Portugese Telecom Operator NOS’ Senior Unsecured Notes Assigned ‘BBB-‘ Rating

          PARIS (S&P Global Ratings) April 24, 2018--S&P Global Ratings today assigned its 'BBB-' issue rating to the EUR300 million senior unsecured notes issued by Portuguese telecommunications operator NOS, SGPS, S.A. (BBB-/Stable/--). We expect that NOS will use all the proceeds to repurchase and repay outstanding debt. 
          The rating on the notes is at the same level as our long-term issuer credit rating on NOS, reflecting the absence of significant subordination risk, further supported by NOS' low leverage. For the rationale behind our rating on NOS, see "Portuguese Telecom Operator NOS Assigned 'BBB-' Rating; Outlook Stable," published March 14, 2018, on RatingsDirect.
