S&P downgrades rating of Guangzhou Industrial Investment Fund Management

S&P Global Ratings downgraded the long-term issuer credit rating of Guangzhou Industrial Investment Fund Management Co. Ltd. to BBB from BBB+, with a stable outlook.

The rating agency said Dec. 17 that it also affirmed the company's A-2 short-term issuer credit rating.

The rating downgrade reflects the belief that the company's linkage with the Guangzhou municipal government has weakened. Ratings believes the company's lower-tier government ownership structure decreases the likelihood of extraordinary government support.

Meanwhile, the stable outlook reflects the agency's view that Guangzhou Industrial Investment Fund Management will remain a government-related entity with a very high likelihood of support from the Guangzhou government.

The rating agency also expects the company to maintain intermediate leverage over the next 12 to 24 months.
