We assigned our preliminary 'B' rating to the Brooklyn Arena Holding Company LLC's (BAHC) senior secured notes of an amount up to $146.8 million that mature in 2017. Proceeds of the notes will be used to support the construction of a new multi-purpose arena in Brooklyn, N.Y., known as the Barclays Center, where the New Jersey Nets will be relocated. The rating on BAHC's debt reflects its reliance on residual distributions from its wholly owned subsidiary Brooklyn Events Center, LLC (BEC) and we base the rating on the consolidation of the debt of the two entities.
