Credit rating rationale. The bond represents senior unsecured debt of “Element Leasing” LLC (hereinafter, Element Leasing, or the Company). Due to the absence of either structural or contractual subordination of the bond, ACRA ranks the bond pari passu with other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the Company. According to the ACRA methodology, the reimbursement rate for unsecured debt corresponds to category II; hence, the bond issue is assigned the credit rating BBB+(RU), on par with the credit rating assigned to Element Leasing.

The credit rating of Element Leasing is based on 'adequate' assessments of business profile and capital adequacy, 'strong' risk profile and 'satisfactory' assessment of funding and liquidity. The Company's creditworthiness is 'moderately high' as compared to Russian peers.
