Fitch assigns Sri Lanka's USD bonds final 'B' rating



Fitch Ratings has assigned a final rating of 'B' to the following bonds issued by Sri Lanka on 7 March 2019:


* USD1 billion 6.85% bond due 2024


* USD1.4 billion 7.85% bond due 2029


This replaces the expected rating of 'B (EXP)' that Fitch assigned on 6 March 2019.


The ratings are in line with Sri Lanka's Long-Term Foreign-Currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) of 'B' with a Stable Outlook.


The ratings would be sensitive to any changes in Sri Lanka's Long-Term Foreign-Currency IDR. Fitch downgraded Sri Lanka's Long-Term Foreign- and Local-Currency IDRs to 'B' from 'B+', with a Stable Outlook, on 3 December 2018.
