KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to Benchmark 2022-B37

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#KBRA–KBRA is pleased to announce the assignment of preliminary ratings to 18 classes of BMARK 2022-B37, a $832.5 million CMBS conduit transaction collateralized by 39 commercial mortgage loans secured by 90 properties.

The collateral properties are located throughout 45 MSAs, of which the three largest are New York (22.2%), Detroit (7.0%), and Jacksonville (6.0%). The pool has exposure to all major property types, with three types representing more than 10.0% of the pool balance: office (26.0%), retail (24.7%), and lodging (13.5%). The loans have principal balances ranging from $4.0 million to $62.5 million for the largest loan in the pool, Park West Village (7.5%), which is secured by an 850-unit multifamily property located in New York City’s borough of Manhattan. The five largest loans, which also include 330 West 34th Street Leased Fee (7.2%), IPG Portfolio (7.2%), Hyatt Regency Jacksonville (6.0%), and 469 7th Avenue (5.9%), represent 33.8% of the initial pool balance, while the top 10 loans represent 56.4%.

KBRA’s analysis of the transaction incorporated our multi-borrower rating process that begins with our analysts’ evaluation of the underlying collateral properties’ financial and operating performance, which determine KBRA’s estimate of sustainable net cash flow (KNCF) and KBRA value using our U.S. CMBS Property Evaluation Methodology. On an aggregate basis, KNCF was 10.4% 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, 45.3% less than third party appraisal values. The pool has an in-trust KLTV of 89.3% and an all-in KLTV of 95.9%. The model deploys rent and occupancy stresses, probability of default regressions, and loss given default calculations to determine losses for each collateral loan that are then used to assign our credit ratings.
