The stable outlook incorporates MARC's expectations that the traffic demand for the KL-Karak and ECE1 would continue to support consistency in ANIH's financial metrics, in particular the maintenance of FSCR levels commensurate with the current rating together with the scheduled toll increase in January 2015.
Furthermore, the current traffic volume of the KL-Karak and ECE1 has exceeded traffic projections for FY2013, providing additional comfort.
Hence, ANIH's credit profile may come under pressure as a result of potential delays in the toll hikes which will see toll rates for the KL-Karak and ECE1 increase by 17 per cent to 21 per cent respectively.
