KBRA Credit Profile (KCP) Releases Research – Sizing Up CMBS Exposure to Simon Property Group

NEW YORK–([1])–KBRA Credit Profile (KCP), a division of KBRA Analytics, releases a special report which identifies CMBS exposure to Simon Property Group (SPG) sponsorship and examines the credit risks of individual loans and properties using a variety of commercial real estate metrics, including in-line tenant occupancy, net cash flow, and debt yield. The examination also considers qualitative characteristics including anchor rosters, competitive landscape, and market tier.

SPG is the largest retail REIT and shopping mall operator in the U.S., including ownership of 83 properties collateralizing 73 CMBS loans ($14.47 billion) securitized across 151 transactions. But despite its size, operational expertise, and deep brand relationships, SPG is not immune to the adverse effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The company’s retail properties were closed, in aggregate, for approximately 10,500 days during Q2 2020 and rent abatements were provided to tenants for the period in which they were closed. In recent months, SPG revealed its intention to hand over the keys to four underperforming CMBS malls ($410.9 million). Other SPG properties in CMBS, through KCP’s analysis, exhibit similar credit profiles to the assets being conveyed to the lenders. While most SPG-sponsored loans reported current, KCP anticipates that the COVID-19 pandemic, among other factors, will continue to put downward pressure on retail loan performance and may limit SPG’s commitment to underperforming assets.

The KCP platform is a subscription-based surveillance service that covers over 1,100 commercial real estate (CRE) securitizations with an aggregate balance of over $700 billion. For each deal, monthly reports are posted to our website that contain color and commentary for CMBS transactions and their underlying loan collateral. Unlike other sources of valuation and loss data, which primarily rely on models, the service is supported by a dedicated team of analysts, who can more readily appreciate the nonhomogeneous nature of CRE, loan, and transaction structures, as well as imperfect servicer information.
