In the report, the analyst notes:

"Net income increased from the quarter ended March 31, 2010, as gains on sales of assets and recoveries of pre-FSA charged-off receivables more than offset a higher provision for credit losses and costs for an employee retention program announced last quarter. The second-quarter results include pre-tax net accretion and lower depreciation of $407 million resulting from fresh start accounting balance sheet adjustments recorded in December 2009.  

"CIT recently announced its actions to reduce high-cost debt by saying it will redeem notes that carry interest rates of more than 10%. Approximately $860 million of Series B second-lien notes will be redeemed at 103.5% of the principal amount. The 10.25% notes mature in 2015 and 2016. The move is to be completed November 4 and will leave outstanding $750 million of the series maturing in 2017. "
