The standalone creditworthiness of MGEC is regarded by Fitch as weaker than the support-driven rating.
The Stable Outlook reflects Fitch's expectation of an ongoing ability and propensity on the part of the shareholders to support MGEC until the sale process has been completed and its obligations under its issued debt have been repaid.
The ratings are primarily sensitive, positively or negatively, to a change in the co-owners' perceived ability to support MGEC.
The change in outlook on MGEC to negative from stable reflects our opinion that the reduction in size and scope of GECC's operations could negatively impact MGEC's credit profile in terms of asset mix and profitability.
Despite the aforementioned challenges, the ratings affirmation is primarily driven by Moody's expectation that MGEC will maintain a strong financial profile.
