-- We raised our rating on the class C notes from Schiller Park CLO Ltd., a cash flow CLO transaction, and removed it from CreditWatch positive.

NEW YORK (Standard & Poor‘s) Jan. 17, 2013--Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services today raised its rating on the class C notes from Schiller Park CLO Ltd., a collateralized loan obligation transaction managed by Deerfield Capital Management LLC, and removed it from CreditWatch with positive implications, where we placed it on Oct. 29, 2012. At the same time, we affirmed and removed the ratings on the class A-1-B, A-2, B, and D notes from CreditWatch positive. We also affirmed our ‘AAA (sf)’ rating on the class A-1-A notes from the transaction (see list).
This transaction is currently in its reinvestment phase and will begin to amortize in April 2013.
Today’s upgrade reflects the improved credit quality since our December 2011 review. The ‘CCC’ rated assets have decreased to $6.6 million, per the December 2012 trustee report, from $18.1 million in the November 2011 trustee report (which we used in our December 2011 review). The weighted-average spread also increased to 4.55% from 4.12% since our review. Due to these and other factors, the overcollateralization ratio for the class B notes has increased.
The affirmations reflect the availability of adequate credit support at the current rating levels.
We will continue to review our ratings on the notes and assess whether, in our view, the ratings remain consistent with the credit enhancement available to support them and take rating actions as we deem necessary.
