Standard & Poor´s recognizes high creditworthiness of K+S (Credits: K+S)
Today, the rating agency Standard & Poor´s (S&P) upgraded the long-term rating of K+S to BBB- (previously: BB+). K+S is therefore now rated in the investment grade range again and consequently considered to be a solid borrower. The rating outlook is stable.
“We are very pleased about this strategic milestone that we have now reached. We have been striving for this achievement for several years,” says Dr. Burkhard Lohr, Chairman of the K+S Board of Executive Directors. S&P thereby recognizes our significantly improved financial position and high creditworthiness. Lohr: “This provides us with advantages in corporate financing.”
S&P justifies the improvement with significant deleveraging as well as the cautious financial policy. This has already been the fourth upgrade of the K+S rating since fall 2021.
