KBRA Assigns Ratings to PowerPay Issuance Trust 2024-1

28 Mar 2024   |   New York


KBRA assigns ratings to three classes of notes issued by PowerPay Issuance Trust 2024-1 (“PowerPay 2024-1”), an asset-backed securitization collateralized by a pool of consumer loans used for home improvements and elective medical. This transaction represents PowerPay LLC’s inaugural 144A ABS securitization.

PowerPay 2024-1 issued three classes of notes totaling $118.893 million, collateralized by $130.94 million of receivables.

Founded in 2018 and headquartered in King of Prussia, PA, PowerPay, LLC (“PowerPay” or the “Company”) operates a digital platform (the “PowerPay Platform”) that facilitates point-of-sale financing solutions to consumers across the home improvement and elective medical markets. As of February 29, 2024 the Company had 152 full-time employees. Since inception, the Company has funded over $1.2 billion across approximately 45,000 transactions. PowerPay currently offers financing in all 50 states and the District of Columbia through its credit union partners via the PowerPay Platform. One of these partnerships is with Chartway Federal Credit Union (the “Chartway” or the “Seller”), which will be the sole contributor of collateral for the PowerPay 2024-1 transaction. Paramount Capital Group, LLC, (PCG), an unrelated third-party servicer, provides loan servicing and collection services for loans originated through the PowerPay Platform and for PowerPay 2024-1.

KBRA applied its Consumer Loan ABS Global Rating Methodology, as well as its Global Structured Finance Counterparty Methodology and ESG Global Rating Methodology as part of its analysis of the static pool data and the underlying collateral pool and stressed the capital structure based upon its stress case cash flow assumptions. KBRA considered its operational review of PowerPay LLC, as well as several business updates with the Company since that time. Operative agreements and legal opinions were reviewed prior to closing.
