SEOUL, KOREA - POSCO will dispose of all its stake in SK Telecom it has held since 2000. The steel maker played the role of a "white knight" by acquiring a 6.5-percent stake when the mobile telecom service operator was in danger of being swallowed up by Sovereign Capital Partners, an international private equity fund firm. POSCO decided to sell off the stake as part of an effort to improve its financial standing, but it will have to incur losses as the current SK Telecom share price is below that of 14 years ago.

The Park Geun-hye government has recently received a report card on its economic policy over the past two years. Since the Park Geun-hye government emerged a few months after the Japanese government changed hands in 2012 and since both governments unveiled their economic policies (dubbed as ‘Geunhyenomics’ and ‘Abenomics’, respectively) over the same period, many have been tempted to draw a comparison between Geunhyenomics and Abenomics.

무디스가 한전의 신용등급을 한국 정부와 같은 ‘Aa3’으로 상향조정했다. 국제 신용평가 기관인 무디스는 한국전력공사(이하 한전)의 기업신용등급을 종전의 ‘A1’에서 ‘Aa3’으로 상향조정했다고 29일 밝혔다. 등급전망은 ‘안정적’이다.

이번 신용등급 상향조정은 한전이 6년만에 적자를 탈피하고 흑자로 전환하는 등 영업실적이 개선된 점과 한전에 대한 정부의 지원 수준이 매우 높다는 점을 고려한 것이라고 무디스 측은 전했다.

특히, 조환익 사장 취임이후 재무건전성 강화를 위해 추진하고 있는 고강도 자구노력이 신용등급 상향이라는 값진 성과를 가져왔다는 한전 측의 설명이다.
