Move over S&P, Moodys and Fitch! Thats the message an upcoming ratings agency is hoping to deliver to the worlds three biggest ratings agencies. At present, the Big3 dominate the market with over 95 percent of total country risk and company ratings.
PML-N has had a rather tough time ever since assuming government. It is plain bad luck that it has been greeted by escalating oil price in the international markets.

International Industries (INIL) has reported a 72 percent jump in net profits for the financial year ending June 2013, thanks mostly to substantial reduction in financial changes.
No prizes for guessing who has emerged as the biggest beneficiary from the (temporary?) resolution of circular debt. Now that Pakistan State Oil (PSO) is free from the clutches of circular debt—at least for now—improved liquidity to boost profitability was resounding ahead of FY13 financial result.
