NEW YORK (S&P Global Ratings) Aug. 16, 2019--S&P Global Ratings today lowered its issuer credit rating on Nomura Derivative Products Inc. (NDPI) to AA-t/Stable/A-1+t from AAt/Negative/A-1+t. The 't' subscript indicates that the rating is on a termination structure.
NDPI is a U.S.-based termination derivative product company that primarily intermediates derivative transactions between Nomura Global Financial Products Inc. (NGFP) and market counterparties. NGFP is not rated and is guaranteed by Nomura Securities Co. Ltd. (A-/Stable/A-2) and Nomura Holdings Inc. (BBB+/Stable/A-2).
We lowered our rating on NDPI to reflect its dependency on the rating on Nomura Securities Co. Ltd., which provides a guarantee to NGFP, following its downgrade (see "Various Rating Actions Taken On Japanese Banks On Increasing Industry Risk," Aug. 1, 2019).
We will continue to review whether, in our view, the current rating remains consistent with our criteria.
