Kroll Bond Rating Agency Assigns Preliminary Ratings to LMRK Issuer Co. LLC, Series 2016-1


Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns preliminary ratings to two classes of secured tenant site contract revenue notes, series 2016-1 (the "Notes") issued by LMRK Issuer Co. LLC.

Proceeds from the sale of the Notes will be used to purchase 623 sites leased to 48 primary tenants through 796 tenant leases. The sites will consist of real property interests in the form of fee estates, easements, and assignments. The portfolio will have an aggregate annualized revenue of approximately $15.911 million calculated for the month of May 2016.

This transaction represents the inaugural securitization for Landmark Infrastructure Partners GP LLC ("Landmark", the "Manager" or the "Company"). Landmark is a growth-oriented master limited partnership formed by Landmark Dividend LLC to acquire, own and manage a portfolio of real property interests that it leases to companies in the wireless communication, outdoor advertising and renewable power generation industries.

The transaction will benefit from sufficient credit support, along with a dynamic transaction structure that accelerates principal payments to the noteholders upon the weakening of collateral performance. Such structural features include cash trap conditions, servicer termination events and reserve accounts as further described in the LMRK Issuer Co. LLC, Series 2016-1 presale report.

KBRA analyzed the transaction using KBRA's General Rating Methodology for Asset-Backed Securities published on July 30, 2012.
