Fitch Updates U.S. Nonprofit Institutions Rating Criteria

NEW YORK--()--Fitch Ratings has updated its sector-specific rating criteria titled 'U.S. Nonprofit Institutions Rating Criteria'. Fitch does not expect that this report, which replaces existing criteria of the same name published on May 29, 2014, will result in any rating changes.

This updated criteria report should be read in conjunction with Fitch's 'Revenue-Supported Rating Criteria' published June 16, 2014. The latter master criteria report details how Fitch assigns ratings to revenue-supported obligations and entities in the broader public finance sector.

Both criteria reports are available at 'www.fitchratings.com'.

Additional information is available at 'www.fitchratings.com'.
