The certificates represent the beneficial ownership in the trust, primary assets of which are 100 loans secured by 138 commercial properties having an aggregate principal balance of approximately $1.231 billion as of the cutoff date. The loans were contributed to the trust by The Royal Bank of Scotland; Wells Fargo Bank, National Association; Liberty Island Group I LLC; C-III Commercial Mortgage LLC; Basis Real Estate Capital II, LLC; and NCB, FSB.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Fitch Leverage: The Fitch debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) of 1.44x is better than the average 2012 DSCR of 1.24x. However, the Fitch loan to value (LTV) of 98.5% is slightly worse than the 2012 average LTV of 97.2%. Excluding the loans collateralized by co-operative housing (co-op) properties (4.53% of the pool), the Fitch DSCR and LTV are 1.33x and 101.4%, respectively.

Less Amortization and More Interest-Only Loans: The scheduled amortization for the entire transaction is 13.4%, which is lower than most recent transactions. Of note, 26.9% of the pool consists of interest-only loans, and 28.7% are partial interest-only loans, prior to amortizing. In addition, five of the top 10 loans are full-term interest-only.

Single-Tenant Exposure: Four of the top 10 loans are secured by properties 100% occupied by a single tenant. Top 10 loans with single-tenant concentrations include Merrill Lynch Office, Hensley & Co. Portfolio, Las Vegas Strip Walgreens, and Kraft - Three Lakes Drive.

Loan Concentration: The pool is considered to be moderately concentrated. The largest 10 loans account for 52.5% of the transaction, compared to the average 2011 and 2012 top 10 loan concentrations of 59.9% and 54.2%, respectively. In addition, the largest three loans account for 27.3% of the pool.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

For this transaction, Fitch's net cash flow (NCF) was 9.6% below the full-year 2011 net operating income (NOI) (for properties that 2011 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 severity on defaulted loans, and could result in potential rating actions on the certificates. Fitch evaluated the sensitivity of the ratings assigned to WFRBS 2013-C12 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 'Asf' 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 in the Rating Sensitivity section.

Key Rating Drivers and Rating Sensitivities are further described in the accompanying new issue report.

The Master Servicers will be Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and NCB, FSB, rated 'CMS2' and 'CMS2-', respectively by Fitch. The special servicers will be Rialto Capital Advisors, LLC and NCB, FSB rated 'CSS2-' and 'CSS3+', respectively, by Fitch.
