S&P Global has upgraded Metso Outotec’s credit rating to BBB with stable outlook. The upgrade is based on the successfully concluded integration and realized synergies, portfolio rationalization through selected divestments, and the company proactively managing its pricing and costs to curb the effects of inflation, as well as the good demand in Metso Outotec's end markets.
“We are very pleased of this upgrade, which confirms the solid delivery on the integration as well as on improving our financial performance. One of our financial targets is to have an investment grade credit rating, and the BBB rating from S&P Global makes our rating even more solid,” says CFO Eeva Sipilä.
S&P Global’s report can be found on the company’s website.
Metso Outotec has also a Baa2 credit rating from Moody’s with stable outlook.
