Rating Raised To #A-1# On ABCP Program FTA Santander 2 Following Upgrade Of Sponsor Stcoks—19 Apr 18

MADRID--19 Apr--S&P Global Ratings

MADRID (S&P Global Ratings) April 19, 2018--S&P Global Ratings today raised to 'A-1 (sf)' from 'A-2 (sf)' its credit rating on Fondo de Titulización de Activos Santander 2's (FTA Santander 2) asset-backed commercial paper (ABCP) program.

Today's upgrade follows the upgrade of the program's liquidity facility counterparty, Banco Santander, to 'A/Stable/A-1' (see "Reduced Funding Risks Lead To Upgrades At Several Spanish Banks," published on April 6, 2018).

Banco Santander is the sponsor and liquidity provider for FTA Santander 2's ABCP program. The liquidity support agreement conditions for funding are limited to conditions that we believe are commensurate with the rating assigned to the program, according to our "Global Methodology For Analyzing Liquidity Funding Outs And Limitations In ABCP Transactions," published on Oct. 27, 2014. Under our criteria, we directly link our rating on the ABCP program to our short-term rating on Banco Santander.

As such, under our criteria, we would reflect a change to our rating on Banco Santander in our rating on FTA Santander 2's ABCP program. We have therefore raised our rating on FTA Santander 2's ABCP program, to reflect our rating action on Banco Santander.

FTA Santander 2 is a single-seller EUR3 billion Spanish ABC
