Naftogaz — Fitch upgrades rating outlook to positive

Fitch Ratings affirmed its rating on Naftogaz at B and upgraded the rating outlook to positive from stable following a sovereign rating action. While noting the company’s weak financial profile due to volatile gas prices, inability to collect receivables, and high required CAPEX, the agency said the Ukrainian government has strong incentive to support Naftogaz due to the company’s strategic importance. In other highlights, F/X risks remain high but are somewhat mitigated by a large F/X-denominated cash balance of $1.3bn (UAH 37bn; end-2020). Fitch expects Naftogaz to spend around $1bn p.a. on CAPEX and sees total dividends at less than $1bn over 2021-2022.
