Moody’s says creditworthiness outlook for Cyprus positive

Moody’s raised European Union member Cyprus’ Caa3 government bond rating outlook from “negative” to “positive,”Th pandora sale e Mediterranean island country has taken important steps to slash its deficit and implement new fiscal consolidation measures. The general government deficit was 5.4 percent of GPD in 2013, down from 6.4 percent a year before, Moody’s said.

The island natio pandora sale n has also been fulfilling its obligations to international lenders, Moody’s added a sign of increased con pandora sale fidence for further support. Cyprus received a 10 billion euro ($13 billion) troika bailout package last year in return for closing the country’s second largest bank, Laiki, and setting up a one time tax on bank deposits of at least 100,000 euros in its largest lender, Bank of Cyprus.

Moody’s cautioned that the Caa3 rating reflects the “still elevated risk of Cyprus defaulting on its debt, or undergoing debt restricting over the medium term given the highly interrelated economic, banking sector and public finance risks it continues to face.”

“While Moody’s acknowledges that the government has exhibited the financial flexibility to consolidate public finances, these measures are on a much smaller scale than the risks posed by potential protracted economic pandora sale recession,” the agency said.

Moody’s raises Ireland’s credit rating to investment grade

The Irish economy now has a positive outlook, after years of tax hikes and spend pandora sale ing cuts aimed at bringing the country’s finances under control, according to a forecast published by the Moody’s ratings agen pandora sale cy on Friday.

Recognizing Dublin’s progress, Moody’s upgraded Ireland’s credit rating from Ba1, considered junk status, to an investment grade Baa3. That means Moody’s now considers Irish government bonds a relatively safe investment.

‘Major improvement in investor sentiment’

“The decision by Moody’s to upgrade Ireland’s credit rating reflects the significant progress that has been made in stabilizing the public finances, restructuring the banking sector and, most importantly, growing the economy and creating jobs,” Irish Finance Minister Michael Noonan pandora sale said in a press release on Friday.

“Ireland is now rated at investment grade by all of the major credit rating agencies, highlighting the major improvement in investor sentiment towards Ireland,” Noonan said.

The two other major ratings agencies, Standard Poor’s and Fitch, had already given Ireland an investment grade rating of BBB+.

Last week, Ireland issued 10 year bonds on international capital markets for the first time since its December exit from the EU IMF bailout program. Dublin successfully raised 3.75 billion euros ($5.1 billion) during that auction.
