Freddie Mac has priced an offering of approximately $496 million in structured pass-through certificates, which are multifamily mortgage-backed securities.
The K-F26 certificates are backed by floating-rate multifamily mortgages with predominantly 10-year terms. The certificates are expected to settle on or about Dec. 23.
The certificates, which will not be rated, are backed by corresponding classes issued by the FREMF 2016-KF26 mortgage trust and guaranteed by Freddie Mac. The trust will also issue certificates consisting of Class B, C and R certificates, which will be subordinate to the classes backing the K-F26 certificates. The KF26 trust Class B, C and R certificates will not be guaranteed by Freddie Mac.
Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC will serve as lead manager and book runner. Academy Securities Inc., Merrill Lynch Pierce Fenner & Smith Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Jefferies LLC will act as co-managers.
