KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to MSC 2019-L3
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 4, 2019--
Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) is pleased to announce the assignment of preliminary ratings to 19 classes of MSC 2019-L3 (see ratings list below), a $1.0 billion CMBS conduit transaction collateralized by 51 commercial mortgage loans secured by 100 properties.
The collateral properties are located in 27 states, with the top three states represented by New York (14.9%), California (13.0%), and Florida (8.9%). The pool has exposure to all the major property types, with the top three being office (25.8%), multifamily (24.1%), and retail (16.1%). The loans have principal balances ranging from $1.7 million to $70.0 million for the largest loan in the pool, GNL Office and Industrial Portfolio (6.9%), which is secured by 12 single-tenant industrial and office properties located in 10 states that together comprise 2.2 million sf. The five largest loans, which also include Parklawn Building (6.9%), East Village Multifamily Portfolio (5.9%), Grand Canal Shoppes (5.3%) and ILPT Industrial Portfolio (4.9%), represent 29.8% of the initial pool balance, while the top 10 loans represent 50.2%.
KBRA’s analysis of the transaction incorporated our multi-borrower rating process that begins with our analysts’ evaluation of the underlying collateral properties’ financial and operating performance, which determine KBRA’s estimate of sustainable net cash flow (KNCF) and KBRA value using our U.S. CMBS Property Evaluation Methodology. On an aggregate basis, KNCF was 5.8% less than the issuer cash flow. KBRA capitalization rates were applied to each asset’s KNCF to derive values that were, on an aggregate basis, 41.2% less than third party appraisal values. The pool has an in-trust KLTV of 99.7% and an all-in KLTV of 103.6%. The model deploys rent and occupancy stresses, probability of default regressions, and loss given default calculations to determine losses for each collateral loan that are then used to assign our credit ratings.
