Cabela's is in the market with a $350 million credit card securitization, according to a Bloomberg report.
The deal is structured with two yet to be sized, triple-A rated tranches. It is expected to price later this week. According to the report, the Royal Bank of Canada and Bank of America Merrill Lynch have been named joint leads on the deal. Wells Fargo Securities will act as co-manager.
During the company's 4Q11 conference call on Feb. 16, Chris Gay, director of treasury and investor relations at the firm, said the company intended to fund its exiting $425 million credit card securitization deal that was set to mature in 2012 with a new term securitization.
The existing securitization is entirely floating rate and accrues interest at a rate of Libor plus 200 basis points and the new deal would likely be structured as a mix of fixed and floating rate obligations.
After March, Cabela's next term securitization doesn't mature until January 2015.
Gay also noted that the company's plan to fund future growth with a combination of future term securitizations and by remaining active in the certificate of deposit market throughout the year.
