Rating Action:

Moody's Investors Service assigns definitive credit ratings to Italian RMBS notes issued by BPL Mortgages S.r.l.

28 Feb 2011

Approximately EUR 3,411.8 million of debt security affected

Milan, February 28, 2011 -- Moody's Investors Service has today assigned definitive credit ratings to the following class of notes issued by BPL Mortgages S.r.l.:

Aaa (sf) to EUR 3,411,500 Class A - 2009 Residential Mortgage-Backed Floating Rate Notes due 2055 ("Class A notes")

Moody's has not assigned any rating to EUR 578,624,000 Class B - 2009 Residential Mortgage-Backed Notes due 2055 ("Class B notes" and together with Class A notes the "Notes")

RATINGS RATIONALE

The transaction was initially not rated by Moody's. Moody's rating analysis of the notes is based on the transaction structure as of today: the Class A notes issued at closing amounted to EUR 3,411.8 million and will start to amortize at the next payment date (May 31st, 2011). Funds available for the repayment of Class A notes are today equal to 22.05% of Class A notes.

The transaction represents the fourth series of notes issued by BPL Mortgages srl and one of the six RMBS transaction originated by banks belonging to the Banco Popolare group. The assets supporting the notes, which amount to around EUR 3,269.4 million (at November 2010), consists of mortgage loans extended to individuals 58.7% and SMEs 41.3% backed by first economic lien on residential and commercial properties located in Italy. Loans have been originated by Banca Popolare di Crema SpA, Banca Popolare di Cremona SpA , Banca Popolare di Lodi SpA , Banca Popolare di Novara SpA, Banca Popolare di Verona -- S. Geminiano e S. Prospero SpA, Credito Bergamasco SpA and Cassa di Risparmio di Lucca Pisa e Livorno SpA. Each of the portfolios will serviced by the relevant originator and a back up servicer will be appointed if Banco Popolare's rating falls below Baa3 and/or the stake Banco Popolare holds in each of the servicers falls below 77%.

The ratings of the notes take into account the credit quality of the underlying mortgage loan pool, from which Moody's determined the MILAN Aaa Credit Enhancement and the portfolio expected loss. The key drivers for the 13% MILAN Aaa Credit Enhancement for the individual portion of the portfolio, which is higher than for other Italian RMBS transactions, are (i) the presence of loans that are in arrears for more than one month representing approximately 5% of the pool, (ii) missing data on the occupancy type, iii) a high proportion of loans granted for equity release (32%) and (iv) the presence of loans currently enjoying a interest and principal payment holiday (2.3%).

The expected default rate for the SMEs sub-portfolio was determined according to the methodology described in the report "Refining the ABS SME Approach: Moody's Probability of Default assumptions in the rating analysis of granular Small and Mid-sized Enterprise portfolios in EMEA" published in March 2009 and "Moody's Approach to Rating Granular SME Transactions in Europe, Middle East and Africa", published in June 2007. The most important parameter for the expected default rate of the SMEs sub-portfolio is the mean default probability assumed for each of the SME loans derived via the analysis of the characteristics of the loan-by-loan portfolio information. We expect the average default probability of the pool to be a Ba3/B1 Moody's equivalent (translating into 11.90% cumulative default rate over the weighted average life of 4.4 years of the portfolio).

For the aggregate portfolio, the combined expected portfolio loss of 5.6% on the portfolio current balance (equivalent to 6.6% of the portfolio balance at closing) and the equivalent MILAN Aaa required Credit Enhancement of 19% served as input parameters for Moody's cash flow model, which was based on a probabilistic lognormal distribution as described in the report "The Lognormal Method Applied to ABS Analysis", published in September 2000. The expected loss which is well above the average for the Italian RMBS sector takes into account the (i) the high portion of loans (41.3)% extended to SMEs, (ii) the high amount of defaults that have been experienced so far, (iii) the low recovery rate shown by the historical data provided on the originators, (iv) benchmarking with comparable transactions in the Italian market and (v) the negative outlook we have on Italian RMBS. The loss distribution for the two sub-portfolios were combined in order to achieve the aggregate loss distribution of the portfolio that was used in the cash flow analysis to determine the rating of the Class A notes.

The structure will benefit from a swap, provided by Banca IMI (Aa3/P-1), which provides a guaranteed margin above Euribor of 140 bps,The swap complies with Moody's standard swap de-linkage criteria, however, as the swap counterparty could becomes subject to Italian insolvency proceedings, and the swaps could terminate by operation of law there is additional linkage for the notes to the rating of the swap counterparty.

Liquidity in the transaction comes from principal to pay interest mechanism, and from the cash reserve, which is equal to 7% of the Notes.

Moody's assigned a Composite V Score for this transaction of Low/Medium based on Moody's V Score rating methodology as published in the report "V-Scores and Parameter Sensitivities in the Major EMEA RMBS Sectors" published in April 2009, which is in line with the V score assigned for the Italian RMBS sector. Three sub components underlying the V Score deviate from the average for the Italian RMBS sector: i) "Issuer/Sponsor/Originator's Historical Performance Variability" because of the poor performance of the securitized portfolio since closing and of previous deals originated by banks belonging to the Banco Popolare group, ii) "Disclosure of Securitization Collateral Pool Characteristic" which is assessed at Medium, given that historically some information in the servicer report of the transaction were not correct and resulted in erroneous calculations in the application of the priority of payment (corrected by the servicer) and iii) "Analytic Complexity" which is at Medium driven by the fact that the transaction comprises two sub pools: this is not standard in the market segment and required the use of two different methodologies. V Scores are a relative assessment of the quality of available credit information and of the degree of dependence on various assumptions used in determining the rating. High variability in key assumptions could expose a rating to more likelihood of rating changes.

Moody's Parameter Sensitivities: If the Expected Loss was increased from 5.6 % to 11.2%, the model output indicated that Classes A would have achieved Aa1 assuming that MILAN Aaa CE remained at 19% and all other factors remained the same. Moody's Parameter Sensitivity provide a quantitative/model-indicated calculation of the number of rating notches that a Moody's-rated structured finance security may vary if certain input parameters used in the initial rating process differed. The analysis assumes that the deal has not aged and is not intended to measure how the rating of the security might migrate over time, but rather how the initial rating of the security might have differed if key rating input parameters were varied. Qualitative factors are also taken into consideration in the ratings process, so the actual ratings that would be assigned in each case could vary from the information presented in the Parameter Sensitivity analysis.

The ratings address the expected loss posed to investors by the legal final maturity of the notes. In Moody's opinion, the structure allows for timely payment of interest and ultimate payment of principal with respect of the notes by the legal final maturity. Moody's ratings address only the credit risks associated with the transaction. Other non-credit risks have not been addressed, but may have a significant effect on yield to investors.

The principal methodologies used in this rating were Moody's Approach to Rating Italian RMBS, published in December 2004, Cash Flow Analysis in EMEA RMBS: Testing Structural Features with the MARCO Model (Moody's Analyser of Residential Cash Flows), published in January 2006 and Moody's Approach to Rating Granular SME Transactions in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Moody's Investors Service did not received a third party due diligence report on the underlying assets or financial instruments in this transaction.
