      Scope has completed a monitoring review of Palatino SPV S.r.l. – Italian NPL ABS

      No action has been taken on class A notes issued by Palatino SPV S.r.l. following the monitoring review.

      Scope Ratings GmbH (Scope) monitors and reviews its credit ratings on an ongoing basis and at least annually, or every six months in the case of sovereigns, sub-sovereigns and supranational organisations.

      Scope performs monitoring reviews to determine whether material changes and/or changes in macroeconomic or financial market conditions could have an impact on the credit ratings. Scope considers all available and relevant information when undertaking the monitoring review.

      Monitoring reviews are conducted by performing a peer comparison, benchmarking against the rating-change drivers, and/or reviewing the credit ratings’ performance over time, as deemed appropriate by the Lead Analyst or Analytical Team Head, in addition to an assessment of all aspects of the relevant methodologies, including key rating assumptions and models. Scope publicly announces the completion of each monitoring review on its website.

      Scope completed the monitoring review for Palatino SPV S.r.l. on 12 May 2022. The credit rating remains as follow:

      Class A (ISIN IT0005446528), EUR 125,713,764.45 current balance: BBBSF

      Class B1 (ISIN IT0005446536), EUR 11,000,000 current balance: not rated

      Class B2 (ISIN IT0005446551), EUR 12,400,000 current balance: not rated

      Class J (ISIN IT0005446569), EUR 6,280,000 current balance: not rated

      Palatino SPV S.r.l. is a static cash securitisation of secured and unsecured non-performing loans extended to companies and individuals in Italy worth around EUR 865 million by gross book value (GBV) at closing. The portfolio was sold by Credito Fondiario S.p.A. and is serviced by Master Gardant S.p.A. (formerly Credito Fondiario S.p.A.). The Issuer acquired the portfolio at the transfer date of 11 December 2020 and is entitled to all portfolio collections received since the 01 May 2021. The legal maturity is in December 2045. Scope does not rate class B1, class B2 and class J notes.

      The review was conducted considering available servicer reports, payment reports and investor reports up to the December 2021 payment date. This monitoring note does not constitute a credit rating action, nor does it indicate the likelihood that Scope will conduct a credit rating action in the short term. Information about the latest credit rating action connected with this monitoring note along with the associated rating history can be found on www.scoperatings.com.

      Key rating factors

      As of 1 December 2021, aggregate gross collections were EUR 17.0m, which is 143% of the original business plan gross expectations up to that date (EUR 11.9m). Total gross collections are split between judicial proceeds (67.2%), discounted payoff proceeds (26.1%), note sale proceeds (5.3%) and other types of collections that are not yet classified (1.4%).

      Around 80.2% of the total cumulative gross collections stem from open debtors (i.e. debtors for which the recovery process is still ongoing). Closed debtors account for 6.8% of the transaction’s initial GBV, registering a profitability that is above Scope’s expectation for the B case scenario.

      Interests on classes B1 and B2 (collectively, class B) are subordinated to the payment of class A principal if the Cumulative Net Collection Ratio falls below 100% of the servicers’ business plan target or the Net Present Value Profitability Ratio falls below 100%. Class B interest subordination event is curable, and once cured, all accrued and unpaid interest are distributed senior to class A principal payments. As per the last payment date, no class B interest subordination event occurred as the Cumulative Net Collection Ratio and the Net Present Value Profitability Ratio were at 142.3% and 171.3%, respectively. Class A amortised 7% since the issuance date.

      The rating considers the issuer’s exposure to key counterparties.

      CREDIT-POSITIVE (+)

      Cumulative collections. Aggregate gross and net collections have outpaced Scope’s timing expectations under class A analysis.

      Profitability of closed borrowers. Profitability on closed borrowers is above Scope’s original expectations under B case assumptions.

      CREDIT-NEGATIVE (-)

      Inflation induced economic slowdown: High inflation on the back of soaring energy and commodity prices combined with tighter monetary policy could see recession risk increase substantially. Thus, deteriorated liquidity conditions could reduce the servicer’s performance on collections. Scope has recently reduced its growth projections for Italian economy in 2022 from 4.5% to 4.1%.

      The methodologies applicable for the reviewed rating (General Structured Finance Rating Methodology, 17 December 2021; Non-Performing Loan ABS Methodology, 6 August 2021; Methodology for Counterparty Risk in Structured Finance, 13 July 2021) are available on https://scoperatings.com/governance-and-policies/rating-governance/methodologies.
