New Milestone with Company’s Largest AA-rated Issuance To-Date; Sustained Momentum with 2nd Securitization of 2021
Octane (Octane Lending Inc.), the fintech revolutionizing the buying experience for major recreational purchases, announced that it has closed a $340 million securitization (“OCTL 2021-2”) collateralized by its fixed-rate installment powersports loans. This successful transaction marks Octane’s second securitization of 2021 and fourth since launching the program in December 2019.
OCTL 2021-2 issued three classes of fixed-rate notes: Class A, Class B, and Class C, all of which Standard & Poor’s (S&P)* and Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA)** rated as AA/AA, A/A, and BBB/BBB+ respectively in a private offering pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. This was Octane’s largest asset-backed securitization transaction to date. J.P. Morgan acted as lead bookrunner and structuring agent, with Credit Suisse and Truist Securities as joint bookrunners.
“The AA rating and high demand for our securitizations are a testament to the strong performance of our loans and the success of our business model,” said Steven Fernald, Chief Financial Officer at Octane. “We are grateful for the diverse mix of, and continued participation by, our institutional investor partners who have given us even more flexibility to support our rapid growth and expansion into new verticals.”
In August 2021, Octane announced it raised $52 million in Series D funding bringing the company’s valuation to over $900 million with more than $192 million in total equity funding raised to date.
