NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) is pleased to announce the assignment of
preliminary ratings to seven classes of TRTX 2018-FL2, a $1.0 billion
managed commercial real estate collateralized loan obligation (CRE CLO)
securitization. The transaction will initially be collateralized by 23
pari passu interests in mortgage loans and two whole loans, which are
secured by 122 properties. The collateral consists of both
non-controlling interests (22 loans, 87.3%) and controlling interests
(3, 12.7%) in the related mortgage loans.
The subject transaction includes a 24-month reinvestment period during
which previously unidentified whole loans and senior participations can
be acquired using principal proceeds received from the mortgage assets.
In all cases, each reinvestment asset must satisfy the eligibility
criteria and the reinvestment criteria. The eligibility criteria
includes, among other things, maximum stabilized LTV and minimum
stabilized DSC requirements; pool level concentration limits for loan
size, property type, and geographic location; certain restrictions on
participation interests and future funding assets; and that the rating
condition must be satisfied with respect to KBRA.
KBRA’s analysis of the transaction involved a detailed evaluation of the
underlying cash flows using our U.S. CMBS Property Evaluation
Methodology and the application of our U.S. CMBS Multi-Borrower Rating
Methodology. The analysis resulted in KBRA’s values to be, on average,
41.4% and 50.8% lower than the appraiser’s as-is values and stabilized
values, respectively. The resulting in-trust KBRA Loan to Value (KLTV),
assuming that all the future funding commitments are fully funded, was
126.9%. We also conducted scenario analyses to evaluate and incorporate
the impact of the transaction’s various structural features in our
ratings assignment process.
For complete details on the analysis, please see our pre-sale report, TRTX
2018-FL2 published at www.kbra.com.
The preliminary ratings are based on information known to KBRA at the
time of this publication. Information received subsequent to this
