S&P revises SBAB Bank AB outlook to negative

Due to a weakening economic outlook for Sweden, Standard and Poor's has revised SBAB Bank´s outlook from stable to negative. At the same time the long- and shortterm credit ratings have been affirmed.

On 20 November 2012, Standard and Poor's revised SBAB Bank's outlook from stable to
negative. The long- and short-term credit ratings have been affirmed at A+ and A-1. The
revision was based on indications of a sharper economic slowdown in Sweden than
previously expected, leading S&P to conclude that economic risks for the Swedish banking
industry are increasing.
