S&P Global revises rating outlook on Petronas to stable

Quick Summary AI Powered

PETALING JAYA: S&P Global Ratings has revised its rating outlook on Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) to "stable” from "negative” for foreign and local currency long-term ratings.

S&P said it may lower the rating on Petronas if it lowers its sovereign rating on Malaysia.“We could also downgrade Petronas if its relationship with the sovereign changes materially and the company’s balance sheet and liquidity weaken significantly.“We view this scenario as remote because it would require a substantial deterioration in the company’s aa SACP,” it said.

The outlook revision on the sovereign rating reflects our expectation that Malaysia’s steady growth momentum and strong external position will remain in place over the next two years.
