Hi Michel,

Corporate bond ratings focus on the firm's assets, income, and ability to repay the bond interest over time and the principle at maturity. Special issue bonds also take into account the purpose of the funds and the likelihood of success. Of course the rating must also account for the firm's history of repaying it's debts. The bond rating will be effected by the firm's credit rating, but the two are not directly related.
