KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to FREMF 2020-K111 and Freddie Mac Structured Pass-Through Certificate Series K-111

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) is pleased to announce the assignment of preliminary ratings to four classes of FREMF Series 2020-K111 mortgage pass-through certificates and three classes of Freddie Mac structured pass-through certificates (SPCs), Series K-111. FREMF 2020-K111 is a $1.3 billion CMBS multi-borrower transaction. Freddie Mac will guarantee six classes of certificates issued in the underlying Series 2020-K111 securitization and will deposit the guaranteed underlying certificates into a separate trust that will issue the SPCs.

The underlying transaction is collateralized by 49 fixed-rate multifamily mortgage loans. The loans have principal balances that range from $1.8 million to $100.8 million. The largest exposure is represented by The Courtyards At Buckley (8.1%), a 688-unit, garden-style multifamily complex located in Aurora, Colorado. The five largest loans represent 29.8% of the cut-off date balance and also include Multifamily Crossed Loan Portfolio (7.5%), MHC Crossed Loan Portfolio (5.4%), The Summit At Red Rocks (4.6%), and Waltham Overlook (4.3%). The assets are located in 21 states, with the three largest concentrations in Colorado (17.7%), Florida (15.1%), and Texas (11.8%).

KBRA’s analysis of the underlying transaction incorporated our CMBS Multi-Borrower rating process that begins with our analysts’ evaluation of the underlying collateral properties’ financial and operating performance, which is used to determine KBRA’s estimate of sustainable net cash flow (KNCF) and KBRA value using our U.S. CMBS Property Evaluation Methodology. KBRA’s weighted average KNCF for the portfolio is 4.6% less than the issuer’s NCF. KBRA capitalization rates were applied to each asset’s KNCF to derive individual property values that, on an aggregate basis, were 44.9% less than third-party appraisal values. The weighted average KBRA capitalization rate for the transaction is 8.61%. The KBRA credit model deploys rent and occupancy stresses, probability of default regressions, and loss-given default calculations to determine losses for each collateral loan, which are then used to assign our credit ratings.
