Structured Credit
October 29, 2018

DBRS Ratings Limited (DBRS) discontinued its ratings of the Series A and Series B Notes (the Notes) issued by Foncaixa PYMES 6, FT.

The discontinuations reflect the payment in full of the Notes on 25 October 2018. The remaining balance and the ratings of the Notes before the payment in full were as follows:

-- EUR 286,665,151.36 Series A Notes, rated A (sf)
-- EUR 201,600,000.00 Series B Notes, rated CCC (high) (sf)

Notes:
All figures are in euros unless otherwise noted.

The principal methodology applicable to the ratings is: “Rating CLOs Backed by Loans to European SMEs”.

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.
