Sri Lanka's Fitch places People's Merchant Finance on negative watch; withdraws rating
12 May, 2015 16:20:05
May 12, 2015 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's Fitch Ratings has placed People's Merchant Finance, national long term rating of 'BB+(lka)' on rating watch negative and simultaneously withdrawn the rating.
Fitch is withdrawing the rating as the People's Merchant Finance (PMF) has chosen to stop participating in the rating process, issuing a statement Fitch Ratings said.

"Fitch will no longer have sufficient information to maintain the rating. Accordingly, Fitch will no longer provide ratings or analytical coverage for PMF."

The rating watch negative reflects Fitch's assessment of potential weakening of the linkages between PMF and its main shareholder, state-owned People's Bank (AA+(lka)/Stable) and a potential decline in PMF's intrinsic financial strength due to a lack of clarity on its future operations, Fitch Ratings said.
