Fitch Publishes 2014 Comparative Statistics Book for Chilean Corporate Issuers

June 6, 2014



SANTIAGO, Chile--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Fitch Ratings has published its 2014 'Comparative Statistics Book' for Chilean Corporate Issuers.

The Chilean Comparative Statistics Book contains detailed financial information about 68 rated Chilean corporates. This special report also includes a list of key financial indicators, as well as median ratios by rating category. The sustainability of these credit protection measures is evaluated over a period of time to determine an issuer's ability to meet its financial obligations in a timely manner.

In addition to quantitative analysis, Fitch also uses qualitative analysis to assess the business and financial risks of fixed-income issuers. The qualitative aspect of Fitch's corporate ratings focuses on issuer's policies in relation to operating strategies, acquisitions and divestitures, financial leverage targets, dividend policies, and financial goals.

The full report is available on the Fitch Ratings' web sites at 'www.fitchratings.com.' and 'www.fitchratings.cl' or by clicking on the link.
