DBRS Ratings Limited (DBRS) discontinued its ratings of the Class A, Class B, Class C, Class D, Class E and Class F notes (the Notes) issued by Thrones 2014-1 Plc.
The discontinuation reflects the repayment in full of the Notes on 15 August 2019. The ratings and remaining balances of the Notes prior to their payment in full were as follows:
-- Class A Notes rated AAA (sf) with a balance of GBP 78,166,060.05
-- Class B Notes rated AA (high) (sf) with a balance of GBP 32,230,000.00
-- Class C Notes rated A (sf) with a balance of GBP 29,160,000.00
-- Class D Notes rated BBB (sf) with a balance of GBP 23,020,000.00
-- Class E Notes rated BB (sf) with a balance of GBP 16,880,000.00
-- Class F Notes rated B (sf) with a balance of GBP 4,600,000.00
All figures are in British pound sterling unless otherwise noted.
The principal methodology applicable to the ratings is the “Master European Structured Finance Surveillance 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.
