RPT-Fitch Affirms BBVA-5 FTPYME, FTA

(Repeat for additional subscribers)

June 18 (Reuters) - (The following statement was released by the rating agency)

Fitch Ratings has affirmed BBVA-5 FTPYME, FTA’s notes, as follows:

EUR0.44m class A1 notes affirmed at ‘Asf’, Outlook Stable

EUR0.12m class A2 notes affirmed at ‘Asf’, Outlook Stable

EUR39.9m class B notes affirmed at ‘Asf’, Outlook Stable

EUR57m class C notes affirmed at ‘AAAsf’, Outlook Stable

BBVA 5 FTPYME, F.T.A. is a static securitisation of a EUR1.9bn initial portfolio of Spanish SME loans originated and serviced by Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA; A-/Stable/F2).


The affirmation reflects the stable performance of the transactions over the past 12 months. Credit enhancement has increased throughout the structure to 99.3% for class A and 52.7% class B, compared with 66.9% and 35.8% respectively a year ago. Class A and B ratings are capped at ‘Asf’ due to transaction’s exposure to payment interruption risk through Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA; A-/Stable/F2). The rating of the class C notes is linked to their guarantor, EIF (AAA/Stable/F2).

The portfolio has amortised to 6.54% of the initial outstanding balance. The 90+ day delinquencies decreased to 1.09% in May 2014 from 2.17% in June 2013. Similarly over the same period, current defaults also decreased to EUR38.28m from EUR41.89m. The reserve fund has been depleted since 2010 and a Principal Deficiency Ledger (PDL) has built up. Over the past year, the PDL has increased by EUR390,000 and currently stands at EUR11.63m.


Applying a 1.25x default rate multiplier or a 0.75x recovery rate multiplier to all assets in the portfolio would not result in a downgrade of the notes. However, if EIF is downgraded, it would trigger a rating action on the class C notes.
