AT Lease gears up for new securitization

AT Lease gets preliminary approval for 1Q2021 securitized bond sale: AT Lease is looking to issue securitized bonds before the end of the quarter after receiving an early go-ahead from regulators, the company said in an EGX filing (pdf). The company said last year that it was looking to offload EGP 1 bn of its portfolio for the three-tranche issuance that was initially expected to go ahead in 3Q2020. The leasing company also plans to expand its factoring services for SMEs — which it launched last October after obtaining its license — during FY2021.

The securitized bond market heated up last year, with CI Capital’s Corplease just last weekend closing a record EGP 2.7 bn sale and GB Auto subsidiaries GB Lease and Drive taking to market a combined EGP 2.9 bn of bonds. The Financial Regulatory Authority said last month that five companies were planning seven issuances worth a combined EGP 9.3 bn are in the pipeline. Amer Group Holding, City Edge, and Talaat Moustafa Group subsidiary Al Rehab Securitization are among the names expected to tap the market.
