NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns a final rating to the Class A
notes of Harvest SBA Loan Trust 2018-1 LLC, Series 2018-1, a
securitization collateralized by the unguaranteed portion of Small
Business Administration (“SBA”) 7(a) loans.
The collateral consists of 298 SBA 7(a) loans with an unguaranteed
balance of $99.1 million, which represents approximately 25% of the full
outstanding current principal balance. The collateral has an average
loan balance of approximately $332.5 thousand and a weighted average
(WA) remaining term of approximately 279 months. All but seven loans are
amortizing, monthly pay, floating rate loans, with an original term of
25 years. The remaining seven are also floating rate loans but have
shorter original terms, either 10-year or 15-year. The obligors have a
WA FICO of 718 and the property used to collateralize the loans are all
51% or greater owner-occupied commercial real estate properties. The WA
appraisal loan to value (LTV) of the pool is 76.9%.
The transaction structure includes the Class A Notes, and two Ownership
Certificates, the Class OC-1 and Class OC-2. Credit enhancement for the
Class A Notes includes overcollateralization, a cash reserve account,
performance triggers and excess spread. The Class A Notes initially
benefited from 15% overcollateralization. The priority of payments
accelerates the repayment of the Class A Notes until a 68% advance rate
(32% overcollateralization) is achieved, at which point any additional
funds will continue through the priority of payments and ultimately
repay the Class OC-1 and Class OC-2 Certificates on a pro rata basis.
