The key characteristics of the mortgage loan collateral supporting CSMC Trust 2014-SURF are:

  • One mortgage loan secured by two luxury class hotel properties located in Santa Monica, Calif., including Shutters on the Beach and Casa del Mar;
  • The principal balance of the first mortgage loan, which is collateral for the trust, is $186.8 million; and
  • The financing provides for additional subordinate mezzanine debt totaling $183.2 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 $21.6 million, which is lower than the arranger's NCF by 7.3 percent;
  • The loan provides for a debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) of 4.74x based upon the current interest rates and LIBOR; based upon the Morningstar-stressed LIBOR rate of 3.0 percent, the DSCR is more conservative at 2.17x;
  • Morningstar valued the property using the direct capitalization method with its final aggregate value of approximately $276.8 million calculated using a 7.80 percent capitalization rate; and
  • The Morningstar value, which equates to $846,340 per room, is 45.3 percent lower than the appraised property value of $506.1 million. The Morningstar valuation resulted in a weighted-average loan-to-value ratio (LTV) of 67.5 percent for the first mortgage loan.
