Ratings agency Moody’s has cutĀ Greece’s debt rating by three notches to Ca on Monday, leaving it just one notch above what is considered default, and said the chance of a default is now “virtually 100%”.

The ratings agency warned that last week’s bailout package agreed by eurozone leaders will make it easier for Greece to reduce its debt, but the country still faced medium-term solvency challenges and there were significant risks in implementing the required reforms.

“The announced EU programme implies that the probability of a distressed exchange, and hence a default, on Greek government bonds is virtually 100%,” the agency said.

“[Greece's] stock of debt will still be well in excess of 100% of GDP for many years and it will still face very significant implementation risks to fiscal and economic reform,” it added.
