Cirtek Holdings Philippines Corp. has been assigned an above average capability to fulfill financial obligations by a local debt watcher.

In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange on Tuesday, Cirtek said the Philippine Rating Services Corp. (PhilRatings) gave the listed electronic manufacturer a “PRS A (corp.)” credit rating in relation to its three-year shelf registration for commercial papers (CPs) of up to P2 billion.

Based on PhilRating’s credit rating system, a company rated PRS A (corp.) has “an above average capacity to meet its financial commitments relative to that of other Philippine corporates.”

The company, however, is somewhat more susceptible to adverse changes in circumstances and economic conditions than higher-rated corporates, according to PhilRatings.

The debt watcher also gave Cirtek a stable outlook as “an indication as to the possible direction of any rating change within a one-year period and serves as a further refinement to the assigned credit rating for the guidance of investors, regulators, and the general public.

A stable outlook is defined as “the rating is likely to be maintained or to remain unchanged in the next twelve months.”

Cirtek is a fully integrated global technology company focused on wireless communication.

It is primarily engaged into the following related businesses:

the design, development and delivery of the wireless industry’s antenna solutions the manufacture of valued-added, highly integrated technology products the manufacture and sales of semiconductor packages as an independent subcontractor for outsourced semiconductor assembly, test and packaging services

For the first nine months of 2020, consolidated revenues fell by 14.4% year-on-year to $59.5 million.

Net income registered a decrease of 1.7% year-on-year to $3.6 million. -MDM, GMA News
