MOODY’S AFFIRMS TRANSNET’S Ba2 CORPORATE FAMILY RATING WITH A NEGATIVE OUTLOOK
Transnet Noteholders are informed that on 10 June 2021, Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") has
affirmed the Ba2 long term corporate family rating (CFR) and the Aa2.za national scale senior
unsecured Medium-Term Note (MTN) rating of Transnet.
Transnet's baseline credit assessment (BCA), a measure of stand-alone credit quality prior to any
assessment of potential extraordinary government support, has been lowered to ba3 from ba2 with
a negative outlook.
Transnet’s strategic approach is expected to set the company on a growth path, and improve
financial and operational performance as the company navigates the impact of COVID-19 on its
business. The strong partnerships with the investor community will remain integral as Transnet
implements its plans.
