Moscow, November 22, 2010 -- Moody's Investors Service has today revised the outlook to stable
from negative on Home Credit and Finance Bank's (HCFB) Ba3 long-term
local and foreign currency deposit and debt ratings, and the D-
Bank Financial Strength Rating (BFSR). The banks' NP short-term
local and foreign currency deposit ratings, and its Aa3.ru
national scale rating remain unchanged.
Moody's has also assigned a long-term rating of Ba3 to HCFB's
senior unsecured local currency debt instruments (four domestic bonds:
RUB3 billion due 2011, RUB4 billion due 2013, RUB5 billion
due 2014, RUB5 billion due 2015); the rating carries a stable
outlook. Any subsequent senior local currency debt issuance by
HCFB will be rated at the same rating level subject to there being no
material change in the bank's overall credit rating.
The Ba3 rating was assigned to the following debt instruments:
Ru.Ruble 3000 M Senior Unsecured Regular Bond Due 2011
Ru.Ruble 4000 M Senior Unsecured Regular Bond Due 2013
Ru.Ruble 5000 M Senior Unsecured Regular Bond Due 2014
Ru.Ruble 5000 M Senior Unsecured Regular Bond Due 2015
Moody's assessment is primarily based on HCFB's audited financial
statements for 2009 prepared under IFRS. At the same time,
we caution that our assessment, in part, incorporates information
from HCFB's non-audited interim consolidated statements under
IFRS for H1 2010.
The outlook change is driven by the stabilization and/or improvements
in the bank's financial fundamentals. HCFB's franchise value
is stable, despite the fact that its main competitors have materially
scaled down their operations in 2008-2009. This allowed
HCFB to rank as the number one player in Russian point-of-sale
(POS) business, with a market share of around 29% (according
to HCFB). In terms of asset quality, loans overdue by more
than 90 days decreased to below 10% of gross loans at H1 2010,
compared to 12-13% in 2007-2008. Adding loans
written off to loans overdue by more than 90 days also signals an improvement
in asset quality: 16% at H1 2010, compared to 20%
The bank's Tier 1 capital ratio improved to a strong 36% at H1
2010 (YE2009: 36.4%, YE2008: 19.6%),
supported by retained earnings. This very high capitalization level
(fully composed of Tier 1 capital) is likely to lead to dividend payments
to PPF in future. Still, we expect that the bank will remain
highly capitalized in the medium term, even taking into account
an acceleration in lending growth in 2011.
HCFB's profitability is very high, with an RoAA of 11.3%
for H1 2010 (annualized), and 5.1% for full-year
2009. The bank channeled 17% of its pre-provision
income into loan loss reserves in H1 2010, compared to around 60%
for full years 2009 and 2008. HCFB's earnings structure is
very granular, dominated by net interest income (around 80%)
and fees (around 20%).
HCFB's liquidity profile was adequate at H1 2010, with a cash
cushion of 23% of assets and access to funding from parent PPF
group (through a RUB21.5 billion committed line, fully unutilized).
The current cash and money market assets cover HCFB's debt repayments
till mid-2011. The bank has been successful is raising new
debt on the market since early 2009, particularly through domestic
bonds (two deals for a total of RUB10 billion). The funding structure
has also become more granular due to the increase in retail deposits to
26% of liabilities at H1 2010 from around 10% in 2008.
To some extent, the liquidity risk is mitigated by the relatively
short-term nature of HCFB's loan book, which amortises
by RUB5-6 billion every month. In case of need, HCFB
can scale down new lending and strengthen its liquidity profile relatively
Negative rating drivers for HCFB include the bank's high exposure to credit
risk in consumer lending, and exposure to refinancing risk as it
is wholesale funded.
The assigned Ba3 long-term global local currency debt rating is
in line with the bank's global local currency deposit rating,
which is in turn based on the bank's D- bank financial strength
rating (mapping to a baseline credit assessment (BCA) of Ba3) and does
not incorporate any probability of systemic or parental support.
The principal methodologies used in this rating were Bank Financial Strength
Ratings: Global Methodology published in February 2007, and
Incorporation of Joint-Default Analysis into Moody's Bank Ratings:
A Refined Methodology published in March 2007.
Moody's Interfax Rating Agency's National Scale Ratings (NSRs) are
intended as relative measures of creditworthiness among debt issues and
issuers within a country, enabling market participants to better
differentiate relative risks. NSRs differ from Moody's global scale
ratings in that they are not globally comparable with the full universe
of Moody's rated entities, but only with NSRs for other rated debt
issues and issuers within the same country. NSRs are designated
by a ".nn" country modifier signifying the relevant
country, as in ".ru" for Russia. For further
information on Moody's approach to national scale ratings, please
refer to Moody's Rating Implementation Guidance published in August 2010
entitled "Mapping Moody's National Scale Ratings to Global Scale
