Octane Completes $300 Million Asset-Backed Securitization to Drive Continued Growth


AAA-Rating Follows Period of Strong Business Performance and Momentum

NEW YORK, March 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Octane® (Octane Lending, Inc.®), the fintech revolutionizing the buying experience for major recreational purchases, announced that it has closed a $300 million securitization ("OCTL 2024-1") collateralized by its fixed-rate installment powersports loans issued through its in-house lender, Roadrunner Financial®, Inc.

OCTL 2024-1 issued six classes of fixed-rate notes: Class A-1, Class A-2, Class B, Class C, Class D, and Class E, which Standard & Poor's (S&P)* and Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA)** rated as A-1+/K1+, AAA/AAA, AA/AA+, A/A+, BBB/BBB+, and BB/BB+ respectively, in a private offering pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The senior class of notes in Octane's three asset-backed securitizations of 2023, OCTL 2023-1, OCTL 2023-2, and OCTL 2023-3, were also rated AAA by both S&P*** and KBRA**** upon issuance.

Truist Securities acted as lead book-running manager and structuring agent, with J.P. Morgan Securities, ATLAS SP Partners, and Mizuho Americas serving as joint bookrunners. Octane saw a high level of demand for its notes. Additionally, Octane expanded its investor base by attracting new investors through this issuance, while maintaining the support of existing institutional investors.

"We're excited we could take advantage of the favorable ABS market and close a successful transaction with the support of an ever-growing mix of esteemed partners," said Steven Fernald, Chief Financial Officer at Octane. "Our strong capital markets execution remains a key differentiator for Octane as we continue to grow our business in the months and years ahead."

This is Octane's tenth ABS transaction since launching the program in December 2019. The company has completed more than $3.3 billion of asset-backed securitizations to date. Last month, Octane announced the sale of $280M in whole loans to Yieldstreet, a leading private market investing platform. Octane's capital markets strategy also includes committed warehouse facilities.

This transaction comes on the heels of several exciting milestones. Octane surpassed $4B in aggregate originations last week, and in January, the company announced a strategic agreement with Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. The company closed 2023 GAAP net income profitable, while growing its number of applications by 96% and launching three new innovative products to help dealerships grow their businesses.
