First Citizens BncshrsInc Assigned Short-Term Ba3 & Long-Term Ba2 Credit Rating

Likewise, we do not consider factoring programs under sources of liquidity. Unlike asset-based lending (ABL) facilities, factoring is more of a sales transaction and not a loan. In addition, these transactions tend to be very short term. For this reason, we would not consider them a committed source of future liquidity over a 12-month period.First Citizens BncshrsInc Assigned Short-Term Ba3 & Long-Term Ba2 Credit Rating.

FFBW Inc Assigned Short-Term B3 & Long-Term B1 Credit Rating

For example, if a company incurred a large working capital inflow in the fourth quarter, which more than offset working capital outflows during the first three quarters, we would use the peak working capital outflows within our A/B and A-B calculation. However, we avoid double-counting when the working capital outflow is already captured through our assumption of peak CP amount.FFBW Inc Assigned Short-Term B3 & Long-Term B1 Credit Rating.

Ken Bancorporation Assigned Short-Term Caa2 & Long-Term B1 Credit Rating

Our liquidity uses include dividends and share repurchases that we expect under a stress scenario. Unlike other potential uses of liquidity, such as debt maturities or maintenance capital spending, we view dividends and share repurchases as more discretionary, although more so for the latter. For this reason, when evaluating a company's liquidity position, we may use a lower estimate of dividends and shareholder repurchases than in our base-case forecast based on our views of management and the company's track record in terms of shareholder returns and maintaining a certain minimum level of liquidity.Ken Bancorporation Assigned Short-Term Caa2 & Long-Term B1 Credit Rating.

Euroseas Ltd. Assigned Short-Term Ba1 & Long-Term Ba1 Credit Rating

If a company has a credit put that causes debt acceleration or collateral posting due to a downgrade of three notches or less, we would include these requirements under uses of liquidity, per paragraph 30 of the liquidity criteria. For example, if a 'BBB' rated company had a credit put that was triggered with a downgrade to speculative grade, we would include the corresponding cash requirement under uses of liquidity. This is because the criteria evaluate a company's liquidity position during times of stress, when potential downgrades are more likely.Euroseas Ltd.

BP Capital Markets America Inc. Assigned Short-Term B1 & Long-Term B2 Credit Rating

For companies that engage in reverse factoring--where accounts payable (AP) days are extended beyond the term customary for the industry and supply chain--we assess the likelihood and potential impact on liquidity of these arrangements ceasing to exist. In such a scenario, a company could be subject to material working capital outflows if AP days with its suppliers revert back to industry norms. Accordingly, we exclude these arrangements from sources of liquidity.BP Capital Markets America Inc. Assigned Short-Term B1 & Long-Term B2 Credit Rating. How Does Credit Rating Model Work?

When evaluating uses of liquidity, we include all debt maturities over the liquidity horizon that are either recourse to the company, or nonrecourse that we believe the company will support even in times of stress. In cases where the debt includes a put option held by debtholders, we will consider the date of the put option the effective debt maturity--i.e., we will assume the debt will need to be repaid/refinanced on the day the put can be first exercised.Guangzhou Restaurant Group Co Ltd Assigned Short-Term B2 & Long-Term B2 Credit Rating.
