S&P truer med at nedjustere Grækenland yderligere

Ratingsbureauet Standard & Poors truede i går med at nedjustere sin græske rating yderligere en eller to punkter.

S&P skriver:
* We are assessing the credit implications of the proposed European Stability Mechanism (ESM) that may govern EU sovereign bonds beginning in July 2013.
* Specifically, we believe that assigning “preferred creditor” status to future official lending via the ESM could be detrimental to the ability of non-official holders of sovereign debt to be repaid.
* Since the details of the plan are still emerging, we are placing our ‘BB+’ long-term sovereign credit rating on Greece on CreditWatch with negative implications.
* The negative CreditWatch placement reflects our belief that Greece might be a future recipient of ESM funding.
