Credit rating rationale. The issue represents senior unsecured debt of TransFin-M PJSC (hereinafter, TransFin-M, or the Company). Due to the absence of either structural or contractual subordination of the issue, ACRA regards it as pari passu with other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the Company. According to ACRA’s methodology, the recovery rate under unsecured debt belongs to Category II, therefore, the credit rating of the issue is equivalent to that of TransFin-M, i.e. BBB+(RU).

The credit rating of TransFin-M at BBB+(RU) is based on its adequate business profile and capital adequacy assessments, strong risk profile, and satisfactory liquidity and funding position. Compared to other Russia-based issuers, the Company’s creditworthiness is assessed as moderate.
