Rating Action:

Moody's assigns provisional ratings to notes to be issued by Closed Joint Stock Company "Mortgage agent Absolut 2", Russian RMBS

Global Credit Research - 18 Oct 2013

Approximately RUB 7,728.00 million of Debt Securities affected

Frankfurt am Main, October 18, 2013 -- Moody's has assigned provisional ratings to Notes to be issued by Closed Joint Stock Company "Mortgage agent Absolut 2":

....RUB[7,728] million Class A Residential Mortgage Backed Fixed Rate Notes due 2041, Assigned (P)Baa3 (sf)

....RUB[1,472] million Class B Notes were not rated by Moody's.

This transaction is the second securitisation of mortgages originated by Absolut Bank (B1). The portfolio consists of the Russian residential mortgage loans serviced by Absolut Bank. DeltaCredit Bank (Baa3/P-3) will be acting as back-up servicer in the transaction.

The rating takes into account the credit quality of the underlying mortgage loan pool, from which Moody's determined the MILAN Credit Enhancement and the portfolio expected loss, as well as the transaction structure and legal considerations. The expected portfolio loss of 7.5% and the MILAN required credit enhancement of 23% serve as input parameters for Moody's cash flow model and tranching model, which is based on a probabilistic lognormal distribution as described in the report "The Lognormal Method Applied to ABS Analysis", published in July 2000.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The most significant driver for the MILAN Credit Enhancement number, which is similar to other MILAN CE numbers in the Russian RMBS transactions was the limited amount of historical information available from the originator and the fact that for about [54.1]% of the borrowers income was verified using forms provided by the bank rather than official tax forms. The main driver for the expected loss, which is also in line with expected losses assumed for other Russian RMBS transactions, was the limited historical data available on the originator's portfolio. The weighted average current loan-to-value (LTV) of [56.3]% is in line with the LTV observed in other Russian RMBS transactions.

The transaction benefits from an amortising reserve fund initially sized at 2% of the notes at closing and building up to 4.5% of the initial notes balance using the excess spread. The reserve fund is replenished before the interest payment on the unrated Class B notes. Subject to conditions such as no draw on the reserve fund, no unpaid principal deficiency, and no servicer default, the reserve fund may amortise at 4.5% of the outstanding notes down to a floor of 0.6% of the initial note balance.

The provisional ratings address the expected loss posed to investors by the legal final maturity of the Notes. Moody's issues provisional ratings in advance of the final sale of securities, but these ratings represent only Moody's preliminary credit opinions. Upon a conclusive review of the transaction and associated documentation, Moody's will endeavour to assign definitive ratings to the Notes. A definitive rating may differ from a provisional rating. Other non-credit risks have not been addressed, but may have a significant effect on yield to investors.

New Rating Assignments

The V Score for this transaction is High, which is in line with the score assigned for the Russian RMBS sector. The High V-Score reflects uncertainty associated with legal and regulatory environment in the sector, limited experience of the originator in the securitisation market, and limited performance data available for the book of the originator. 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 accordingly to the report "V Scores and Parameter Sensitivities in the Major EMEA RMBS Sectors" published in April 2009.

Moody's Parameter Sensitivities: Even if MILAN Credit Enhancement was increased from 23% to 27.6% and the portfolio expected loss was remained at 7.5%, the model output indicates that the Class A notes would have achieved Baa3.

Moody's Parameter Sensitivities provide a quantitative/model-indicated calculation of the number of rating notches that a Moody's 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. Parameter Sensitivities for the typical EMEA RMBS transaction are calculated by stressing key variable inputs in Moody's primary rating model.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Moody's Approach to Rating RMBS Using the MILAN Framework published in May 2013. Please see the Credit Policy page on www.moodys.com for a copy of this methodology.

Other Factors used in this rating are described in Key Legal and Structural Rating Issues in Russian Securitisation Transactions published in June 2007.

In rating this transaction, Moody's used a cash flow model to model the cash flows and determine the loss for each tranche. The cash flow model evaluates all default scenarios that are then weighted considering the probabilities of the lognormal distribution assumed for the portfolio default rate. In each default scenario, the corresponding loss for each class of notes is calculated given the incoming cash flows from the assets and the outgoing payments to third parties and noteholders. Therefore, the expected loss or EL for each tranche is the sum product of (i) the probability of occurrence of each default scenario; and (ii) the loss derived from the cash flow model in each default scenario for each tranche.

As such, Moody's analysis encompasses the assessment of stressed scenarios.
