KBRA Credit Profile (KCP) K-LOC Index: May 2019

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its KBRA Credit Profile (KCP)
K-LOC Index for the month of May.

K-LOC Index

The KBRA Loan of Concern (K-LOC) Index was 7.94% in May 2019. During the
month, there were 48 K-LOCs identified across our coverage universe of
post-crisis (2.0) CMBS, with an aggregate unpaid principal balance of
$590.5 million.

About the Index

The May 2019 Index is a composite of 1,315 K-LOCs with an aggregate UPB
of $24.21 billion across 286 post-crisis conduit transactions. For any
given cohort, the Index is the quotient of its aggregate K-LOC balance
and the cohort’s defeasance adjusted UPB. As it includes loans at risk
of default, it is a useful, forward-looking credit barometer, and leads
the current CMBS conduit delinquency rate by a factor of 7.54. However,
it is a more refined gauge of credit risk than the servicer watchlist,
as the K-LOC designation is determined by our team of analysts, which
perform in-depth monthly analysis on individual transactions and the
underlying loan collateral.
