Kroll Bond Rating Agency Assigns Preliminary Ratings to Ascentium Equipment Receivables 2017-1 Trust


NEW YORK--()--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns preliminary ratings to six note classes of Ascentium Equipment Receivables 2017-1 Trust. The notes are newly issued asset-backed securities backed by a portfolio of equipment leases and loans.

This transaction is Ascentium Capital LLC’s (“Ascentium” or the “Company”) seventh securitization supported by small and mid-ticket general equipment. The transaction features a payment waterfall, whereby all collections after expenses and interest payments will pay down principal, until the target credit enhancement (10.25%) as a percentage of the current collateral balance is reached.

As of April 1, 2017 (the “Statistical Calculation Date”), the collateral consists of equipment loans and leases totaling approximately $226.1 million. The balance of the collateral is subject to certain eligibility criteria and will be funded during a 90-day period (“Pre-Funding Period”) following the closing date and will total approximately $25.2 million. The discounted balance (“Discounted Contract Balance”) for the collateral as of the Statistical Calculation Date is based on the projected equipment loan and lease cash flows discounted at a rate of 4.75%.

KBRA analyzed the transaction using the Equipment Lease & Loan Methodology published on June 30, 2012.

For complete details on the analysis, please see KBRA’s Pre-Sale Report, which was published on April 20, 2017 at www.kbra.com.
