AM Best Places Credit Ratings of Ocean International Reinsurance Company Limited Under Review With Developing Implications

gbafNews28

AM Best has placed under review with developing implications the Financial Strength Rating of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of a- of Ocean International Reinsurance Company Limited (Ocean Re) (Barbados).

The Credit Rating (rating) action follows the Feb. 20, 2020, announcement that Ocean Re and Energy Risk Indemnity Reinsurance Inc. (ERI Re) (Barbados) will merge its operations. The transaction has been executed and consummated, with all the required authorizations and permits obtained from Barbados Financial Services Commission (FSC) and relevant regulators. Because of the merger, ERI Re became the major shareholder of Ocean Re, without any changes in Ocean Res management team.

The under-review status reflects AM Bests necessity to reassess the financial strength of Ocean Re after the merger, taking into account its corporate structure, balance sheet strength and revised strategy. The developing implications on the under-review status recognizes the ongoing geographical diversification that could derive from the merger as well as potential improvements in its capital position.

AM Best will review any material changes to Ocean Res financial profile to assess the impact on its ratings. If there are no material deviations to the companys projections, the most likely outcome would be an affirmation of the current ratings.

This press release relates to Credit Ratings that have been published on AM Bests website.
