Nov 12 - Fitch Ratings has downgraded three classes of Banc of America
Commercial Mortgage Inc., series 2006-3 commercial mortgage pass-through
certificates. A detailed list of rating actions follows at the end of this press
The downgrades are due to an increase in Fitch expected losses, primarily from
the specially serviced loans. Fitch modeled losses of 11.6% of the remaining
pool; expected losses of the original pool are at 16.1%, including losses
already incurred to date. Fitch has designated 22 loans (23.2%) as Fitch Loans
of Concern, including 10 specially serviced loans (10.3 %).
As of the October 2012 distribution date, the pool's aggregate principal balance
has reduced by 18.1% to $1.61 billion from $1.96 billion at issuance. Interest
shortfalls are affecting classes B through P with cumulative unpaid interest
totaling $19.8 million.
The largest contributor to Fitch modeled losses (5%) is a 377,000 square foot
(sf) class A single-tenant office building located in Parsippany, NJ. Cendant,
the single tenant at the property, has signed a lease at another property and
will be vacating the entire building upon its October 2013 lease expiration
date. In November 2011, the Borrower requested a transition of the asset and
transfer of the deed to the Lender. The Deed-in-Lieu was executed in July 2012
and the property has since become a real estate owned (REO) asset.
The second largest contributor to Fitch modeled losses (6.3%) is secured by
573,370 sf of a 796,162-sf regional mall located in Sioux City, IA. The mall is
shadow anchored by Sears and JC Penney as neither of which are part of the
collateral. Second quarter 2012 (2Q'12) occupancy dropped to 85% from 93% at
YE2012 due to tenants vacating upon lease expirations. The servicer reported
2Q'12 debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) was 1.1x, compared to 1.31x at
The third largest contributor to Fitch modeled losses (4.1%) is secured by a
345-room hotel located in Phoenix, AZ, approximately 1.5 miles from the Phoenix
International Airport. The property faces strong market competition and has been
underperforming. Trailing 12-month (TTM) 1Q'12 DSCR was 0.85x, compared to 0.84x
at YE2011 and 0.80x at YE2010. DSCR at issuance was 1.44x.
The Rating Outlook on the class A-M remains Negative reflecting several highly
leveraged loans; nine of the top 15 loans have Fitch loan-to-value () ratios
over 90%. In addition, several of these loans have upcoming lease rollovers,
which remains a concern.
Fitch has downgraded the following classes:
--$196.5 million class A-M to 'Asf' from 'AAsf', Outlook Negative;
--$152.3 million class A-J to 'CCsf' from 'CCCsf'', RE 50%;
--$41.8 million class B to'Csf' from 'CCsf', RE 0%.
Fitch has affirmed the following classes:
--$41 million class A-3 at 'AAAsf', Outlook Stable;
--$1.01 billion class A-4 at 'AAAsf', Outlook Stable;
--$96.6 million class A-1A at 'AAAsf', Outlook Stable;
--$19.7 million class C at 'Csf', RE 0%;
--$31.9 million class D at 'Csf', RE 0%;
--$17.2 million class E at 'Csf', RE 0%;
--$0.8million class F at 'Dsf'; RE 0%.
Classes G, H, J, K, L and M have been reduced to zero due to realized losses and
remain at 'Dsf', RE 0%. Classes A-1 and A-2 have paid in full. Fitch does not
rate classes N, O or P.
Fitch has withdrawn the rating of the interest only class XW at prior review.
