KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to ABPCI Direct Lending Fund ABS II LLC

KBRA assigns preliminary ratings to four classes of notes issued by ABPCI Direct Lending Fund ABS II LLC (ABPCI DLF ABS II), a securitization backed by a portfolio of primarily recurring revenue and middle market corporate loans.

ABPCI DLF ABS II is a $450.0 million securitization managed by AB Private Credit Investors LLC (“AB-PCI” or the “Collateral Manager”), an investment adviser and a subsidiary of Alliance Bernstein L.P. The securitization consists of $200.0 million Class A-1 floating-rate notes, $72.25 million of Class A-2 fixed-rate notes, $45.0 million of Class B fixed-rate notes, $31.5 million of Class C fixed-rate notes and $105.85 million of subordinated notes, which expect to receive payments from a portfolio of recurring revenue loans (“RRLs”), middle market loans (“MMLs”), and a small portion of hybrid asset-based loans (“HABLs”).

The collateral in ABPCI DLF ABS II may contain up to 70% RRLs and HABLs combined. The RRL strategy focuses on first-lien senior loans to software and technology companies with a minimum level of recurring revenue and low loan-to-value (LTV) ratios. Despite the low level of earnings, the obligors in the portfolio usually have strong liquidity profiles and loan covenants. The portfolio presented to KBRA contains exposures to 46 obligors and has an overall K-WARF of 3806, which equates to a weighted average portfolio assessment between B- and CCC+.

AB Private Credit Investors LLC is an investment adviser and a subsidiary of AllianceBernstein L.P. established in 2014. AllianceBernstein L.P. is a global asset manager with $751 billion in assets under management including $306 billion in fixed income AUM. AB-PCI currently manages over $3.2 billion in middle market CLOs. AB-PCI has committed approximately $6 billion within the technology and software industry vertical.

KBRA’s preliminary ratings on the Class A-1, A-2, and B Notes considers timely payment of interest and ultimate payment of principal by the applicable stated maturity date. KBRA’s preliminary rating on the Class C Notes considers ultimate payment of interest and principal by the applicable stated maturity date.

KBRA analyzed the transaction using the Structured Credit Global Rating Methodology, the Global Structured Finance Counterparty Methodology, and the ESG Global Rating Methodology.
