At the same time Fitch has withdrawn the expected rating of 'AA-(lka)(EXP)' assigned to NDB's proposed senior debentures.
The proposed subordinated debentures, which will have a tenor of five years and carry fixed and zero coupons, will be listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange. NDB expects to use the proceeds to strengthen its Tier 2 capital base and reduce asset and liability maturity mismatches. The final rating is subject to the receipt of final documentation conforming to information already received.
Fitch is withdrawing the expected rating assigned to NDB's proposed senior debentures as its forthcoming senior debt issuance is no longer expected to convert to final ratings.
