Rating Action: Moody’s assigns provisional ratings to eight CMBS classes of BBCMS Mortgage Trust 2022-C14Global Credit Research – 26 Jan 2022$746.071 million of structured securities affectedNew York, January 26, 2022 — Moody’s Investors Service (“Moody’s”) has assigned provisional ratings to eight classes of CMBS securities, to be issued by BBCMS Mortgage Trust 2022-C14, Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2022-C14 as follows:Cl. A-1, Assigned (P)Aaa (sf)Cl. A-2, Assigned (P)Aaa (sf)Cl. A-3, Assigned (P)Aaa (sf)Cl. A-4, Assigned (P)Aaa (sf)Cl. A-5, Assigned (P)Aaa (sf)Cl. A-S, Assigned (P)Aa2 (sf)Cl. A-SB, Assigned (P)Aaa (sf)Cl. X-A*, Assigned (P)Aaa (sf)*Reflects Interest-Only ClassRATINGS RATIONALEThe Certificates are collateralized by 57 loans secured by 83 properties. The ratings are based on the collateral and the structure of the transaction and the following Structured Credit Assessments:We assigned an investment grade of a2 (sca.pd) to the Coleman Highline Phase IV Loan, which represents approximately 7.6% of the pool balance. The loan is secured by the borrower’s fee simple interest in an eight-story, 603,363 SF, LEED Silver certified, Class A office property located on the Santa Clara/San Jose border in California.We assigned an investment grade of a2 (sca.pd) to the 1888 Century Park East Loan, which represents approximately 7.6% of the pool balance. The loan is secured by the borrower’s fee simple interest in a 20-story, 502,510 SF, LEED Platinum certified, Class A office property located in downtown Los Angeles, CA.We assigned an investment grade of a2 (sca.pd) to the The Summit Loan, which represents approximately 5.4% of the pool balance. The loan is secured by the borrower’s fee interest in a 907,306 SF Class A, office campus which includes three buildings and a seven-level 2,197 space subterranean parking garage located in the central business district of Bellevue, WA.Moody’s approach to rating CMBS deals combines both commercial real estate and structured finance analysis. Based on commercial real estate analysis, Moody’s determines the credit quality of each mortgage loan and calculates an expected loss on a loan specific basis. Under structured finance, the credit enhancement for each certificate typically depends on the expected frequency, severity, and timing of future losses. Moody’s also considers a range of qualitative issues as well as the transaction’s structural and legal aspects.The credit risk of loans is determined primarily by two factors: 1) Moody’s assessment of the probability of default, which is largely driven by each loan’s DSCR, and 2) Moody’s assessment of the severity of loss upon a default, which is largely driven by each loan’s loan-to-value ratio, referred to as the Moody’s LTV or MLTV. As described in the CMBS methodology used to rate this transaction, we make various adjustments to the MLTV. We adjust the MLTV for each loan using a value that reflects capitalization (cap) rates that are between our sustainable cap rates and market cap rates. We also use an adjusted loan balance that reflects each loan’s amortization profile.The Moody’s Actual DSCR of 2.25x (1.76x excluding credit assessed loans) is worse than the 2020 conduit/fusion transaction average of 2.69x (2.09x excluding credit assessed loans). The Moody’s Stressed DSCR of 0.93x (0.87x excluding credit assessed loans) is worse than the 2020 conduit/fusion transaction average of 1.07x (0.90x excluding credit assessed loans).The pooled trust loan balance of $926,796,554 represents a Moody’s LTV ratio of 112.6% (121.9% excluding credit assessed loans), which is higher than the 2020 conduit/fusion transaction average of 106.3% (115.8% excluding credit assessed loans). There are two loans in the pool structured with additional debt in the form of subordinate secured debt. With the additional debt, the Moody’s total debt LTV ratio rises to 123.1% (121.9% excluding credit assessed loans).The Moody’s adjusted LTV is 98.3% (106.6% excluding credit assessed loans) and is based on our adjusted Moody’s value taking into account the current interest rate environment.Moody’s also considers both loan level diversity and property level diversity when selecting a ratings approach. With respect to loan level diversity, the pool’s loan level Herfindahl score is 27.9 (29.4 excluding credit assessed loans). The transaction loan level diversity profile is slightly better than Moody’s-rated transactions during the trailing four quarters (ended Q4 2021), which averaged 27.4 (25.5 excluding credit assessed loans). With respect to property level diversity, the pool’s property level Herfindahl score is 35.8 (42.1 excluding credit assessed loans).The following notable strengths of the transaction include: three loans assigned an investment grade Structured Credit Assessment (“SCA”), market composition, and acquisition financing.The following notable concerns of the transaction include the pool’s high Moody’s LTV, interest only loan profile, and single tenant profile.Moody’s also grades properties on a scale of 0 to 5 (best to worst) and considers those grades when assessing the likelihood of debt payment. The factors considered include property age, quality of construction, location, market, and tenancy. The pool’s weighted average property quality grade is 2.05 (2.39 excluding credit assessed loans), which is slightly worse than the trailing four quarter (ended Q4 2021) transaction average of 2.02 (2.10 excluding credit assessed loans).The principal methodology used in rating all classes except interest-only classes was “US and Canadian Conduit/Fusion Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securitizations Methodology” published in November 2021 and available at https://www.moodys.com/researchdocumentcontentpage.aspx?docid=PBS_1258254. The methodologies used in rating interest-only classes were “US and Canadian Conduit/Fusion Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securitizations Methodology” published in November 2021 and available at https://www.moodys.com/researchdocumentcontentpage.aspx?docid=PBS_1258254 and “Moody’s Approach to Rating Structured Finance Interest-Only (IO) Securities” published in February 2019 and available at https://www.moodys.com/researchdocumentcontentpage.aspx?docid=PBS_1111179. Please see the list of ratings at the top of this announcement to identify which classes are interest-only (indicated by the *). Alternatively, please see the Rating Methodologies page on www.moodys.com for a copy of these methodologies.Moody’s analysis of credit enhancement levels for conduit deals is driven by property type, Moody’s actual and stressed DSCR, and Moody’s property quality grade (which reflects the capitalization rate Moody’s uses to estimate Moody’s value). Moody’s fuses the conduit results with the results of its analysis of investment-grade structured credit assessed loans and any conduit loan that represents 10% or greater of the current pool balance.Moody’s analysis considers the following inputs to calculate the proposed IO rating based on the published methodology: original and current bond ratings and credit estimates; original and current bond balances grossed up for losses for all bonds the IO(s) reference(s) within the transaction; and IO type corresponding to an IO type as defined in the published methodology.Factors that would lead to an upgrade or downgrade of the ratings:The performance expectations for a given variable indicate Moody’s forward-looking view of the likely range of performance over the medium term. Performance that falls outside the given range may indicate that the collateral’s credit quality is stronger or weaker than Moody’s had previously anticipated. Factors that may cause an upgrade of the ratings include significant loan paydowns or amortization, an increase in the pool’s share of defeasance or overall improved pool performance. Factors that may cause a downgrade of the ratings include a decline in the overall performance of the pool, loan concentration, increased expected losses from specially serviced and troubled loans or interest shortfalls.REGULATORY DISCLOSURESFor further specification of Moody’s key rating assumptions and sensitivity analysis, see the sections Methodology Assumptions and Sensitivity to Assumptions in the disclosure form. Moody’s Rating Symbols and Definitions can be found at: https://www.moodys.com/researchdocumentcontentpage.aspx?docid=PBC_79004.Further information on the representations and warranties and enforcement mechanisms available to investors are available on http://www.moodys.com/researchdocumentcontentpage.aspx?docid=PBS_1316405.The analysis includes an assessment of collateral characteristics and performance to determine the expected collateral loss or a range of expected collateral losses or cash flows to the rated instruments. As a second step, Moody’s estimates expected collateral losses or cash flows using a quantitative tool that takes into account credit enhancement, loss allocation and other structural features, to derive the expected loss for each rated instrument.Moody’s quantitative analysis entails an evaluation of scenarios that stress factors contributing to sensitivity of ratings and take into account the likelihood of severe collateral losses or impaired cash flows. Moody’s weights the impact on the rated instruments based on its assumptions of the likelihood of the events in such scenarios occurring.For ratings issued on a program, series, category/class of debt or security this announcement provides certain regulatory disclosures in relation to each rating of a subsequently issued bond or note of the same series, category/class of debt, security or pursuant to a program for which the ratings are derived exclusively from existing ratings in accordance with Moody’s rating practices.
