Fitch Rates Siyapatha Finance’s subordinated debt ‘A-’ Empty Fitch Rates Siyapatha Finance’s subordinated debt ‘A-’

on Thu Nov 27, 2014 7:48 am
Fitch Ratings Lanka has assigned Siyapatha Finance Ltd.’s (SLFL; A(lka)/Stable) proposed subordinated redeemable debentures of up to Rs. 1 b a final National Long-Term Rating of ‘A-(lka)’.

The assignment of the final rating follows the receipt of final documents that conform to information previously received. The final rating is at the same level as the expected rating assigned on 2 October 2014.

The proposed debentures will have a five-year tenor with bullet principal repayment at maturity. Coupon payments will be made annually at 8.90%. The debentures are to be listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange. SLFL expects to use the proceeds to strengthen its regulatory Tier 2 capital and to reduce maturity mismatches between assets and liabilities.

Key rating drivers
The proposed debentures are rated one notched below SLFL’s National Long-Term Rating to reflect their subordination to senior unsecured creditors.

SLFL’s rating reflects support from its parent, Sampath Bank PLC (AA-(lka)/Stable). SLFL is rated two notches below its parent because Fitch classifies SLFL as strategically important to Sampath Bank. This view is premised on Sampath Bank’s 100% ownership of SLFL, involvement in the strategic direction of SLFL through Board representation, and the potential reputational repercussions on Sampath Bank should it allow SLFL to fail.

Rating sensitivities
Any changes to SLFL’s National Long-Term Rating would impact the issue’s National Long-Term Rating. SLFL’s rating could change if Sampath Bank’s rating changes or if SLFL’s strategic importance to Sampath Bank changes.
