May 22 (Reuters) - Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on Wednesday cut its long-term corporate credit and senior unsecured ratings on SNC-Lavalin Group Inc to BBB from BBB-plus.

The outlook is negative.

S&P said the downgrade reflects its expectation of "weakened profitability as high administrative costs resulting from the company's recent ethics issues will continue to affect margins."
