On September 26, 2016 an international agency Standard & Poor’s Global Ratings assigned TGC-1 long-term and short-term ratings ‘ÂÂ+/Â’ according to the international scale with ‘stable’ outlook. Additionally, TGC-1 was rated ‘ruAA+’ according to the national scale.
From July 14, 2017, it will no longer be possible to use S&P’s national scale ratings for regulatory purposes due to the launch of new Russian regulations for the credit rating industry. Consequently, S&P’s Global Ratings decided to withdraw its Russia national scale ratings. Thus, as of June 2, 2017, TGC-1’s affirmed rating of 'ruAA+’ has been withdrawn.
The decision to withdraw the national scale ratings will not affect the global (international) credit ratings affirmed by the agency.
