NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#KBRA–KBRA is pleased to announce the assignment of preliminary ratings to eight classes of A10 BAF 2023-E, a $364.0 million CRE CLO with limited loan acquisition ability.
Initially, the transaction is expected to be collateralized by 20 collateral interests with an aggregate cutoff date in-trust balance of $308.4 million, $50.0 million of cash collateral for the anticipated acquisition of one pre-identified delayed close asset to be acquired within 90 days following the closing date, and a $5.6 million replenishable reserve held for reinvestment. The transaction permits the use of the $5.6 million initial reserve and certain principal collections to be used for the acquisition of future funded companion loan participations related to the initial transaction collateral during the life of the transaction. Additionally, the transaction includes a feature which provides the sponsor with the ability to buy out specially serviced assets.
This transaction also includes a par value (overcollateralization or OC) test and an interest coverage (IC) test. If either test is not satisfied on any determination date, on the following payment date, interest proceeds remaining after interest is paid to the Class E notes will be used to pay down the principal balances of the Class A through E notes in sequential order until the test is satisfied, or such classes of notes are paid in full.
