TDC’s senior unsecured long-term rating on the existing EMTN bonds was lowered to “BB-” from “BBB-“ reflecting the downgrade of the Long-Term IDR.

The changes in credit rating are a result of a review and evaluation undertaken by Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch respectively and reflects primarily the new leveraged capital structure of TDC following the completion of the tender offer made by DK Telekommunikation ApS to TDC’s shareholders.
