NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) is pleased to announce the assignment of
preliminary ratings to 16 classes of GSMS 2019-GC40 (see ratings list
below), a $914.2 million CMBS conduit transaction collateralized by 35
commercial mortgage loans secured by 44 properties.
The collateral properties are located in 19 states, with two states
representing more than 10.0% of the pool balance: New York (26.7%) and
California (19.3%). Hawaii (8.2%) rounds out the top three state
exposures. The pool has exposure to all of the property types, with the
top three being office (34.3%), industrial (21.2%), and mixed-use
(17.8%). The loans have principal balances ranging from $3.3 to $78.0
million for the largest loan in the pool, Diamondback Industrial
Portfolio 2 (8.5%), which is secured by three single tenant
warehouse/distribution industrial properties located in three states
that together comprise 2.5 million sf. The five largest loans, which
also include 250 Livingston (8.2%), Waterfront Plaza (8.2%), 101
California Street (7.9%), and Moffett Towers II Building V (6.8%),
represent 39.7% of the initial pool balance, while the top 10 loans
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 9.7% 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, 39.8% less than third party appraisal values. The pool
has an in-trust KLTV of 89.5% and an all-in KLTV of 105.4%. 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.
