The auto ABS market has been seeing activity outside of the Term ABS Loan Facility (TALF), a departure from recent activity in the sector that was mostly focused on TALF deals.
Ford Motor Co. priced its auto ABS deal today, upsizing it to $1.58 billion from $1.03 billion. The deal, as reported earlier by StructuredFinanceNews.com, was not eligible under the Federal Reserve’s TALF.
Another transaction from Chrysler Financial backed by automobile loans is in the market currently. The $890 million offering has Barclays Capital as its sole bookrunner.
Joint lead managers on the ABS transaction are BNP Paribas, Citigroup Global Markets, RBC Capital Markets and JPMorgan Securities.
Meanwhile, the credit card sector, which has also seen much TALF-related activity, has GE Capital Credit Card Master Note Trust Series 2009-4 in its roster of non-TALF deals.
Preliminary details on the Chrysler transaction as well as the Brazos Higher Education Service Corp. student loan deal, which priced yesterday, are available from the ASR Scorecard database via the link below.
