S&P expects to assign an ‘A-1+’ rating to $351 million of class A-1 money market notes and a 'AAA' rating to $867 million of class A notes offered over three tranches.

The class A-1 notes are due March 2016, the A2 notes are due July 2017, the A3 notes are due February 2019 and the A4 notes are due June 2020.

The deal is structured with a $31.3 million subordinate tranche that has been assigned a preliminary rating of ‘AA+’.
