Eskom's Chief Financial Officer, Anoj Singh, says the downgrade is driven by the downgrade of the South Africa's sovereign credit rating.


"Eskom has secured 53% of this fiscal year's funding requirement and we remain resolute that we will fully execute the required funding for the year, albeit under challenging market conditions," says Singh.

"Our liquidity levels remain healthy and Eskom's financial profile continues to improve and stabilise. Backed by the availability of the government guarantees and the stable financial profile; we do not foresee significant impediments in the execution of the remainder of the FY17/18 funding requirement."
