DBRS Ratings Limited (DBRS Morningstar) finalised its provisional ratings of the Class A, Class B, Class C, Class D and Class E Notes (the Rated Notes and together with the unrated Class M Notes, the Notes) issued by Sunrise SPV Z80 S.r.l. (the Issuer) – as Sunrise 2019-2, as follows:
-- AA (high) (sf) to the Class A Notes
-- A (high) (sf) to the Class B Notes
-- BBB (high) (sf) to the Class C Notes
-- BBB (low) (sf) to the Class D Notes
-- BB (high) (sf) to the Class E Notes
DBRS Morningstar does not rate the lowest-ranked Class M Notes.
The rating of the Class A Notes addresses the timely payment of scheduled interest and ultimate repayment of principal by the legal final maturity date. The ratings of the Class B Notes, the Class C Notes, the Class D Notes and the Class E Notes address the ultimate payment of scheduled interest while subordinated but timely payment of scheduled interest as the most senior class and ultimate repayment of principal by the legal final maturity date.
The Notes are backed by a pool of receivables related to consumer loan contracts originated by Agos Ducato S.p.A. (Agos), a leading consumer finance company in Italy.
The ratings are based upon DBRS Morningstar’s review of the following analytical considerations:
-- The transaction capital structure including the form and sufficiency of available credit enhancement.
-- Credit enhancement levels are sufficient to support DBRS Morningstar’s expected default and recovery assumptions under various stress scenarios.
-- The ability of the transaction to withstand stressed cash flow assumptions and repay the Rated Notes according to the terms of the transaction documents.
-- Agos’s capabilities with respect to originations, underwriting, servicing and financial strength, and the DBRS Morningstar sovereign rating of the Republic of Italy, currently BBB (high).
-- The consistency of the transaction’s legal structure with DBRS Morningstar’s “Legal Criteria for European Structured Finance Transactions” methodology and the presence of legal opinions that address the true sale of the assets to the Issuer.
The transaction cash flow structure was analysed in Intex DealMaker.
All figures are in euros unless otherwise noted.
The principal methodology applicable to the ratings is “Rating European Consumer and Commercial Asset-Backed Securitisations”.
DBRS Morningstar has applied the principal methodology consistently and conducted a review of the transaction in accordance with the principal methodology.
An asset and a cash flow analysis were both conducted. Due to the inclusion of a revolving period in the transaction, the analysis is based on the worst-case replenishment criteria set forth in the transaction legal documents.
Other methodologies referenced in this transaction are listed at the end of this press release.

To assess the impact of changing the transaction parameters on the rating, DBRS Morningstar considered the following stress scenarios, as compared to the parameters used to determine the rating:
-- Expected default of 7.9%, a 25% and 50% increase.
-- Expected loss given default (LGD) of 86.5%: a 25% and 50% increase.
Scenario 1: A 25% increase in the expected default.
Scenario 2: A 50% increase in the expected default.
Scenario 3: A 25% increase in the expected LGD.
Scenario 4: A 25% increase in the expected default and 25% increase in the expected LGD.
Scenario 5: A 50% increase in the expected default and 25% increase in the expected LGD.
Scenario 6: A 50% increase in the expected LGD.
Scenario 7: A 25% increase in the expected default and 50% increase in the expected LGD.
Scenario 8: A 50% increase in the expected default and 50% increase in the expected LGD.
DBRS Morningstar concludes that the expected ratings under the eight stress scenarios are:
-- Class A Notes: AA (low) (sf), A (sf), AA (sf), A (sf), A (low) (sf), AA (sf), (A) (sf), A (low) (sf);
