S&P Lowers SAIF Corp. Ratings to 'BBBpi' from 'BBpi'.
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 14, 2003
Standard & Poor's Rating Services said today that it lowered its counterparty credit and financial strength ratings on SAIF Corp. (SAIF) to 'BBpi' from 'BBBpi'.
"This rating action was based on SAIF's decline in surplus, weak liquidity, high leverage, and geographic and product concentrations," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Allison MacCullough.
SAIF is licensed only in Oregon. The company is a not-for-profit, publicly owned workers' compensation company. SAIF was created by an act of the Oregon legislature to make inexpensive workers' compensation available to Oregon employers.
