Fitch Withdraws Probusinessbank's Ratings Without Affirmation
December 22, 2014 Fitch Ratings

Fitch placed PBB's ratings on Rating Watch Negative (RWN) on 22 October 2014. The rating action reflected Fitch's concerns about the liquidity of the bank's securities book, as well as uncertainty concerning the recent review of the bank by the Central Bank of Russia.
