13:41 EDTAFLS&P raises Aflac rating to 'A' from 'A-'
Standard & Poor's Rating Service raised its long-term counterparty credit rating on Aflac Inc. to "A" from "A-". "We are raising our rating on the nonoperating holding company, Aflac Inc., making it two notches, instead of the standard three, lower than the financial strength rating of the operating companies. We based the upgrade on very strong fixed-charge coverage ratio, 15x as of year-end 2013, moderate financial leverage--including debt, hybrids, unfunded pension obligations, and net present value of operating leverage--for the current rating level, strong operating company dividend capacity, and liquidity at the holding company relative to its ongoing obligations, such as interest and principal payments on debt," said Standard & Poor's.
