Karachi, June 30, 2011: JCR-VIS Credit Rating Company Limited has maintained the medium to long-term entity rating of Security Investment Bank Limited (SIBL) at ‘A’ (Single A) and short term rating at ‘A-2’ (A-Two). Outlook on the ratings has been revised from ‘Negative’ to ‘Stable’.

The company has been operating with low debt leverage. Borrowings are largely secured against SIBL’s holding of government paper, with remaining assets providing adequate coverage against clean funds mobilized by the institution.

Over the last year, SIBL has considerably reduced its exposure against the stock market. Profitability in 2009 had taken a significant dip on account of revaluation losses on equity holdings. The company has reported a positive bottom line in 2010 and first quarter of the on-going year. Future volatility in earnings may be contained if stock market exposures are maintained at existing levels.

For further information on this rating announcement, please contact Ms. Sabeen Saleem, CFA (ext: 510) or Ms. Sobia Maqbool, CFA (ext: 506) at 92-21-35311861-70 or fax to 92-21-35311873.
