DBRS Ratings Limited (DBRS Morningstar) discontinued its AAA (sf) rating of the Class A Notes (the Notes) issued by Bumper 11 S.A. (the Issuer).
The discontinuation reflects the full redemption of the Notes, following the exercise of the Optional Early Redemption by the Issuer at the payment date on 22 October 2019. Prior to their repayment, the outstanding principal of the Notes was EUR 540,000,000.
All figures are in euros unless otherwise noted.
The principal methodology applicable to the rating is “Master European Structured Finance Surveillance Methodology”.
In DBRS Morningstar’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.
