DBRS Ratings Limited (DBRS) discontinued and withdrew the ratings on the Senior A Notes and the Senior B Notes issued by Mortar No. 1 Limited, at the request of Natixis S.A, London branch, acting on behalf of Compartment 2015-021-Semper of MAnaGed and ENhanced TAp (Magenta) Funding S.T.
The ratings of the Senior A Notes and Senior B Notes prior to their discontinuation and withdrawal were AA (sf) and A (sf), respectively.
All figures are in British pound sterling unless otherwise noted.
The principal methodology applicable to the rating is the “Master European Structured Finance Surveillance Methodology”.
In DBRS’s opinion, a discontinued-withdrawn rating action does not warrant the application of the entire principal methodology.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.
