Deal Name: Cafes 1
Class: Class A-1 through D-2 Trust Certificates
Issue Amount (initial): JPY 53.2 billion
Issue Date (initial): 21 July, 2006
Legal Final Maturity: May, 2018

Arranger: Calyon Capital Markets Asia B.V., Tokyo Branch (as of the issue date)
Cafes 1 is a single-asset/single-borrower CMBS deal, effected in July 2006.
The Originator entrusted a loan to the Asset Trustee, and received the Class A-1 through D-2 trust certificates, which it then sold through the Arranger to investors. The trust certificates are rated by Moody's.
Dividends on the rated Trust Certificates are made using interest collections as non-recourse loan interest. The incurred losses from the non-recourse loan will be allocated in reverse sequential order, starting with the most subordinate class of the Trust Certificates.
The transaction is backed by a large office building in Tokyo.
In its review , Moody's needs to re-assess its stabilized cash flows and values in light of the rental conditions in sub-markets around the property, as well as confirm the performance of the property, including occupancy rates and actual rents.
In addition, the advancing provider on this deal has not been replaced to eligible advancing provider since occurrence of advancing provider replacement event. So, Moody's will interview the relevant parties and monitor that the advancing provider will be replaced or not, to decide whether to confirm or downgrade.
