KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to American Credit Acceptance Receivables Trust 2024-2

KBRA has issued preliminary ratings to five classes of notes offered by American Credit Acceptance Receivables Trust 2024-2 (“ACAR 2024-2”), an asset-backed security collateralized by a pool of auto loans.

ACAR 2024-2 is set to issue five classes of notes totaling $442.04 million. The assigned ratings reflect initial credit enhancement ranging from 63.25% for the Class A notes to 16.80% for the Class E notes. Credit enhancement will include overcollateralization, subordination of the junior note classes (excluding the Class E note), a cash reserve account, and excess spread.

This transaction marks the second ABS securitization in 2024 for American Credit Acceptance, LLC (“ACA” or the “Company”). Since its inaugural securitization in October 2011, the Company has issued 45 additional transactions, totaling approximately $13.4 billion.

KBRA conducted a comprehensive analysis utilizing its Auto Loan ABS Global Rating Methodology, along with its Global Structured Finance Counterparty Methodology and ESG Global Rating Methodology. This analysis encompassed an assessment of the transaction’s underlying collateral pool, the proposed capital structure, and ACA’s historical static pool data. Additionally, KBRA performed an operational assessment on the originator and servicer, as well as a review of the transaction’s legal structure and documents. Operative agreements and legal opinions will be subject to further review prior to closing.
