The K-AIV Certificates will be offered to the market by a syndicate of dealers led by Bank of America Merrill Lynch and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC as co-lead managers and joint bookrunners for the transaction. Barclays Capital Inc. and Jefferies & Company, Inc. have been named co-managers for the transaction.
"We are very pleased to offer this new K deal, the first one backed by multiple loans from a single borrower. We expect to periodically issue these types of deals and others with loans from a single property and/or single borrower. It's the continuing evolution of K deals, which includes loans on conventional, student, senior and targeted affordable multifamily properties," said David Brickman, national head of Multifamily and CMBS Capital Markets for Freddie Mac. The first single loan K Certificate from a single borrower was the March 2010 K-SCT transaction backed by the Starrett City property in Brooklyn.
The K-AIV Certificates are backed by 19 recently-originated multifamily mortgages and are guaranteed by Freddie Mac.
Freddie Mac is a leading issuer of agency-guaranteed structured multifamily securities and has brought to market six K deals this year, including K-AIV, with an issuance size of about $1 billion each. K-deals feature a wide range of investor options with stable cash flows and a structured credit enhancement. K-deals include guaranteed senior and interest only classes. The related underlying private label trust includes unguaranteed mezzanine, subordinate and interest only bonds.
