Aug 27 - Standard & Poor's Ratings Services today lowered its rating on the class A notes from Eaton Vance CDO II Ltd. to 'D (sf)' from 'CC (sf)'. Eaton Vance CDO II Ltd. is a collateralized bond obligation (CBO) transaction.
According to the July 16, 2012, payment date report (July 16 was also the
final payment date for the transaction), the available proceeds were
insufficient to pay the class A noteholders in full. Therefore, we lowered our
rating on the class A notes to 'D (sf)' in accordance with our criteria.
