NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) is pleased to announce the assignment of preliminary ratings to eight classes of Tharaldson Hotel Portfolio Trust 2018-THPT, a $960.0 million CMBS single-asset, single-borrower transaction.
The collateral for the securitization consists of a $960.0 million non-recourse, first lien, floating-rate mortgage loan that is secured by the borrowers’ fee simple interests in 118 lodging properties totaling 11,032 keys and leasehold interests in 17 lodging assets totaling 1,442 keys. For the TTM 9/2017 period, the portfolio’s occupancy was 70.9% with an average daily rate (ADR) of $114.04, resulting in revenue per available room (RevPAR) of $80.85.
The underlying collateral consists of 41 extended-stay properties (39.7%), 72 limited-service properties (32.2%), 16 select-service properties (16.5%) and six full-service properties (11.5%) located in 68 different MSAs in 28 states. The properties are operated under 20 national flags, and the five largest flags by portfolio balance are as follows: Residence Inn (29 properties, 29.9%), Courtyard (16, 16.5%), Fairfield Inn (31, 11.8%) Hampton Inn (14, 8.8%) and Homewood Suites (nine, 7.5%).
KBRA’s analysis of the transaction included a detailed evaluation of the properties’ cash flows using our CMBS Property Evaluation Methodology and the application of our CMBS Single Borrower and Large Loan Rating Methodology. The results of our analysis yielded a KBRA net cash flow (KNCF) for the portfolio of $99.2 million. To value the portfolio, KBRA applied a blended capitalization rate of 11.48% to arrive at a KBRA value of $864.3 million. The resulting KBRA Loan to Value (KLTV) is 111.1%. In our analysis of the transaction, we considered the third-party engineering, environmental, seismic, and appraisal reports; management and franchise agreements; the results of our site inspections; and legal documentation.
