Moody´s rates Senior Shares issued by BV Financeira -- Fundo de Investimento em Direitos Creditórios IV, a Brazilian vehicle loan securitization

 The document has been translated in other languages

03 Aug 2010

Approximately R$2,000 Million of Senior Shares rated

Sao Paulo, August 03, 2010 -- Moody's America Latina (Moody's) has assigned provisional ratings of (P)Aa1.br (sf) Brazilian national scale rating and of (P)Ba1 (sf) global local currency rating to the senior shares to be issued by BV Financeira -- Fundo de Investimento em Direitos Creditórios IV (BV FIDC IV or the issuer), a securitization backed by a pool of vehicle loans originated by BV Financeira S.A. -- Crédito, Financiamento e Investimento (BV Financeira).

The ratings are based on the following principal factors:

- The 20% minimum credit enhancement in form of subordination supporting the senior shares;

- The 4.5% minimum excess spread;

- Retention of excess spread within the structure while senior shares remain outstanding, which increases available credit enhancement throughout the life of the transaction;

- The overall credit characteristics of the securitized pool of vehicle loans which benefits from BV Financeira´s established underwriting policy, fund eligibility criteria and concentration limits;

- The transaction structure and its legal framework, including the bankruptcy remoteness of the issuer and well-established Brazilian laws and regulations; and

- The financial strength, operational quality and ability of BV Financeira, the originator and primary servicer, to service the underlying assets.

STRUCTURE

BV FIDC IV is a closed-ended FIDC and will issue senior shares and subordinated shares. The subordinated shares will be entirely retained by the seller. The final maturity of the senior shares is 36 months after issuance. The senior shares will accrue a floating-rate interest of CDI (Brazilian Interbank Rate) times an annual spread of 110%. The senior shares will pay 6 monthly principal and interest amortization payments starting on month 31 and ending on month 36 of the transaction. No interest or principal payments will be made to the subordinated shares as long as there are senior shares outstanding. No partial redemptions of subordinated shares are allowed at any time.

In order to insure timely repayment of principal and interest payments on the senior shares on the final payment date, the trustee will reinvest cash flows arising from the vehicle loan portfolio into eligible liquid assets as the transaction approaches the scheduled amortization dates.

The transaction structure includes triggers leading to revision events. Should a revision event occur, revolving purchases of new vehicle loans are immediately stopped and a shareholders meeting is called at which point the shareholders may decide to place the fund into early liquidation. Key revision event triggers include:

- Breach of the minimum subordination level (20%);

- Breach of minimum excess spread (4.5%);

- Downgrade of the senior shares rated by Moody´s below the initial Aa1.br (sf) /Ba1 (sf) rating level;

POOL CHARACTERISTICS AND SERVICING

The collateral backing the senior shares consists of a pool of vehicle loans that meet the fund's eligibility criteria including:

i. final maturity of vehicle loans must be before final maturity date of the senior shares

ii. maximum pool concentration per type of vehicle: motorcycle 10%, heavy vehicles 20% and sedans up to 100%;

iii. sum of installments should not be more than BRL50,000 per obligor (companies or individuals).

All securitized loans must conform to BV Financeira´s loan underwriting criteria, including the following key obligor requirements:

i. be at least 18 years old;

ii. maintain a clean record on the main credit bureau agencies (Serasa and SPC);

iii. provide a two-year employment history (one-year employment history for motorcycles);

iv. have no record of bankruptcy, repossession or foreclosure;

v. maximum debt-to-income: 30% (all monthly debt & rent payments to monthly gross income);

Servicing of loans is performed entirely in-house by BV Financeira and benefits from established systems and processes.

Banco Bradesco S.A. (Bradesco, which Moody's rates A1 for global local currency deposits and Aaa.br on Brazilian national scale) will act as master servicer (custodiante) of the transaction as well as Payment Bank. Its responsibilities include, among other duties, verifying that all receivables purchased by the fund meet the eligibility criteria, monitoring the early amortization triggers, in addition to managing all of the issuer's daily financial and operating activities.

Votorantim Asset Management DTVM Ltda will be the trustee.

THE ORIGINATOR

BV Financeira is the fourth largest originator of vehicle loans in Brazil, ranking after Itaú Unibanco S.A, Banco Bradesco S.A and Santander, with a total loan portfolio of about BRL25.6 billion as of June 2010. It is wholly owned subsidiary of Banco Votorantim S.A. BV Financeira operates through approximately 20,000 certified car dealers mainly located in the South and Southeast regions of Brazil, and focuses primarily on used sedans and sport-utility vehicles.

BV Financeira is fully controlled by Banco Votorantim S.A. (which Moody's rates A3 for global local currency deposits and Aaa.br on Brazilian national scale).

Headquartered in Sao Paulo, BV is one of the largest banks of the Brazilian banking system, posting R$94.8 billion in total assets and R$8 billion in equity as of March 31, 2010. In January 2009, the group settled a strategic partnership with Banco do Brasil, a federally owned institution and largest bank in the country, which now holds 50.00% in total equity capital of Banco Votorantim. This transaction was approved by regulatory authorities in September 2009. BV is involved in multiple lines of business such as consumer finance (mostly vehicles financing), corporate banking, capital markets, brokerage, treasury, international business and asset management.

RATING METHODOLOGY

A key methodology used in rating the transaction is "Moody's Approach to Rating U.S. Auto Loan-Backed Securities," which can be found at www.moodys.com in the Rating Methodologies sub-directory under the Research & Ratings tab. Other methodologies and factors that may have been considered in the process of rating this issue can also be found in the Rating Methodologies sub-directory on Moody's website.

In assigning the (P)Ba1 (sf) / (P)Aa1.br (sf) ratings to the Senior Shares, Moody's considered the key sources of credit enhancement -- subordination and excess spread -- in a stressed scenario with view on the historical performance of the auto loan assets. In addition, Moody's considered risk factors common to all auto loan transactions such as credit losses and lost cash flows due to loan prepayments and re-financings, funding cost increases and transaction expenses.

These risk factors were stressed to evaluate the impact on Senior Shareholders.

This transaction was rated on both a probabilistic simulation approach to evaluate losses under a large number of scenarios, as well as on a deterministic basis to assess how the transaction structure would perform in simultaneous stresses of the risk factors such as a combined increase in default rate, prepayments and interest rates. Moody's observes the impact on the resulting cash flows available for servicing the Senior Shares, and calculate whether the promised target return of 110% of CDI is met.

In rating the transaction, Moody´s considered a base case of historical portfolio performance including credit losses of 5.5% p.a. and a prepayment rate of 15% p.a.

The break even credit loss rate is 15% per annum (or 2.7x base case annual credit losses) at which point the senior shares start to experience losses, assuming a stressed interest rate (CDI) environment of 15%, prepayment rate of 15% per annum and minimum discount rate of 145% of CDI.
