KBRA’s analysis of the transaction included a detailed evaluation of the hotel’ cash flows using our CMBS Property Evaluation Guidelines, and the application of our CMBS Single Borrower & Large Loan Rating Methodology. The results of our analysis yielded a KBRA Net Cash Flow (KNCF) of $36.0 million for the CBM Portfolio and $14.4 million for the Grove Park Inn. To value the properties, we applied individual capitalization rates to each property’s KNCF. The average capitalization rate was 11.30% for the CBM Portfolio. A capitalization rate of 10.75% was used for Grove Park Inn. The results of our analysis resulted in a value of $318.7 million for the CBM Portfolio, which is 33.9% less than the third party appraisal value and $134.1 million for Grove Park Inn which is 31.1% off the appraisal value.
