Republic of Iceland Ratings Raised To 'A/A-1' Outlook Stable

• We believe that the recent lifting of most of the remaining capital controls and
the conclusion of an agreement with the owners of offshore krona assets strengthen
Iceland's external profile.
• We are therefore raising our long- and short-term ratings on Iceland to 'A/A-1'
from 'A-/A-2'.
• The stable outlook reflects our view that the potential for improvements in
Iceland's public finances is balanced by the risk of the domestic economy
overheating over the next two years.
