Fitch Rates Hatton National Bank’s Basel III Subordinated Debt ‘BBB+(EXP)(lka)’

Fitch Ratings has assigned Hatton National Bank PLC's (HNB, A(lka)/Stable) proposed Sri Lankan rupee-denominated Basel III-compliant subordinated debentures of up to LKR12 billion an expected National Long-Term Rating of 'BBB+(EXP)(lka)'.

The proposed debentures, which will have maturities of five, seven and 10 years, will be listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange. The bank plans to use the proceeds to further strengthen its Tier 2 capital base, support loan growth and reduce maturity mismatches in the balance sheet.

It expects the proposed debentures to qualify as Basel III-compliant regulatory Tier 2 capital. The debentures include a non-viability clause whereby they will convert to ordinary voting shares subject to the occurrence of a trigger event, as determined by the Monetary Board of Sri Lanka.
