Fitch Assigns CP ALLs New Unsecured Bonds at #A-(tha)# Stcoks—28 Mar 17

Bangkok--28 Mar--Fitch Ratings

Fitch Ratings (Thailand) Limited has assigned CP ALL Public Company Limited's (CP ALL, A(tha)/Stable) new senior unsecured bonds a National Long-Term Rating of 'A-(tha)'. The bonds, totalling up to THB4.5 billion, will be due in 2029. The proceeds will be used to repay the Thailand-based retailer's maturing bonds.

The rating on the senior unsecured bonds is one notch lower than CP ALL's 'A(tha)' National Long-Term Rating due to a significant amount of prior-ranking debt, which made up 3.5x of the company's EBITDA in 2016.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

High Financial Leverage: Fitch expects CP ALL's FFO-adjusted net leverage to remain high at above 3.5x beyond 2018. Deleveraging at CP ALL has been slower than we had expected because of a weak domestic economy in past two years. Sale of shares in subsidiary Siam Makro Public Company Limited (Makro) is also unlikely to take place in the next 12 months, in our view.

Moderate-but-Defensive Growth: Fitch expects CP ALL's sales to increase by 9%-10% a year in 2017-2018, driven mainly by new store openings and a recovery in same-store sales growth to 3%-4% a year for both 7-Eleven and Makro stores (2016: 2.4% and 4.1%, respectively), in line with the domestic economic recovery. The company also continues to benefit from the "defensive" nature of it
