S&P lowers Greek long-term rating by one notch to CCC-
S&P lowered on Monday Greece’s long-term rating by one notch to ‘CCC-‘ from ‘CCC’ with negative outlook. Greece’s rating by S&P is now the lowest among the rating agencies with Fitch’s rating at ‘CCC’ and Moody’s at ‘Caa2’, which is equivalent to ‘CCC’.
Moreover, the rating agency stresses that the deviation also reflects further deterioration (since the last rating action) of Greek banks’ liquidity, which led to the imposition of capital controls.
