DBRS Ratings Limited (DBRS) discontinued its ratings of the Commercial Mortgage-Backed Floating-Rate Notes Due May 2022 (the Notes) issued by Taurus CMBS UK 2014-1 Limited as the Notes have been fully repaid with the November 2018 remittance. This concludes DBRS’s surveillance of this transaction.
All figures are in British pound sterling unless otherwise noted.
The principal methodology applicable to the ratings is: “European CMBS Rating and Surveillance Methodology”.
DBRS has applied the principal methodology consistently and conducted a review of the transaction in accordance with the surveillance section of the principal methodology.
In DBRS’s opinion, a discontinued-repaid rating action does not warrant the application of the entire principal methodology, as the bond has been repaid in full.
Other methodologies referenced in this transaction are listed at the end of this press release.
