PITAGORA S.p.A.: SENIOR CLASS SECURITIES QUOTATION ISSUED IN COSUMER CREDIT SECURITIZATION FROM € 525 MILLION

Pitagora S.p.A. obtained the rating on the Senior Securities of the Annette Operation, a third securitization resulting from a consumer credit portfolio, assisted by the deduction of a fifth of salary/pension, for a nominal value of 525 million euros, formed in December 2015 with the parent company Banca CR Asti S.p.A. underwriter of 95% of the Securities. The remaining 5% is held by Pitagora for the mandatory retention rule.

Specifically, the Senior Securities of the Transaction, for a total of 441 million euros, after receiving the rating from Moody's and DBRS respectively of Aa2 (sf) and A (sf), were listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.

The structure of the transaction, with a 36-month "ramp up" period, expected for the sale of the portfolio to the SPV Annette s.r.l. and the issue of two classes of securities, "asset-backed" and "partly paid", subscribed by Pitagora itself and Banca CR Asti.

Pitagora, "originator" and "servicer" of the credits, acts as a specialized broker in the sector of loans assisted by the transfer of the fifth of the salary and/or pension.

Pitagora, which became part of the Group CR Asti S.p.A in 2015, is now positioned at the high end of the industry.
