The top 10 loan exposures represent 55.5%. The properties are located in 28 states, and the three largest state concentrations are New York (24.2%), California (16.7%) and Florida (8.3%).

KBRA’s analysis of the transaction incorporated our multi-borrower rating process that begins with our analysts' evaluation of underlying collateral properties' financial and operating performance, which determine KBRA’s estimate of sustainable net cash flow (KNCF) and KBRA value. The analysis incorporates a detailed evaluation of underlying collateral properties’ financial and operating performance using our CMBS Property Evaluation Guidelines to determine Kroll Net Cash Flow (KNCF), which is a key input used in our credit modeling process. On an aggregate basis, KNCF was 6.6% less than the issuer cash flow. KBRA capitalization rates were applied to each asset’s KNCF to derive values that were, on an aggregate basis, 36.7% less than third party appraisal values. The pool has an in-trust KLTV of 97.7% and an all-in KLTV of 101.8%. The 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.
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.
