惠譽確認香港與台灣星展銀行評等為 ‘AA-’;展望穩定

(The following statement was released by the rating agency) HONG KONG/TAIPEI, February 14 (Fitch) 惠譽國際信用評等公司今日確認星展銀行(香港)(香港星展銀)與星展(台灣)商業銀行(台灣星展銀)長期發行人違約評等(IDR)為‘AA-’。同時,惠譽確認台灣星展銀 之國內長期評等為 ‘AAA(twn)’。 評等展望皆為穩定。詳細評等結果列示於本新聞稿末。 主要評等考量 長期發行人違約評等,國內長期評等及支援評等 評等確認係反映惠譽認為母公司星展銀行(星展銀,AA-/展望穩定) 於必要時提供其在香港與台灣的完全持有子公司支援的強健能力與意願將持續。香港星展銀與台灣星展銀的長期發行人違約評等和評等展望與星展銀維持一至,乃基於兩家子公司在集 團之核心子公司地位,有鑒於母子公司間在管理,策略發展與營運方面的高度整合。 惠譽預期兩子公司將持續支持集團拓展大中華區域策略。香港星展銀在集團內扮演舉足輕重的角色並有良好的獲利貢獻紀錄,其資產於2016年上半年底占集團股東權益的135% 。台灣星展銀資產占集團股東權益的35%,然其將受惠於母公司星展銀行為維持其信譽而提供的高度支援。 支援評等 ‘1’反映惠譽認為母公司在必要時提供支援的可能性極高。 台灣星展銀的國內長期評等是在國內評等等級中之最高評級為AAA(twn),主要反映星展銀相對台灣受評機構的強健信用品質。 同時,惠譽並無受予香港星展銀或台灣星展銀自身實力評等,主要考量其與星展銀在營運上的高度整合。 評等敏感性 長期發行人違約評等,國內長期評等及支援評等 若惠譽針對星展銀提供即時支援的意願與能力的看法有所變動,將連帶影響香港星展銀和台灣星展銀的長期發行人違約評等及支援評等。任何星展銀的評等改變將同步影響香港星展銀 和台灣星展銀的長期發行人違約評等。 若星展銀的長期發行人違約評等被調降至低於台灣主權評等(AA-/Stable),台灣星展銀的國內長期評等將被調降。台灣星展銀的國內長期評等已在最高評級,所以並無調 升之可能。 註:此為英文全文之中文譯本,若與原英文版本有任何出入,請以英文版為準。 詳細評等結果列示如下: 星展銀行(香港) 長期發行人違約評等(IDR) 確認為 ‘AA-’;評等展望穩定 短期外幣IDR 確認為 ‘F1+’ 支援評等確認為 ‘1’ 星展(台灣)商業銀行 長期發行人違約評等(IDR) 確認為 ‘AA-’;評等展望穩定 短期外幣IDR 確認為 ‘F1+’ 國內長期評等確認為 ‘AAA(twn)’;評等展望穩定 國內短期評等確認為 ‘F1+(twn)’ 支援評等確認為 ‘1’ Contact: Primary Analyst Sabine Bauer (DBSHK) Senior Director +852 2263 9966 Fitch (Hong Kong) Limited 19/F Man Yee Building 68 Des Voeux Road Central Hong Kong Jenifer Chou, CFA, FRM (DBS Taiwan) Director +886 2 8175 7605 Fitch Australia Pty Ltd, Taiwan Branch Suite 1306, 13F, 205, Tun Hwa N.

Reproduction or retransmission in whole or in part is prohibited except by permission. All rights reserved. In issuing and maintaining its ratings and in making other reports (including forecast information), Fitch relies on factual information it receives from issuers and underwriters and from other sources Fitch believes to be credible. Fitch conducts a reasonable investigation of the factual information relied upon by it in accordance with its ratings methodology, and obtains reasonable verification of that information from independent sources, to the extent such sources are available for a given security or in a given jurisdiction. The manner of Fitch’s factual investigation and the scope of the third-party verification it obtains will vary depending on the nature of the rated security and its issuer, the requirements and practices in the jurisdiction in which the rated security is offered and sold and/or the issuer is located, the availability and nature of relevant public information, access to the management of the issuer and its advisers, the availability of pre-existing third-party verifications such as audit reports, agreed-upon procedures letters, appraisals, actuarial reports, engineering reports, legal opinions and other reports provided by third parties, the availability of independent and competent third- party verification sources with respect to the particular security or in the particular jurisdiction of the issuer, and a variety of other factors. Users of Fitch’s ratings and reports should understand that neither an enhanced factual investigation nor any third-party verification can ensure that all of the information Fitch relies on in connection with a rating or a report will be accurate and complete. Ultimately, the issuer and its advisers are responsible for the accuracy of the information they provide to Fitch and to the market in offering documents and other reports. In issuing its ratings and its reports, Fitch must rely on the work of experts, including independent auditors with respect to financial statements and attorneys with respect to legal and tax matters. Further, ratings and forecasts of financial and other information are inherently forward-looking and embody assumptions and predictions about future events that by their nature cannot be verified as facts. As a result, despite any verification of current facts, ratings and forecasts can be affected by future events or conditions that were not anticipated at the time a rating or forecast was issued or affirmed. The information in this report is provided “as is” without any representation or warranty of any kind, and Fitch does not represent or warrant that the report or any of its contents will meet any of the requirements of a recipient of the report. A Fitch rating is an opinion as to the creditworthiness of a security. This opinion and reports made by Fitch are based on established criteria and methodologies that Fitch is continuously evaluating and updating. Therefore, ratings and reports are the collective work product of Fitch and no individual, or group of individuals, is solely responsible for a rating or a report. The rating does not address the risk of loss due to risks other than credit risk, unless such risk is specifically mentioned. Fitch is not engaged in the offer or sale of any security. All Fitch reports have shared authorship. Individuals identified in a Fitch report were involved in, but are not solely responsible for, the opinions stated therein. The individuals are named for contact purposes only. A report providing a Fitch rating is neither a prospectus nor a substitute for the information assembled, verified and presented to investors by the issuer and its agents in connection with the sale of the securities. Ratings may be changed or withdrawn at any time for any reason in the sole discretion of Fitch. Fitch does not provide investment advice of any sort. Ratings are not a recommendation to buy, sell, or hold any security. Ratings do not comment on the adequacy of market price, the suitability of any security for a particular investor, or the tax-exempt nature or taxability of payments made in respect to any security. Fitch receives fees from issuers, insurers, guarantors, other obligors, and underwriters for rating securities. Such fees generally vary from US$1,000 to US$750,000 (or the applicable currency equivalent) per issue. In certain cases, Fitch will rate all or a number of issues issued by a particular issuer, or insured or guaranteed by a particular insurer or guarantor, for a single annual fee. Such fees are expected to vary from US$10,000 to US$1,500,000 (or the applicable currency equivalent). The assignment, publication, or dissemination of a rating by Fitch shall not constitute a consent by Fitch to use its name as an expert in connection with any registration statement filed under the United States securities laws, the Financial Services and Markets Act of 2000 of the United Kingdom, or the securities laws of any particular jurisdiction. Due to the relative efficiency of electronic publishing and distribution, Fitch research may be available to electronic subscribers up to three days earlier than to print subscribers. For Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan and South Korea only: Fitch Australia Pty Ltd holds an Australian financial services license (AFS license no. 337123) which authorizes it to provide credit ratings to wholesale clients only.
