Standard & Poors, May 2011
U.K.-based automaker Jaguar Land Rover PLC (JLR) plans to refinance existing debt and repay preference shares by issuing -1 billion-equivalent of senior unsecured notes. Based on our criteria, we assess JLR's financial risk profile as "aggressive" and its business risk profile as "weak." We are assigning our preliminary 'B+' corporate credit rating to JLR, factoring in some support from 100% owner Tata Motors. We are also assigning a preliminary 'B+' issue rating and '4' recovery rating to JLR's planned -1 billion-equivalent senior unsecured notes. The stable outlook reflects our opinion that the company is likely to maintain credit measures in line with the rating over the cycle.
