OREANDA-NEWS. S&P Global Ratings said today that it withdrew its 'CCC' issuer credit rating on Boca Raton, Fla.-based American Media Inc. At the time of the withdrawal, the rating outlook was negative.

At the same time, we withdrew our 'CCC' issue-level rating on the company's 11.5% first-lien notes due 2017.

"We withdrew our corporate credit rating on American Media at the company's request and due to lack of sufficient information on its future capital structure and financial reporting," said S&P Global Ratings' credit analyst Scott Zari. "We withdrew our issue-level ratings on the first-lien notes because they have been redeemed."
