Abstract
LONDON (Standard & Poor's) Aug. 5, 2010--Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said today that it assigned its 'B-' debt rating to the proposed €640 million subordinated notes (proposed notes) to be issued by UPC Holding B.V., the holding company of The Netherlands-based international cable-TV operator and broadband services provider UPC Broadband Holding B.V. (UPC; B+/Positive/--). At the same time, we assigned a recovery rating of '6' to the proposed notes, indicating our expectation of negligible (0%-10%) recovery for creditors in the event of a payment default. We anticipate that the proposed notes will rank pari passu with the existing subordinated bonds at the UPC Holding level. The issue rating on the proposed notes is two notches below our corporate credit...
