KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to GS Mortgage Securities Corporation Trust 2020-TWN3

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) announces the assignment of preliminary ratings to 11 classes of GS Mortgage Securities Corporation Trust 2020-TWN3, a CMBS single-borrower securitization.

The collateral for the transaction consists of a $265.0 million non-recourse, first lien, floating-rate mortgage loan that is secured by the borrowers’ fee simple interests in 58 hotels totaling 7,140 keys. For the TTM 8/2020 period, the portfolio’s occupancy was 75.0% with an average daily rate (ADR) of $43.19, resulting in revenue per available room (RevPAR) of $32.41. The underlying collateral consists of 50 economy extended-stay properties operating under the InTown Suites flag located in 12 states and eight midscale extended-stay properties operating under the Uptown Suites flag located in five states.

KBRA’s analysis of the transaction included a detailed evaluation of the properties’ cash flows using our U.S. CMBS Property Evaluation Methodology and the application of our U.S. CMBS Single Borrower & Large Loan Rating Methodology. In addition, KBRA also relied on its Global Structured Finance Counterparty Methodology for assessing counterparty risk in this transaction, to the extent deemed applicable. The results of our analysis yielded a KBRA net cash flow (KNCF) for the portfolio of roundly $29.8 million. To value the portfolio, we applied a blended capitalization rate of 12.21% to arrive at a KBRA value of approximately $244.4 million ($34,229 per key). The resulting KBRA Loan to Value (KLTV) is 108.4%. In our analysis of the transaction, we also reviewed and considered third party engineering, environmental, and appraisal reports; management agreements; the results of our site inspections, and legal documentation.
