Euro 200 million of Notes downgraded
London, 20 October 2010 -- Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the following Notes issued by
Island Refinancing S.r.l. (the "Issuer") (amounts
reflect initial outstandings):
EUR 62 million Class B - 2007 Asset-Backed Floating Rate
Notes due 2025, downgraded to Baa3 (sf); previously on 4 March
2010 Baa1 (sf) placed under review for possible downgrade
EUR 60 million Class C - 2007 Asset-Backed Floating Rate
Notes due 2025, downgraded to B1 (sf); previously on 4 March
2010 Ba2 (sf) placed under review for possible downgrade
EUR 32 million Class D - 2007 Asset-Backed Floating Rate
Notes due 2025, downgraded to B3 (sf); previously on 4 March
2010 B1 (sf) placed under review for possible downgrade
EUR 46 million Class X - 2007 Asset-Backed Floating Rate
Notes due 2025, downgraded to Ca (sf); previously on 4 March
2010 Caa2 (sf) placed under review for possible downgrade
The Class A Note ratings were not affected by today's rating action and
Moody's has not assigned ratings to the Class E Notes or Class F Notes.
All the ratings of the Issuer are (sf) ratings.
Today's rating review action has been prompted by the slower than expected
collection rate observed in the securitised portfolio backing the Notes.
The timing of collections versus the Initial Business Plan (please see
the previous press release dated 4 March 2010 for more information on
this and describing the transaction) determines when the Notes' interest
deferral mechanism is triggered.
Interest payments can be deferred for any class of Notes provided it is
not the most senior class of Notes then outstanding. The test to
defer Class B Notes interest is met when on two consecutive payment dates
the cumulative net collections received are less than 60.0%
of the cumulative expected collections under the Initial Business Plan
(the "Collection Threshold"). The Collection Threshold for the
Class C Notes is 75.0%, for the Class D Notes 83.0%
and for the Class X Notes it is 95%.
Interest deferral is currently occurring on all Notes except the Class
A Notes. Moody's believes that there is a high probability of continuing
interest deferral on the subordinated Notes for the foreseeable future.
As per the structure, Noteholders which do not receive their coupon
on time, will not receive interest on the missed interest.
Therefore, Noteholders directly bear carry costs which contribute
to increased expected losses on the affected Classes of Notes.
At the same time, the amounts which are not being disbursed to Class
B, C, D and X Noteholders as interest, are instead being
used to turbo amortise Class A principal which is beneficial for Class
The principal methodology used in rating Island Refinancing S.r.l.
was "Update on Moody's Real Estate Analysis for CMBS Transaction in EMEA"
rating methodology published in June 2005. Moody's also used a
bond liability cash flow model, which follows the general principles
of modelling cashflows as set out in "Cash Flow Analysis in EMEA RMBS:
Testing Structural Features with the MARCO Model (Moody's Analyser
of Residential Cash Flows)", and which incorporates additional features
to model the interest payment deferral and other structural features of
the Notes. Other methodologies and factors that may have been considered
in the process of rating this issuer can also be found on Moody's website.
In addition, Moody's publishes a weekly summary of structured finance
credit, ratings and methodologies, available to all registered
users of our website, at www.moodys.com/SFQuickCheck.
Moody's base case scenario assumes that net collections throughout
the entire life of the transaction will be approximately 5% lower
than the Initial Business Plan. The rationale for this is that
the net collection scenario Moody's uses does not give any value to unsecured
claims, and also it makes an allowance for potentially higher costs
than anticipated by the Initial Business Plan. The reported performance
over the past 5 interest periods has shown profitability of 106%
on average per claim.
In terms of timing of collections, Moody's assumed in the
base case that the net collection rate over the next eighteen months will
remain at or around current collection levels. Thereafter,
and until the final legal maturity of the Notes, Moody's has
assumed that remaining aggregate net collections will be received on a
roughly constant basis. Moody's modelling approach allows
for variance around these levels on a probability weighted basis,
and the analysis also included a review of the effects of varying the
timings as well as level of overall collection levels through the remaining
life of the transaction.
In the base case scenario, Classes B, C, D and X Notes
will suffer increased losses when compared with modelling the Initial
Business Plan or any updated business plan due to the interest deferral
dynamics referred to above. Those Classes are expected to recover
varying proportions of the principal invested in addition to recovering
the interest deferred. Moody's believes that the Class X Notes
may potentially experience significant losses. On the other hand,
the Class A Notes are currently benefiting from faster than anticipated
redemption, and as such the interest deferral is credit positive
for those Notes.
Moody's base case in future, will be amended in light of significant
changes in 1) recovery timings, 2) recovery profitability and 3)
movements in Euribor. The ratings assigned currently permit some
variance around Moody's base case, and as such minor changes
will not in and of themselves necessarily result in a revision of the
The last Performance Overview for this transaction was published on 28
September 2010. Moody's Investors Service did not receive
or take into account a third party due diligence report on the underlying
assets or financial instruments related to the monitoring of this transaction
in the past 6 months. Moody's was unable to form a refined view
of the collections performance to date since a claim by claim analysis
of the Initial Business Plan versus actual experience was not available.
As a result Moody's analysis has relied on aggregate profitability
to date, and has made assumptions about the estimated timing of
expected collections going forwards.
The rating has been disclosed to the rated entity or its designated agents
and issued with no amendment resulting from that disclosure.
Information sources used to prepare the credit rating are the following:
