South Taranaki District Council #AA-/A-1+# Ratings Affirmed, Outlook Remains Stable Stcoks—17 Apr 18

S&P Global Ratings--17 Apr--S&P Global Ratings
RATING ACTION

On April 17, 2018, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'AA-' long-term foreign-currency and local-currency and 'A-1+' short-term issuer credit ratings on South Taranaki District Council (South Taranaki), a New Zealand local government. The outlook on the long-term ratings remains stable.

OUTLOOK
The stable outlook reflects our expectation that South Taranaki will deliver on its capital works program during the next few years without a significant increase in debt.
Downside scenario

Downward pressure on the ratings could occur if the council's after-capital-account deficits are larger or more prolonged than we currently forecast, resulting in a greater rise in debt. This could happen, for instance, if capital expenditure is higher than expected without offsetting growth in revenue.

Upside scenario

Upward pressure on the ratings could occur if South Taranaki's budgetary position improves, resulting in a period of after-capital-account surpluses, and if the council reduces its tax-supported debt burden to a level more in line with its 'AA' rated peers. In addition, upward pressure could occur if South Taranaki's economic performance improves, with greater diversification of industries and solid populati
