NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 5, 2021--

Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns preliminary ratings to four classes of notes issued by OneMain Direct Auto Receivables Trust 2021-1 (“ODART 2021-1”), an auto loan asset-backed securities transaction.

The collateral in the ODART 2021-1 transaction includes approximately $631.6 million of loans as of the August 31, 2021 Statistical Cut-Off Date. The transaction includes a two-year revolving period during which additional collateral may be funded in the transaction so long as it complies with certain eligibility and reinvestment criteria. The preliminary ratings reflect the initial credit enhancement levels ranging from 27.00% for the Class A notes to 5.50% for the Class D notes.

OneMain Holdings, Inc. (“OMH”) is a consumer finance company which offers loan products through a nationwide network of branches and through its online platform. OMH completed its acquisition of OneMain Financial Holdings, LLC (“OMFH”) on November 15, 2015 from CitiFinancial Credit Company for $4.49 billion in cash. OMH is now listed on the NYSE under the ticker symbol “OMF”. OneMain Finance Corporation (“OneMain” or “OMFC”, or the “Company”) is the Sponsor, Servicer, Performance Support Provider & Administrator in ODART 2021-1.


KBRA applied its Auto 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 transaction’s underlying collateral pool, the proposed capital structure and OMFC’s historical static pool data. KBRA considered its operational review of OneMain and its branches, as well as periodic update calls with the Company. Operative agreements and legal opinions will be reviewed prior to closing.
