(The following statement was released by the rating agency)
Oct 01 - Standard & Poor's Ratings Services today published its monthly European ABCP surveillance snapshot for June 2012, containing portfolio data on all the European conduits that it rates (see "Related Criteria And Research").
The June 2012 report provides information on levels of CP outstanding, programwide credit enhancement, supporting counterparties, and our key rating and collateral considerations for all of the European-based conduits that we rate.
We are establishing greater minimum portfolio disclosure standards for all asset-backed commercial paper (ABCP) conduits that we rate. We publish this snapshot monthly to update the market with data that the conduit administrators provide to us as part of our surveillance process.
