NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns preliminary ratings to five classes of notes issued by OneMain Financial Issuance Trust 2019-1 (“OMFIT 2019-1”), a consumer loan asset-backed securities transaction.
The collateral in the OMFIT 2019-1 deal includes approximately $480.1 million of loans, as of the December 31, 2018 initial cutoff 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 criteria. The preliminary ratings reflect the initial credit enhancement levels ranging from 34.75% for the Class A notes to 3.95% for the Class E notes.
OneMain Holdings, Inc. (“OMH” or “OneMain”) is a consumer finance company which offers loan products through a nationwide network of branches and through its online platform.

KBRA applied our Global Consumer Loan ABS Rating Methodology as part of our analysis of the transaction’s underlying collateral pool, the proposed capital structure and legacy OMFH and legacy Springleaf’s historical annualized gross and net loss data. KBRA also conducted an operational assessment of OneMain, as well as a review of the transaction’s legal structure and transaction documents.
