DBRS Morningstar Confirms Credit Rating of Organa SPV S.r.l. at BBB (sf), Changes Trend to Positive from Stable

Nonperforming Loans
July 03, 2023

DBRS Ratings GmbH (DBRS Morningstar) confirmed its BBB (sf) credit rating on the Class A Notes issued by Organa SPV S.r.l. (the Issuer). DBRS Morningstar changed the trend on the credit rating to Positive from Stable.

The transaction represents the issuance of Class A, Class B, and Class J Notes (collectively, the Notes). The credit rating on the Class A Notes addresses the timely payment of interest and the ultimate payment of principal. DBRS Morningstar does not rate the Class B and Class J Notes.

As of the 31 December 2021 cut-off date, the Class A Notes were backed by a EUR 8.5 billion portfolio by gross book value (GBV) of Italian unsecured and secured nonperforming loans originated by Intesa Sanpaolo SpA (the Seller or the Originator). Intrum Italy S.p.A. (Intrum or the special servicer) services the receivables while Banca Finanziaria Internazionale S.p.A. acts as the Master Servicer for the transaction. Intrum will also act as backup servicer facilitator in case of the Master Servicer’s termination.

At the cut-off date, the securitised portfolio included unsecured loans representing approximately 69.3% of the GBV and secured loans representing the remaining 30.7% of the GBV, approximately 93.6% by GBV of which benefits from a first-ranking lien mortgage. At the cut-off date, the portfolio mainly consisted of corporate borrowers (82.5% by GBV) and the properties securing the loans in the portfolio were mainly residential (54.4% by updated real estate value).

The rating confirmation follows a review of the transaction and is based on the following analytical considerations:
-- Transaction performance: An assessment of portfolio recoveries as of 31 March 2023, focusing on (1) a comparison between actual collections and the Servicer’s initial business plan forecast, (2) the collection performance observed over recent months, and (3) a comparison between the current performance and DBRS Morningstar’s expectations.
-- Updated business plan: The Servicer’s updated business plan as of December 2022, received in May 2023, and a comparison with the initial collection expectations.
-- Portfolio characteristics: The loan pool composition as of March 2023 and the evolution of its core features since issuance.
-- Transaction liquidating structure: The order of priority entails a fully sequential amortisation of the notes (i.e., the Class B Notes will begin to amortise following the full repayment of the Class A Notes and the Class J Notes will begin to amortise following the repayment of the Class B Notes). Additionally, interest payments on the Class B Notes become subordinated to principal payments on the Class A Notes if the cumulative net collection ratio or the net present value cumulative profitability ratio are lower than 90%. As of the April 2023 interest payment date, these triggers had not been breached with actual figures at 175.1% and 126.9%, respectively, according to the special servicer.
-- Liquidity support: The transaction benefits from an amortising cash reserve and a recovery expenses cash reserve providing liquidity to the structure and covering a potential interest shortfall on the Class A Notes and senior fees. The cash reserve target amount is equal to 4% of the Class A Notes’ principal outstanding balance and is currently fully funded.
-- The exposure to the transaction account bank and the downgrade provisions outlined in the transaction documents.

According to the latest investor report from April 2023, the outstanding principal amounts of the Class A, Class B and Class J Notes were EUR 665.6 million, EUR 130.0 million, and EUR 15.0 million, respectively. As of the April 2023 payment date, the balance of the Class A Notes had amortised by 31.4% since issuance and the current aggregated transaction balance was EUR 810.7 million.

As of March 2023, the transaction was performing above the Servicer’s business plan expectations. The actual cumulative gross collections equalled EUR 392.2 million whereas the Servicer’s initial business plan estimated cumulative gross collections of EUR 229.8 million for the same period. Therefore, as of March 2022, the transaction was overperforming significantly by EUR 162.4 million (70.7%) compared with the initial business plan expectations.

At issuance, DBRS Morningstar estimated cumulative gross collections for the same period of EUR 135.2 million at the BBB (sf) stressed scenario. Therefore, as of March 2023, the transaction was performing above DBRS Morningstar’s initial stressed expectations.

Pursuant to the requirements set out in the receivable servicing agreement, in May 2023, the Servicer delivered an updated portfolio business plan. The updated portfolio business plan, combined with the actual cumulative gross collections of EUR 339.0 million as of December 2022, results in a total of EUR 1,724.7 million, which is virtually unchanged to the total gross disposition proceeds of EUR 1,724.7 million estimated in the initial business plan. Considering the better than expected performance to date in terms of reported profitability, the Servicer likely revised its expectations of future collections downwards. Excluding actual collections, the Servicer’s expected future collections from March 2023 amount to EUR 1,342.9 million. The updated DBRS Morningstar BBB (sf) rating stresses assume a haircut of 23.4% to the Servicer’s updated business plan, considering future expected collections.

Considering the faster than expected collections and the high profitability ratio registered since issuance as well as the increased subordination, the rated notes now pass higher rating stresses in the cash flow analysis. However, considering the early stage of the transaction DBRS Morningstar does not yet deem this performance trend to be sustainable in the medium to long term, and confirmed the current rating assigned to the Class A Notes. Considering the consistent overperformance and the high profitability level of the transaction, a Positive rating trend was assigned to the Class A Notes.

The final maturity date of the transaction is April 2042.

Sensitivity Analysis: To assess the impact of changing the transaction parameters on the credit rating, DBRS Morningstar considered the following stress scenarios as compared with the parameters used to determine the credit rating (the base case):

-- Recovery rates used: Cumulative base case recovery amount of approximately EUR 1,027.9 million at the BBB (sf) stress level, a 5% and 10% decrease in the base case recovery rate.
-- DBRS Morningstar concludes that a hypothetical decrease of the recovery rate by 5%, ceteris paribus, would lead to a confirmation on the Class A Notes at BBB (sf).
-- DBRS Morningstar concludes that a hypothetical decrease of the recovery rate by 10%, ceteris paribus, would lead to a downgrade on the Class A Notes to BB (high) (sf).
The conditions that lead to the assignment of a Negative or Positive trend are generally resolved within a 12-month period. DBRS Morningstar’s outlooks and ratings are monitored.
