CREDIT RATING ANNOUNCEMENT
The City hereby notifies its debt investors that Moody’s Investor Services South Africa Proprietary Limited
(“Moody’s”) has affirmed the long-term and short-term national scale issuer and debt ratings of Aaa.za/P-
1.za. A negative outlook has been maintained.
The credit ratings reflect Moody’s view of the City’s strong financial performance supported by its prudent
financial management, large and diversified economic base and predictable sources of revenue from
property taxes and service charges. The City has consistently reported robust operating surplus, strong
liquidity compared with that of its peers in South Africa and low debt (expected to increase gradually over
the next three years). The City’s credit profile is constrained by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic,
which has weakened the City's operating performance. However, the City's overall financial performance
remains stronger than that of its rated peers in South Africa.
