Fitch to Rate Eagle Credit Card Trust Series 2015-1; Presale Issued

NEW YORK--()--Fitch Ratings has issued a presale report for Eagle Credit Card Trust series 2015-1, which Fitch expects to rate as follows:

--TBD Credit Card Receivables-Backed Class A Notes Series

2015-1 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;

--TBD Credit Card Receivables-Backed Class B Notes Series

2015-1 'Asf'; Outlook Stable;

--TBD Credit Card Receivables-Backed Class C Notes Series

2015-1 'BBBsf'; Outlook Stable.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Fitch's ratings are based on the underlying receivables pool, available credit enhancement, President's Choice Bank's underwriting and servicing capabilities, and the transaction's legal and cash flow structures, which employ early amortization triggers.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Fitch models three different scenarios when evaluating the rating sensitivity compared to expected performance for credit card asset-backed securities transactions: 1) increased defaults, 2) a reduction in purchase rate, and 3) a combination stress of higher defaults and lower MPR.

Reducing the purchase rate alone has the least impact on rating migration even in the most severe scenario of a 0% purchase rate. The rating sensitivity to an increase in defaults is more pronounced with a moderate and severe stress of 50% and 75%, respectively, and would lead to a possible downgrade of the senior notes. The harshest scenario assumes both increased defaults and reduced MPR stresses occur simultaneously, and would lead to possible downgrades across all classes.

To date, the transactions have exhibited strong performance, with all performance metrics within Fitch's expectations. For further discussion of our sensitivity analysis, please see the related presale report.
