the cut-off date. The loans were contributed to the trust by JP Morgan
Chase Bank, National Association and German American Capital Corporation.

including site inspections on 86% of the properties by balance and asset
summary reviews and cash flow analysis of 92% of the pool.
KEY RATING DRIVERS
Low Fitch Leverage: This transaction has lower leverage than other
Fitch-rated transactions. The Fitch debt service coverage ratio (DSCR)
for the trust is 1.26x, while the YTD 2016 and 2015 averages are 1.17x
and 1.18x, respectively. The Fitch loan-to-value (LTV) for the trust is
99.9%, which is lower than both the respective YTD 2016 and 2015
averages of 107.9% and 109.3%. Excluding the credit-opinion loans (10.1%
of the pool), the Fitch DSCR and LTV are 1.21x and 105.1%, respectively.
Concentrated Pool with Low Loan Count: The pool is more concentrated
than other recent Fitch-rated multiborrower transactions. The top 10
loans comprise 59.5% of the pool, which is above recent averages of
55.8% for YTD 2016 and above the 2015 average of 49.3%. Additionally,
the loan concentration index (LCI) and sponsor concentration index (SCI)
are 481 and 653, respectively, above 2015 averages of 367 and 410.
Investment-Grade Credit Opinion Loans: The transaction has two credit
opinion loans, totaling 10.1% of the pool. 787 Seventh Ave (6.7% of the
pool) is the third largest loan in the transaction and has an
investment-grade credit opinion of 'BBB+sf' on a stand-alone basis.
Palisades Center (3.4% of the pool) is the 14th largest loan in the
transaction and has an investment-grade credit opinion of 'AAsf' on a
stand-alone basis. Excluding these loans, the conduit has a Fitch
stressed DSCR of 1.21x and LTV 105.1%, respectively. The implied credit
enhancement levels for the conduit portion of the transaction rated
'AAAsf' and 'BBB-sf' are 23.875% and 8.375%, respectively.
For this transaction, Fitch's net cash flow (NCF) was 15% below the most
recent year's net operating income (NOI; for properties for which a
full-year NOI was provided, excluding properties that were stabilizing
during this period). Unanticipated further declines in property-level
NCF could result in higher defaults and loss severities on defaulted
loans and in potential rating actions on the certificates.
Fitch evaluated the sensitivity of the ratings assigned to JPMDB 2016-C2
certificates and found that the transaction displays average sensitivity
to further declines in NCF. In a scenario in which NCF declined a
further 20% from Fitch's NCF, a downgrade of the junior 'AAAsf'
certificates to 'A-sf' could result. In a more severe scenario, in which
NCF declined a further 30% from Fitch's NCF, a downgrade of the junior
'AAAsf' certificates to 'BBB-sf' could result. The presale report
includes a detailed explanation of additional stresses and sensitivities
on page 12.
