Distribution of largest debtors

Table 2 provides a breakdown of all debtor connections by size of nominal debt exposure. It should be noted that many of the debtors are also indebted to financial institutions which are not part of the NAMA scheme.

Valuation of assets

Bank assets (loans and derivative transactions) were acquired at an acquisition value which was determined in line with Part 5 of the NAMA Act and the Valuation Regulations which were made by the Minister and published on 5th March 2010. The reference valuation date for the valuation of all property assets was 30 November 2009.

The acquisition value of each bank asset is the long-term economic value of the loan (LEVL). Various factors are taken into account in the calculation of the LEVL, including the current market value of the security (typically real estate but also including non real estate assets, such as shares), the LEV of property and the market value of the bank asset.

The Valuation Regulations require that NAMA applies an uplift adjustment factor ranging from 0% to 25% to the current market value of property to reflect its long-term economic value (LEV). This is defined in the Act as the value that (a) a property can reasonably be expected to attain in a stable financial system when the crisis conditions prevailing at the passing of the Act are ameliorated and (b) in which a future price or yield of the property is consistent with reasonable expectations having regard to its long-term historical average.

The weighted average Property LEV (LEVP) uplift factor applied to acquired loans was 8.2%.


The discounts applied to nominal loan balances to derive an acquisition price are determined for the most part by the current market value of property securing the loans and, to a lesser extent, by further discounts made to reflect legal difficulties such as the extent to which security can be enforced or deficiencies in title. Table 3 summarises aggregate data for all acquired loans for which the overall discount was 57%.
