FitchRatings affirms AccessBank’s IDR credit rating at BB+ and downgrades the viability rating

Baku, February 01, 2017. FitchRatings has affirmed AccessBank’s credit rating at BB+ which is at the level of the Azerbaijani sovereign and the Bank continues being the financial institution with the highest creditworthiness of the country. At the same time, the rating agency downgraded the Bank’s viability rating from “b+” to “f” in the light of a substantial lift in provisioning thereby exerting pressure on the Bank’s capital. In order to strengthen the capital basis, AccessBank’s shareholders already approved a capital increase in the amount of USD 20m (AZN equivalent) in December 2016 which is going to be implemented in Q1 2017.

AccessBank’s CEO Michael Hoffmann commented on the rating action: “We welcome the confirmation of the IDR rating at the sovereign level of BB+ which reflects the Bank’s sound position and high stability. We continue to actively support our clients to jointly tackle the current challenges and to prudently provide loans in local currency to our clients in all segments. The Bank’s strong shareholders and their firm backing is one of our important assets in this challenging environment”.
