Hyundai last came to market with a prime auto loan deal in January with its $1.31 billion HART 2013-A.
Auto ABS issuance has this month moved toward more auto leases and subprime loan deals. Wells Fargo said in a securitzation report in May that the slowdown in new vehicle sales may reduce the need for securitization as a financing alternative among prime auto lenders.
Also the analysts noted that widening in prime auto ABS spreads from Q4 2012 through early April 2013, after a long stretch of spread tightening that started in early 2012, makes securitization a more expensive option compared with other forms of financing for auto lenders.
“We expect spread fluctuations to continue to influence the behavior of auto ABS issuers that have ready access to other forms of funding, such as bank credit lines or corporate bonds,” said analysts.
