Rating Action:

Moody's takes multiple rating actions on Spanish multicedulas

01 Aug 2014

London, 01 August 2014 -- Moody's Investors Service announced today that it has upgraded the rating of ten Spanish multi-issuer covered bonds (SMICBs), downgraded ten series, confirmed twenty-two series and affirmed three series.

Please click this link http://www.moodys.com/viewresearchdoc.aspx?docid=PBS_SF376259 for the List of Affected Credit Ratings.

This list is an integral part of this press release and identifies each affected issuer.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Today's rating actions incorporate the following recent developments on Spanish bank ratings including (i) the upgrade of Banco de Caja Espana de Inversiones(Banco CEISS) from B3 (UNC) to B2, (ii) the confirmation of Unicaja Banco's Ba3 rating, (iii) the downgrade of NCG Banco S.A. from B3 (DNG) to Caa1, (iv) the downgrade of Banco Espirito Santo, S.A. from Ba3 (DNG) to B2 (DNG) and (v) placement of Catalunya Banc SA's rating on review for upgrade from B3 (DNG).

The credit quality of one issuer has been assessed through a credit estimate. This issuer participates in thirty one series with an average exposure of 15.5% and a maximum exposure of 30.8%. As part of its base case, Moody's has stressed large concentrations of single obligors bearing a credit estimate as described in "Updated Approach to the Usage of Credit Estimates in Rated Transactions," published in October 2009 and available at https://www.moodys.com/research/PBC_120461

Today's actions also take into account updated information on the underlying mortgage pools of participating issuers.

Moody's has upgraded the rating of ten series either because of an improvement in the expected loss of the SMICBs (as defined below) since Moody's last review and/or the resolution of the watch status of the rating of the participating issuers.

Moody's has downgraded the rating of ten series. In nine series the downgrades result from a significant exposure to issuers rated Caa1 or the issuer assessed through a credit estimate. Moody's notes that IM Cedulas 9, FTA has a 6% exposure to Banco Espirito Santo, whose rating is on review for downgrade. A two notch stress to this issuer's rating resulted in no material change to the expected loss for this series.

The downgrade of AyT Cedulas Cajas VIII, FTA- Sub Loan A to Caa1 (sf) results from a small interest shortfall caused by a mid-period transfer in 2012 of the related treasury account from Instituto de Credito Oficial to Barclays. This shortfall is not expected to be cured by scheduled maturity in November 2014, so the sub loan providers are unlikely to receive the promised principal and interest payments in full.

In three series Moody's has affirmed current ratings. These series exhibit no material change in the expected loss and in all of these series there are no participants on review upgrade, uncertain or downgrade.

Moody's has confirmed the rating of twenty-two series where there is no change in the expected loss and the rating of none of the underlying participants is on review for downgrade or on review uncertain.

Loss and Cash Flow Analysis:

The ratings assigned by Moody's address the expected loss posed to investors.

SMICBs can be considered as a repackaging of a pool of Spanish covered bonds. Each SMICB is backed by a group of Spanish covered bonds (Cédulas Hipotecarias, CHs) that are bought by a Fund, which in turn issues SMICBs. Moody's rating for any SMICB is determined after applying a two-step process:

First step: Moody's determines a rating based on the expected loss on the SMICB.

The main driver of the expected loss (EL) of a SMICB is the credit strength of the CHs backing the SMICBs. If the CHs perform, the SMICBs will be fully repaid. CHs are rated according to Moody's published covered bond methodology. In the absence of any other support (for example, such as a reserve fund), the EL of the SMICB is determined directly from the weighted-average EL (weighted by their outstanding amounts) of the CHs backing the SMICB.

The primary model used is Moody's Covered Bond Model (COBOL), which determines EL as a function of (i) the issuer's probability of default (measured by its long-term rating); and (ii) the stressed losses on the cover pool assets, following issuer default.

Second step: A secondary rating target for SMICBs is the timely payment.

Under the SMICB rating approach, Moody's gives value to two primary liquidity supports that improve the probability of timely payment if any CH backing the SMICBs fails to make a payment on a scheduled payment date. These are (i) the maturity extension on the SMICBs, which should ensure that a period of at least two years is available following any default on the CH (this period would be available to realise the value of the assets backing the CH); and (ii) a liquidity facility (LF) that is available to cover interest payments on the SMICBs. Under the SMICB rating method, the LF benefiting any SMICB can be sized to improve the timely payment of the SMICB to a level commensurate with the SMICBs' ratings.

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

The robustness of a structured multi-issuer covered bond rating largely depends on the underlying issuer's' credit strength, and the support provided by the liquidity facility and reserve fund, if any.

A multiple-notch downgrade of the SMICBs might occur in certain limited circumstances, such as (i) a sovereign downgrade negatively affecting the issuers' senior unsecured rating; (ii) a multiple-notch downgrade of the issuers or downgrade to low sub-investment grade; or (iii) a material reduction of the value of the cover pool.

Catalunya Banc SA (B3 UPG) participates in fourteen series with an average exposure of 11.7% and a maximum exposure of 42.9%. These series will be reviewed upon resolution of the watch status of this issuer. This may result in upgrades to some or all of these series.

Methodology Underlying the Rating Action:

The methodologies used in these ratings were "Moody's Approach to Rating Covered Bonds", published in March 2014 and "Moody's Approach to Rating Spanish Multi-Issuer Covered Bonds" published in September 2009. Please see the Credit Policy page on www.moodys.com for a copy of these methodologies.
