Abstract:

NEW YORK (Standard&Poor's) Dec. 4, 2008--Standard&Poor's Ratings Services said today that it lowered its corporate credit rating on Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Palm Inc. to 'CCC+' from 'B-'. The outlook is negative. At the same time, We lowered our issue-level ratings on the company's secured term loan and revolving credit facility to 'CCC' from 'B-'. The recovery rating on the debt is revised to '5' from '4', indicating the expectation for modest (10% to 30%) recovery in the event of a payment default. "The actions reflects Palm's announcement that sales in the November 2008 quarter will decline to about half of the August quarter's level, reflecting challenging economic conditions and market share losses," said Standard&Poor's credit
