All trends are Stable.

The initial collateral consists of 45 floating-rate mortgage loans secured by 61 transitional multifamily and manufactured housing properties, totaling $1.74 billion (61.3% of the total fully funded balance), excluding $265.8 million (9.4% of the total fully funded balance) of future funding commitments and $830.3 million (29.3% of the total fully funded balance) of pari passu debt. Five loans, representing 9.6% of the total Trust balance, are delayed-close mortgage assets, which are identified in the data tape and included in the DBRS Morningstar analysis. The Issuer has 45 days post-closing to acquire the delayed-close assets. If a delayed-close mortgage asset is not expected to close or fund prior to the purchase termination date, then any amounts remaining in the unused proceeds account up to $5.0 million will be deposited into the replenishment account. Any funds in excess of $5.0 million will be transferred to the payment account and applied as principal proceeds in accordance with the priority of payments.

The Managed transaction includes a 24-month reinvestment period. As part of the reinvestment period, the transaction includes a 120-day ramp-up acquisition period that will be used to increase the Trust balance by $64,442,434 to a total target collateral principal balance of $1,800,000,000. DBRS Morningstar assessed the ramp loans using a conservative pool construct and, as a result, the ramp loans have expected losses above the pool weighted average loan expected losses. Reinvestment of principal proceeds during the reinvestment period is subject to eligibility criteria, which, among other criteria, includes a no-downgrade Rating Agency Confirmation (RAC) by DBRS Morningstar for all new mortgage assets and funded companion participations. If a delayed-close asset is not expected to close or fund prior to the purchase termination date, the Issuer may acquire any delayed-closed collateral interest at any time during the ramp-up acquisition period. The eligibility criteria indicates that only multifamily, manufactured housing, and student housing properties can be brought into the pool during the stated ramp-up acquisition period. Additionally, the eligibility criteria establishes minimum debt service coverage ratio, loan-to-value ratio, and Herfindahl requirements. Furthermore, certain events within the transaction require the Issuer to obtain RAC. DBRS Morningstar will confirm that a proposed action or failure to act or other specified event will not, in and of itself, result in the downgrade or withdrawal of the current rating. The Issuer is required to obtain RAC for all acquisitions of companion participations.
