First issuance programme
Banca Popolare di Sondrio, with the aim of guaranteeing efficient management of corporate liquidity, has launched a Covered Bond operation.
The operation, which is part of a broader process of effective management of funding sources, is aimed at allowing the company to continue to have adequate means for the new structural liquidity needs and continue to operate in an excellent way on the market.
The Obbligazioni Bancarie Garantite are bonds, issued by a bank ("Issuer"), which are mainly characterized by the presence of an irrevocable, unconditional guarantee, independent of the obligations assumed by the Issuer, represented by a portfolio of loans of primary quality , which is sold by the Issuer to a Vehicle Company. The assets sold constitute separate assets from that of the Vehicle Company for the benefit of the bondholders and other parties in favor of whom the guarantee is issued.
In the transaction in question, the role of Issuer is played by Banca Popolare di Sondrio (hereinafter the "Bank") which has sold, by signing a specific sale contract stipulated on 30 May 2014, but with economic and legal effectiveness starting from 01 June 2014, a first portfolio of primary quality loans, represented by mortgage loans granted to individuals, to a Vehicle Company called "POPSO Covered Bond Srl", established for the purpose and majority owned by the Bank.
The operation generally takes the form of two successive phases:
- transfer of credits (the loans indicated above) by the Bank to POPSO Covered Bond S.r.l
- issue of bonds by the Bank
From a practical point of view, the assignment of mortgages does not involve any change for the Borrowers holding the assigned credits, as the management of banking relationships remains at the reference branch, leaving the conditions, characteristics and sending of communications of the mortgage itself completely unchanged.
As part of the First Issuance Program, various disposals were finalized.
