ACRA assigns AA+(RU) to RU000A0ZYX69 bond issued by JSC «FPC»

Credit rating rationale. Bond issue is a senior unsecured debt obligation of Joint Stock Company «Federal Passenger Company» (hereinafter, the Company or FPC). Due to the absence of either structural or contractual subordination of the issue, ACRA ranks the bond pari passu with other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the Company. In accordance with the ACRA methodology, and taking into account high creditworthiness and the medium leverage of the issuer, as well as the absence of secured debt obligations, the Agency applies a simplified approach, according which the bond issues are rated AA+(RU), on par with the credit rating assigned to FPC.

The credit rating assigned to FPC is one rating notch below the financial obligations of the Russian Government, in view of a high systemic importance of the Company for the Russian economy and a very high influence of the state on the Company. ACRA notes that the level of systemic importance is not maximum achievable, which is due to a limited vulnerability of the national economy to a potential default of the Company.
