Rating Action:

Moody's repositions Argentine Companies on the revised national scale

 The document has been translated in other languages

06 Jun 2014

Buenos Aires City, June 06, 2014 -- Moody's Latin America Agente de Calificación de Riesgo positioned the national scale ratings of several rated Argentine issuers on the revised national scale that Moody's applies to Argentine issuers. The national scale rating outlooks for all issuers remain stable.

The recalibrated national scale ratings follow the adoption of a revised correspondence between Moody's' global scale ratings and national scale ratings for Argentina, as outlined in "Mapping Moody's National Scale Ratings to Global Scale Ratings" http://www.moodys.com/viewresearchdoc.aspx?docid=PBC_171508. The new map allows for greater credit differentiation among domestic issuers.

The recalibrated national scale ratings do not signify a change in credit quality, since the global scale ratings (GSRs) for these issuers are unchanged. Rather, the new map associates higher NSRs for the same global scale rating than did the previous map. In releasing these NSRs, the credit rating agency reiterated its view that all the issuers and securities Moody's rates in Argentina have elevated default risk, as indicated by their deeply speculative grade global scale ratings. As noted by Gersan Zurita, Moody's Group Credit Officer for Latin America, "the NSRs do not suggest that these issuers and their securities credit risks are in any way less risky than indicated by their GSRs; rather the NSRs simply make additional rating categories available for use by Moody's to provide greater rating distinctions and more finely differentiate credit risk than is possible on the global rating scale."

Where multiple national scale ratings are mapped to a single global scale rating, rating committees assigned higher or lower national scale ratings to individual issuers and debts depending on their relative credit position within the same global scale rating category, based on the sector's rating methodology.

Moody's National Scale Credit 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 credit 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 ".mx" for Mexico. For further information on Moody's approach to national scale credit ratings, please refer to Moody's Credit rating Methodology published in June 2014 entitled "Mapping Moody's National Scale Ratings to Global Scale Credit Ratings".

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.

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.
