    • Raymond James worked closely with S&P to create a new underlying rating (BBB+, only 1 notch off the senior lien) for the bonds that had previously not had an underlying rating.
    • We structured the transaction to utilize a 5-year call option, which incurred no yield penalty due to the use of discount bonds.
