit Corporation's (CCC) Export Credit Guarantee Program (GSM-102), the Intermediate Export Credit Guarantee Program (GSM-103) and the Supplier Credit Guarantee Program.

CAUTIONARY INFORMATION ON USE OF THIS REPORT

The enclosed tables reflect only exporter applications for guarantees which have been entered into the GSM-102/103 computerized System. At any given time, exporter applications are in process, and not all of those received (e.g., by facsimile) have been entered into the System. Moreover, all applications are initially entered into the System on a provisional basis until price review has been completed, the guarantee fee has been received, and the written guarantee has been issued. Thus, some applications now in the System may in the future be removed, and the commodity balances correspondingly increased. Users of this Report should be aware of these characteristics/limitations of the enclosed tables.

Additionally, users should be aware that the footnotes placed in the tables are intended only to highlight certain items which need to be interpreted with additional information. The footnotes are indicative only and not a substitute for the actual provisions of program announcements.
