Giddy Structured Finance 4 Legal Aspects  Goal: Credit quality must be solely based on the quality of the assets and the credit enhancement backing the obligation, without any regard to the originator's own creditworthiness  Otherwise, quality of the ABS issue would be dependent on the originator's credit, and the whole rationale of the asset-backed security would be undermined. LEGAL

5 Copyright ©2002 Ian H. Giddy Structured Finance 5 Three conditions enable the separation of the assets and the originator  The transfer must be a true sale, or its legal equivalent. If originator is only pledging the assets to secure a debt, this would be regarded as collaterized financing in which the originator would stay directly indebted to the investor.  The assets must be owned by a special- purpose corporation, whose ownership of the sold assets is likely to survive bankruptcy of the seller.  The special-purpose vehicle that owns the assets must be independent LEGAL

Giddy Structured Finance 13 Trade Receivable Backed CP l Over $500 billion outstanding in US alone l Key feature is pooling of different companies’ trade receivables, allowing smaller companies to take advantage of ABS market l Need two-tier legal structure – SPV at level of each company’s receivables pool, and at multi-company program (the “conduit”)

21 Copyright ©2002 Ian H. Giddy Structured Finance 21 Can an ABS SPV Declare Bankruptcy?  Only assets in SPV available to protect investors  No need for protection from creditors  Obligations are defined as limited to those available from the assets  No recourse to originator  So default and bankruptcy have different meaning than for normal corporation.

26 Copyright ©2002 Ian H. Giddy Structured Finance 26 Paydown: Waterfall vs Soft Bullet Structure

27 Copyright ©2002 Ian H. Giddy Structured Finance 27 Implications of Waterfall Upgrades l The capital allocated to a well-balanced ABS portfolio should slowly decrease over time, whereas the same cannot be said of a similar corporate loan portfolio. l Rating upgrades should be the norm in the ABS world, and downgrades the exception (currently, the situation is exactly the opposite). In the corporate world, we should rather expect downgrades to equal upgrades over long time intervals. l An ABS portfolio should be traded much more actively than a corporate loan portfolio to take advantage of its inherent rating volatility.
