NATIONSBANK'S $2.5 BILLION SHELF REGISTRATION RATED BY FITCH -- FITCH FINANCIAL WIRE --

 NEW YORK, Nov. 20 ~PRNewswire~ -- NationsBank Corp.'s (NYSE: NB) new $2.5 billion shelf registration is rated "A+" for senior debt, "A" for subordinated debt, and "A-" for preferred stock by Fitch. The credit trend is improving.
 Reflected in the ratings are the corporation's broadly diversified base of core retail funding, improving reserve coverage of nonperforming loans, expected material savings in overhead expenses which will enhance growing profitability, moderate loan to asset ratio, and above peer capital ratios.
 NationsBank's market position in the region from the mid-Atlantic to Texas gives the company access to a meaningful supply of core deposits. While this region is not without significant competitors, NationsBank's penetration will enable it to be a leader in liability product pricing, a strategy which Fitch expects the corporation to fully implement.
