DBRS Morningstar Assigns Provisional Ratings to the Class A1 Notes, Class A2 Notes, and Class A3 Notes to be Issued by Bayview Financing SBC Trust 2021-5F

September 02, 2021

DBRS, Inc. (DBRS Morningstar) assigned the following provisional ratings to the Class A1 Notes, the Class A2 Notes, and the Class A3 Notes (together, the Notes) contemplated to be issued by Bayview Financing SBC Trust 2021-5F (the Issuer), pursuant to the Bayview Financing SBC Trust 2021-5F Preliminary Offering Memorandum (POM) dated as of September 2, 2021, as provided by Bayview Financing SBC Trust 2021-5F and its affiliates to DBRS Morningstar:

-- Class A1 Notes at A (low) (sf)
-- Class A2 Notes at BBB (low) (sf)
-- Class A3 Notes at BB (high) (sf)

The provisional ratings on the Notes address the ultimate payment of interest and the ultimate payment of principal on or before the Maturity Date (as defined in the POM referenced above).

Bayview Financing SBC Trust 2021-5F is a re-securitization of previously issued commercial mortgage-backed securities of Silver Hill Trust 2019-SBC1. Silver Hill Trust 2019-SBC1 is a small balance commercial (SBC) securitization that, at the time of closing, was collateralized by 978 first-lien loans secured primarily by commercial real estate, multifamily, and single-family rental properties, and, as of the July 2021 remittance report, was collateralized by 781 loans because of repayment.

The assets backing the Bayview Financing SBC Trust 2021-5F transaction consist of interest-only (IO) notes, and principal and interest (P&I) notes, and other subordinated notes issued by Silver Hill Trust 2019-SBC1. The Issuer will purchase approximately $305.7 million IO notes as well as approximately $123.8 million P&I notes such that the total principal amounts of P&I notes is equal to the total initial amount of the Notes.

DBRS Morningstar materially deviated from its RMBS methodology when determining the ratings assigned to the Notes by applying additional prepayment stresses in addition to the four prepayment stresses—5.0%, 10.0%, 15.0%, and 20.0%—applied on Silver Hill Trust 2019-1. The material deviation is warranted, given the sensitivity of IO secured notes of Silver Hill Trust 2019-SBC1 to the prepayment speed of the underlying SBC loans, DBRS Morningstar considered the additional prepayment stresses applied to be a conservative approach to stress the cash flows to service the principal and interest payments of the Notes.

The provisional ratings reflect the following:

(1) The POM dated September 2, 2020.

(2) The integrity of the proposed transaction structure.

(3) DBRS Morningstar’s assessment of the portfolio quality. DBRS Morningstar conducted its analysis on both Bayview Financing SBC Trust 2021-5F and Silver Hill Trust 2019-SBC1 by applying relevant methodologies and appropriate stresses.

(4) Adequate credit enhancement to withstand projected collateral loss rates under various cash flow stress scenarios.

(5) DBRS Morningstar’s assessment of the management capabilities of Bayview Asset Management, LLC and its affiliates as an acceptable servicer and special servicer for small balance commercial transactions.

As the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) spread around the world, certain countries imposed quarantines and lockdowns, including the United States, which accounts for more than one-fourth of confirmed cases worldwide. The coronavirus pandemic has negatively affected not only the economies of the nations most afflicted, but also the overall global economy with diminished demand for goods and services as well as disrupted supply chains. The effects of the pandemic may result in deteriorated financial conditions for many companies and obligors, some of which will experience the effects of such negative economic trends more than others. At the same time, governments and central banks in multiple regions, including the United States and Europe, have taken significant measures to mitigate the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.
