VIS Reaffirms Entity Ratings of Best Exports (Pvt.) Limited
 

Karachi, December 30, 2019: VIS Credit Rating Company Limited (VIS) has reaffirmed the entity ratings of Best Exports (Pvt.) Limited (BEL) at ‘BBB/A-2’ (Triple B/A-Two). The medium to long-term rating of ‘BBB’ denotes adequate credit quality coupled with reasonable and sufficient protection factors. Moreover, risk factors are considered variable with possible changes in the economy. The short-term rating of ‘A-2’ denotes good certainty of timely payments. Liquidity factors and company fundamentals are considered sound and risk factors considered small. Outlook on the assigned ratings is ‘Stable’. The previous rating action was announced on November 5, 2018.

BEL is a small sized weaving unit that is primarily involved in manufacturing and export of grey, bleached, dyed and made ups consisting of bed sets, pillow covers, quilt covers, cotton bags, table covers and curtains. The assigned ratings take into account BEL’s presence in export-oriented value-added textile segment. The management’s focus on expanding current operations and growth in value-added exports bodes well for the company. Adequate liquidity and coverages has provided comfort to the assigned ratings. However, the ratings remained constrained by relatively limited scale of operations. Further, maintenance of low leveraged capital structure is considered a key rating factor.
