Rating Action:

MOODY'S ASSIGNS FINANCIAL STRENGTH RATINGS TO 288 U.S. BANKS

27 Jul 1995
New York, 7/27/1995 -- Moody's Investors Service assigned Bank Financial Strength Ratings (BFSRs) to 288 U.S. banks. To differentiate the new ratings from its traditional Aaa-through-C credit ratings, Moody's BFSRs use a different letter scale ranging from A ("exceptional") to E ("very weak" -- see full definitions below).
Moody's said that only three domestic banks received the highest rating of A: Morgan Guaranty Trust of New York; Trust Company Bank in Atlanta; and Wachovia Bank of North Carolina. BFSRs of U.S. banks range from a high of A to a low of D+: in addition to the three banks rated A, 17 were rated B+; 65 were rated B; 116 were rated C+; 78 were rated C; and 9 were rated D+. The average BFSR rating for the 288 banks is C+, while Moody's average deposit rating on the same banks is A1.
Moody's said that BFSRs are intended to provide investors with a measure of a bank's "intrinsic safety and soundness" on a strict legal-entity basis. Moody's emphasized that, unlike its traditional credit ratings, BFSRs are not intended to measure the true risk of credit loss -- i.e., the risk that a bank will miss payments on its deposits or other fixed-income obligations. Instead, BFSRs provide a useful comparative indicator of what an institution's creditworthiness would be on a stand-alone basis.
Moody's said that it has begun assigning BFSRs to answer the frequent requests of bank investors -- particularly interbank and counterparty credit departments -- for Moody's assessment of what a given bank's credit profile would be without reference to support mechanisms, ownership, or membership in a banking group. In many instances, banks with identical deposit ratings have different BFSRs. Moody's explained "that this can occur, for example, for multibank holding companies where similar or identical deposit ratings reflect a high likelihood of support from the parent and affiliated banks, whereas differing BFSRs more closely reflect each individual bank's financial fundamentals and underlying franchise, without regard to intercompany support mechanisms."
The rating agency noted that the attached listing of BFSRs is accompanied by traditional long- and short-term deposit ratings for each bank. The BFSRs should be viewed as a descriptive and component part of Moody's traditional deposit ratings. The analysis underlying BFSRs is conducted for all rated banks, and it is incorporated into the deposit ratings along with external considerations that can significantly affect a bank's ability to meet its obligations.
The U.S. bank rating assignments are part of a program to assign BFSRs to all the banks worldwide for which Moody's currently maintains bank deposit ratings. Like Moody's credit ratings, Bank Financial Strength Ratings will be globally comparable across countries and currencies, and they will be consistent in their meanings over time. Over the coming weeks, Moody's will assign BFSRs to the remainder of the more than 600 banks worldwide for which it currently has bank deposit ratings. The new ratings will be assigned on a country-by-country basis to banks in each of the 40 countries with rated institutions. BFSRs will be publicly available through Moody's information centers, publications, and press announcements. Rating changes will also be announced publicly.
Definitions: Moody's Bank Financial Strength Ratings
Moody's Bank Financial Strength Ratings represent Moody's opinion of a bank's intrinsic safety and soundness and, as such, exclude certain external credit risks and credit support elements that are addressed by Moody's traditional debt and deposit ratings. Unlike Moody's traditional debt ratings, Bank Financial Strength Ratings do not address the probability of timely payment. Instead, Bank Financial Strength Ratings can be understood as a measure of the likelihood that a bank will require assistance from third parties such as its owners, its industry group, or official institutions. Bank Financial Strength Ratings do not take into account the probability that the bank will receive such external support, nor do they address risks arising from sovereign actions that may interfere with a bank's ability to honor its domestic or foreign currency obligations.
Factors considered in the assignment of Bank Financial Strength Ratings include bank-specific elements such as financial fundamentals, franchise value, and business and asset diversification. Although Bank Financial Strength Ratings exclude the external factors specified above, they do take into account other risk factors in the bank's operating environment, including the strength and prospective performance of the economy, as well as the structure and relative fragility of the financial system, and the quality of banking regulation and supervision.
The definitions for Moody's Bank Financial Strength Ratings (which have been revised slightly since they were announced in November) are as follows:

A
Banks rated A possess exceptional intrinsic financial strength. Typically, they will be major institutions with highly valuable and defensible business franchises, strong financial fundamentals, and a very attractive and stable operating environment.

B
Banks rated B possess strong intrinsic financial strength. Typically, they will be important institutions with valuable and defensible business franchises, good financial fundamentals, and an attractive and stable operating environment.

C
Banks rated C possess good intrinsic financial strength. Typically, they will be institutions with valuable and defensible business franchises. These banks will demonstrate either acceptable financial fundamentals within a stable operating environment, or better than average financial fundamentals within an unstable operating environment.

D
Banks rated D possess adequate financial strength, but may be limited by one or more of the following factors: a vulnerable or developing business franchise; weak financial fundamentals; or an unstable operating environment.

E
Banks rated E possess very weak intrinsic financial strength, requiring periodic outside support or suggesting an eventual need for outside assistance. Such institutions may be limited by one or more of the following factors: a business franchise of questionable value; financial fundamentals that are seriously deficient in one or more respects; or a highly unstable operating environment.

Intermediate Categories
Where appropriate, a "+" may be appended to ratings below the "A" category to distinguish those banks that fall into intermediate categories.

To the extent permitted by law, MOODY’S and its directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, licensors and suppliers disclaim liability for any direct or compensatory losses or damages caused to any person or entity, including but not limited to by any negligence (but excluding fraud, willful misconduct or any other type of liability that, for the avoidance of doubt, by law cannot be excluded) on the part of, or any contingency within or beyond the control of, MOODY’S or any of its directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, licensors or suppliers, arising from or in connection with the information contained herein or the use of or inability to use any such information.

Moody’s Investors Service, Inc., a wholly-owned credit rating agency subsidiary of Moody’s Corporation (“MCO”), hereby discloses that most issuers of debt securities (including corporate and municipal bonds, debentures, notes and commercial paper) and preferred stock rated by Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. have, prior to assignment of any rating, agreed to pay to Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. for ratings opinions and services rendered by it fees ranging from $1,000 to approximately $2,700,000. MCO and MIS also maintain policies and procedures to address the independence of MIS’s ratings and rating processes. Information regarding certain affiliations that may exist between directors of MCO and rated entities, and between entities who hold ratings from MIS and have also publicly reported to the SEC an ownership interest in MCO of more than 5%, is posted annually at www.moodys.com under the heading “Investor Relations — Corporate Governance — Director and Shareholder Affiliation Policy.”

Additional terms for Australia only: Any publication into Australia of this document is pursuant to the Australian Financial Services License of MOODY’S affiliate, Moody’s Investors Service Pty Limited ABN 61 003 399 657AFSL 336969 and/or Moody’s Analytics Australia Pty Ltd ABN 94 105 136 972 AFSL 383569 (as applicable). This document is intended to be provided only to “wholesale clients” within the meaning of section 761G of the Corporations Act 2001. By continuing to access this document from within Australia, you represent to MOODY’S that you are, or are accessing the document as a representative of, a “wholesale client” and that neither you nor the entity you represent will directly or indirectly disseminate this document or its contents to “retail clients” within the meaning of section 761G of the Corporations Act 2001. MOODY’S credit rating is an opinion as to the creditworthiness of a debt obligation of the issuer, not on the equity securities of the issuer or any form of security that is available to retail investors.

Additional terms for Japan only: Moody's Japan K.K. (“MJKK”) is a wholly-owned credit rating agency subsidiary of Moody's Group Japan G.K., which is wholly-owned by Moody’s Overseas Holdings Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of MCO. Moody’s SF Japan K.K. (“MSFJ”) is a wholly-owned credit rating agency subsidiary of MJKK. MSFJ is not a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (“NRSRO”). Therefore, credit ratings assigned by MSFJ are Non-NRSRO Credit Ratings. Non-NRSRO Credit Ratings are assigned by an entity that is not a NRSRO and, consequently, the rated obligation will not qualify for certain types of treatment under U.S. laws. MJKK and MSFJ are credit rating agencies registered with the Japan Financial Services Agency and their registration numbers are FSA Commissioner (Ratings) No. 2 and 3 respectively.

MJKK or MSFJ (as applicable) hereby disclose that most issuers of debt securities (including corporate and municipal bonds, debentures, notes and commercial paper) and preferred stock rated by MJKK or MSFJ (as applicable) have, prior to assignment of any rating, agreed to pay to MJKK or MSFJ (as applicable) for ratings opinions and services rendered by it fees ranging from JPY125,000 to approximately JPY250,000,000.

MJKK and MSFJ also maintain policies and procedures to address Japanese regulatory requirements.
