ACRA assigns AA(RU) to RU000A0ZYYE3 bond issued by PJSC Rostelecom

Credit rating rationale. The issue represents senior unsecured debt of PJSC Rostelecom (hereinafter – the Company, or Rostelecom). Due to the absence of either structural or contractual subordination of the issues, ACRA regards them as equal to other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the Company in terms of priority. According to the ACRA methodology, the credit rating of the bond is equivalent to that of PJSC Rostelecom, i.e. AA(RU).

The credit rating of PJSC Rostelecom is based on very strong business profile of the Company, its very large scope and leading market positions, as well as very high liquidity level and moderate support from the state. At the same time, medium leverage, the fact that some of the Rostelecom’s infrastructure sections belong to different generations of telecommunications technology, and Company’s substantial presence in segments with declining revenues limit the level of Company’s rating assessment.
