KBRA's rating is based on the State's very strong financial management policies and practices, its strong financial position and liquidity and a diverse economy anchored by financial services, chemicals and related industries, the healthcare sector and higher education. KBRA views the financial position of the State as very strong based on its conservative budgeting policies, its comprehensive and timely process of revenue estimation, high levels of financial reserves and strong liquidity position. The State's budgetary General Fund revenue sources reflect the importance of the financial services and corporate activities industry and historically these revenues have shown some volatility. In KBRA's view, the State is somewhat reliant on these revenue sources for its budgetary General Fund operations; however, this concern is offset by the State's conservative management of its finances, its revenue estimation process and the State's ability to adjust disbursements.

The Stable Outlook reflects the State's strong financial management framework, including the Delaware Economic and Financial Advisory Council (DEFAC) revenue estimation process and conservative budgeting practices, which KBRA believes will continue to support the State's strong financial performance. The outlook also reflects KBRA's recognition of the State's ongoing efforts to maintain its leading role in corporate business development and the financial services industry.
