ACRA assigns eA+(RU) to Eurobonds issued by PJSC Sovcombank (LPN, actual issuer: SovCom Capital D.A.C.)

Expected credit rating rationale. SovCom Capital D.A.C., an Irish SPV, plans to place an LPN issue in January 2021 and provide proceeds from the issue in full as a loan to PJSC Sovcombank (hereinafter, the Bank). The issue represents senior unsecured debt of the Bank. Due to the absence of either structural or contractual subordination of the issue, ACRA regards it as pari passu with other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the Bank. According to ACRA’s methodology, the credit rating of the issue is equivalent to that of the Bank, i.e. A+(RU).

The credit rating is based on the Bank’s adequate business profile, risk profile, and liquidity and funding, as well as its strong capital position. The credit rating is supported by the Bank’s systemic importance for the Russian banking system.
