Outlooks On Four Regional Banks In Japan Revised Up To Ratings Affirmed Stcoks—20 Jun 18

TOKYO--20 Jun--S&P Global Ratings

TOKYO (S&P Global Ratings) June 20, 2018--S&P Global Ratings today said it has revised to stable from negative its outlooks on the long-term issuer credit ratings on Japan-based Chiba Bank Ltd., Hachijuni Bank Ltd., Iyo Bank Ltd., and Bank of Kyoto Ltd. In addition, we have affirmed our issuer and issue credit ratings on the banks (see list below).

We expect the stability of our ratings on the four banks to improve following our positive outlook revision on the sovereign rating on Japan in April 2018. This is because we factor into the ratings potential systemic support from the government. Another equally important factor behind today's rating actions is our view that each of the banks have unique strengths to help them cope with a persistently competitive environment and ease continuing pressure on their profitability. That would help the rating factors of these banks to remain stable compared with domestic peers, in our opinion.

Meanwhile, we maintain our view that there is at least a one-in-three chance in the next two years for us to revise downward our Banking Industry Country Risk Assessment (BICRA) for Japan. This could lead us to revise downward by one notch the anchor we apply on banks operating mainly in Japan, including the four banks. In addition, negative operating conditi
