USD500m fixed-rate notes due November 2016 affirmed at ‘BBB-'; Outlook Stable

Key Rating Drivers

The rating on the notes is credit-linked to that of the Philippines as the notes are irrecoverably and unconditionally guaranteed by the Republic of Philippines. The rating action follows the affirmation of the Philippines’ Long-Term Foreign Currency Issuer Default Rating at ‘BBB-’ with a Stable Outlook on 25 March 2014.

Changes to the Philippines’ rating will result in a corresponding action on the notes’ rating.
