Kroll Bond Rating Agency Assigns Final Ratings to FREMF 2012-K23 and Freddie Mac Structured Pass-Through Certificates

NEW YORK--()--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigned its final ratings to seven classes of FREMF 2012-K23 mortgage pass-through certificates and three classes of Freddie Mac structured pass-through certificates (SPCs), Series K23, a $1.37 billion CMBS multi-borrower transaction. Concurrently, we have withdrawn our preliminary ratings on the certificates, which were assigned on December 4, 2012 (see our ratings listed below).

The transaction is collateralized by 76 fixed rate multifamily commercial mortgage loans that are secured by a single property across 26 states. The two largest concentrations are in California (18.3%) and Florida (12.5%). The majority of the properties are garden-style apartment projects (59 properties) which range in size from 15 to 1,098 units.

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 included a detailed evaluation of the underlying collateral properties’ financial and operating performance using our CMBS Property Evaluation Guidelines to determine Kroll Net Cash Flow (KNCF). The resulting KNCF for the collateral properties was 2.1% below issuer net cash flow on a weighted average basis. KBRA capitalization rates were applied to each asset’s KCNF to derive individual property values that, on an aggregate basis, were 36.6% less than third party appraisal values. The weighted average KBRA capitalization rate for the transaction was 8.5%.

The model deploys rent and occupancy stresses, probability of default regressions, and loss given default calculations to determine losses for each collateral loan that were used by KBRA to assign our credit ratings for this transaction.
