Rating Action:

Moody's Investors Service assigns definitive ratings to the Italian RMBS Notes issued by Berica 9 Residential MBS S.r.l.

21 Apr 2011

Approximately EUR 931.8 million of debt security affected

Milan, April 21, 2011 -- Moody's Investors Service has today assigned definitive long term ratings to Italian RMBS notes issued by Berica 9 Residential MBS S.r.l.:

Aaa (sf) to the Euro 210.0 million Class A1 Residential Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes due December 2054

Aaa (sf) to the Euro 260.0 million Class A2 Residential Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes due December 2054

Aaa (sf) to the Euro 461.8 million Class A3 Residential Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes due December 2054

Moody's has not assigned any rating to Euro 193.2 million Class B Residential Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes due December 2054.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The ratings of the notes take into account the credit quality of the underlying mortgage loan pool, the dynamic delinquency data and the vintage data for defaults and recoveries received from the originators. The mortgage pool was originated by Banca Popolare di Vicenza S.c.p.a. ("BPVI"), Cassa di Risparmio di Prato S.p.A. ("CRP") and Banca Nuova S.p.A. ("BN") All the originators belong to the Banca Popolare di Vicenza S.c.p.a. group ("BPVI group"). Based on the different data sources Moody's has determined the Aaa MILAN Credit Enhancement and the expected loss for the portfolio. The transaction structure and legal considerations have been considered in Moody's cash flow analysis.

The transaction represents the ninth securitisation of receivables originated by the BPVI group (Not publicly rated). The assets supporting the notes, which amount to around EUR 1,122.7 million, consists of residential mortgage loans on properties located in Italy. The transaction benefits from a cash reserve equal to 3.0% of the asset balance that primarily can cover interest shortfall on the rated notes and items senior thereto, while it only serves as credit enhancement when the Class A notes are fully redeemed or at final legal maturity. BPVI will service the portfolio sold by: BPVI, CRP (which was merged into BPVI in December 2010) and the loans that were originated by the 12 ex BN branches (which were merged into BPVI in February 2011) in the Lazio region. New BN will service the loans that were originated by BN, excluding the loans coming from the 12 branches in the Lazio region. BPVI (Not Rated) will act as Master Servicer for the whole portfolio and if BPVI loses the requisites defined as "Master Servicer Eligibility Requirements" a back up servicer will be appointed. The Back-up Servicer Facilitator, Securitisation Services S.p.A., facilitates the search for and the appointment of a back-up servicer in case it would be needed. Furthermore, should the Servicer not be able to prepare the Servicer Report at any payment date, continuity of payments for rated notes will be assured by the computation agent preparing the payment report on estimates: in this case only the amounts due to the rated notes and items in priority thereto will be paid.

The expected portfolio loss of 2.7% of the initial asset balance and the MILAN Aaa required Credit Enhancement of 12.0% served as input parameters for Moody's cash flow model, which is based on a probabilistic lognormal distribution as described in the report "The Lognormal Method Applied to ABS Analysis", published in September 2000.

The key drivers for the portfolio expected loss, which is in line with the Italian average for the sector, are: (i) seven years of vintage data for defaults based on loans with similar characteristics as the ones in the portfolio; (ii) the vintage data shows that the default rates experienced by the BPVI group are correlated with the market wide default rates for Italian residential mortgage loans; (iii) the negative outlook Moody's has on Italian RMBS; (iv) six years of dynamic delinquency data for loan with similar characteristics as the portfolio (v) the vintage data for recoveries only covers closed files and therefore the recovery rates and recovery lag has mainly been based on benchmarking with comparable banks.

The key drivers for the MILAN Aaa Credit Enhancement number, which is slightly higher than other Italian RMBS transactions are: (i) around 53.1% of the borrowers in the pool are single borrowers, which is slightly higher than other Italian transactions; (ii) 7.7% of the portfolio consist of loans that are backed by a property which is not the borrowers main residence; (iii) Moody's has considered that there could be other characteristics of the pool which have not been properly captured in the MILAN model and therefore the MILAN number has been qualitatively adjusted in order to generate a loss distribution with a certain level of volatility or with other words to account for a higher probability of "fat tail" events with respect to the expected loss.

The structure benefits from two interest rate swaps, provided by J.P. Morgan Securities Ltd (Aa1/P-1): (i) a fixed-floating rate swap, which is hedging around 29.8% of the pool that consists of fixed rate loans and (ii) a basis swap whereby the issuer is paying the three-month EURIBOR received on the floating rate loans, 65.7% of the portfolio, and receives the three-month EURIBOR due under the notes. Finally 4.5% of the portfolio comprise "option loans", where the borrower has an option to switch between a fixed rate or a floating rate at predefined dates, usually every three years. The option loans are not hedged and therefore Moody's has made a haircut to the interest that the pool is generating in order to consider the risk that these loans could all switch to a fixed rate. The swaps are substantially compliant with Moody's standard swap de-linkage criteria.

Liquidity in the transaction comes from (i) the non-amortising cash reserve (equal to 3.0% of the initial pool balance), which normally works more like a liquidity ledger since it mainly covers interest on the rated notes, swap payments and senior fees during the life of the transactions and only serves as credit enhancement when the Class A notes are redeemed or at final legal maturity, and (ii) the principal to pay interest mechanism.

Moody's assigned a Composite V Score for this transaction of Low/Medium, which is in line with the V score assigned for the Italian RMBS sector. Two sub components of the transaction's V Score differ from the Italian RMBS sector score: (i) Quality of Historical Data for the Issuer/Sponsor/Originator which is assessed to be at Medium, higher than the Low/Medium sector's average, given that the recovery data was only provided on loans where the recovery process has been finalised and therefore Moody's had rely on benchmarking in order to estimate the recovery rate and recovery lag for the expected loss and (ii) "Issuer/Sponsor/Originator's Historical Performance Variability" which is assessed to be Low/Medium, higher than the Low sector's average, because of the mixed performance of previous deals originated by the BPVI group. 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. The V Score has been assigned according to the report "V-Scores and Parameter Sensitivities in the Major EMEA RMBS Sectors" published in April 2009.

Moody's Parameter Sensitivities: If the expected loss increased to 8.1% from 2.7%, the model output indicated that Classes A1 and A2 would still have achieved Aaa even if the MILAN Aaa CE increased to 19.2% from 12.0% and all other factors remained the same, while the Class A3 note would achieve Aa1 in the abovementioned scenario. 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 definitive 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 at par with respect to the Class A1, Class A2 and Class A3 notes on or before the legal final maturity date of the notes. 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 and Cash Flow Analysis in EMEA RMBS: Testing Structural Features with the MARCO Model (Moody's Analyser of Residential Cash Flows) published in January 2006.

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