KBRA Revises Loan KPOs to Underperform for Nine CMBS Single-Borrower Office Transactions
KBRA revises the KBRA Performance Outlooks (KPO) for nine CMBS loans to Underperform following a sensitivity analysis of our 44 CMBS single-borrower securitizations that are secured by office properties. The analysis was part of KBRA's ongoing surveillance efforts to assess the potential impact of continued deterioration in the office sector amid weakening demand, coupled with a challenging commercial real estate finance landscape caused by rising interest rates and increasing liquidity constraints.
The review considered current property occupancy rates, near-term lease rollover risk, stressed KBRA debt service coverage (KDSC), KBRA debt yield (KDY), and near-term maturity risk for each loan, among other factors. In determining the KPO changes, KBRA also considered the location and quality of the collateral properties and the fundamentals of the relevant office markets.
A KPO is an assessment of Outperform, Perform, or Underperform based on recent and expected collateral performance. It is generally assigned to loans one year after securitization, during KBRA's first annual surveillance review, and is monitored thereafter. A KPO revision does not necessarily occur before a rating change or indicate a change is imminent. Rather, the KPO assessment provides an indication of performance and allows for comparison to other loans.
