DBRS Morningstar Confirms Rating on FCT Oneycord, Compartiment Oneycord 1

Consumer Loans & Credit Cards
May 28, 2021

DBRS Ratings GmbH (DBRS Morningstar) confirmed its rating of the Obligation A bonds (the Class A Notes) issued by FCT Oneycord, Compartiment Oneycord 1 (the Issuer) at A (high) (sf).

The rating of the Class A Notes addresses the timely payment of interest and ultimate payment of principal on or before the legal final maturity date of 31 December 2042.

The confirmation follows an annual review of the transaction and is based on the following analytical considerations:
-- Portfolio performance, in terms of delinquencies, charge-off rates, monthly principal payment rates (MPPR), and yield rates, as of the May 2021 payment date.
-- Current available credit enhancement to the Class A Notes to cover the expected losses at the A (high) (sf) rating level.
-- Current economic environment and an assessment of sustainable performance, as a result of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
-- No revolving termination events have occurred.

The transaction is a securitisation of credit card receivables and revolving credit lines, originated and serviced by Oney Bank S.A. (Oney Bank) in France. Oney Bank is a captive finance company owned by the French retail group Auchan (49.9%) and the banking group BCPE (50.1%). The transaction is in its revolving period, scheduled to end on the June 2023 payment date with an optional extension to the June 2027 payment date. The transaction closed in September 2009 and the last restructuring of the transaction occurred in May 2019.

As of the May 2021 payment date, loans that were two to three months in arrears represented 0.6% of the outstanding portfolio balance, down from 0.8% in May 2020 and the 90+ delinquency ratio was at 1.7%, slightly up from 1.6% a year ago.

As of the May 2021 payment date, the MPPR was 8.8%, the annualised charge-off rate was 2.2%, and the annualised yield rate was 20.5%.

The transaction will begin to amortise if certain triggers are breached. As of the May 2021 payment date, the monthly default rate was 0.18%, which is below the amortisation trigger level of 1.05%. The monthly portfolio yield was 1.07%, which is above the amortisation trigger level of 0.9%.

DBRS Morningstar maintained its base case MPPR, charge-off rate, and yield rate assumptions at 7.6%, 9.8%, and 14.0%, respectively, and considered portfolio-specific coronavirus adjustments in its analysis.

The Class A Notes benefit from minimum credit enhancement of 22.3%, which consists of subordination of the Obligation B bonds and the Obligation Cedant, in addition to the Reserve Fund.

The Reserve Fund is funded to 3% of the Minimum Receivables Balance and is currently at its target level of EUR 20.7 million. The Reserve Fund covers senior fees and interest on the Class A Notes. In addition, 1.5% is available to cover other items in the waterfall.

Natixis S.A. acts as the account bank for the transaction. Based on the DBRS Morningstar private rating of Natixis S.A., the downgrade provisions outlined in the transaction documents, and other mitigating factors inherent in the transaction structure, DBRS Morningstar considers the risk arising from the exposure to the account bank to be consistent with the rating assigned to the Class A Notes, as described in DBRS Morningstar's "Legal Criteria for European Structured Finance Transactions" methodology.

DBRS Morningstar analysed the transaction structure in its proprietary cash flow engine.

The Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and the resulting isolation measures have caused an economic contraction, leading to sharp increases in unemployment rates and income reductions for many borrowers. DBRS Morningstar anticipates that delinquencies may continue to increase in the coming months for many ABS transactions, some meaningfully. The ratings are based on additional analysis and adjustments to expected performance as a result of the global efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

For this transaction, DBRS Morningstar assessed a reduction in the expected principal payment rate in line with historical sensitivity to unemployment rates.
