TRIS Rating Assigns Company Rating of LOXLEY at BBB+ with Stable Outlook Stcoks—02 Oct 15

กรุงเทพฯ--2 ต.ค.--TRIS Rating

TRIS Rating has assigned the company rating of Loxley PLC (LOXLEY) at "BBB+" with "stable" outlook. The rating reflects LOXLEY's diverse range of businesses and long-established relationships with its clients and suppliers. The rating also incorporates the sustained cash flow from sizable dividends received from its profit-making associate companies. Conversely, the rating is tempered by LOXLEY's relatively low profitability and the volatility of its revenue stream, which is largely project-based revenue.

The "stable" outlook reflects the expectation that LOXLEY can sustain its competitive position as it bids for projects and continues to show a sustainable level of project-based revenue. In addition, the company will continue to benefit from its diverse range of businesses and obtain considerable returns from its profitable associate companies. A rating upgrade is unlikely over the next 12-18 months but could occur if LOXLEY could significantly improve its profit margin and if its recent investments show notable payoffs. In contrast, downward rating pressure would emerge should LOXLEY experience a steep downturn in revenue, a further drop in profitability, or a material decline in amount of dividends it receives.

LOXLEY's business profile is satisfactory, underpinned by its diverse sources of revenue f
