Notice Regarding LIBOR Transition
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. is providing an informational notice, solely in its capacity as trustee, indenture trustee, successor trustee, and/or trustee roles for certain residential mortgage-backed securitization trusts regarding the potential cessation of LIBOR. As has been widely reported, on March 5, 2021, the ICE Benchmark Administration stated that it would cease publication of most USD LIBOR settings after June 30, 2023. Any party seeking to discuss any instruction, direction, or inquiry regarding the issues described in, or related to, this Notice may do so by contacting the Trustee consistent with the process described therein.
CMBS Reporting Change
CMBS is transitioning to a new reporting platform beginning with the September cycle. Delays in the availability of reports is expected, mostly with respect to the distribution date statements as additional time is being taken to review the data prior to posting.
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. will be making enhancements to the Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities (CMBS) Distribution Date Statements beginning in September 2021 (originally scheduled for August). CRE-CLOs are expected to follow the new reporting beginning in September 2021 as well.
