Kroll Bond Rating Agency Assigns Preliminary Ratings to FREMF 2017-K726 and Freddie Mac Structured Pass-Through Certificates K-0726


Kroll Bond Rating Agency, Inc. (KBRA) is pleased to announce the assignment of preliminary ratings to nine classes of FREMF Series 2017-K726 mortgage pass-through certificates and five classes of Freddie Mac structured pass-through certificates (SPCs), Series K-0726 (see ratings list below). FREMF Series 2017-K726 is a $1.1 billion CMBS multi-borrower transaction. Freddie Mac will guarantee six classes of certificates issued in the underlying Series 2017-K726 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 $$746,921 to $66.0 million. The largest exposure is represented by Park Vista (5.8%), an 800-unit, Class-B, garden-style multifamily complex located in Sparks, Nevada, approximately six miles east of the Reno CBD. The five largest loans represent 24.8% of the cut-off date balance and also include The Cascade At Morgan Falls (4.9%), The Parkway At Hunters Creek (4.8%), The Grove (4.6%), and Regency Park Apartments (4.6%). The assets are located in 22 states, with three representing more than 10.0% of the pool: Florida (15.2%), North Carolina (14.0%), and Texas (11.0%).

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 CMBS Property Evaluation Methodology. KBRA's weighted average KNCF for the portfolio is 4.1% 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 40.1% less than third party appraisal values. The weighted average KBRA capitalization rate for the transaction is 8.86%. 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.

For complete details of the analysis, please see our Pre-Sale Report, FREMF 2017-K726, published today at www.kbra.com. The report includes our KBRA Comparative Analytic Tool (KCAT). KCAT is an easy to use, Excel-based workbook that provides the following information:

  • KBRA Deal Tape - contains KBRA loan level details for every loan in the pool, and the ability for users to input adjustments to KNCF and KBRA Cap Rates and see the related impact on key deal metrics.
  • KBRA Credit Metrics Comparison Tool - Enables the user to compare the subject transaction to a user-defined transaction comp set.
  • Excel based property cash flow statements for the top 20 loans.

The preliminary ratings are based on information known to KBRA at the time of this publication. Information received subsequent to this release could result in the assignment of final ratings that differ from the preliminary ratings.
