In announcing its decision, Fitch says their rating action, "...considers the solid financial condition of PRA's operating subsidiaries as well as consistent profitability, financial and operating flexibility, and highly experienced management team.

This is especially meaningful in these uncertain economic times and speaks to our proven ability to produce excellent results through a disciplined, long-term focus on our customers' needs."
