NEW YORK, January 26, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KBRA assigns preliminary ratings to four classes of notes issued by ACC Trust 2022-1 ("ACC 2022-1"), an asset-backed securitization collateralized by a pool of auto leases.
ACC 2022-1 will issue four classes of notes totaling $207.55 million. The primary assets of ACC 2022-1 will consist of the i) SUBI certificate, which represents the beneficial interest in the specified closed-end leases of the titling trust, ii) the specified vehicles and related assets, including the right to receive payments under the leases, iii) the amounts realized from sales of the specified vehicles and iv) amounts in certain trust accounts, including the reserve account.
KBRA applied its General Global Rating Methodology for Asset-Backed Securities, Auto Loan ABS Global Rating Methodology, Global Structured Finance Counterparty Methodology, and ESG Global Rating Methodology as part of its analysis of the transaction’s underlying collateral pool, the proposed capital structure and ACC’s historic static pool data. KBRA also conducted an on-site operational review of the Company’s Memphis Tennessee headquarters and has since held several update calls with the Company. Operative agreements and legal opinions will be reviewed prior to closing.
