Rating Action:

Moody's places 404 classes of legacy US RMBS on review for downgrade

15 Apr 2020

Approximately $5.88 billion of asset-backed securities affected

NOTE: On May 8, 2020, the press release was corrected as follows: the List of Affected Credit Ratings accessible via hyperlink from this press release was corrected to change the Releasing Office information for lead analyst Siddharth Lal to Toronto - Moody's Canada Inc., and the third, fourth, ninth, and tenth paragraphs were added to the Regulatory Disclosures section. Revised release follows.

New York, April 15, 2020 -- Moody's Investors Service, ("Moody's") has placed the ratings of 356 classes from 240 RMBS transactions issued between 1999 and 2007 on review for downgrade. In addition, Moody's has downgraded and placed on review for further downgrade the ratings of 48 classes from 46 RMBS transactions. These bonds have a weak interest recoupment mechanism that subordinates the reimbursement of unpaid interest. The transactions are backed by subprime, Alt-A, and scratch and dent mortgages.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The rating action reflects the heightened risk of interest loss in light of slowing US economic activity and increased unemployment due to the coronavirus outbreak. In its analysis, Moody's considered the sensitivity of the bonds' ratings to the magnitude of projected interest shortfalls under a baseline and stressed scenarios. In addition, today's downgrade of certain bond ratings to Baa3 (sf) is due to the sensitivity of the ratings to even a single period of missed interest payment, and these bonds remain on review for further downgrade pending additional assessment of the magnitude and likelihood of potential interest shortfalls.

The bonds placed on review have a weak interest recoupment mechanism, which means that a missed interest payment will likely result in a permanent interest loss, negatively impacting their ratings. Unpaid interest owed to bonds with a weak interest recoupment mechanism is reimbursed from the excess interest often only after the overcollateralization has built to a pre-specified target amount. In transactions whose overcollateralization has already been reduced or depleted due to poor performance, any such missed interest payments to these tranches is unlikely to be repaid. This risk of this occurring in the current environment is significantly elevated.

Because of the advancing mechanism included in most RMBS transactions, interest shortfalls on bonds are generally related to recoupment of advances by the servicer. Common triggers for recoupment of advances are the servicer deeming the advances to be non-recoverable, modification, liquidation of a delinquent loan, or transfer of servicing. The severe disruption in borrower incomes due to the coronavirus outbreak has led servicers to offer borrower relief in the form of forbearance of mortgage payments, which the servicers advance to the trusts. Depending on the strength and timing of the economic recovery, the loans of many borrowers on such forbearance plans may eventually need to be modified, with servicers recouping their advances at the time of modification. The servicer is entitled to reimbursement from cash collected on all loans in the associated RMBS pool. The servicer's right to reimburse itself is senior to the claim of the bonds. Recoupment of advances for a large number of delinquent borrowers within a few months could result in a reduction in interest funds available to the bondholders, causing interest shortfalls that, in many cases, will be permanent once incurred. The magnitude of funds advanced, and subsequently recouped, could be in the range of three to 12 months of monthly payments for each delinquent borrower.

During the review period, Moody's will consider additional factors that impact the likelihood and magnitude of interest shortfalls such as updated performance information, and structural factors such as level of overcollateralization, excess cashflow available to cover shortfalls, prior payment pattern, and paydown on the bonds. The final ratings could range from low investment grade for bonds that are expected to incur only a small interest loss even in a stressed scenario, to below investment grade for bonds that are expected to incur a permanent and material interest loss in an expected scenario.

Our analysis has considered the increased uncertainty relating to the effect of the coronavirus outbreak on the US economy as well as the effects of the announced government measures which were put in place to contain the virus. We regard the coronavirus outbreak as a social risk under our ESG framework, given the substantial implications for public health and safety. It is a global health shock, which makes it extremely difficult to provide an economic assessment. On March 25th, we revised our baseline growth forecast and now expect real GDP in the US to contract by 2.0% in 2020. The degree of uncertainty around our forecasts is unusually high.

PRINCIPAL METHODOLOGY

The principal methodology used in these ratings was "US RMBS Surveillance Methodology" published in February 2019 and available at https://www.moodys.com/researchdocumentcontentpage.aspx?docid=PBS_1127300. Alternatively, please see the Rating Methodologies page on www.moodys.com for a copy of this methodology.

Factors that would lead to an upgrade or downgrade of the ratings:

Ratings in the US RMBS sector remain exposed to the high level of macroeconomic uncertainty, and in particular the unemployment rate. We expect unemployment rate to rise to about 9% in the second quarter, and decline thereafter with a slow pace of rehiring, resulting in an unemployment rate of around 6.5% by the end of 2020. However, there is significant uncertainty around this forecast and risks are firmly to the downside. House prices are another key driver of US RMBS performance. Lower increases than Moody's expects or decreases could lead to negative rating actions. Finally, performance of RMBS continues to remain highly dependent on servicer procedures. Any change resulting from servicing transfers or other policy or regulatory change can impact the performance of these transactions.
