Rating Action:

Moody's upgrades Permanent tsb's deposit and senior unsecured ratings; outlook stable

08 May 2015

London, 08 May 2015 -- Moody's Investors Service has today upgraded the deposit and senior unsecured ratings of Permanent tsb p.l.c. (PTSB) to B1 from B3 and to B2 from Caa1, respectively. Moody's also upgraded PTSB's senior unsecured MTN programme to (P)B2 from (P)Caa1. The action is driven by the upgrade of PTSB's standalone baseline credit assessment (BCA) to caa1 from caa3 following the EUR400 million capital increase and the issue of EUR125 million of additional tier 1 (AT1) instruments. Moody's has also assigned a Counterparty Risk Assessment (CR Assessment) of Ba3(cr)/Not Prime (cr) to PTSB.

The rating action is also driven by the implementation of Moody's new bank rating methodology and specifically the advanced Loss Given Failure (LGF) analysis, which offset the rating agency's reduced assessment of the probability of government support for PTSB's deposits.

This rating action concludes the review on the deposit, senior debt and junior debt ratings initiated on 30 October 2014 and extended on 12 February 2015, and it concludes the review on PTSB's BCA and adjusted BCA initiated on 17 March 2015 and extended on 26 March 2015. The outlook on the long-term deposits and senior unsecured debt ratings is now stable.

RATINGS RATIONALE

RATIONALE FOR THE BCA

The upward movement on PTSB's standalone BCA was driven by the successful completion of the EUR400 million capital increase and the issue of EUR125 million of AT1 with a coupon of 8.625%. These placements combined with at least EUR330 million in capital benefit generated by management actions such as asset sales, improved financial performance and technical adjustments will help the bank to address the EUR855 million capital shortfall that resulted from the adverse stress scenario of the European Central Bank's (ECB) comprehensive assessment. The capital increase leads to a pro forma CRD IV fully loaded Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio of 14.3%, up from 12.4% as of December 2014.

While PTSB has signed agreements to sell approximately EUR5 billion of its portfolio under its restructuring plan, planned disposals of further "non-core" assets are subject to market conditions and therefore expose PTSB's capitalisation to risk.

Moody's also notes that PTSB's caa1 standalone BCA continues to reflect (1) the high level of problem loans, which accounted for 24.2% of gross loans as of December 2014; (2) low profitability, albeit improving from very low levels and; (3) the bank's significant use of wholesale funding, which will decline following the completion of the non-core asset sales.

RATIONALE FOR THE DEPOSIT AND SENIOR UNSECURED RATING

The upgrade of PTSB's deposit and senior unsecured debt ratings is driven by the upward change in the BCA, the introduction of the rating agency's Loss Given Failure (LGF) analysis, and revised government support assumptions.

PTSB is subject to the EU Bank Resolution and Recovery Directive (BRRD), which Moody's considers to be an Operational Resolution Regime. Moody's assumes residual tangible common equity of 3% and losses post-failure of 8% of tangible banking assets, a 25% run-off in "junior" wholesale deposits, a 5% run-off in preferred deposits, and assigns a 25% probability to deposits being preferred to senior unsecured debt. Moody's also assumes that the junior proportion of PTSB's deposits is in line with its estimated EU-wide average of 26%. These are in line with Moody's standard assumptions. The LGF analysis is based on the data reported as of year-end 2014 but also incorporate the sizable maturities of government guaranteed debt which occurred during the first quarter of 2015, as well as the agreed asset sales of UK mortgage loans and Irish real estate loans.

Moody's advanced LGF analysis indicates that PTSB's deposits are likely to face very low loss-given-failure, due to the loss-absorption provided by subordinated debt and, potentially, by senior unsecured debt -- if deposits are treated preferentially in a resolution -- as well as the substantial volume of deposits themselves. This results in a Preliminary Rating Assessment for PTSB's deposits of b2, two notches above the caa1 BCA.

In addition, the advanced LGF analysis indicates that PTSB's senior unsecured debt is likely to face low loss-given-failure, and under a Preliminary Rating Assessment for PTSB's deposit and senior debt the result is b3, one notch above the caa1 BCA.

At the same time, Moody's said that the introduction of the BRRD has demonstrated a reduction in the willingness and ability of EU governments to bail out banks, resulting in a reduced expectation of government support. Moody's expects a moderate probability of support for PTSB, which leads to one notch of uplift from the Preliminary Rating Assessments for deposits and senior unsecured ratings to B1 and B2 respectively.

RATIONALE FOR JUNIOR INSTRUMENTS

Following the upward movement on the standalone BCA, Moody's has also upgraded PTSB's subordinated debt programme rating to (P)Caa2 from (P)Ca and junior subordinated programme rating to (P)Caa3 from (P)C. The instruments are one and two notches below the bank's BCA, respectively, reflecting their high expected loss severity in the event of the bank's failure and the additional coupon risk on the junior subordinated debt.

RATIONALE FOR STABLE OUTLOOK

The stable outlook on PTSB's long-term deposit rating and senior unsecured rating incorporates Moody's expectation of some decline in capital due to potential losses on asset sales. The outlook also incorporates improvements in profitability excluding the losses trigger by the above-mentioned asset sales and ongoing asset quality challenges.

RATIONALE FOR THE CR ASSESSMENT

As part of today's actions, Moody's has assigned a CR Assessment to PTSB of Ba3(cr)/Not Prime(cr). The CR Assessment, which is not a rating, reflects an issuer's probability of defaulting on certain bank operating liabilities, such as covered bonds, derivatives, letters of credit and other contractual commitments. In assigning the CR Assessment, Moody's evaluates the issuer's standalone strength and the likelihood, should the need arise, of affiliate and government support, as well as the anticipated seniority of counterparty obligations under Moody's Loss Given Failure framework. The CR Assessment also assumes that authorities will likely take steps to preserve the continuity of a bank's key operations, maintain payment flows, and avoid contagion should the bank enter a resolution.

WHAT COULD CHANGE THE RATING -- UP/DOWN

An upgrade of PTSB's BCA would likely be driven by (1) a sustainable recovery of asset-quality indicators; (2) significant improvements in profitability; and (3) conclusion of the asset sales and deleveraging process without triggering a material deterioration of capital metrics. A positive movement in PTSB's BCA would likely result in upgrades to all ratings. PTSB's deposit and senior unsecured ratings could also face positive pressure if the bank issued a significant amount of subordinated debt, further shielding these more senior instruments from loss in the event of the bank's failure.

The bank's BCA could be adversely affected by (1) a greater-than-expected deterioration in the bank's existing capital buffers; (2) an unexpected deterioration in the bank's profitability metrics; and (3) a material deterioration in its liquidity or funding position. A downward movement in PTSB's BCA would likely result in downgrades to all PTSB's ratings. A reduction in the moderate probability of support currently assign to systemically important banks in Ireland could lead to negative pressure on PTSB's deposit and senior unsecured ratings.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Banks published in March 2015. Please see the Credit Policy page on www.moodys.com for a copy of this methodology.
