Moody's upgrades Suruga Bank to A3 with stable outlook.

Summary: The rating outlook is stable.

Moody's Japan K.K. has upgraded the long-term bank deposit ratings of Suruga Bank, Ltd. to A3 from B1.

Moody's has also affirmed the bank's Prime-2 short-term deposit ratings.

The rating outlook is stable.

The upgrade was prompted by the change in the bank's standalone bank financial strength rating (BFSR) to C- from D+. A BFSR of C- is equivalent to a baseline credit assessment (BCA) of b2, while the previous D+ was equivalent to b3.

The A3 rating incorporates two notches of support uplift from its BCA.

Moody's assumption of support is based on our assessment of a very high likelihood of systemic support for the bank in case of stress.

The following ratings were upgraded:

Long-term bank deposit rating (domestic currency): to A3 from B1

Long-term bank deposit rating (foreign currency): to A3 from B1

The following ratings were affirmed:

Short-term bank deposit rating (domestic currency): Prime-2

Short-term bank deposit rating (foreign currency): Prime-2
