DBRS Ratings Limited (DBRS) discontinued and withdrew the ratings on the Senior Funding Facility and Mezzanine Funding Facility provided by Barclays Bank plc (Barclays or the Lender), on Anchorage Capital Europe CLO 3 DAC, at the request of the Lender.
The ratings of the facilities prior to their discontinuation and withdrawal were as follows:
-- Senior Funding Facility rated A (sf)
-- Mezzanine Funding Facility rated BBB (low) (sf)
All figures are in euros unless otherwise noted.
The principal methodology applicable to the ratings is “Rating CLOs and CDOs of Large Corporate Credit”.
In DBRS’s opinion, a discontinued-withdrawn rating action does not warrant the application of the entire principal methodology.
Other methodologies referenced in this transaction are listed at the end of this press release.
