The key characteristics of the mortgage loan collateral supporting WFCM Trust 2014-TISH are:

  • Two non-cross-collateralized, non-cross defaulted two-year floating rate mortgage loans, each subject to three successive one-year extension options. The mortgage loans are secured by the borrower's leasehold interest in two full-service hotels, the Westin New York at Times Square and the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers; and
  • The aggregate principal balance of the first mortgage loan, which is collateral for the trust, is $381.0 million.

Based on information provided on the arranger's website, Morningstar's analysis of the loans yielded the following Morningstar metrics:

  • An aggregate net cash flow (NCF) of approximately $48.8 million, which is lower than the arranger's NCF by 5.6 percent;
  • The loan provides for a weighted-average current debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) of 6.00x based upon the current interest rates and LIBOR. Based upon the Morningstar-stressed LIBOR rate of 3.0 percent, its DSCR is more conservative at 2.56x;
  • Morningstar valued the property using the direct capitalization method with its final aggregate value of approximately $590.2 million, calculated using a weighted-average capitalization rate of 8.26 percent; and
  • The Morningstar value, which equates to $282,785 per room, is 38.5 percent lower than the appraised property value of $960.0 million. The Morningstar valuation resulted in a weighted-average loan-to-value ratio (LTV) of 64.6 percent for the first mortgage loan.

For complete details about the preliminary ratings of this transaction, Morningstar's Pre-Sale analysis package, including the Pre-Sale Report and the Representations, Warranties, and Enforcement Mechanisms, is available under the "Ratings Reports" tab on https://ratingagency.morningstar.com. Information subsequently received could result in the assignment of final ratings that differ from the preliminary ratings.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
