      No action has been taken 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 methodology/ies, including key rating assumptions and model(s). Scope publicly announces the completion of each monitoring review on its website. 

      Scope completed a monitoring review of the following notes issued by Red & Black Auto Germany 6 UG on 11 October 2022 and considered the investor reporting up to August 2022 payment date. The credit ratings remain as follows:

      Class A: EUR 243.2m outstanding amount: AAASF

      Class B: EUR 17.5m outstanding amount: AA+SF

      Class C: EUR 6.5m outstanding amount: A-SF

      Class D: EUR 4.4m outstanding amount: BBB-SF

      Red & Black Auto Germany 6 UG is the sixth auto ABS transaction of Bank Deutsches Kraftfahrzeuggewerbe GmbH (BDK). The transaction is a static cash securitisation of German auto loans, originated and serviced by BDK. The current portfolio (EUR 276.6m versus EUR 1,000.0m at closing) is comprised of private clients (90.1%) and commercial clients (9.90%) based in Germany, who used the loans to acquire new (20.8%), newly used (44.01%) and used (35.19%) vehicles. The notes amortisation has recently switched to pro-rata from sequential, as the following conditions have been met: the class A credit enhancement has exceeded 11% and the net loss ratio remains below 1.1%. Amortisation may revert to sequential if such conditions, among other performance triggers, ceased to be met.

      The review was conducted considering available investor reports up to the August 2022 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.
