Press Release as of 13.11.2015

OOO Raiffeisen Capital Asset Management Company

AK&M Rating Agency has downgraded the credit rating of MPC GC-2 from 'A' tier 3, to 'B++' tier 2. The outlook is stable.

The rating downgrade follows the early repayment by CJSC Rapid, one of the mortgage borrowers, of its debt liabilities, with the result that the mortgage coverage for MPC GC-2 is currently entirely accounted for by mortgage certificates under the loan agreement with just one borrower (CJSC Rusincom). The dependence on one borrower has negative affected the quality of the mortgage coverage and the yield on the financial instrument, which served as a ground for the rating downgrade.

At the same time, we note a deterioration in the creditworthiness of CJSC Rusincom as of the end of the 9-month period in 2019 months 2015 (net loss reaching RUB 379 million), as the probability of default on the long-term horizon increased to 47%.

Another point of concern is that CJSC Rapid had effected a mere one-quarter of all expected loan interest payments by the moment it repaid the debt obligations, which precented the owners of the MPC GC-2 mortgage participation certificates from earning ca. RUB 550 million in profits. With this in mind, AK&M Rating Agency has estimated the investors' maximum direct losses at approximately 40% of the mortgage coverage.

In AK&M Rating Agency's view, the positive rating drivers include satisfactory quality of the mortgage collateral provided on the loan to CJSC Rusincom, a high credit rating of B&N Bank (PJSC) (the loan originator and the settlement agent for transaction purposes), a high institutional status of the special depository (CJSC First Specialized Depository), a reputable registrar (CJSC Computershare Registrar) and the absence of overdue debt on the obligations constituting the mortgage coverage of MPC GC-2. Besides, we appreciate the moderately high reliability of insurance coverage applying to real estate assets provided by B&N Insurance LLC, an insurance company specializing in the mortgage insurance segment and accredited by AHML.
