Moody's Investors Service announced today that the substitution of cash currently held in a debt service reserve fund with a A2 rated surety bond from Assured Guaranty would not, in and of itself and as of this point in time, result in a reduction, placement on review for possible downgrade or withdrawal of Moody's current rating of the City of Omaha, NE Sanitary Sewerage System's Sanitary Sewerage System Revenue Refunding Bonds, Tax-Exempt Series of 2020A; Sanitary Sewerage System Revenue Refunding Bonds, Taxable Series of 2020B; Sanitary Sewerage System Revenue Refunding Bonds, Series 2019; Sanitary Sewerage System Revenue Refunding Bonds Series of 2016; and Sanitary Sewerage System Revenue Bonds Series of 2014. The principal methodology used in reaching this conclusion and in monitoring the ratings of the Sanitary Sewerage System Revenue Bonds, Series 2020A, 2020B, 2019, 2016, 2014 issued by the Issuer is US Municipal Utility Revenue Debt, published on October 19, 2017.
Moody's Investors Service (Moody's) has today downgraded to Baa3 from Baa1 the underlying senior secured rating of the GBP352 million index-linked guaranteed secured bonds due 2042 (the Bonds) issued by Central Nottinghamshire Hospitals plc (the Issuer, ProjectCo or CNH). In Moody's view these delays, coupled with the lack of consistent improvements in the project's operating performance, could result in increasingly strained relationships and a heightened risk that the Trust could take further actions under the PA and even potentially consider, in an extreme scenario, seeking to terminate the PA.
