TORONTO, April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Standard & Poor's ("S&P"), a leading credit rating agency, has affirmed its BBB+/A-2 long-term and short-term counterparty ratings to Home Trust Company and BBB/A-2 to Home Capital Group Inc. (TSX:HCG). The outlook on both entities remains stable.

S&P stated that the stable outlook reflects S&P's view that Home Capital is well positioned to manage credit risks and competitive pressures across a range of future economic and housing market conditions. The ratings reflect the Company's strong capital position and consistent earnings performance,

"Home Trust is the only trust company in Canada, not a subsidiary of a major financial institution, to maintain an investment grade credit rating from Standard & Poor's," said Gerald M. Soloway, CEO of Home Capital and Home Trust. "We are pleased to have maintained our ratings, a reflection of our strong financial performance and enhanced risk profile."

Home Capital Group Inc. is a public company, traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange (HCG), operating through its principal subsidiary, Home Trust Company.
