RAM Ratings has received notification from Alliance Investment Bank Berhad, as the Facility Agent, that Trinity Asia Ventures Berhad (the Issuer) fully redeemed the RM52.0 mil Tranche 1 IMTN under its RM1.5 bil Sukuk Musharakah Programme on 22 November 2021, ahead of the sukuk’s expected maturity date of 23 March 2022. We have accordingly withdrawn the AA3/Stable rating of the Tranche 1 IMTN and no longer have any rating obligation in respect of it. There were no outstanding obligations under the accompanying RM5 mil Tranche 1 ICP facility. Guaranteed by Danajamin Nasional Berhad (rated AAA/Stable), the ICP facility is cancelled upon full redemption of the Tranche 1 IMTN. Trinity Asia Ventures is a special-purpose funding vehicle of Trinity Group Sdn Bhd (the Sponsor).

The Tranche 1 IMTN was backed by sale and purchase agreements (SPAs) signed with buyers of a high-rise residential development – Trinity Lemanja – in Kepong, Kuala Lumpur. Following the issuance of Certificate of Practical Completion (CCC) on 23 September 2021, the delivery of vacant possession (VP) started at the end of October 2021, well ahead of the legal CCC and VP dates in February 2022. From monthly monitoring reports, we note that the developer and the Issuer have duly complied with the terms of the transaction.

The credit rating is not a recommendation to purchase, sell or hold a security, inasmuch as it does not comment on the security’s market price or its suitability for a particular investor, nor does it involve any audit by RAM Ratings. The credit rating also does not reflect the legality and enforceability of financial obligations.

RAM Ratings receives compensation for its rating services, normally paid by the issuers of such securities or the rated entity, and sometimes third parties participating in marketing the securities, insurers, guarantors, other obligors, underwriters, etc. The receipt of this compensation has no influence on RAM Ratings’ credit opinions or other analytical processes. In all instances, RAM Ratings is committed to preserving the objectivity, integrity and independence of its ratings. Rating fees are communicated to clients prior to the issuance of rating opinions. While RAM Ratings reserves the right to disseminate the ratings, it receives no payment for doing so, except for subscriptions to its publications.

Similarly, the disclaimers above also apply to RAM Ratings’ credit-related analyses and commentaries, where relevant.
