Release date- 19082019 - DBRS Limited (DBRS) confirmed the ratings on the following outstanding notes (the Notes) issued by Master Credit Card Trust II (the Trust).

The confirmation is part of DBRS's continued effort to provide timely credit rating opinions and increased transparency to market participants.

Credit Card Receivables-Backed Class B Notes, Series 2018-2 at AA (sf)

Credit Card Receivables-Backed Class C Notes, Series 2018-2 at BBB (sf)

Credit Card Receivables-Backed Class B Notes, Series 2018-4 at AA (sf)

Credit Card Receivables-Backed Class C Notes, Series 2018-4 at BBB (sf)

The rating confirmations are based on the following factors as of June 2019:

(1) The Notes benefit from excess spread, which has ranged between 19.3 and 21.1% in the last 12 months, and series-specific cash accounts that could build up to 5.0% of the initial or Maximum Allocated Amount, as applicable. For the AAA (sf)-rated notes and the AA (sf)-rated notes, credit enhancement is also available through subordination of at least 5.5% and 3.5%, respectively.

(2) The gross yield and principal payment rate have been stable, averaging 25.8% and 49.5%, respectively, over the last 12 months.

(3) After reaching a peak of 5.6% in February 2010, the one-month loss rate has gradually decreased, averaging 3.4% since then. As of June 2019, it has averaged 2.9% over the last 12 months and is among one of the lowest rates in Canada.

(4) The Trust pool is a well-diversified and seasoned portfolio composed of certain Mastercard credit card accounts originated, managed and designated by Bank of Montreal (BMO). BMO is the fourth-largest bank in Canada by assets and is rated AA/R-1 (high) with Stable trends by DBRS.

The performance and characteristics of the Trust pool and the Notes are available and updated each month in the Monthly Canadian ABS Report, which is available at www.dbrs.com. DBRS conducts monthly stress testing of each rated class of the Notes. The results indicate that simultaneous declines in yield and payment rates and increases in losses would not result in a failure of the Trust to repay the Notes on a timely basis. The severity of the tests applied is commensurate with the respective ratings of the Notes.
