Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns a preliminary rating to one class of notes issued by Oasis 2021-1 LLC ("Oasis 2021-1"). The notes are newly issued asset backed securities (ABS) backed by litigation finance receivables. Oasis 2021-1 represents the third ABS collateralized by litigation finance receivables to be sponsored by Oasis Intermediate Holdco, LLC ("Oasis") and the first to include Oasis’ MedPort-branded ("MedPort") medical lien receivables. The previous transaction, Oasis 2020-2 LLC, closed on June 2, 2020. Oasis, through its operating subsidiaries, has a long history as an originator, underwriter and servicer of litigation finance receivables. Oasis is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oasis Parent, L.P. which is majority owned by Parthenon Investors IV, L.P. The MedPort receivables are originated by various originators with operating histories dating back to 2003. Oasis acquired the various MedPort originators on January 5, 2021.
The portfolio securing the notes has an aggregate discounted receivable balance ("ADPB") of approximately $139 million as of the statistical cutoff date. The ADPB is the aggregate discounted collections associated with the Oasis 2021-1 portfolio’s litigation funding receivables, litigation loan receivables, medical funding receivables and medical loan receivables. The discount rate used to calculate the ADPB is a percentage equal to the sum of the anticipated interest rate on the notes, the servicing fee rate of 1.50%, and an additional 0.10%. As of the statistical cutoff date, litigation receivables, Medport medical receivables and Key Health medical receivables comprise approximately 36%, 58% and 6% of the aggregate funded amount of the Oasis 2021-1 pool and have average advance to expected case settlement values of 9.5%, 31.6% and 29.5%, respectively.
