The CreditWatch placement follows the announcement that Datapipe has enteredinto a definitive agreement to be acquired by Rackspace Hosting Inc., which israted two notches higher at 'BB-'. While terms of financing have yet to bedisclosed and we need to assess the degree of execution risk as well aspotential synergies, we believe any downgrade of Rackspace would be limited toone notch.
