Kroll Bond Rating Agency Assigns Preliminary Ratings to DBCCRE 2014-ARCP
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) is pleased to announce the assignment of preliminary ratings for the DBCCRE 2014-ARCP transaction (see ratings list below). DBCCRE 2014-ARCP is a CMBS single borrower transaction that is collateralized by a $620.0 million first mortgage, 10-year, fixed rate loan that was originated by Cantor Commercial Real Estate Lending, L.P. and German American Capital Corporation on January 3, 2014. Proceeds from the mortgage loan will be used to recapitalize American Realty Capital Properties (NASDAQ: ARCP), the loan sponsor, which purchased all of the assets within the last 20 months with equity and existing unsecured credit facilities.
The loan is secured by the borrower’s fee and leasehold interests in 82 single-tenant retail (37.3% of allocated loan amount), office (35.6%), and industrial (27.1%) properties comprising approximately 7.2 million sf. The properties in the collateral pool are located in 30 states and Puerto Rico, with three states representing more than 10.0% of the ALA: Illinois (15.7%), Florida (11.0%), and Massachusetts (10.2%).
The properties are fully leased to 24 tenants with a weighted average lease term of 15 years, with three tenants representing more than 10.0% of the aggregate allocated loan amount: CVS Caremark (18.3%), Aon Corporation (14.9%), and Bi-Lo, LLC (10.2%). 68.0% of the tenants, including CVS Caremark and Aon Corporation, are High Quality Credit-Worthy Tenants (HQCWTs).
KBRA’s analysis of the transaction included a detailed evaluation of the resort’s cash flows using our CMBS Property Evaluation Guidelines, and the application of our CMBS Single Borrower & Large Loan Rating Methodology. The results of the analysis produced an individual KNCF for each property. We applied KBRA capitalization rates to each property’s KNCF to arrive at KBRA value. The analysis produced an aggregate KNCF and KBRA value of $59.4 million and $689.0 million, respectively. The resulting KLTV is 90.0%. In our analysis of the transaction, we also reviewed and considered third party engineering and environmental reports, as well as our own on-site inspections of the properties.
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.
