Rating Action:

Moody's downgrades senior notes of five Spanish ABS transactions

30 Nov 2011

Downgrades follow expected amendments that increase linkage with originating bank

Frankfurt am Main, November 30, 2011 -- Moody's Investors Service has today downgraded to Aa3 (sf) from Aaa (sf) the ratings of senior notes issued by (i) FTPYME TDA 7, FTA; (ii) TDA EMPRESAS 1, FTA; (iii) TDA EMPRESAS 2, FTA; (iv) IM SABADELL EMPRESAS 3, FTA; and (v) GC SABADELL EMPRESAS 4, FTA. The first four are Spanish SME ABS transactions, while the last is a Spanish lease ABS transaction.

All affected ratings are listed at the end of ratings rationale section of the press release.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Today's rating action follows expected amendments to the affected transactions' documents, which will weaken the rating criteria to a minimum rating of P-2 from a minimum rating of P-1 for the transactions' (i) account banks; and (ii) institutions holding the collateral posting. This modification increases the linkage between the transactions and Banco Sabadell (A3/P-2), which is the current account bank for the affected transactions, and the expected losses under the senior notes due to additional commingling risk.

- LINKAGE TO BANCO SABADELL

The downgrade of the senior notes reflects the inability of the transactions to achieve a Aaa (sf) rating as the transactions' accounts currently remain at a P-2 rated entity (and are expected to remain at such a rated entity as per the proposed amendments), which is not in line with Moody's published rating criteria ("The Temporary Use of Cash In Structured Transactions: Eligible Investment Guidelines"). The negative effects due to this increased linkage to Banco Sabadell cannot be fully offset by increased credit support and Moody's concluded that the highest achievable rating is Aa3 (sf) for the affected transactions.

Given that the transactions' accounts will remain at Banco Sabadell and will not be transferred, both collections and reserve funds in all transactions will be exposed to commingling risk in the event of a potential default of Banco Sabadell. During the review process, Moody's tested various scenarios of additional commingling loss, focusing in particular on the effects of the potential unavailability of the reserve fund to the credit and liquidity profile of the transaction upon Banco Sabadell's hypothetical insolvency.

Banco Sabadell is currently holding the reinvestment accounts or treasury accounts of the affected transactions, which are the accounts holding the collections received from the securitised assets during a quarterly period. At the same time, the affected transactions' reserve funds are also deposited in their Banco Sabadell accounts. The reserve funds in the affected transactions provide credit enhancement and the sole liquidity sources. At present, the reserve fund accounts for the following percentage of the outstanding notes balance in each transaction:

- 8% FTPYME TDA 7, FTA;

- 11% in TDA EMPRESAS 1, FTA;

- 36% in TDA EMPRESAS 2, FTA;

- 29% in IM SABADELL EMPRESAS 3, FTA;

- 20% in GC SABADELL EMPRESAS 4, FTA.

Banco Sabadell acts as swap provider in IM SABADELL EMPRESAS 3, FTA and GC SABADELL EMPRESAS 4, FTA. Under the expected amendments, the collateral posting required under the swap documentation (following the breach of the first level of ratings) will also remain in an institution rated at least at P-2.

- KEY REVISED ASSUMPTIONS IN IM SABADELL EMPRESAS 3, FTA

Moody's has reassessed its lifetime default expectation for the collateral pool underpinning the IM SABADELL EMPRESAS 3, FTA transaction. The portfolio includes a large exposure to a few borrowers, with the largest borrower representing 10% of the portfolio, and the sum of the largest 5 and 10 borrowers representing 26% and 38%, respectively.

Moody's stressed the default probability it assumes for these large borrowers, which represented more than 3% of the current pool, and assumed their default probabilities to be equivalent to a Caa2 rating. In addition, the rating agency took into account the transaction's exposure to the real-estate market (41% of the current pool as of September 2011 according to Moody's classification). Consequently, these revised assumptions have been translated into a 25% cumulative mean default assumption for the current portfolio. This implies a revised cumulative mean default for the entire transaction (since closing) equal to 15% of the total securitised pool, compared with 14.5% at closing.

Given the heterogeneity of the portfolio (with an effective number of borrowers of 46), Moody's used a Monte Carlo simulation to derive the gross default distribution. As a result of the simulation, the coefficient of variation reached 45%, compared with 60% at closing. The recovery rate and prepayment rate remain at 50% and 5% assumption at closing.

The reassessment of IM SABADELL EMPRESAS 3, FTA also took into account (i) the interest rate swap provided by Banco Sabadell; and (ii) a variety of stress scenarios conducted by Moody's, in which there is no current swap agreement with guaranteed excess spread. As such, Moody's analysis encompasses the assessment of stressed scenarios.

Except for IM SABADELL EMPRESAS 3, FTA, key modelling assumptions, sensitivities, cash-flow analysis and stress scenarios have not been updated for the affected transactions as the rating action has been primarily driven by increased disruption and commingling risk following the non transfer of the various accounts from Banco Sabadell. Should Moody's further downgrade Banco Sabadell and the accounts not being transferred, the ratings of the five affected transactions would be negatively impacted.

During the review, Moody's used its excel-based cash flow model, Moody's ABSROM™, as part of its quantitative analysis of the transaction. In the review of IM SABADELL EMPRESAS 3, FTA, Moody's used CDOROM to model the cash flows and determine the loss for each tranche. The Moody's CDOROM™ is a Monte Carlo simulation, which takes the Moody's default probabilities as input.

The methodologies used in these ratings were Moody's Approach to Rating CDOs of SMEs in Europe, published in February 2007 and 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. Please see the Credit Policy page on www.moodys.com for a copy of these methodologies.
