Fitch Downgrades Argentine Corporates

Fitch Ratings-Chicago: Fitch Ratings has downgraded the foreign currency IDR of all rated Argentine corporates following yesterday's sovereign ratings downgrade. Fitch has also affirmed the associated local currency issuer default ratings. Yesterday, Fitch downgraded the Argentine sovereign's foreign and local currency IDRs to restricted default (RD) from 'B-'and the country ceiling to CCC from B-. The sovereign downgrade reflects the expiration of the 30-day grace period to cure the missed coupon payments on its discount bonds issued under foreign law.The Argentine corporates rating downgrade also reflects the weakening macroeconomic environment in which they operate. The default by the Argentine government is likely to lead to higher inflation and will further pressure an economy that is already contracting. The downgrades reflect the additional operating cash flow pressure corporates will face, as well as the difficulty they will face in obtaining financing in the local market. The negative rating action also reflects the increased likelihood that foreign exchange will become even more difficult to obtain.Fitch has taken the following rating actions;Alto Palermo S.A.
