ACRA assigns A+(RU) to RU000A100Z91 bond issued by PJSC “STLC”

Credit rating rationale. The issue represents senior unsecured debt of PJSC “STLC” (hereinafter, STLC, or the Company). Due to the absence of either structural or contractual subordination of the issue, ACRA regards it as equal to other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the Company in terms of priority. According to the ACRA methodology, the unsecured debt repayment level corresponds to second category; therefore, the credit rating of the issue is equivalent to that of STLC, i.e. A+(RU).

The credit rating of STLC is based on a high likelihood of extraordinary support by state authorities. The standalone creditworthiness assessment (SCA) of the Company is satisfactory. Compared to other RF-based issuers, the Company’s creditworthiness is assessed as high.
