Global DiSCS Trust 2004-1 (TSX:DST.UN) Announces Quebecor World Inc. Credit Event

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 23, 2008) - On January 23, 2008 the Calculation Agent for Global DiSCS Trust 2004-1 (the "Trust") (TSX:DST.UN) notified the Trust of a Bankruptcy Credit Event on Quebecor World Inc. ("Quebecor") as a result of Quebecor filing a petition for creditor protection under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA) in Canada. The exposure of Global DiSCS Trust 2004-1 unitholders to Quebecor World Inc. is 0.50% of the Reference Portfolio.

The Calculation Agent will carry out the valuation process in accordance with the terms of the Declaration of Trust and this process should be completed by the end of April 2008. The Global DiSCS Trust 2004-1 units benefit from the protection of a synthetic first loss tranche equal to 3.86% of the Reference Portfolio. The initial 4.10% first loss tranche was reduced to 3.86% as a result the 2006 Delphi Corporation Credit Event. Therefore, Unitholders' entitlement to receive C$25 per unit on December 20, 2009 and quarterly distributions of $0.325 per unit will not be affected by this Credit Event.
