2 Overview Standard & Poors (S&P) defines unenhanced affordable housing projects (AHP) as public-purpose real estate supported by below-market rents. While many affordable housing transactions are structured with credit enhancement, AHP projects are sized and rated based on the strength of the underlying real estate. The analysis of AHP projects focuses on the following criteria: – Real estate quality – Legal structure – Property performance – Strength of Sponsor – Construction risk (if any) and lease-up risk It usually takes days to close (this may be expedited with an experienced team) Slide | 2

3 Third party reports and supporting documentation Standard & Poors will generally review independent third-party reports as part of the rating process. These reports include: – Profile reports 1 – Appraisal – Market study – Phase I Environmental – Physical needs assessment (PNA) – Financial audits (most recent three years) – Original HAP contract and HAP assignment – Current and historical rent rolls Notes: 1Profile report templates are provided by Standard & Poors and include Sponsor, Property Manager, Asset Manager, and Property Slide | 3

4 Financing Assumptions While each AHP is different, Standard & Poors will generally look for the following assumptions in the financing: – DSC of 1.20x 1 – Underwriting is based on stabilized NOI – Occupancy assumptions based on historical trends – Reserve fund funded with proceeds and sized at 50% maximum annual debt service – Repair and replacement reserves – $325 to $350 per unit for properties that are 15 to 20 years old – S&P will also refer to the PNA report – 35-year amortization Notes: 1DSC of 1.40x for AHP without Section 8 HAP Contract Slide | 4
