Immediate Report – Midroog places Bezeq's debentures on credit review with negative implications
Midroog, the Israeli rating agency, announced today that it placed Bezeq's debentures on credit review with negative implications following an announcement by the Ministry of Communications regarding the regulation of Bezeq's fixed-line telephony tariffs.
As part of the rating review process, Midroog will examine the implications of the tariff decrease, in various scenarios, on the Company's results given its business plan for the coming years and offsetting actions that the Company may take. Midroog estimates that the review may lead to a downgrade in the rating or in the outlook only, depending on the intensity of the tariff reduction and its assessment of its effect on Bezeq's business profile, revenues, cash flow coverage ratios and financial flexibility.
