RusRating Upgrades SDM-Bank's Outlook to "Positive"

RusRating has upgraded SDM-Bank's outlook to "Positive" on 3 February 2011.

According to Larisa Makarenko, the agency’s Director of Corporate Ratings, the change in outlook reflects consistently healthy asset quality under crisis conditions, a steady recovery in earnings measures and an expected reinforcement of the shareholder base following a planned capital investment by the EBRD.

The report highlights a number of SDM-Bank’s performance ratios: "Financial results for 2010 totaled R319mn, an increase of 88% over the previous year. The Bank’s return on assets was 1.6% and its return on equity 16.9%, versus 1.0% and 9.7% in 2009".

The rating itself is unchanged at “BB” and it is based on strong risk management, solid market positions in the Bank’s core line of business, a healthy liquidity position, and access to federal government support in the form of credit resources.
