Fitch Rates Sampath Bank’s Basel III Sub Debt Final ‘A(lka)’

Fitch Ratings has assigned Sampath Bank PLC’s (A+(lka)/Stable) proposed Basel III-compliant subordinated debentures a National Long-Term Rating of ‘A(lka)’.

The notes, which will total Rs 7 billion and mature in five years, include a non-viability clause and will qualify as regulatory Tier II capital for the bank. The bank plans to use the proceeds to strengthen its Tier II capital base and support its loan-book expansion. The debentures are to be listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange.
