DBRS Ratings Limited (DBRS Morningstar) discontinued its ratings of the Commercial Mortgage-Backed Floating-Rate Notes Due November 2027 issued by Taurus 2017-2 UK D Designated Activity Company AC as they were repaid in full, as of the August 2019 remittance. This concludes DBRS Morningstar’s surveillance of this transaction.

A review of the transaction legal documents was not conducted as the legal documents have remained unchanged since the most recent rating action.
