Moody's Investors Service has assigned a Baa1 rating to the proposed senior unsecured USD notes to be issued by POSCO (Baa1 stable). "POSCO's Baa1 issuer and senior unsecured ratings reflect the company's leading position in Korea's steel sector, diversified product mix, and globally competitive cost position, as well as its robust financial flexibility," says Sean Hwang, a Moody's Analyst. POSCO's operating income declined 23% to KRW3.3 trillion for the first nine months of 2019, mainly reflecting increased raw material costs and insufficient selling price hikes to pass through the cost increases.

Moody's Investors Service has today placed the Ba3 rating for Mong Duong Finance Holdings BV's USD senior secured notes on review for downgrade. Mong Duong Finance is a finance entity, whose credit profile is closely linked to AES-VCM Mong Duong Power Company Limited (MDP), because of several structural features.

In March 2018, the Chilean government unveiled big news: Corporate investors, including South Korean electronics giant Samsung, would build three factories in Chile to produce battery parts for electric vehicles. Chile had lured the companies with an enticing offer. In exchange for helping the South American country, the world's No. 2 miner of lithium, jumpstart its own EV battery industry, the firms would get a guaranteed supply of the coveted metal at attractive prices for nearly three decades amid a global race to lock down supplies.

SANTIAGO/SEOUL, June 21(Reuters) - South Korea's POSCO has pulled out of a project to build battery parts in Chile, the Asian steelmaker said, little more than a year after winning guaranteed access to cheap lithium from top producer Albemarle. POSCO, together with partner Samsung SDI, won a 2018 Chilean government tender to build a battery-parts factory in the country's northern desert in exchange for a 27-year supply of low-cost lithium. The problem, POSCO told Reuters, is that the project it proposed requires lithium hydroxide, a type of the metal increasingly favored by makers of batteries for electric vehicles (EV) but one not produced by Albemarle in Chile.
