Rating Action:

Moody's upgrades to Aaa(sf) F2 notes issued by AyT FTPYME I (Spanish SME ABS)

24 Feb 2011

EUR10 million of rated securities affected

Frankfurt am Main, February 24, 2011 -- Moody's Investors Service has today upgraded the rating on the long-term credit rating of the F2 note issued by AyT FTPYME I, FTA:

....EUR60.2 million F2 bond, upgraded to Aaa (sf); previously on 20 Dec 2003, assigned Aa1(sf) definitive rating

RATINGS RATIONALE

Today's upgrade to Aaa (sf) of the F2 notes issued by AyT FTPYME I, FTA, takes into consideration the significant increase in credit enhancement under the senior notes. The credit enhancement supporting both the F2 and T2 tranches, which rank pari passu, represents 118% of the notes' amount and includes a reserve fund of EUR66.4 million, which fully covers the F2 and T2 notes balance of EUR50.3 million. The class T2 tranche is guaranteed by the Kingdom of Spain and is rated Aaa (sf).

Moody's analysis also took into account (a) the credit quality of the underlying portfolio of SME loans, on the basis of which the rating agency determined: (i) its cumulative default and recovery rate; (ii) its volatility assumption; and (b) the transaction structure, as assessed under Moody's cash flow analysis. The expected cumulative default rate and volatility assumption are the two key parameters the rating agency uses to calibrate its default distribution curve, which is in turn included in the cash flow model used to rate European ABS transactions.

Performance

Historically, this transaction has performed slightly worse than the Spanish SME delinquency index published by Moody's ("Spanish SME December 2010 Indices", February 2010). As of January 2011, 90- to 360-day delinquencies represented 2.7% of current balance compared with an index average of 1.7%. Since closing in 2003, cumulative write-offs for the transaction have stood at 0.66% of the original balance.

Key revised assumptions: Cumulative default and volatility

Moody's has reassessed its lifetime default expectation for AyT FTPYME I's collateral pool, not only factoring in the weak collateral performance to date, but also taking into account any likely performance deterioration of the pool in the current down cycle. In doing so, the rating agency took into account the transaction's industry and regional concentration, including its high exposure to the "Beverage, Food and Tobacco" sector (49% of the pool) and moderate exposure to real estate (15.4%), as well as to the Almeria region (47% of the pool).

Moody's assumes a default probability for SME debtors operating in the real estate sector to be equivalent to a rating in the single-B range, which takes into account the outlook of the real estate sector. The rating agency also assumes a default probability for non-real-estate debtors in the low Ba range. At the same time, Moody's estimates the remaining weighted average life of the portfolio to be 4.5 years. Consequently, these revised assumptions have translated into a rise in the cumulative mean default assumption for the current portfolio equal to 16.2% of the current portfolio balance. This rise corresponds to an equivalent rating of B1/B2. This implies a revised cumulative mean default calculation for the entire transaction since closing equal to 9.8% of the original portfolio balance (assuming cumulative defaults on a 90-day basis of 8% of the original balance so far), compared with a 5% initial default assumption at closing.

Given the relatively low granularity of the pool (effective number of 592), Moody's used a Monte Carlo simulation to derive the gross default distribution. The coefficient of variation has been adjusted to 45%, compared with 50% as of closing in December 2003.

Moody's increased the average recovery-rate assumption to 35% (stochastic recovery rate), compared with 30% assumed at closing. The rating agency also lowered the constant prepayment rate (CPR) assumption to 5% instead of 10% at closing. In addition, Moody's performed sensitivity tests in the 0%-10% range.

The principal methodologies used in this rating were Refining the ABS SME Approach: Moody's Probability of Defaults Assumptions in the Rating Analysis of Granular Small and Mid Sized Enterprise Portfolios in EMEA, published in March 2009 and Moody's Approach to Rating Granular SME Transactions in Europe, Middle East and Africa, published in June 2007.

Moody's 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 six months.

Moody's used its excel based cash flow model, Moody's ABSROM™, as part of its quantitative analysis of the transaction. Moody's ABSROM™ model enables users to model various features of a standard European ABS transaction including: (i) the specifics of the default distribution of the assets, their portfolio amortization profile, yield or recoveries; and (ii) the specific priority of payments, triggers, swaps and reserve funds on the liability side of the ABS structure. Moody's ABSROM™ User Guide is available on Moody's website and covers the model's functionality as well as providing a comprehensive index of the user inputs and outputs. MOODY'S CDOROMv2.8™ was used to estimate the default distribution.

Moody's analysed various sensitivities of cumulative default rates to test the robustness of its revised rating. For instance, the rating agency observed that the quantitative/model-indicated rating outcome for classes F2 and T2 would remain consistent with the revised rating if the mean default rate were to increase by 25 % at 20.2%. In addition, Moody's tested a reduction of the reserve fund, which could occur if delinquency levels fall below 1% (compared with 2.7% as of the last reporting date). In that case, the model outcome remained consistent with the rating of the notes, including the A1 rating on class B.

Operational risk

The transaction is serviced by 13 Spanish banks, of which nine are not rated by Moody's (representing approximately 40% of the portfolio balance). Given the high level of the reserve fund, the senior ratings are well insulated against servicer disruption risk. The Fondo's management company ("gestora"), AyT, acting as the cash manager, has indicated to Moody's that should one of the servicers cease to provide the relevant information on the portfolio of loans they are servicing, AyT would continue to apply the waterfall. It would accomplish this by using available funds for which the source (principal, interest, other monies ) can be identified (including the reserve fund), so as to make timely payment of interest under the notes. So even in case one or several of the weaker servicers in the transaction does not provide on time the servicer report with all details, interest payments on the notes will be made in a timely manner. So the high reserve fund levels and the waterfall mechanics provide good mitigants in this transaction against potential operational risks.

Transaction

AyT FTPYME I, FTA is a securitisation fund, which purchased a pool of loans granted to SMEs originated by six savings banks and seven credit cooperatives in December 2003. In January 2011, the portfolio consisted of 1,453 loans. Most of the loans were originated between 1999 and 2003.

Moody's ratings address the expected loss posed to investors by the legal final maturity of the notes. The rating agency's ratings address only the credit risks associated with the transaction. Other non-credit risks have not been addressed, but may have a significant effect on yield to investors.
