NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–KBRA assigns ratings to three classes of Supplemental Bond Series 2022-1 (“CPC 2022-1”) issued by CPC Asset Securitization I, LLC.
CPC 2022-1 represents the second series of Notes issued by CPC Asset Securitization I, LLC (the “Issuer”), following the issuance of Series 2021-1 (“CPC 2021-1”) on December 7 2021. Both Series 2022 -1 and Series 2021-1 (collectively referred to as the “Notes”) share the same collateral pool. In conjunction with the issuance of CPC 2022-1, KBRA plans to confirm the ratings of the issuer’s outstanding Series 2021-1 notes. The note ratings are consistent with the results of our cash flow analysis following the addition of the Series 2022-1 Notes.
Proceeds from the sale of Series 2022-1 Notes will be used to purchase receivables, fund the Reserve Account and pay related fees and expenses. The Notes are “expandable” term notes such that at any time during the renewal period, the Issuer may periodically issue additional Notes, up to a maximum amount of $500.0 million, so long as certain conditions are met, including receipt of confirmation from the rating agency.
CPC was founded in 2009, based in Minnetonka, Minnesota, with offices in Minnesota, Iowa and Georgia. The Company provides financing to small businesses through the use of a proprietary risk scoring model, transactional data and technology systems. CPC’s underwriting approach relies on multiple data sources and metrics related to a Business Owner that the Company believes are predictive of the Business Owner’s credit performance.
