      Scope has completed a monitoring review on 5 Italian NPL transactions

      No action has been taken on the notes of 5 Italian NPL transactions following their 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.

      Rating factors

      Rating factors assessed during the monitoring review include realised profitability on closed positions, the timing of cumulative collections and the amount of recovery expenses, against Scope’s expectations, further detailed below. Additionally, the review addressed the risk of a slowdown of the Italian economy driven by persistent inflationary pressures combined with tighter monetary policy, and the potential deterioration of liquidity conditions which could impair servicers’ performance on collections. The ratings also consider the issuers’ exposure to key counterparties, the legal and structural protection provided to the notes, the liquidity protection and the interest rate hedging agreements.

      Aporti S.r.l.

      Faster-than-expected cumulative collections (positive). Aggregate gross and net collections amount to EUR 20.4m and EUR 19.4m respectively. Total gross collections are split between judicial proceeds (71.2%), DPO (‘discounted pay-off’) proceeds (25.1%), credit sales (3.4%) and other type of collections (0.3%). Aggregate net collections have outpaced Scope’s timing assumptions. Based on the servicer business plan, aggregate net collections are 234.1% of original expectations.

      Recovery expenses (positive). Recovery expenses are approximately 4.7% of gross collections to date, which is below Scope assumption of 9%.

      Low profitability of secured closed positions (negative). Total gross collections from closed borrowers represent 27.9% of cumulative collections and were mainly obtained through DPOs (62.2%), judicial collections (25.4%) and credit sales (12.4%). Based on Scope calculations, closed secured debtors account for around 4.9% of the transaction’s initial secured gross book value. The profitability on these debtors, at 70.2%, is below Scope’s expectations under the B case assumptions.

      Aurelia SPV S.r.l.

      Faster-than-expected cumulative collections (positive). Aggregate gross and net collections amount to EUR 140.8m and EUR 135.1m respectively.
