Cabela’s Incorporated announced that Cabela’s Credit Card Master Note Trust successfully completed the sale of $400 million of Asset-Backed Notes, Series 2014-II. The securitization transaction included the issuance of $340 million of Class A Notes, which accrue interest at a floating rate equal to one-month LIBOR plus 0.45% per year. The securitization transaction also included the issuance of three subordinated classes of notes in the aggregate principal amount of $60 million.
World's Foremost Bank, Cabela’s wholly owned subsidiary, purchased each of the subordinated classes of notes. Each class of notes issued in the securitization transaction has an expected life of approximately five years, with a legal maturity of approximately eight years. This securitization transaction will help finance the growth of World’s Foremost Bank’s credit card portfolio.
“We are excited to announce the completion of our second public term securitization in 2014,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “Series 2014-II was well received by the market, and we are very pleased with both the pricing and execution of the transaction. We were able to price the transaction at a more favorable rate than our five year term securitization completed in August 2013. The execution of this transaction demonstrates the continued quality and strength of the Cabela’s CLUB Visa portfolio.”
