Default Question about Generalization result of SV's

Hi, I want to compliment and thank Professor and others for the wonderful set of lectures and the textbook which explain the subject of Machine Learning with extraordinary ease and clarity.

I have a question about the Generalization result of SV's, in Lecture 14, slide 20. It says that:
E[E_{out}] = \frac{E[N_{SV}]}{N-1}
I don't understand how was this bound derived (from something like the VC bound or is it an observation)? Also I am interested in knowing does it hold for any classification problem that we apply SV's for?
