NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fitch Ratings assigns the following ratings to the puttable floating rate receipts (floater receipts) and inverse floating rate receipts (residual receipts) of the Tender Option Bond Trust series listed below:
--Floater receipts, series 2016-XF0491 'AA/F1', Stable Outlook;
--Residual receipts, series 2016 XF0491 'AA', Stable Outlook.
KEY RATING DRIVERS
The long-term 'AA', Stable Outlook ratings assigned to the series 2016-XF0491 floater and residual receipts are based on the rating that Fitch has assigned to Indiana Finance Authority health system revenue bonds, series 2009A (Sisters of St. Francis Health Services, Inc. Obligated Group) (rated 'AA', Stable Outlook) that have been deposited in the series 2016-XF0491 trust.
The short-term 'F1' rating assigned to the series 2016-XF0491 floater receipts is based on the liquidity facility provided by Bank of America, N.A. (rated 'A+/F1', Stable Outlook), which has a stated expiration date of June 15, 2017, unless such date is extended or earlier terminated.
The short-term rating assigned to the floater receipts will be adjusted upward or downward in conjunction with the short-term rating of the bank, and, in some cases, the long-term rating of the underlying bonds deposited in the trust. The long-term rating assigned to the floater receipts and residual receipts is exclusively tied to the creditworthiness of the underlying bonds deposited in the trust and will reflect all changes to such rating.
