DBRS, Inc. (DBRS) assigned the following rating to the note issued by GM Financial Automobile Leasing Trust 2018-PP10:
-- Series 2018-PP10 Note, rated AA (sf)
The ratings are based on a review by DBRS of the following analytical considerations:
-- Transaction capital structure, proposed ratings and form and sufficiency of available credit enhancement. The transaction benefits from credit enhancement in the form of overcollateralization, amounts held in the reserve fund and excess spread. Credit enhancement levels are sufficient to support DBRS-projected expected cumulative net loss assumptions and residual value loss assumptions under various stress scenarios.
-- The ability of the transaction to withstand stressed cash flow assumptions and repay investors according to the terms under which they have invested. For this transaction, the rating addresses the payment of timely interest on a monthly basis and principal by the legal final maturity date.
-- The transaction parties’ capabilities with regard to originations, underwriting and servicing and the financial strength of General Motors Financial Company, Inc. (GMF).
-- The credit quality of the collateral.
-- The legal structure and presence of legal opinions that address the true sale of the Note to the Issuer, the non-consolidation of the special-purpose vehicle with GMF, that the trust has a valid first-priority security interest in the assets and the consistency with the DBRS methodology “Legal Criteria for U.S. Structured Finance.”
All figures are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted.
