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.
