Credit rating withdrawal rationale
The withdrawal of the credit rating assigned to RU000A0JTBA3 bond issued by the Krasnodar Krai is caused by full redemption of this bond issue on November 9, 2017 as planned. Previously, according to the ACRA methodology, the credit rating equivalent to that of the Krasnodar Krai has been assigned to this issue, i.e. A(RU). The credit rating is withdrawn without its concurrent affirmation.
The credit rating has been previously assigned to RU000A0JTBA3 bond issued by the Krasnodar Krai under the national scale for the Russian Federation based on the Methodology for Assigning Credit Ratings to Individual Issues of Financial Instruments Under the National Scale of the Russian Federation, and the Key Concepts Used by the Analytical Credit Rating Agency within the Scope of Its Rating Activities.
