12 Jul 2018

Mexico, July 12, 2018 -- Moody's de Mexico (Moody's) upgraded today the issuer ratings of the State of Jalisco to Ba1/ (Global Scale, local currency/Mexico National Scale) from Ba2/ The outlook remains stable.

At the same time, Moody's upgraded to A3/ from Baa1/ the debt ratings of the following four enhanced loans:

- MXN 490 million (original face value) enhanced loan from Banamex

- MXN 1,444 million (original face value) enhanced loan from Banobras

- MXN 249 million (original face value) enhanced loan from Banorte

- MXN 154 million (original face value) enhanced loan from Banorte

Additionally, Moody's also upgraded to Baa1/ from Baa2/ debt ratings of the following seven enhanced loans:

- MXN 389 million (original face value) enhanced loan from Banobras

- MXN 632 million (original face value) enhanced loan from Banorte

- MXN 665 million (original face value) enhanced loan from Interacciones

- MXN 409 million (original face value) enhanced loan from Santander

- MXN 100 million (original face value) enhanced loan from Scotiabank

- MXN 374.7 million (original face value) enhanced loan from Banorte

- MXN 957 million (original face value) enhanced loan from Banorte



The upgrade of the State of Jalisco's issuer ratings reflects a sustained improvement in its credit profile in recent years, supported by its balanced financial results, moderate debt levels and improved liquidity position. Net direct and indirect debt decreased to 17.4% of total revenues in 2017 from 20.5% in 2013, while liquidity measured by cash to current liabilities rose to 0.8x from 0.3x in 2015. At this level, Jalisco's liquidity now exceeds the median of its Ba-rated peers. Going forward, we expect the State of Jalisco's strong financial performance to continue, supported by further growth in own-source revenues, which will allow it to maintain an adequate liquidity position.

The upgrade also reflects the state's strong governance and management practices. In 2013, Jalisco implemented reforms to the state's debt law to require that all short-term debt be secured with a specific revenue pledge to ensure its repayment. Moreover, own source revenues have continuously increased at a compound annual growth rate of 11% during the 2013-2017 period as a result of improving tax collections and the creation of new taxes.


The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Jalisco will face only modest cash financing needs in the short to medium term, and that it will maintain moderate debt levels and a strong liquidity position.


The upgrade of debt ratings of the 11 enhanced loans follows the upgrade of the State of Jalisco's issuer rating. The enhanced loan ratings are directly linked to the credit quality of the issuer, which ensures that underlying contract enforcement risks, as well as economic and governance risks (for which the issuer rating serves as a proxy) are embedded in the enhanced loan ratings.


Given the stable outlook, it is unlikely that the issuer rating will change in the medium term. However, if the state maintains balanced sustainable financial results while continuing to improve its liquidity metrics, the ratings could face upward pressure. Conversely, a deterioration in the state's financial performance leading to higher than expected debt levels or a sharp decrease of liquidity metrics could exert downward pressure on the issuer ratings.

For the enhanced loans rated at Mexico's country ceiling of A3, an upgrade of the Global Scale rating would only be possible if the sovereign rating is upgraded and if the State of Jalisco's issuer rating and the credit enhancements of the loans are strengthened. Given the link between the loan and the credit quality of the obligor, a downgrade of the State of Jalisco could exert downward pressure on the loan's ratings. The ratings could also face downward pressure if debt service coverage levels fall materially below our expectations.

For the enhanced loans rated as Baa1, an upgrade of the State of Jalisco's issuer ratings would likely result in an upgrade of the enhanced loan ratings. Conversely, a downgrade of the state of Jalisco's issuer ratings or a fall in debt service coverage materially below our expectations would likely result in a downgrade on the enhanced loan ratings.

The principal methodology used in the issuer ratings was Regional and Local Governments published in January 2018. The principal methodology used in the enhanced loan ratings was Rating Methodology for Enhanced Municipal and State Loans in Mexico published in July 2017. Please see the Rating Methodologies page on for a copy of these methodologies.

The period of time covered in the financial information used to determine State of Jalisco's rating is between 01 January 2013 and 31 December 2017. (source: financial statements of State of Jalisco)

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 ".za" for South Africa. For further information on Moody's approach to national scale credit ratings, please refer to Moody's Credit rating Methodology published in May 2016 entitled "Mapping National Scale Ratings from Global Scale Ratings". While NSRs have no inherent absolute meaning in terms of default risk or expected loss, a historical probability of default consistent with a given NSR can be inferred from the GSR to which it maps back at that particular point in time. For information on the historical default rates associated with different global scale rating categories over different investment horizons, please see
